Habitat comments: "The climate is monsoonal, with distinctive wet (Jun.-Sep.), cool (Oct.-Jan.), and dry (Feb.-May) seasons... More than 80 percent of the park is forested. Vegetation types include tropical rainforest, dry evergreen forest, hill evergreen forest, mixed deciduous forest, dry dipterocarp forest, and grassland... Mixed deciduous forest is the dominant type with hill and dry evergreen forest occupying higher elevations"

Sample size: 445
Years: 2003 - 2007
Nets or traps: 15
Net or trap nights: 6260
Camera type: analog
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: "Camera trap surveys were conducted from October 2003 through March 2007 with sampling conducted in each of KYNP’s 22 management zones... Teams surveyed two zones per month... we employed 15 [CamTrakker] camera traps... with an infrared sensor... During each month, four to eight camera traps were placed in each of the two survey zones dependent on the number of working cameras. We divided survey zones into 1-km2 blocks and randomly chose blocks for camera locations... All camera traps were operational 24 hours per day" (in other words, the 15 cameras were placed at numerous points throughout the park's 2, 168 km2 area)
