Sampling comments: sampling was from "March to June 2014... Data collection was conducted in a 25 km2 RAPELD grid... This standard grid consists of six north-south and six east-west 5 km trails. The current study used 30 regularly spaced sample points distributed at 1km intervals along the east-west trails... we installed camera traps equipped with infrared triggers (Bushnell Trophy Cam, 8MP, Overland Park, KS, USA)... Cameras were therefore placed at 15 points for 30 consecutive days then immediately transferred to the remaining 15 points... Cameras functioned continuously (24 hours a day)"
