Country: Myanmar

Coordinate: 27° 28' N, 97° 40' E
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: "The study focused on 26 villages and four forested sites within the Naungmung and Machanbaw townships" immediately to the south of Hkakaborazi National Park; "the four forested sites included Htonlardam, Namhti, Maza and Namsabum" and camera traps were only deployed at those sites

Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: grazing, hunting, mining, selective logging
MAT: 19.8
MAP: 3960.0
Habitat comments: "Selective extraction of commercial timber is legally permitted within these protected public forests. Paddy and shifting cultivation, hunting, mining, raising livestock and gathering of diverse non-timber forest products constitute the primary occupations of the relatively low human population in the area... The habitat is primarily subtropical broadleaved forest with patches of shifting cultivation, agricultural and degraded lands"

Sampling comments: "camera traps were deployed... at the four sites. Each camera trap was positioned near a salt lick or fruiting tree close to the end of every transect, with 16 traps deployed at any one time. Camera traps were left in the forest for 3035 days and deployed at 64 different positions at the four sites over the entire study period for a total of 1, 238 trap nights"; film cameras were used
