Country: Ivory Coast

Coordinate: 6° 13' N, 5° 2' W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: fragment
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: hunting, selective logging
MAT: 28.6
MAP: 1053.0
Habitat comments: general environment is "forest-savannah transitional zone"; sites are in "Three fragments of forest located within the rural domain... A great number of dead fallen trees were found mainly due to cutting by the farmers (or to wind damage). This damage was also due to selective logging, hunting and medicinal plants harvesting"
Life forms: ants
Sites: 3
Sampling methods: line transect, sieves, Winkler apparatus, pitfall traps, hand capture
Sample size: 591
Years: 2005
Seasons: wet or monsoon
Nets or traps: 30
Sampling comments: 3 sites each with a 200 m transect including 15 soil samples spaced 12 m apart, with a combination of pitfall traps, extraction using a mini-Winkler apparatus, hand sampling of sieved soil samples, and general hand sampling
"The study was carried out... during the long rainy season (April to October 2005)"
