Country: Tanzania

Coordinate: 7° 1' S, 37° 38' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: altitudinal range 1220 to 1540 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: plantation
Protection: forest reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "mainly a plantation of several exotic species, such as Pinus sp., Eucalyptus sp., Cupressus spp., and Grevillea robusta. The latter is the dominant species"
Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 241
Years: 2011
Days: 3
Seasons: dry
Nets or traps: 15
Net or trap nights: 45
Sampling comments: the study used "mist nets (12 m, 16 mm mesh, four tier)... during the hot season (February 2011) and cold season (July 2011). During each season 15 mist nets were erected forming a T-shaped net line for 36 daylight hours and were operated from dawn (6:00) to dusk (18:00) for three consecutive days. The nets were located more than 100 m from the forest edge"
