Sampling comments: there was "a regular grid established on the western part of the INP. In total, we established 37 sites 4 km apart from each other, covering around 300 km2... In each of 37 sites, we installed two camera-traps 40 cm above ground level. We monitored all the sites simultaneously during three periods of three months each in three different years (from July to October 2009, from October 2010 to January 2011, and from February to May 2013)... we visited the sites every 20 days to replace films, batteries, silicon"
