Sampling comments: "camera traps were used... along two 300-m transects... The first transect (termed agricultural) ran from the edge of the 6.5-ha hay field north into the surrounding upland forest, whereas the second transect (termed riparian) ran from a small wetland (~125 m2) east into the surrounding forest... We monitored each transect over a 32-d period (from 8 June to 10 July 2015). In total, we monitored 42 randomly determined locations (plots) along each transect, each for 48 or 72 h (depending on access to field site), with a total of 3 plots monitored simulta- neously on each transect... we positioned three infrared (IR) motion-sensor game cameras (Browning model BTC-5...)... We attached two of the cameras to the same tree, one 20 cm and the other 50 cm above the substrate, with both cameras pointing in the same direction; the third camera was placed 15 m away on a tree at 50 cm above the ground... We aimed all cameras parallel to the ground... In total, 18 cameras were deployed simultaneously, with 9 each on the agricultural and riparian transects... We considered images of the same species (or genus for Sciurus and Peromyscus) taken within 10 min of each other at the same plot as representing the same individual, unless this was obviously untrue"
