Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: fragment
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: agriculture
Habitat comments: "The study area mostly consists of discontinuous primary vegetation, with a matrix interspersed with extensive eucalyptus and papaya plantations, cabruca (cacao trees planted in the shade of thinned native forest), seringal (rubber tree culture), and smaller amounts of coffee plantations and cattle pastures that are not part of the RPPN Recanto das Antas... The vegetation is classified as lowland Ombrophilous Dense Forest... Camera stations were placed in different habitats - within and along edges of forest fragments, eucalyptus plantations, marshes and floodplains"

Sampling comments: "We conducted camera-trapping surveys from January to November 2015... We set camera traps at stations 0.5-2 km apart. To place the camera traps (camera stations) at regular intervals, we created grids of 500 x 500 m... We placed the camera traps in one monitoring block at a time, and rotated the camera traps among blocks every two months, meaning each block was monitored just once... We considered a temporally independent event when: (a) more than one photograph of the same species was obtained at the same station after a period of 1 hour; (b) consecutive photographs from the same station recorded different species or clearly distinguishable individuals; (c) photographs from the same station were not consecutive; and (d) when a group of individuals of the same species was recorded, each individual was considered a single record"
