Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "mallee scrub"
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals, lizards, snakes, frogs
Sampling methods: drift fences, pitfall traps
Sample size: 55
Years: 1986 - 1988
Days: 126
Nets or traps: 5
Net or trap nights: 543
Sampling comments: "A pit-trap survey was conducted in mallee scrub from December 1986 to September 1990... Pits were opened for 8 days and 7 nights at the beginning of each month. The first eighteen months were conducted under drought conditions" and there were 46 months, so the post-drought data apply to 28 months
"Pit-traps consisted of plastic buckets 300mm in dia. by 400mm deep... A 400mm high flywire fence was run" and there was one line at each of two sites during the first 18 months, with two buckets at Site A and three buckets at Site B
7 x 18 = 126 nights and 543 pit-trap nights
