Geography comments: two sites "near the junction of Bluff Knoll and Chester Pass Roads at the northern boundary of the park"
coordinate based on the intersection of these two roads
Climate and habitat
Habitat: Mediterranean woodland
Protection: national/state park
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
