Coordinate: -34.32° S, 118.19° E
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
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
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: 654
Years: 1988 - 1990
Days: 196
Nets or traps: 18
Net or trap nights: 2784
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 were three lines at each of two sites during the post-drought months, with nine buckets at Site A and nine buckets at Site B
7 x 28 = 196 nights and 2784 pit-trap nights
