Protection: national/state park
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: grazing
MAT: 9.3
MAP: 589.0
Habitat comments: "The landscape developed at the end of the Weichselian Glaciation and is characterized by a mosaic of forests, freshwater bodies, arable land and grassland"
"The mean annual temperature measures about 9.3 °C and the average annual perception is 589 mm (distributed all over the year, with most rainfall during summer)"
"Grazing of livestock represents a significant management tool"
"Grazing systems can be distinguished between permanent and rotational grazing systems"
Life forms: carnivores, ungulates
Sampling methods: line transect, automatic cameras
Sample size: 605
Years: 2017
Days: 65
Nets or traps: 20
Net or trap nights: 770
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 0.050
Sampling comments: "We deployed commercially available digital camera traps (Stealth Cam® G45NG PRO HD) with infrared sensor and infrared flash ... 20 of these camera traps were attached to wooden vegetation at about 1 m height"
"Camera traps were established in form of transects with uniform spacing"
"The distances between camera traps ... were identical"
"During period of data collection, camera traps operated 24 h per day, and took bursts of five photos with a delay of 30 s between trigger activations"
"Data was collected on a weekly basis"

Within the study area, comparisons were made between the data collected when livestock was present versus when livestock was absent. The register below corresponds to the data collected when livestock was absent.
