Country: Mexico
State: Veracruz

Coordinate: 18° 25' N, 95° 0' W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: altitude sea level to 1000 m
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: fragment
Protection: biosphere reserve
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 27.0

Habitat comments: forest fragment areas "ranged from 1 to > 2000 ha" and my best guess based on Fig. 4 is that a majority are under 100 ha
Life forms: bats
Sites: 45
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 1407
Years: 1990 - 1992
Days: 90
Nets or traps: 15
Net or trap nights: 1350
Sampling comments: captures were in "65 islands of vegetation" of which "45 were rain forest"
15 12 m x 3 m mist nets per site set in a grid pattern and sampled for two nights (45 x 15 x 2 = 1350 net nights); there were 8760 net hours across all 65 islands but there is no breakdown
