Methods
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals
Sites: 2
Site length: 120.000
Site width: 60.000
Sampling methods: quadrat, baited, Sherman traps
Sample size: 878
Years: 2007 - 2011

Sampling comments: two "permanent square grids (60 x 60 m)... situated more than 200 m apart... Each grid consisted of seven parallel lines, 10 m apart, with trapping stations also 10 m apart (i.e. a total of 49 trapping stations per grid). Trapping was conducted with Sherman LFA live traps... baited with peanut butter"; there were 27, 636 trap nights total across two treatments, so half are assumed to apply to this one
