Country: Tanzania

Coordinate: 3° 7' S, 37° 35' E

Methods
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals
Sampling methods: line transect, pitfall traps, Sherman traps
Sample size: 128
Days: 3
Nets or traps: 121
Net or trap nights: 300
Sampling comments: "100 Sherman traps were placed... in 10 lines, each with 10 trapping stations, 10 m apart for 2 consecutive nights... The smaller rodents and shrews were captured using pitfall traps placed along the trap lines to each trapping site in the mountain. The pitfall traps (n=21) were made of 10-l plastic buckets (250 mm high=220 mm rim) and were arranged 5 m apart, in a pitfall line" (reported trap night count is not consistent with the text)
