Basis of coordinate: stated in text

Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 24.4
WMT: 26.9
CMT: 21.8
MAP: 2274.0
Habitat comments: "tropical moist and wet forest... Secondary forest had most of the original canopy removed, and had shorter, smaller trees and denser understory than primary forest"
climate data are from Denevan (1961), with MAT/CMT/WMT based on Somoto and MAP based on El Tuma
Methods
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals
Sites: 6
Sampling methods: quadrat, Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps
Sample size: 25
Years: 2002, 2003
Nets or traps: 150
Sampling comments: "Mammals were sampled using a 40-m diameter circular trapping array with 15 sample points... Twenty Sherman folding traps" and five "Tomahawk folding traps" were placed at each site
NOTE: additional counts are reported for large mammals but are certainly based on track counts because "circular unbaited tracking stations were established" in each site
