Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: plantation
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 24.4
WMT: 26.9
CMT: 21.8
MAP: 2274.0
Habitat comments: "tropical moist and wet forest... Allspice agroforestry systems consisted of allspice that had been planted in pasture with other commercially valuable species such as coffee, cacao, and citrus between 3 to 5 years before the commencement of the study. Allspice had shorter, smaller trees than secondary forest, but similar understory structure"
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: 7
Sampling methods: quadrat, Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps
Sample size: 26
Years: 2002, 2003
Nets or traps: 175
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
