Methods
Life forms: rodents
Sites: 3
Site area: 0.480

Sample size: 64
Years: 2008
Days: 9
Nets or traps: 150

Sampling comments: "Sherman traps "baited with a mixture of sardine in oil and oatmeal" and set in three areas "at least 500 m apart... At each site, 50 traps were set in a square grid of 40m×40m. Each grid nodule... included two traps: one located on the ground, near the tree roots, and another in a tree branch, 1–2 m above ground"; there were three three-day "capture campaigns"
