Coordinate: 32° 36' S, 116° 6' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "approximately 10 km north of Dwellingup in the northern jarrah forest of south-west Western Australia"
elevation is for the Huntly Bauxite Mine and is from Kew and Gilkes (2006, Geoderma)
Climate and habitat
Habitat: Mediterranean woodland
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: mining
MAP: 1240.0
Habitat comments: "Mediterranean, with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers... The jarrah forest prior to mining is dominated by two eucalypts, E. marginata and Corymbia calophylla... the minesite consists of a mosaic of unmined jarrah forest and restored mine pits of varying ages"
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals
Sites: 12
Sampling methods: line transect, cage traps, drift fences, Elliott traps
Sample size: 89
Years: 2006, 2007
Days: 16
Seasons: winter, spring, summer, autumn
Nets or traps: 60
Net or trap nights: 960
Sampling comments: "12 three-year old restored mine pits chosen to cover a broad range of habitat pile densities... We sampled terrestrial vertebrates using single trapping arrays at each site, which consisted of nine pit-traps... located every 3 m along 29 m aluminium fly-wire drift-fences, two paired funnel traps placed along drift fences, approximately 7 m from each end, four Elliott traps placed 5 m either side of the two end pit-traps and single Sheffield cage-traps placed at one end of the drift fence... Vertebrates on all arrays were sampled for four consecutive nights in spring (9th to 13th October 2006), summer (27th November to 1st December 2006), autumn (12th to 16th March 2007) and winter (7th to 11th May 2007). All reptiles and mammals captured were individually marked and released at their site of capture" (mammals are assumed to have been captured using Elliott and Sheffield traps)
