Sampling comments: "Small rodent sampling was conducted every 2 months, from July 2011 to April 2012, including five sampling sessions. We set three 0.5-ha plots using a total of 130 Sherman traps during three consecutive nights for each sampling session; total trapping effort was 1950 trap/nights.
