Geography comments: "Fazenda Sta Emília and adjacent areas... in the upper Rio Negro Basin of the southeastern part of the floodplain, Aquidauana region... The core area of the study covered approximately 4 x 5 km"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 26.0
MAP: 1250.0
Habitat comments: "Semideciduous forest islands with Acurí Palms (Schealea phalerata) dominating the understorey... found on higher elevations meandering through the open landscape (cordilheiras) and... not subject to flooding"; the site "was purchased by UNIDERP three years before this study, and in connection with this most of the cattle was removed from the part of the reserve covered by the study. Due to the lack of cattle, in most open areas the grass was tall"
"highly seasonal, with warm, wet summers, cold, dry winters, and an annual flooding of the open areas following the rainy season"
climate data are for Aquidauana and are from Silveira et al. (2012, Scientia Horticulturae)
Methods
Life forms: carnivores, rodents, ungulates, other large mammals
Sampling methods: no design, baited, automatic cameras
Sample size: 47
Years: 2001
Nets or traps: 6
Net or trap nights: 141
Camera type: analog
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: fieldwork was during "May–July 2001" and "Six Trailmaster infrared trailmonitors (five passive TM550s and one active TM1550) with TM35-1 camera kits... were used... The active system works with an infrared beam between a transmitter and a receiver, and is triggered when the beam is broken. The passive system consists only of a transmitter that emits a wedge-shaped infrared field, and is triggered by warm-blooded animals moving through the wedge... Bait was often used; mostly sardines in oil that proved to be quite attractive to carnivores"
