Sampling comments: "The total coverage of the TWH [sampled] patches was 593.7 km2... Wildlife-Two camera traps... are a 1 piece system with a passive infrared sensor... cameras were used... from Sept. 2000 to Dec. 2003... 373 camera sites were set up... Film collection and battery replacement was conducted every 2-4 wk... 1, 442, 581... camera working hours were completed" (cameras were in continuous operation, so this is equivalent to 60108 camera trap days)
