Disturbance: grazing
WMT: 21.1

Habitat comments: "extensively cleared for dairy farming in the mid to late 1800s... Remnant ribbons of native Eastern Riverine Forest still occur... The low-cattle-impact sites (Category 1) were recognised as follows: impact restricted to tracks, tracks used only intermittently, soils generally undisturbed by hard hooves. The high-cattle-impact sites (Category 4) were defined as follows: few vegetated areas undisturbed, tracks heavily used, soils highly disturbed or compacted"

Sampling comments: "Eight independent streambank study sites (each 100 m in length) were used for the study... Four sites had low levels of cattle disturbance (Sites 5, 7, 14 and 16), while the other four sites had high levels (Sites 2, 4, 10 and 11)... the distance between sites was at least 350400 m... Two motion-sensing infrared-triggered Trapacameras... 35-mm cameras... were used" continuously at each site "between July 2006 and August 2007"; "camera-trap stations were located ~30 m and 70 m along a well-worn track"
trapping effort estimated as 365 days x 8 traps
