Geography
Country: Australia
State: New South Wales

Coordinate: 32° 0' S, 148° 55' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "some 40 km north-east of Dubbo on the central western slopes"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging, invasive animals
WMT: 24.6
CMT: 9.9
MAP: 588.0
Habitat comments: the state forest "was dedicated in 1917 and continued to be used as a source of timber... The forest is dry sclerophyll and dominated in different areas by black cypress pine (Callitris endlicheri), ironbarks (Eucalyptus crebra, E. nubila and E. beyeriana) and red gums (E. dwyeri and E. blakelyi)"
winter min/max 2.6/17.3, summer min/max 16.2/33
Methods
Life forms: carnivores, ungulates, other large mammals, other small mammals, birds
Site area: 2513.000
Sampling methods: quadrat, automatic cameras
Sample size: 213
Nets or traps: 24
Net or trap nights: 141
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: the study was "in autumn 2009" with "two sample periods over 2 weeks of six nights each... Forty-eight camera traps at eight grid points were used in Study 1 during March (pre-baiting)... Six cameras were placed within a 1-km radius of each grid point, three on vehicular tracks (more than 500 m apart) and three off tracks (1km apart)... Moultrie I60 digital game cameras... with a passive sensor and infrared flash... were used"
sampling area in ha is 8 points x pi x 100 because the radius is 1 km
there were 564 trap nights over four treatments, so I assume that 141 pertain to this one
