Sampling comments: surveying was "from September 2004 through October 2005. We divided the entire reserve into 1-km2 blocks... only 118 (of the original 131) forest blocks below tree-line could be included in this analysis. We placed one camera unit in each block for 1 month, and all sampling sites were separated from each other by >300 m. We used two models of passive infrared-triggered camera units: Ten DeerCamTM units... and 20 units locally manufactured... ISO 400 negative films were used... We set all the units to work 24 hours/day"
