Sampling comments: "During May 2008 we installed 48 camera traps in 19 two-camera stations and 10 one-camera stations... At each station with two cameras, camera pairs were placed facing one another... stations were separated by 2 km... The study site covered a minimum polygon area of 70 km2 (Figure 1). The cameras used were Deercam and CamTracker models. Cameras were operating 24h a day... All fieldwork was carried out between May 12 and August 25 in 2008"; cameras used film
site area is a minimum convex polygon
