Sampling comments: "The camera system used was the [digital] Reconyx RapidFire PC90... A bait mixture of peanut butter, rolled oats and pistachio essence" was used; "Cameras... were set at each of 59 widely spaced sites... Sites were separated from each other by a minimum distance of 162 m (350.4 +/- 24.3). At each site, two separate ‘stations’, each 39–154 m (79.2 +/- 2.4 m) apart, were established... cameras... were left in situ for a minimum period of 30 days" (effective spacing was 350.4/2 m, and counts are based on 30 days per camera and 110 cameras)
