Geography
Country: Pakistan

Coordinate: 36° 52' N, 75° 2' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text as range

MAT: 3.3
MAP: 69.0
Habitat comments: The forests along KKH are mainly composed of Salix spp, Myricaria elegans, Populus afghanica which are commonly distributed on the bottom of valley, and grass (mainly Ephedra intermedia) spread over the slopes, and bushes (Juniperus L., Rosa L.) sparsely grow both on the bottoms and on slopes of mountains
two cameras were in "forest", five in "bush", and three in "grass"
climate data are for Tashkurgan, at a similar altitude, and are from Xu et al. (2013, Quaternary Science Reviews)
