Sampling comments: "We set 19 infrared [Scoutguard SG550] digital cameras... in the plot at random sites stratified across habitat types... We set all cameras to work 24 h a day and checked memory cards and batteries every month... Our analyses focus on 19 camera sites with two years of continuous data from June 1, 2009 until May 31, 2011 (730 total days)... We excluded seven arboreal species (detected 48 times) and three species (11 times) whose habitats exist in other parts of the Reserve"
