Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: "The study was conducted in Mwanihana forest"
elevation 290 to 2250 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
WMT: 22.6
CMT: 17.2
MAP: 1500.0
Habitat comments: "The forest habitat broadly ranges east-west from lowland, deciduous forest to montane, evergreen forest... The lower elevation habitats, which include deciduous, semi-deciduous and riverine evergreen forest, have been degraded historically and have large portions of secondary, regenerating vegetation... Anthropogenic disturbance in the form of firewood collection occurred at the lower elevations"
Life forms: carnivores, primates, rodents, ungulates, other large mammals, other small mammals
Site area: 12000.000
Sampling methods: quadrat, automatic cameras
Sample size: 1257
Years: 2009
Days: 133
Nets or traps: 20
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: "Camera trapping was conducted from July to November 2009... We used [Reconyx RM45] digital cameras... we designed a regular grid of 60 camera trap locations at a density of one camera per 2 km2, and placed at random across the forest... we sampled the 60 points by deploying three consecutive arrays of 20 camera traps (south, central and northern Mwanihana, respectively). Therefore, the data collection lasted 133 days"
