Habitat comments: "peat swamp forest... The NSPSF covers approximately 779 km2 and was actively logged for 30 years before being designated as a forest reserve in 1990... The forest reserves have different levels of forest degradation and the edges of the forests are generally heavily disturbed (e.g. cattle farming and oil palm farming)... The original pristine forest has been entirely logged over"
climate data are for North Selangor Peat Swamp Forest Reserve and are from Yule and Gomez (2009, Wetlands Ecol Manage)
MAP value is based on the statement "More than 60% of the swamp area receives over 2, 000 mm per year, while at least 25% receives 2, 500 mm or more a year": 10/35 x 500 + 2000
Methods
Life forms: carnivores, primates, rodents, ungulates
Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 4997
Years: 2013, 2014
Net or trap nights: 2565
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: "We established 45 sampling sites randomly across the NSPSF" (but Fig. 2 shows that the sites are non-randomly distributed across transects); "The furthest distance between sites was 40 km and the closest was 500 m" (figure suggests that spacing is highly uneven); "We set up one camera per site and left them for two months before relocating them... We conducted the camera trapping survey from March 2013 to October 2014... We used 20 units of camera traps (Bushnell Trophy Cam and Bushnell Trophy Cam HD)... cameras were active 24 h a day"
