Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
MAT: 27.0
MAP: 2890.0
Habitat comments: "mostly lowland dipterocarp rainforest and upper montane forest, including patches of montane heath or 'Kerangas' forest... Being logged in the past and located in proximity to some human settlements and plantations, the forest habitats surrounding the fringes of the ICCA are generally heavily disturbed. However, forests inside the canyon of the ICCA are still relatively pristine"
climate data are for the Kalabakan Forest Reserve and are from Romell et al. (2009, Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
Life forms: carnivores, primates, rodents, ungulates, other large mammals
Site area: 50030.000
Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 564
Years: 2012
Nets or traps: 80
Net or trap nights: 1436
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Sampling comments: "We deployed eighty automatic remote motion-triggered digital camera traps of three commercial brands (Bushnell, Trophy Cam TM [30 units], Reconyx, RM45 [30 units], and Cuddeback, Capture [20 units]) in 13 circular plots, each of which was prescribed by a 3.5 km radius. Since areas outside of the ICCA covered a larger area, 10 plots (P3P11 & P13) were located in the surrounding areas outside of the ICCA, while three plots (P1, P2 & P12) were located inside the core area of the ICCA... Distances between nearest plots ranged from 0 to 5 km... Five camera stations were established in each of plots P3P11 and P13 (total: 50 camera stations), and 10 camera stations each were established in plots P1, P2 and P12 (total: 30 camera stations)... one camera trap was placed at each camera station... cameras were active 24 hours per day"
