Sampling comments: "The study was carried out in four field phases: May, July, September and November 2009, with camera-traps monitored for 6 complete days in each field phase. Fourteen camera-traps were installed: seven in shelter sites and seven along natural trails inside the forest... The camera-traps were installed... with no bait... Camera-traps at adjacent natural trail stations were placed at least 200 m apart and maximum of 1, 850 m between paired stations (mean = 767; SD = 715 m), with a distance of at least 100 m between those at adjacent shelter stations (with a maximum of 1500 m; mean = 740; SD = 555 m)... . We estimate that our sampling covered about 5, 200 ha of the park... The total effort expended in this study was 336" over the two sets of cameras
