Sampling comments: 15 traps set out in three five-trap transects for a total of 330 trap days
"Trap sampling was initiated late June 2001 and continued through July 2002. Sampling was more frequent during the rainy season... In general, trapping occurred weekly from late June through mid August 2001, monthly between August 2001 and mid May 2002, then biweekly from mid May through late July 2002... Typical fruit-bait traps were hung in the forest understory, approximately 10 cm above the ground... Individual traps within areas were separated from each other by at least 50 m and by no more than 200 m. Traps were baited with mashed, fermented banana"
