Sampling comments: "We used 4 stands (as replicates or blocks) with 4 randomly assigned treatments plots (10 ha each) within each stand... We established a 7 x 7-trapping grid (20 m between traps; 49 trap stations) at the center of each treatment plot... We used 42 Sherman 23-cm live traps... and 7 Longworth traps... or 18-cm non-folding Sherman traps per treatment plot... We baited traps with crimped oats... We completed 6 trapping sessions of 3
consecutive nights on each treatment plot from May to August in 2013, 2014, and 201. We trapped all treatments of a replicate simultaneously. The final trapping session in 2015 was only 2 consecutive nights... We uniquely marked all captured animals with a numbered ear tag" and there were "14, 112 trap nights per year (3, 528 per replicate per year)"
