Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 25.5
MAP: 1941.0
Habitat comments: "a large area of submontane forest surrounded by livestock pastures although still in contact with original vegetation. The reserve has premontane wet forests and tropical moist forests" and specifically "a heavily disturbed area" of secondary forest that was cleared of most vegetation, except for low grasses and some dispersed trees, and designated as early secondary succession"
climate data are for Chucantí Nature Reserve and are from Méndez-Carvajal et al. (2015, Tecnociencia)
Life forms: bats
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 46
Years: 2017
Days: 1

Sampling comments: sampling was in the rainy season in June 2017
"Bats were captured using three to four 6-m ground level mistnets (36-mm mesh, 4 shelves, Avinet, Portland, ME, USA)... The nets were usually open from sunset to around 11 pm and examined every 10 min"
5.1 mist net hours, implying that only one net was actually used
