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 "on the trail towards the summit of Chucantí, with many palm trees, oaks, fig trees, epiphytes, and bromeliads growing densely on tree branches and stems, and a few tall, giant trees. This site, to our knowledge, has not been used as agricultural land, and is the least disturbed of our sites, thus classified as primary forest"
climate data are for Chucantí Nature Reserve and are from Méndez-Carvajal et al. (2015, Tecnociencia)
Methods
Life forms: bats
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 20
Years: 2017
Days: 2
Seasons: wet or monsoon
Nets or traps: 2
Net or trap nights: 4
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"
15 mist net hours, implying that only two nets were actually used
