Geography comments: "about 40 km south of Abengourou"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Substrate: ground surface
MAP: 1329.0
Habitat comments: "moist semideciduous forest... subject to uncontrolled and intensive logging through 1988. It has now a widely broken upper canopy... Since 1990" a "rehabilitation programme" has been carried out
Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: line transect, mist nets
Sample size: 394
Years: 1996
Days: 100
Nets or traps: 17
Net or trap nights: 1700
Sampling comments: "Mist nets were used" in "February-March and September-October 1996. Seventeen mist-nets (6 m long, 19 mm mesh) were connected to a produce a 102 m-long mist-net line. Mist-netting took place between 15h00 and 18h00 on the first day and between 06h00 and 13h00 on the second day at each place" so there was effectively one day of work per site; "Nets were [then] moved to a new site 100 m further along the trail"
there were five transects each 1 km long, so there were 50 sites per treatment per visit and therefore 100 days of netting
the total number of "metre-net-hours" between the two treatments and two periods was 33, 099, which does not square with the above figures, suggesting either that some trails were visited more than once or that there was a math error
counts are of captures
