Country: China
State: Hunan

Coordinate: 28° 25' N, 114° 7' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "in Liuyong County, northeast Hunan along the border of Jiangxi Province... A small reserve of 5, 200 ha in the Lianyun Mountains... inventory work was focused between 700 m and 1, 450 m, with the majority of netting effort around 1, 300 m near Yuquan Lake"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
Habitat comments: "heavily developed for tourism and little if any primary forest remains... Stands of bamboo approximately 10 m tall cover the lower elevations of the reserve, along with substantial pine and deciduous broadleaf forest 15 m tall... The reserve was heavily impacted by selective bamboo harvesting and tourism"
Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 150
Net or trap nights: 101
Sampling comments: "Birds were captured in mist nets (20 - 36 mm mesh, 6 - 12 m long). A variable number of nets were used, up to 34 at any one time... They were left open all day and night (daylight hours were approximately 06:15 - 19:15)... Netting effort... was 2, 435 net-hours... short nets counted proportionally compared with 12 m nets" (approximate number of net days is 2435/24 = 101)
