Sample size: 378
Years: 2013
Days: 40
Seasons: spring, summer
Nets or traps: 20

Camera type: unclear
Cameras paired: yes
Trap spacing: 2.000
Sampling comments: "camera trapping was conducted during May-June, 2013 by dividing the area into a grid system of size 2 × 2 km" with 20 cameras and "a pair of cameras was put in each grid of 4 km2. In total 20 grids were sampled for a period of 40 days (20 days each for two sampling blocks) generating an overall effective sampling effort of 396 trap nights after subtracting the number of trap nights cameras were not functional... At each site, a pair of Cuddeback-attack™ digital cameras was set by affixing to trees at a height of approximately 30-45 cm to above the ground... one record of each species per half an hour per camera site was considered as an independent detection and subsequent records were eliminated"
