Sampling comments: "Seven camera trap stations were set in the study area, between April 2015 and March 2016. All stations were located along a human-made trail... Each station consisted of one or two digital camera trap (Bushnell Trophy Cam SD or Bushnell Trophy Cam HD) installed at a height of 60cm... Each station had a scent lure (Chanel N°5) placed 2-5m in front of the camera... only one individual per species was counted at each camera trap station within a 24h period (independent record); with the exception of gregarious species and felids. For gregarious species... the number of independent records was considered equal to the number of individuals observed in the same frame"
