Basic information
Sample name: Purus Project

Country: Brazil
State: Acre

Coordinate: -9.04° S, -69.47° W
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: "in an area of REDD+ known as the Purus Project, located in a forest area of 34, 702 ha in the municipality of Manoel Urbano"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "The project area is divided into two plots (Seringal Itatinga and Seringal Porto Central) located along the Purus River... with only 1.4% of the forest area being converted into an open area or pasture with more than 98% forest... Two main vegetable typologies were identified in the area: Open Forest with Palm of Alluvial Influence, which is smaller and concentrated in areas near the river and Open Forest with Bamboo and Palms covers the largest area of the Purus Project area"
Life forms: carnivores, primates, rodents, ungulates, other large mammals, other small mammals
Sampling methods: line transect, automatic cameras
Sample size: 182
Years: 2013, 2014
Days: 270
Nets or traps: 10
Net or trap nights: 1859
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 1.000
Sampling comments: "The community... was inventoried with the use of 10 BUSHNELL TROPHY CAM HD traps... tree-tied approximately 30 to 40 cm above the ground... . The sampling stations were installed at regular distances of 1 km from each other, in two lines of 4.5 to 5 km... No baits were used... The traps operated continuously (24 hours a day) for 120 days in the first sampling campaign (June 2013 to September 2013) and 150 days during the second campaign (December 2013 to May 2014)... Each record was considered independent if: (1) the interval between consecutive photos of the same species is greater than 1 h; (2) photographs of different individuals of the same species when differentiation was possible"
