Country: Brazil
State: Goiás

Coordinate: 15° 46' 30" S, 47° 14' 0" W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text as range

Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical savanna
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "covered by a well-preserved natural mosaic of Cerrado vegetation that includes open grasslands, shrubby grasslands with scattered trees, open woodland savannas, gallery forests, and wet meadows. The climate is tropical (Köppen Aw) with two well-defined seasons, one dry winter (May to September), and a rainy summer (October to April; Cardoso, Marcuzzo, & Barros, 2014). Access by the public is restricted"
Life forms: carnivores
Sampling methods: quadrat, automatic cameras
Sample size: 1607
Years: 2014, 2015
Net or trap nights: 12650
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 2.000
Sampling comments: "we distributed 50 capture stations consisting of one camera trap activated by heat and motion (Bushnell Trophy Cam HD)... From August 2014 to May 2015, we conducted a camera trap survey of medium- and large-sized mammals... using a systematic grid... The average minimum distance between traps was 2.0 km... Cameras were placed along animal trails or close to tracks, burrows, feces, and so on, 50cm above the ground... We used an interval of 24hr between pictures of the same species to guarantee independence between them... The sampling effort with camera traps was equivalent to 426, 250 trap days" (latter figure is clearly erroneous and may be a typo for 12, 650, which I assume)
