Country: United States
State: Alaska

Coordinate: 63.82° N, -146.65° W
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: "in Donnelly Training Area... of U.S. Army Fort Wainwright... on the northern foothills of the Alaska Range, approximately 50 km southwest of Delta Junction"
elevation 800 to 1900 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: montane grassland
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "At both locations we predominately sampled in alpine habitats"
Life forms: carnivores, rodents, ungulates, other small mammals
Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 1092
Years: 2013, 2014
Seasons: winter, spring, summer, autumn
Nets or traps: 27
Net or trap nights: 7680
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 0.500
Sampling comments: "We installed cameras during July and August 2013... cameras operated until October 2014... Camera locations were determined through a spatially balanced design generated via the Reversed Randomized Quadrant-Recursive Raster (RRQRR) algorithm... Sampling sites were > 500 meters apart except for two pairs of cameras, where one camera per pair was censored... We programmed camera traps to trigger by movement and to capture a time-lapse image every hour for the first 12-months of sampling. We increased the rate of time-lapse images to every 30 minutes for the last 3-months of sampling after noting the available space on the memory cards... our 54 cameras operated for 19, 199 camera trap days and captured ~825, 000 photos"
I presume there were 27 cameras per field area (9599.5 trap days each); the triggering period was 12/15 months, so there were 7679.6 triggered trap days and 1919.9 time-lapse trap days per field area"
