EMEND site (retention level 100%, replicate 1)
Basic information
Sample name: EMEND site (retention level 100%, replicate 1)
Sample aka: Ecosystem Management Emulating Natural Disturbance

Country: Canada
State: Alberta

Coordinate: 56° 46' 13" N, 118° 22' 28" W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "in northwest Alberta"
Climate and habitat
Habitat: boreal forest/taiga
Protection: unprotected
Substrate: ground surface
WMT: 15.0
CMT: -16.9
Habitat comments: "Climate data from nearby Eureka River (5629′00″ N, −11844′00″ W) collected from 1981 to 2010 indicated mean temperatures of −16.9C and 15.0C for January and July, respectively (Environment Canada 2017). Mean annual snowfall and rainfall were 128.8 cm and 307.4 mm, respectively... The area is representative of the boreal mixedwood plains... The EMEND site, which is embedded in an area managed for forestry, includes 1000 ha of forest... The stands were ~120180 yr old at the time of sampling as they experienced fires in 1895, 1877, and/or 1837"
the EMEND site is apparently embedded within a larger forest mosaic, so it is not a fragment per se
100% retention means that there was no logging
Life forms: carnivores, rodents, ungulates, other small mammals, birds
Sampling methods: no design, baited, automatic cameras
Sample size: 252
Years: 2014 - 2017
Seasons: winter, spring, autumn
Nets or traps: 2
Net or trap nights: 891
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: unclear
Trap spacing: 1.600
Sampling comments: "a minimum distance of 1.6‐km separated compartments characterized by the same treatment... We used 35 motion‐triggered wildlife cameras (25 Reconyx Hyperfire HC500 and 10 Reconyx Hyperfire PC900, Holmen, Wisconsin, USA) to capture use of compartments (treatments) by wildlife species from 31 October 2014 to 30 May 2017. During the sampling time period, 12 cameras were randomly moved within each compartment at least once every year so that each compartment had a total of 46 different camera locations... In the zone of detection, which was approximately 35 m from the camera lens, we applied 10 mL of a scented lure... The average number of camera trap nights for each compartment was 1319 49" but exact figures are given
there were 35 cameras and 18 sites, so the average is just about 2
cameras were deployed on 7 November 2014 and retrieved on 21 April 2017 and rotated between four exact sites, with interruptions
