Geography
Country: Turkey

Coordinate: 36.9° N, 28.5° E
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: the reserve "covers 313.71 km2 and was declared as a wild goat population development reserve in 2005"
traps were sited at elevations ranging from 74 to 748 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Protection: wildlife protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: hunting, selective logging
Habitat comments: "KWDR is composed of mid-elevation mountain plateaus reaching up to 950 m, divided by steep and narrow rocky valleys. Our study targeted two habitat categories, cliffs and high flatland forests... Flatland forests occur at a higher plateau where the topography is more uniform and covered by Turkish pine and Turkish sweet gum... Main human activities in the area are summer tourism, logging by the forestry department, wild goat trophy hunting during rut season and some recorded poaching incidents. The area is protected against wildlife poaching by seven game wardens inside KWDR"

Sampling comments: "We used Scoutguard SG550 passive infrared camera traps in 201011 and Reconyx HC500 passive infrared models in 2012 surveys. Both surveys were conducted in winter and spring and no bait was used... The majority of the trap stations (N = 26) were not closer than 600 m walking distance to each other... Camera traps were active throughout 1269 camera trap days (ctds) in 20102011 winter and spring and 980 days in spring 2012"
there were 31 stations
