Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
MAP: 3800.0
Habitat comments: "undisturbed primary rainforest, including mixed dipterocarp, tropical heath, and Casuarina-dominated formations, as well as adjacent mixed dipterocarp forest that was logged in the early- to mid-1990s. Logging consisted of the selective removal of 1015 trees above 60 cm diameter per hectare. Reduced impact logging techniques were practiced... the area receives ∼3800 mm of rainfall annually... Except for occasional reports of banteng poaching by hunters in the southern portion of the conservation area, hunting is extremely limited in the area"

Sampling comments: "We set up 26 camera trap stations the MBCA, 15 in primary forest and 11 in logged forest, and deployed two cameras per station from January to May 2010... We used Reconyx RM45 camera traps"
