Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 717

Net or trap nights: 4501
Camera type: digital
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 0.500
Sampling comments: "We carried out the camera trapping survey from May 2016 to July 2017 using 25 camera stations established along footpaths, and game trails and the camera trapping array covered elevations from 2, 892 to 4, 120 m. We placed on passive infra-red Reconyx HC500 Hyperfire camera... at each station... Cameras were at least 500m away from each other and were placed at the height of 45-50 cm above the ground. No bait/lure was used... we classified the captures as a notionally independent event only if they were taken at one-hour intervals"
