Geography
Country: Malawi

Coordinate: 10° 40' S, 33° 50' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: altitude 1565 to 1690 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical savanna
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 23.0
MAP: 1500.0
Habitat comments: miombo (woodland), montane grasslands, and evergreen forest patches
MAP "above 1500" in "the southeast" of the park, so presumably this is a reasonable median estimate
Methods
Life forms: frogs
Sites: 3
Sampling methods: drift fences, pitfall traps, hand capture
Sample size: 203
Years: 2010
Nets or traps: 12
Net or trap nights: 120
Sampling comments: "pitfall traps, drift fences, and random visual encounters" at three sites each sampled with three fences and four buckets 10 times (meaning 40 trap nights nights)
capture-mark-release (toe clipping) was used to avoid duplicate counts
