An evaluation of camera traps for inventorying large- and medium-sized terrestrial rainforest mammals

Mammal inventories in tropical forests are often difficult to carry out, and many elusive species are missed or only reported from interviews with local people. Camera traps offer a new tool for conducting inventories of large- and mediumsized terrestrial mammals. We evaluated the efficiency of camera traps based on data from two surveys carried out at a single site during 2 consecutive years. The survey efforts were 1440 and 2340 camera days, and 75 and 86% of the 28 largeand medium-sized terrestrial mammal species known to occur at the site were recorded.
