New paper on using camera traps to assess mammal and bird assemblages
Check out our new paper on “Using Camera Traps to Assess Mammal and Bird Assemblages in a Midwestern Forest“. The paper includes two undergraduate interns (David and Laura), and was led by postdoc Carl Cloyed. You can find a pdf of this paper on our PUBLICATIONS page.
We designed a camera-trap setup that enabled us to capture images of both large and small animals and used our camera-trap design to investigate the community composition of mammals and birds and to estimate the biomass of mammals along two transects in a conservation reserve in Missouri.
