Hi everyone! New camera trapper over here! I have some questions specific to camera trapping medium-large mammals in the tropics, especially rural areas of Central America (Guatemala or similar location):
- Are predators/camera destroyers (e.g., monkeys) a particular concern for camera traps in lowland areas?
- Does wet vs. dry season impact results at all?
- Is there a general recommended duration, area, or/and number of camera traps for small-scale community-level surveys?
And if anyone has recommended articles to look into this further, feel free to send them my way!
