Optimising camera trap deployment design across multiple sites for species inventory surveys

Smith, J.; Legge, Sarah; James, Alex; Tuft, Katherine


Camera traps are being increasingly used in biological surveys. One of the most common uses of camera trap data is the generation of species inventories and estimations of species richness. Many authors have advocated for increased camera trap-nights (long deployment times or more cameras in an array) to detect rare or wide-ranging species. However, in practice, the number of traps and the duration of surveys are constrained; a survey leader must make decisions about allocating the available...[Show more]
