Mammal Use of Oil Palm Plantations in S. Mexico Project

Our goal is to examine how oil palm plantations in the state of Tabasco, Mexico, influence the species diversity and activity patterns of mammals in the region. In December of 2017 we set up a total of 24 trail cameras, half in patches of oil palm and half in patches of secondary forest. We plan to rotate the camera locations every month for six months, to give us an overview of the species of mammals present in the study area and their habitat preferences.

Caveats: We are not recording detection distances.
