Assessment of the mammalian and avian community in the Laramie Range, Wyoming, with camera traps
The effects of habitat on the composition of the avian and mammalian community in the intermountain west are largely unknown. To evaluate the effectiveness of remotely activated cameras for describing these communities we deployed camera traps in two grids in the Laramie Range, Wyoming. Twenty three cameras were set for 45 days, yielding 415 videos with 275 independent animal detections.
