Mammal Survey

image_pdfimage_print

EnviroScience has completed numerous biological inventories. In these large biological surveys, small mammal trapping and collection is required. EnviroScience has the equipment and several customized methods of mammal capture for the appropriate purpose and study site. EnviroScience biologists are experienced in small mammal trapping, including:

  • Live-trapping
  • Pitfall-trapping
  • Visual and track ID
  • Trail camera samplingOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Live-capture trapping (accomplished by both live and pitfall trapping) is the most commonly used sampling technique and proper method for studies that includes species of concern. Live-capture trapping also provides the most dependable and informative data about population numbers and habitat preferences. Trail cameras are also a good low impact passive sampling technique to document larger mammals on a project area. EnviroScience biologists have used bait stations with trail cameras set for specific large mammal groups such as predators, scavengers and herbivores. Coupled with small mammal live trapping, visual, and track ID, these techniques give clients an understanding of the types of mammals, habitat preferences and population dynamic on a specific project site.
