C.O.R. Everard, Elisha S. Tikasingh


A study on small mammals in a small area of the Turure Forest between December 1966 and March 1969. Mammal trapping was undertaken with the exclusive use of small and medium-sized Havahart live capture traps for 2 to 4 nights per week using coconuts, bananas and pawpaw as bait. During the three-year study period parallel trap lines, grid traps, or a random distribution were employed, with trapping being conducted both on the ground and in trees.
