Comparison of two methods for monitoring population indices of small mammals on seasonal islands

During summer monsoon rains in Bangladesh, many small villages are surrounded by flood waters and become seasonal islands. As part of a larger study, snap-traps and tracking tiles were compared as means of monitoring small mammal relative abundance in the villages. Traps and tiles were set for two successive nights each week over a 20 week period.
