One end of the trap is covered by plastic to shelter trapped animals and traps are baited with a mixture of rolled oats and peanut butter. Trapping occurs every three months, over a two week period. In the first week, 50 traps in the eastern half of the Park are open for four nights and checked each morning. In the second week; 50 traps in the western half of the Park are open for four nights and checked each morning. Any bandicoots or possums trapped are weighed, sexed, pes length measured (bandicoots only) and marked with a PIT tag (Trovan ID 100). Females are searched for pouch young or indications of recent lactation. Numbers of bush rats trapped are also recorded.&rft.creator=Dexter, Nicholas &rft.date=2014&rft.edition=1.0.0&rft.relation=10.1111/j.1442-9993.2010.02213.x&rft.relation=http://search.informit.com.au/fullText;dn=804472254630155;res=IELHSS&rft.coverage=Monitoring is undertaken across Booderee National Park in a diversity of habitats, including heath, woodland and sclerophyll forest.

Brief description

A fox control program has been in place in Booderee National Park since 1999 with baiting occurring twice a year. From 2003 onwards baiting has been intensified, with baiting occurring once a month. Since 2003 monitoring has been undertaken to track trends in distribution and abundance of small-medium sized mammal species, in response to fox control. The dataset contains data on mammal species and numbers trapped in Booderee National Park, as well as a record of sex, weight, pes length, and presence of pouch young.

Data Creation
Sampling design - Mammal trapping commenced in August 2003 at the same time that intensive fox control began. One hundred traps are placed at 500m intervals along trails throughout the Park, with 50 trap sites in the eastern half of the Park and 50 trap sites in the western half of the Park. This forms two continuous transects of 24.5 km in each half of the Park.
Mammal trapping - Traps are 20 x 20 x 50 cm wire cage traps, with every fifth trap a 30 x 30 x 60 cm cage trap. One end of the trap is covered by plastic to shelter trapped animals and traps are baited with a mixture of rolled oats and peanut butter. Trapping occurs every three months, over a two week period. In the first week, 50 traps in the eastern half of the Park are open for four nights and checked each morning. In the second week; 50 traps in the western half of the Park are open for four nights and checked each morning. Any bandicoots or possums trapped are weighed, sexed, pes length measured (bandicoots only) and marked with a PIT tag (Trovan ID 100). Females are searched for pouch young or indications of recent lactation. Numbers of bush rats trapped are also recorded.

Purpose
Booderee National Park (approx. 6500 ha) is located on the south coast of New South Wales, south-eastern Australia. Predation by the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) has been identified as a key threatening process for small to medium-sized native mammals in Australia. A fox control program has been in place in Booderee National Park since 1999 with baiting occurring twice a year. From 2003 onwards baiting has been intensified, with baiting occurring once a month. Since 2003 monitoring has been undertaken to track trends in distribution and abundance of small-medium sized mammal species, in response to fox control.
