Brief descriptionHigh quality passive infrared wildlife cameras were used to acquire information on faunal biodiversity at the site. Two camera traps were deployed within the one hectare core plot between 11/04/2017 and 06/05/2017. The first camera (Reconyx UltraFire WR6) was attached to a tree at one metre high and the second camera (Reconyx Hyperfire HC600) was attached to a tree at 0.3 metres high. The cameras were first deployed for two weeks, then data were downloaded before redeploying the cameras at two other sites within the one hectare plot for a further one week period.
Individuals from 10 species were observed during the study time frame.
The Samford Peri-Urban SuperSite was established in 2010 in remnant fringe eucalypt forest, near urban development in the Samford Valley. The upper storey is dominated by Corymbia intermedia, Eucalyptus siderophloia and Lophostemon suaveolens. For additional site information, see https://www.tern.org.au/tern-observatory/tern-ecosystem-processes/samford-peri-urban-supersite/ .
Other images collected at the site include digital cover photography, phenocam time-lapse images taken from fixed overstorey cameras, panoramic landscape and photopoints.

Camera Trap - Deployment of two camera traps within the SEQP Samford one hectare core SuperSite plot.
- 2 x wildlife cameras (Reconyx WR6 UltraFire White Flash Camera and Reconyx HC600 HyperFire HD Covert IR
- 2 x camera security boxes

Sampling description - The two cameras were deployed within the SEQP Samford one hectare core SuperSite plot between 11/04/2017 and 06/05/2017. The first camera (Reconyx WR6 UltraFire White Flash Camera) was attached to a tree at one metre high and the second camera (Reconyx HC600 HyperFire HD Covert IR) was attached to a tree at 0.3 metres high. The cameras were first deployed for two weeks. Data were downloaded from SD cards before redeploying the cameras at two other sites within the one hectare plot for a one week period. When redeployed each camera was mounted at the alternative height (either one or 0.3 metres) to that from the first two week recording period.
The Samford Peri-Urban SuperSite is managed by the Queensland University of Technology.
Data time period: 2017-04-11 to 2017-05-06
