Table 1. Trapping effort during census of squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) populations in southeast Australia. Trapping effort is the number of nights of trapping multiplied by the number of traps open, accounting for instances when a proportion of traps (in some cases, all traps) were closed on a given night. The first survival period includes trapping sessions between August 2005 and December 2006; the second includes trapping sessions between January 2007 and February 2008.
