  1. The table also includes total effort per sector. Southern sector: municipalities of Nossa Senhora da Glória, Monte Alegre de Sergipe, and Porto da Folha, Sergipe state; northern sector: municipalities of Poço Redondo, Canindé de São Francisco, Sergipe state, and the municipality of Paulo Afonso, Bahia state. BA, Bahia state; SE, Sergipe state. Effort = number of traps multiplied by number of nights. aTransect removed due to stolen three traps during the third sampling day; bsampling only during the dry season due to filling of the river and edges in the rainy season; calmost all traps of the E II transect were stolen during the fieldwork in the dry season; dE II transect was placed in different but near areas, because it was stolen during the first sampling season.
