Summary With nearly one quarter of mammalian species threatened, an accurate description of their distribution and conservation status is needed [1]. For rare, shy or cryptic species, existing monitoring methods are often prohibitively expensive or unreliable. The problem is particularly acute in tropical forests, where a disproportionate number of species are listed by IUCN as ‘data deficient' [2], due to the difficulty of monitoring with conventional approaches. This presents serious… Expand
