Each sampling location is marked by a small dot. The frequency of each species is represented by the size of a shape representing land-use type: circle – old growth forest; square – secondary forest; triangle – shade plantation; losange – other agricultural land-use. The maps on top represent the total number of times the species was present (in 3×5 point counts), while the bottom ones represent the number of times in which the species was present at less than 20m from the point).
