This data is associated with the paper 'Hohnen, Rosemary, Karleah Berris, Pat Hodgens, Josh Mulvaney, Brenton Florence, Brett P. Murphy, Sarah M. Legge, Chris R. Dickman, and John CZ Woinarski. 2020 "Pre-eradication assessment of feral cat density and population size across Kangaroo Island, South Australia." Wildlife Research 47, no. 8 (2020): 669-676.'

This paper assesses feral cat density at nine sites (remote infra-red camera arrays) on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. This dataset only includes data for six of those nine camera arrays as these were the arrays collected by the first author. These arrays are referred to in the paper as Border1, Border 2, Border3, Forest 1, Forest 2, and Farmland 1. In the dataset, there are two spreadsheets of each array 1.) the locations that cameras were deployed (referred to as xx_detector_input), and 2.) a spreadsheet describing the night each individual cat was detected at each camera site (referred to as xx_detections_input). For each array, both the respective spreadsheets are in the format that can be input into the 'secr' package in the program R to calculate density. Further information on the methods used to collect this dataset can be found in the methods section of the respective manuscript.
