Numbers in brackets reflect the units of sampling effort for the active techniques applied. The wet season lasts from December until June and the dry season from July until November with some little variations. The total number of M-S cannot be determined (and it is therefore noted NA=Not Applicable) because at some sites spiders were not photographed and could not be compared with other sites (those sites are the ones not used for the following analyses).
