Context. The use of camera traps in ecological research has grown exponentially over the past decade, but questions remain about the effect of camera-trap settings on ecological inference. The delay-period setting controls the amount of time that a camera trap is idle between motion-activated triggers. Longer delay periods may potentially extend battery life, reduce data-storage requirements, and shorten data-analysis time. However, they might result in lost data (i.e. missed wildlife detections), which could bias ecological inference and compromise research objectives.
