One of the major challenges of conservation of biological communities in areas facing degradation is the unavailability of baseline studies during the pristine phase (Drumbrell et al. 2008; Trisurat et al. 2010). Monitoring is the process of determining state of a system and measuring changes in that system over time (Yoccoz et al. 2001).
