Title Cougar isotopic signature and covariates
Downloaded 11 times
Description Data describes GPS-collared cougars from the Colorado Front Range, monitored from 2007-2013. Data is in csv format, created with Microsoft Excel. Cougars were subadults (independent offspring < 24 months) or adults (>24 months with established home range). We describe isotopic signature of cougar hair (in delta-13C and delta-15N), sex, age at capture, and housing density. Housing density is the median density of housing units (in units/km2) over all of an individuals night-time GPS positions, and is a measure of the intensity of human influence in an individual's home range. We did not estimate housing density for individuals with fewer than 50 GPS locations, and we use asterisks to represent these individuals.

Title Cougar Survival Data
Downloaded 9 times
Description Survival data for cougars monitored the Colorado Front Range from 2007-2013. Data is in CSV format, and is intended for Kaplan-Meier survival analysis. Entry and exit dates are given in months and describe either the date the cougar was first captured, or the date an individual reached adulthood (24 months). "TotalMonths" is the amount of time each cougar was monitored. "Event" describes whether monitoring ended due to censorship (0) or death (1). Censorship included lost communication with GPS collar or cessation of the study. We include covariates that may be linked to survival, including sex, isotopic signature (in delta-13C or delta15N), housing density (see manuscript for details), and percent of diet from native herbivores. We also include mortality cause where available (see manuscript for category descriptions). Complete data was not available for all cougars in the study.

Title Cougar prey isotopic signatures
Downloaded 8 times
Description Isotopic signatures of potential prey species of cougars in the Colorado Front Range, in CSV format. Prey hair were collected between 2007 and 2013 throughout the study area, and analyzed for isotopic signature, in delta-13C and delta-15N (see manuscript for details).
