Title Individual networks of resource use from five animal populations
Downloaded 38 times
Description The dataset includes five interaction networks from three animal species. The data comprises qualitative information on individual patterns of resource use from each animal species. Individuals are depicted in rows and resources in columns. Pinaroloxias inornata (Passeriformes, Thraupidae) is a finch from the Coco Island, Costa Rica. This data was originally published by Werner and Sherry (1987). The Pinaroloxias network comprised 21 sampled individuals that used 7 different feeding strategies to acquire resources. Feeding strategies are described in the spreadsheet. The second and third sheets comprise information on feeding interaction from the marine snail Nucella emarginata (Neogastropoda, Muricidae) from two different localities in central California. These two data sets were originally published by West (1986). In site A, 20 individuals were sampled and consumed 7 resources. In site B, 31 individuals were sampled and consumed 3 resources. The fourth and fifth sheets describe the feeding interactions from two populations of the marine snail Vasula melones from Panama. These dataset was originally published by West (1988). In site A, 42 individuals were sampled and consumed 8 resources, whereas in site B, 21 individuals were sampled and consumed 14 resources. Resources are described within each spreadsheet. For further information regarding data collection from any of the study systems we refer readers to the original articles. References: Werner, T. K. and Sherry, T. W. 1987.
