Title InjuryHealing_toDryad
Downloaded 66 times
Description Data are healing rates for injuries observed in wild baboons and metadata for each injury, including age, ordinal dominance rank, proportional dominance rank, whether the injury occurred in a wild or garbage-feeding group, season, and group size. Injury healing data are reflected in the days to heal or be censored and whether the record is censored. Censored records are injuries that failed to heal by the final observation. The injuries in this study were observed between 1982 and 2011. They were not clinical diagnoses; instead, observations were collected non-invasively by watching the animals at a distance of a few meters. Whenever a baboon displayed signs of injury (e.g., limping, bleeding from a wound), observers used an established protocol and data sheet to record the type of injury and whether it impaired the animal's locomotion. See manuscript for more details.

Title Female_MonthlyInjuryRisk_toDryad
Downloaded 39 times
Description Data are binomial incidences of injury for 18,256 female-months of observation. Data were collected from wild baboons in Amboseli National Park between 1982 and 2011. If a female was injured in a given month, the column 'injured?' records a 1, if no injury occurred, it lists a zero. Metadata are provided for each female-month, including the animal's identity, her age during the given year and month, her ordinal rank, her proportional rank, the season, whether her social group was fissioning, a log-transformed number of days she was present in the group, her reproductive state as cycling (C), pregnant (P), or lactating (L), and her group size. See manuscript for more information.

Title Periovulatory_DailyInjuryRisk_toDryad
Downloaded 37 times
Description Data are binomial incidences of injury for cycling female baboons on 179,001 female-days of observation. Data were collected from wild baboons in Amboseli National Park between 1982 and 2011. If a female was injured on a given day, the column 'injured?' lists a 1, if no injury occurred it lists a zero. Metadata are provided for each female-month, including the animal's identity, her age on that day, her ordinal rank, her proportional rank, the season, whether she was in the periovulatory phase, her group size, and the sex ratio in the group. See manuscript for more information.
