Description Description: Phenotypic measurement and covariates used for animal model and for estimation of the genetic covariance of trait with fitness. The population of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) is located at Ram Moutnain, Alberta, Canada(52°8’N, 115°8’W, elevation 1082 to 2173 m). Measurements where taken between 1973 and 2013. Animals aged 13 and older where grouped for analysis due to small sample size. Animals translocated from the Cadomin population where excluded. NA is used for missing values Columns: ID: unique identifier for each animal. yr: year of measurement. age: age at measurement. sex: sex of animal(1=male, 0=female). cohort: year of birth. hlM: horn length of males aged 2 to 5 in cm adjusted to 15 September. hlF: horn length of females aged 2 to 5 in cm adjusted to 15 September. Avhb114M: horn base of males aged 2 to 5 in cm adjusted to 15 September. Avhb114F: horn base of females in cm adjusted to 15 September. relLongM: relative longevity of males. Longevity divided by the mean longevity of males of the same cohort. relLongF: relative longevity of females. Longevity divided by the mean longevity of females of the same cohort.
