Title Wolf hormone data from heavily and lightly hunted wolf populations in northern Canada
Downloaded 57 times
Description This dataset includes measurements of cortisol, testosterone, and progesterone in wolf hair samples collected from hunters in the tundra-taiga and northern boreal forest of Canada. Additional samples were collected from wolves killed as part of a control program in the boreal forest (Little Smoky area). The file was exported from R statistical software. Variables are as follows: Individual is the individual wolf identifier. Sex is genetically-determined as M for Male or F for Female. Smoky wolves were not genetically sexed and their sex is considered Unknown "U". Population is 1=boreal forest, lightly hunted, 2=tundra-taiga, heavily hunted, 3=boreal forest Smoky, heavily hunted. Colour is coat colour classified as W for light and D for dark. Cpgmg is the concentration of cortisol in hair in pg/mg of hair. Tpgmg is the concentration of testosterone in hair in pg/mg. Ppgmg (Females only) is the concentration of progesterone in hair in pg/mg.
