Title Color data for male African starling species
Downloaded 25 times
Description Species average color variables of measurements from male African starlings. Variables represent the first two Principal Components calculated from the relative quantum catches of the four cones involved in color vision (PC1 and PC2), and brightness (log-transformed average reflectance) for 10 body patches.
