Title Data for social transmission analysis
Downloaded 8 times
Description Description of Dryad Data File The .RData file contains the following objects 1) “all.individuals” gives the identity (unique PIT tag number) of all detected individuals and which species they belong to 2) “patch.times” gives the time of detection of individuals at the ephemeral food patches (discovery feeders) along with the unit number and replica number of that detection 3) “group_by_individual” gives the matrix denoting which individuals were detected in which flocks at the selective feeding stations. The columns give the individuals, the rows give the number of the group 4) “groups_info” gives information on each detected group (rows corresponding to group_by_individual). This includes the start and stop times, as well as the unit it was detected at. The “allows.odds” column denotes whether or not this unit was programmed to only allow access to birds with odd numbered pit tags during the experiment (note: FALSE during the experiment means that this feeder only allowed birds with even numbered PIT tags). The “experiment.phase” denotes the phrase of the experiment (either “pre” manipulation or “during” the manipulation).
