Description 1. Soiling. Descriptive data on characteristics, including degree of soiling, of 110 eggs of varying age (time since laying). 2. Depredation. Results of an experiment comparing predation by gulls on 184 soiled versus clean eggs. 3. Latency predation by gulls. For the 57 eggs that were predated in the experiment, these are the data, including latency to be depredated, on their characteristics. 4.
