Title Biomass ratio of wild dog packs in Kenya
Downloaded 6 times
Description The file presents, for each day before, during, and after the denning period, the ratio between the total biomass of wild dogs in each pack, and the biomass of wild dogs able to feed directly from kills (i.e. excluding pups and babysitters confined to the den). Data are from our Kenya study site.

Title Activity every 24hrs for wild dogs in Kenya

Description Summed activity over 24hr periods (sunrise-sunrise) from 10 GPS-collared African wild dogs during denning and non-denning periods in Kenya

Title Home range size of wild dogs in Kenya before, during, and after denning
Downloaded 7 times
Description Home range size (in sq km) of GPS-collared wild dogs, for 10-day periods before, during, and after denning in Kenya. Home range size was measured using Minimum Convex Polygons. Wild dog WDM123 was tracked through two denning periods.

Title Activity every 5mins for wild dogs in Kenya
Downloaded 10 times
Description File shows, for 10 GPS-collared African wild dogs in Kenya, activity every 5 mins measured relative to the mean activity for that time point smoothed over a 20min period. Concurrent data on temperature measured by the collar are also provided.

Title Number of den moves vs ambient temperature in Kenya
Downloaded 9 times
Description The file shows the number of times packs of wild dogs in Kenya shifted den during each denning period, and mean daily maximum ambient temperature during the same period. Data are limited to the GPS-collared wild dogs monitored over an entire denning period. Only data from GPS-collared packs were used because monitoring using VHF collars was necessarily less intensive and may have failed to detect some den moves.

Title Annual reproductive success and population density at all 3 sites
Downloaded 9 times
Description The file shows, for each calendar year of monitoring in all three study sites, the estimated density (adults and yearlings per 100 sq km), and mean litter size per pack and mean pup survival to 12 months for the previous year.

Title Trend in denning-season ambient temperature at our Botswana site
Downloaded 10 times
Description The files shows, for each year of monitoring at our Botswana site, mean daily maximum ambient temperature for the dates 20 May-10 Sep. The year 1994 was conservatively excluded due to unusually low reported temperature and hence high leverage; including this year strengthened rather than weakened the observed warming trend.
