Title Morphological and isotope data of the vinous-throated parrotbills in Taiwan
Downloaded 88 times
Description This file contains data on 170 individual adult Paradoxornis webbianus captured between 2009 and 2012 from eight sites in Taiwan. The columns include, from left to right: sampling data (short date format: yyyy/mm/dd), species scientific name, latitude of the site, longitude of the site, site full name in English, site short name used in the associated manuscript, tag showing the band number of the bird (a number without a beginning letter "K" indicates the bird died during handling), sex of the bird, stable carbon isotope values of the bird's feather tissue, stable nitrogen isotope values of the bird's feather tissue, altitude of the site, the bird's bill length in mm, the bird's bill width in mm, the bird's bill depth in mm, the bird's wing length in mm, and the name of the technician who performed the morphological measurements. Sex of the bird was determined by molecular sexing. Stable carbon and nitrogen isotope values were meausured on a ThermoFinnigan Delta Plus Advantage Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (Bremen, Germany).

Title Isotope data of plant foliar samples in Taiwan
Downloaded 52 times
Description This file contains stable carbon and nitrogen isotope data of foliar samples from 69 plants (50 unique taxa at species or genus level) collected at six sites in Taiwan. These are used to calculate baseline isotope values for the consumer species, Paradoxornis webbianus, in the associated publication. The columns are: plant species scientific name, stable carbon isotope value of the foliar tissue, stable nitrogen isotope value of the foliar tissue, elevation, latitude and longitude of the site, full name of the site and short name of the site.
