Title Foraging preferences
Downloaded 2 times
Description This file contains the data used to analyse the foraging preferences of buff-footed antechinus (Antechinus mysticus) foraging along narrow and wide beams of varying length. It contains: individual antechinus ID, sex, mass (g), beam type, beam diameter (mm), beam length (m), beam position within the experimental enclosure, proportion of food eaten from the platform at the end of the beam, proportion of time spent at the platform at the end of the beam, and proportion of total visits made to the platform at the end of the beam.

Title Escape behaviour
Downloaded 1 time
Description This file contains the stride-by-stride data used to analyse the escape speeds and behavioural decisions of buff-footed antechinus (Antechinus mysticus) escaping along narrow and wide beams. It contains: individual antechinus ID, sex, mass (g), beam diameter (mm), trial number, stride number, maximum stride velocity (ms-1), presence of a slip, time to return to 1.1 ms-1 after the slip, strides to return to 1.1 ms-1 after the slip, and whether or not the animal ever returned to 1.1 ms-1 after the slip.

Title Foraging behaviour and experiment comparisions
Downloaded 1 time
Description This file contains the data used to analyse the foraging movement speeds and behavioural decisions of buff-footed antechinus (Antechinus mysticus) foraging on narrow and wide beams. It also contains comparative data for escaping antechinus, to compare foraging and escape movement decisions. It contains: individual antechinus ID, sex, experiment (foraging or escaping), mass (g), beam type, beam diameter (mm), beam length (m), trial number, movement speed (ms-1, mean speed over first 20cm of the beam), presence of a slip, number of slips, and direction of movement.
