Title Niche breadth data
Downloaded 1 time
Description Levins niche breadth data for desert bighorn sheep. Levins niche breadth was calculated from individual fecal pellet groups collected from female desert bighorn sheep. Individual levins indices were then averaged for each year, season and climate period. See Cain et al. 2017 for more details.

Title Forage sample nutritional content
Downloaded 2 times
Description Nutritional content data for forage available to desert bighorn sheep on the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. N = nitrogen, DMD = calculated dry matter digestibility, NDF = neutral detergent fiber, ADF = acid detergent fiber, ADL = acid detergent lignin, and Moisture = moisture content. See Cain et al 2017 for more details.
