Title Giving up density data
Downloaded 62 times
Description This table contains data from studies that conducted giving-up density experiments. Predator treatment indicates whether predators were present, absent, or whether predator treatments were pooled. Habitat indicates whether habitat was open, cover, pooled (both), or "simulated" (experiments conducted indoors where artificial habitat was not described; these were excluded from our analyses). Initial seed weight is the amount of seed offered to rodents in grams, and GUD bright and dark are the amounts of seed remaining after foraging trials on full moon and new moon nights, respectively.

Title Responses of mammals to moonlight
Downloaded 62 times
Description This file contains data on the response of nocturnal mammals to moonlight. Zr is Fisher's z-transformation of correlation coefficients (r), which was used as the measure of effect size in the meta-analysis. Negative values indicate that moonlight suppressed activity and positive values indicate that moonlight increased activity. "Dendf" = Denominator degrees of freedom. Response type is the type of response to moonlight reported in the study. GUD = giving-up density, activity = time spent active, hunting = time spent hunting, capture/sight = number of sightings or captures, habitat shift = change in habitat use, predation = change in predation rate (negative = higher predation rate with moonlight). Preferred cover: 1=open, 1.5= open/bush, 2=grass, 2.5= open/forest or grass/bush, 3=bush, 3.5=bush/forest, 4=forest.
