Description 16-06-2019. Written by Jasper Steenvoorden, University of Amsterdam. Metadata for the supporting data for the article "The potential importance of unburned islands as refugia for the persistence of wildlife species in fire-prone ecosystems", submitted to Ecology & Evolution. WinRAR file contains four files, three for habitat data, one for lek count data. See details of content below. FILE: Lek_Counts_Data.csv. This .csv (comma delimited) file contains information on the observed male attendance on all analysed leks ("Lek_Number", total of 39) between 1984 to 2017. Additional columns include 1) "Fire_year", which indicates the year in which the specific lek or area around the lek was burned, and 2) "Fire_category", which represents the category (fire perimeter, unburned island, small buffer and large buffer) the lek was located in, based on spatial location in or around a fire. "NA" indicates no count was performed at that lek during a specific year. FILE: Habitat_Covariate_Data_0p8km_Scale.csv. This .csv (comma delimited) file contains information on the habitat covariate values at 0.8km scale around leks that were retrieved for the analysis on the effect of post-fire habitat composition on post-fire male attendance trends. Unburned area around each lek is added as a variable but was not used as a predictor variable due to high multicollinearity with vegetation height. Columns in this file are: "Slope_After_Fire" - percentage growth/decline of male attendance per year after lek or area around lek was burned. "Unburned_Area" - percentage unburned area around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Vegetation_Height_Value" - average vegetation height around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Elevation" - mean elevation of the area around a specific lek at 0.8km scale around lek. "Cheatgrass_Cover_Value" - percentage area around lek with unsuitable cheatgrass cover (>8% cover per pixel). FILE: Habitat_Covariate_Data_6p4km_Scale.csv. This .csv (comma delimited) file contains information on the habitat covariate values at 6.4km scale around leks that were retrieved for the analysis on the effect of post-fire habitat composition on post-fire male attendance trends. Unburned area around each lek is added as a variable but was not used as a predictor variable due to high multicollinearity with vegetation height. Columns in this file are: "Slope_After_Fire" - percentage growth/decline of male attendance per year after lek or area around lek was burned. "Unburned_Area" - percentage unburned area around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Vegetation_Height_Value" - average vegetation height around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Elevation" - mean elevation of the area around a specific lek at 6.4km scale around lek. "Cheatgrass_Cover_Value" - percentage area around lek with unsuitable cheatgrass cover (>8% cover per pixel). FILE: Habitat_Covariate_Data_18km_Scale.csv. This .csv (comma delimited) file contains information on the habitat covariate values at 18km scale around leks that were retrieved for the analysis on the effect of post-fire habitat composition on post-fire male attendance trends. Unburned area around each lek is added as a variable but was not used as a predictor variable due to high multicollinearity with vegetation height. Columns in this file are: "Slope_After_Fire" - percentage growth/decline of male attendance per year after lek or area around lek was burned. "Unburned_Area" - percentage unburned area around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Vegetation_Height_Value" - average vegetation height around lek after lek or area around lek was burned. "Elevation" - mean elevation of the area around a specific lek at 18km scale around lek. "Cheatgrass_Cover_Value" - percentage area around lek with unsuitable cheatgrass cover (>8% cover per pixel).
