Martin, Jeff; Barboza, Perry S. (2020), Data from: Decadal heat and drought drive body size of North American bison (Bison bison) along the Great Plains, Dryad, Dataset, https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.nvx0k6dnf
Excerpt from the methods section of the article, "The spatial dataset included 1,995 photogrammetric images collected from 19 localities over the summer of 2017 and the following winter of 2017-2018 along the Great Plains. Ultimately, we used 773 photographs from 579 female and 194 male Bison to estimate height (HE; m; Fig. 5) and body mass (BME; kg; Fig. 3) across 19 herds ranging from Saskatchewan (52.2 °N) to Texas (30.7 °N) during the summer of 2017 and following winter of 2017-2018. As an aside, this spatial dataset included WICA (43.6 °N; Fig. 2, site 8) as a site to establish a control for comparison between the spatial and temporal datasets. Bison BME was predicted from known H and estimated HE (using results from Equation 1, which are reported as Equations 3 and 4) for both males and females."
