# Anuran Larvae Counts in Minnow Traps Across Pond Type

### Description

This data set consists of counts of anuran larvae as a function of pond
type, pond perimeter, and presence of water scorpions (*Ranatra* sp.).

### Usage

1 | ```
data(min.trap)
``` |

### Format

A data frame with 24 observations on the following 6 variables.

`Type`

pond type, denotes the location of ponds in either bog or upland environment

`Num_anura`

number of anuran larvae in minnow traps

`Effort`

number of trap nights (i.e., number of traps x days of trapping) in each pond

`Perimeter`

pond perimeter in meters

`Num_ranatra`

number of water scorpions trapped in minnow traps

`log.Perimeter`

natural log of perimeter

### Details

Mazerolle (2006) uses this data set to illustrate model selection for Poisson regression with low overdispersion.
