#' @title Portal rodent data 
#'
#' @description An example LDATS dataset, functionally that used in 
#'   Christensen \emph{et al.} (2018). The data are counts of 21 rodent 
#'   species across 436 sampling events, with the count being the total number 
#'   observed across 8 50 m x 50 m plots, each sampled using 49 live traps 
#'   (Brown 1998, Ernest \emph{et al.} 2016).
#'
#' @format A \code{list} of two \code{data.frame}-class objects with rows 
#'   corresponding to documents (sampling events). One element is the
#'   document term table (called \code{document_term_table}), which contains
#'   counts of the species (terms) in each sample (document), and the other is
#'   the document covariate table (called \code{document_covariate_table}) 
#'   with columns of covariates (newmoon number, sin and cos of the fraction
#'   of the year).

#' @description Counts of 17 rodent species across 24 sampling events, 
#'   with the count being the total number observed across three trapping webs
#'   (146 traps in total) (Lightfoot \emph{et al.} 2012).
