Format

lerna is a data frame with 39 individuals (rows) and 5 variables (columns) of ID (skeletal number), sex, estimated age at death, and carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios, named id, sex, age, d13C, and d15N, respectively. sex is a factor with levels f, m, and u, which corresponds to famale, male, unknown, respectively. The estimated ages at death were midpoint values.
