pheasant: Radio-Tracking of Pheasants

Description Usage Format Source


This data set describes the use and availability of 5 habitat types for 13 pheasants monitored using radio-tracking.




This list has three components:


a data frame giving the proportion of each habitat type (columns) on the study area. These habitat types are Scrub, Broadleaf, Coniferous, Grassland and Crop. These proportions are repeated by rows, for all animals (rows)


a data frame giving the proportion of each habitat type (columns) in the home range of each animal (rows)


a data frame giving the proportion of relocations of each animal (rows) reported in 3 of the 5 habitat types (columns). Indeed, Coniferous and Crops were not used by most of the animals.
