This data frame describes the habitat use by the Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix), the Rock Partridge (Alectoris graeca) and the Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus), in the Vanoise National Park (French Alps), from 1990 to 2000.
This data frame has 3110 rows and eight columns describing the habitat
for each occurrence of three species of Galliformes. For each
located occurrence (in rows), the employees of the national park have noted:
the species, the elevation (in metres), the aspect (8 classes), the
habitat type (7 categories,
FR means "fallen rocks") and the
date (season, day, month and year).
