bobcat: Bobcat data

Description Format Source See Also Examples


Example bobcat data for multimark package.


The data are summarized in a 46x8 matrix containing observed encounter histories for 46 bobcats across 8 sampling occasions. Bobcats are bilaterially asymmetrical, and sampling was conducted using camera stations consisting of a single camera.

Because the left-side cannot be reconciled with the right-side, the two types of “marks” in this case are the pelage patterns on the left- and right-side of each individual. Encounter type 0 corresponds to non-detection, encounter type 1 corresponds to left-sided detection, encounter type 2 corresponds to right-sided detection.

Both-sided encounters were never observed in this dataset, hence the most appropriate multimark data type is data.type="never".
