Description

Data were collected at 307 survey locations ("point transects") on Santa Cruz Island, California during the Fall of 2008. The distance data are binned into 3 distance intervals [0-100], (100-200], and (200-300]. The coordinates of the survey locations as well as 3 habitat covariates are also included.
