warblers: Warblers Data Set

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

Five species of warblers were studied to determine the factors controlling the species abundances and competition (MacArthur 1958).

Usage

1
data("warblers")

Format

A list with 3 elements: xtab is a list of sample x species matrices (sec_prc: percentages of total number of seconds of observations, num_prc: percentages of total number of observations in seconds, sec_cnt: counts based on percentages and totals of seconds, num_cnt: counts based on percentages and totals), samp is a data frame with sample level attributes such as height (6 is the base, 1 is the top of trees, most trees were 50–60 feet tall) and depth of branches in the canopy (B: bare or lichen- covered base, M: middle zone of old needles, T: terminal zone of new, less than 1.5 years old, needles or buds) , taxa is a data frame with scientific and common names for the species.
