Attribute NameValues
Methodology
  • This dataset contains four files: foraging.scans.csv, transects.csv, underground.samples.csv, and rainfall.csv. Foraging data were collected using instantaneous scan samples from adult geladas, collected at 10-minute intervals. Transect data were collected using the point-intercept method. Underground samples were collected using a soil core. Rainfall data were collected with a rain gauge. Further details of the methods used in each data set are described in the associated meta data.
Description
  • This includes data used for analysis for the publication: "Graminivory and fallback foods: Annual diet profile of geladas (Theropithecus gelada) living in the Simien Mountains National Park, Ethiopia".
