Anguilla data



Anguilla australis distribution data

A number of sites with presence or absence of the short-finned eel (Anguilla australis) in New Zealand, and environmental data at these sites; and gridded data of the environmental variables for the study area.

type variable name values mean and range
Reach LocSed weighted average of proportional cover of bed sediment 1=mud, 2=sand, 3=fine gravel; 4=coarse gravel; 5=cobble; 6=boulder; 7=bedrock; 3.77, 1 to 7
Segment SegSumT Summer air temperature (degrees C) 16.3, 8.9 to 19.8
SegTSeas Winter air temperature (degrees C), normalised with respect to SegJanT 0.36, -4.2 to 4.1
