Salamanders: Repeated counts of salamanders in streams
A data set containing counts of salamanders with site covariates and sampling covariates. Each of 23 sites was sampled 4 times.
When using this data set, please cite Price et al. (2016) as well as the Dryad data package (Price et al. 2015).
A data frame with 644 observations on the following 10 variables:
name of a location where repeated samples were taken
factor indicating whether the site was affected by mountain top removal coal mining
amount of cover objects in the stream (scaled)
Days since precipitation (scaled)
water temperature (scaled)
day of year (scaled)
abbreviated species name, possibly also life stage
number of salamanders observed
