Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Raw data collected during flight initiation distance assays on jays of both species. Columns represent: ID- jay's unique color band code; Group- territory identifier; BS?- whether FID was collected during the breeding season; Time- time of day; Trial- whether it was the jay's 1st, 2nd, etc. FID; Observer- identifier of research collecting the FID (1 represents the first author, other numbers are field assistants); FID- the number of meters (assessed by pacing) between observer's position when the jay flew, and the jay's location; Location- how high was the jay when first approached; Species- CASJ (California Scrub-Jay) and MEJA (Mexican Jay)
