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.
Field data comprising shorebird counts and biophysical survey variables, used in generalised linear mixed-effects models described in the manuscript. Survey month: 1 = July or August, 2 = September, 3 = October; Tide Height: tide height in cm at the highest or lowest tide point during the survey; Intertidal flats cover: 1 = seawater was against the seawall during the count, 0 = seawater did not reach the seawall during the count; Water cover: % cover of water over the surface area of the whole pond; Distance: distance to seawall measured in kilometres using Google Earth; Vegetation cover: estimated non-water surface area covered by vegetation, measured as <10%, 10-30%, 30-50%, 50-70% or >70%; Bund: number of unvegetated bunds (i.e. the bank surrounding the pond, sometimes called berms) for each pond, 1= at least one unvegetated bund, 0 = no unvegetated bunds; Structures: number of structures (telephone/electricity poles/wires, buildings and trees) within 10m of the perimeter of the pond; Size: pond size measured in hectares using Google Earth; Total Count: count of total shorebird abundance (all individuals of all species).
