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.
The data file lists the nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations of the forage and herbivore dung used in Figure 1 in the paper. The data file consists of 3 sheets. Sheet 1 is the meta data explaining the column names in sheet 2 and 3. Sheet 2 contains the forage nutrient data of 4 N-fixing tree species (i.e., Acacia (Senegalia) brevispica, A. mellifera, Acacia (Vachellia) drepanolobium, and A. gerrardii) and 4 C4-grass species (i.e., Brachiaria lachnantha, Pennisetum mezianum, P. stramineum, and Themeda triandra). Sheet 3 contains the dung nutrient data of 5 browser species (i.e., Guenther’s dikdik, eland, giraffe, greater kudu and Thomson’s gazelle) and 4 grazer species (African buffalo, Burchell’s zebra, Grevy’s zebra, and common warthog).
