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 contains raw stable isotope data (CNH) of historic (museum) tail hair samples of two sympatric equid species, namely the Przewalski´s horse and the Asiatic wild ass (khulan) from the Dzungarian Gobi (Mongolia, China). Data were originally used to draw inferences about multi-year diet seasonality and isotopic dietary niche characteristics of historic (pre-extinction) Przewalski´s horses and historic Asiatic wild asses, as well as for comparison with their extant conspecifics (previously published in Burnik Šturm et al, J. Appl. Ecol., doi:10.1111/1365-2664.12825; 2016).
