This file contains a restricted dataset of only adult bottlenose dolphins, sighted off the east coast of Scotland between 1989 and 2015. The monthly sighting histories were used to investigate if the detected trend in juvenile&adult survival was more likely a change in adult or juvenile survival. The file can be imported into RMark, and then converted to an .inp file to fit mark-recapture models (using MARK software). Time intervals (i.e. primary and secondary occasions) for robust design analysis are given in the file "time.intervals.txt"
