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.
Our observed measurements of toe pad performance (toe detachment angle). These data include all of our observed trials, covering multiple individuals. The "individual" column represents the "names" of the individual animals tested and span multiple studies, hence there is no universal naming theme. Unique names relate to each individual. Note that some Anolis species are assigned a name of "NA" indicating that individual was not recored for that species. Following Hagey it al Journal of Experimental Biology 2016 219: 1603-1607; doi: 10.1242/jeb.129940, we fit each individual's set of trials to the weibull distribution, estimating a scale parameter with error for each individual. We then calculated a weighted species average using each individuals estimated scale parameter, weighted by the inverse of their error.
