Title:Data and Procedures - Three and a half day field study of social behavior of the prairie vole
Author(s):Getz, Lowell L.
Subject(s):Prairie vole
Social behavior
Abstract:These data were obtained as part of a field study of social behavior of the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster in alfalfa fields (LF 2 and ALF 3) that was also used in the 25-year research (see http://hdl.handle.net/2142/162). During this study we monitored all nests twice weekly for 63 months, with very few skips of scheduled trapping (mostly during vacation periods and when had to attend meetings -- weather did not cause stoppage of trapping except for a very few days). We reformatted the social behavior data into a format for demographic analyses. These data essentially monitor a population every 3.5 days for 63 months.
