Data from: Land use, season, and parasitism predict metal concentrations in Australian flying fox fur
There are two .csv files in this upload. The "Pteropus_metal_data_wide.csv" file contains metal concentrations (reported in ng/g) measured in fur samples collected from Pteropus flying foxes (P. alecto, P. conspicillatus, P. poliocephalus). Flying foxes were captured from 2015-2018 at multiple sites across Australia. The file also contains capture information (e.g. date, location) and biological information (e.g. species, sex, age class, parasitism) for each flying fox. The "Pteropus_metadata.csv" file provides further details on all column names in the primary data file, including the specific metals that were quantified. Detailed information on the study methods and results can be found in the associated Science of the Total Environment publication, "Land use, season, and parasitism predict metal concentrations in Australian flying fox fur" by Sánchez et al.
