Teal (Anas crecca) Ring Recovery Dataset

Description

This dataset describes the location and date of recovery of 800 teal ringed in Camargue, southern France between January 1952 and February 1978 using standard dabbling duck funnel traps hidden in the vegetation.

Format

The following variables are given for each recovery:

x

date

a vector of class POSIXct containing the date of recovery. Actually, only the day and month have been indicated. The year of recovery has been set to 1900 or 1901, and should not be taken into account in the analysis.
