## Datasets for resource use and availability

### Description

A collection of datasets which can be used to calculate and compare selection ratios. Datasets are: `goat.sel, mule.sel, quail.sel, elk.sel, bighorn.sel, bighornAZ.sel, juniper.sel`

and are described (briefly) in Manly et al. (2002) and Aho and Bowyer (2015).

### Usage

```
data(moose.sel)
data(goat.sel)
data(quail.sel)
data(elk.sel)
data(bighorn.sel)
data(bighornAZ.sel)
data(juniper.sel)
```

### Format

Dataframes with observations on the following variables.

`resources`

A factor listing resource types.

`avail`

Proportional availability (for datasets without n2 and y2).

`y1`

A numeric vector: number of times the resource was used.

`y2`

A numeric vector: number of time the resource was observed.

`n1`

A numeric vector: number of times that all resources were used.

`n2`

A numeric vector: number of times that all resources were observed.
