Details

The data consists of markings and recaptures of breeding adults each year during the breeding period from early March to early June. Birds were at least one year old when initially banded. In eurodip, each row gof seven digits corresponds to a capture-recapture story for a given dipper, 0 indicating an absence of capture that year and, in the case of a capture, 1, 2, or 3 representing the zone where the dipper is captured. This dataset corresponds to three geographical zones covering 200 square kilometers in eastern France. It was kindly provided to us by J.D. Lebreton.
