All of the data I have collected is freely available. This includes fisher movement and accelerometer data and weasel skull data. My current work on golden eagles uses data that were all collected by others. I am learning both the challenges and benefits of using others data and others using my data.
Movement data: I deployed GPS collars (manufactured by e-obs.de), set to collect a location > 2 minutes, continuously on fishers (methods described in Brown et al. 2012, see papers). The location data used for the corridor paper is publicly available at www.movebank.org under the study name “Martes pennanti LaPoint New York”. Please view the data and contact me for permission for its use. Note that the fix attempt schedule varied within and between individuals.
Accelerometer data: I also collected motion data on fishers using tri-axial accelerometers, recording 5.1 second bursts at 3 minute intervals. The raw data are unitless, but can be translated into g or overall dynamic body acceleration (ODBA). Scharf et al. 2016 analyzed these data, and published them at figshare.com. Please contact me with inquiries.
Skull data: I’ve taken skull measurements on stoats (Mustela erminea) and weasels (M. nivalis) specimens for two papers (so far...). The weasel data in Dechmann et al. 2017 are a subset of those in LaPoint et al. 2017 (see papers page). Regardless, the data (both weasel and shrews) for Dechmann et al. can be found in the online Supplemental Material section of the paper, here. The larger stoat and weasel dataset from LaPoint et al. 2017 can be found on Dryad.org here.
