Raw dataset of Italian wild boar GPS spatial location for the study "Sex-specific seasonal variations of wild boar distance traveled and home range size"
The following document contains raw spatial locations collected by means of GPS telemetry on free-ranging wild boar in Central Italy from 2013 to 2020, used in the study entitled "Sex-specific seasonal variations of wild boar distance traveled and home range size". The excel is composed of three sheets: #1 individual metadata, #2 GPS spatial locations, and #3 legend.
Steps to reproduce
Wild boar were trapped from June 2013 to July 2020 (n=30, 17 females and 13 males) and sedated through a mixture of zolazepam and tiletamine (Zoletil 50 + 50 mg ml-1), either alone or in combination with xylazine. We estimated the age of captured individuals by teeth eruption and wear. Finally, we equipped them with GPS collars (GPS PRO light collar, Vectronic Aerospace GmbH).
