Data used for analysis of fox squirrel (Sciurus niger) antipredator behavior at the Joseph W. Jones Center in Newton, GA. Site: Code for paired exclosure/control Treatment: X = Exclosure, C = Control Transect: Set of 3 GUD trays extending away from a tree TranBlock: Grouping variable for all transects within a 100m radius Tray_Code: Tray identifier within transect GUD: Giving up density (g) of pecans (5.0 = no foraging) Dist: Distance from nearest tree Robel_Mean_5m: Mean Robel Pole height recorded at a distance of 5m at 1m eye height Pct_Can: Mean percent canopy closure measured using a spherical densiometer
