Data from: Disturbance and predation risk influence vigilance synchrony of Black-necked Cranes Grus nigricollis, but not as strongly as expected

Dejun Kong, Anders Pape Møller & Yanyun Zhang
Animals monitor surrounding dangers independently or cooperatively (synchronized and coordinated vigilance), with independent and synchronized scanning being prevalent. Coordinated vigilance, including unique sentinel behaviour, is rare in nature, since it is time-consuming and limited in terms of benefits. No evidence showed animals adopt alternative vigilance strategies during antipredation scanning yet. Considering the non-independent nature of both synchronization and coordination, we assessed whether group members could keep alert synchronously or in a coordinated fashion under different...
