Data for: Testing the match-mismatch hypothesis in bighorn sheep in the context of climate change

Limoilou-Amelie Renaud, Marco Festa-Bianchet & Fanie Pelletier
In species with long gestation, females commit to reproduction several months before parturition. If cues driving conception date are uncoupled from spring conditions, parturition could be mistimed. Mismatch may increase with global change if the rate of temporal changes in autumn cues differs from the rate of change in spring conditions. Using 17 years of data on climate and vegetation phenology, we show that autumn temperature and precipitation, but not vegetation phenology, explain parturition date...
