Data from: A combined mesowear analysis of Mexican Bison antiquus shows a generalist diet with geographical variation

Roberto Díaz-Sibaja, Eduardo Jiménez-Hidalgo, Javier Ponce-Saavedra & María Luisa García-Zepeda
Bison antiquus was one of the largest and most widely distributed megafaunal species during the Late Pleistocene in North America, giving rise to the modern plains bison in the middle Holocene. Despite the importance of the ancient bison, little is known about its feeding ecology. We employed a combination of extended mesowear, and mesowear III to infer the diet preference and habitat use of three Mexican samples of B. antiquus. Two northern samples from the...

Data from: Variations in age- and sex-specific survival rates help explain population trend in a discrete marine mammal population

1. Understanding the drivers underlying fluctuations in the size of animal populations is central to ecology, conservation biology and wildlife management. Reliable estimates of survival probabilities are key to population viability assessments, and patterns of variation in survival can help inferring the causal factors behind detected changes in population size. 2. We investigated whether variation in age and sex-specific survival probabilities could help explain the increasing trend in population size detected in a small, discrete...
