The Loon Project research focuses on two main issues: 1) how young animals acquire a territory, which they must have to breed, and 2) how older, established breeders hold onto their territories for as long as possible. In the course of exploring these two central issues, we have probed other areas, such as the impact of nesting platforms on reproductive success of loons, genetic parentage of loon chicks, changes in the territorial yodels of males, and local movements of breeding and non-breeding loons. More information can be found on the project website (http://www1.chapman.edu/~wpiper/index.html) including techniques (http://www1.chapman.edu/~wpiper/technique.html), and findings (http://www1.chapman.edu/~wpiper/findings.html).
The data package consists of the metadata for the audio files associated with The Loon Project. This data package must be uncompressed for use. In addition to the data described above, it includes an Ecological Metadata Language (EML) record, which describes in considerable detail the contents of the data table(s), methods, usage rights, and other information. All users of these data are strongly encouraged to review this EML record.Content replaced at author's request on 30-April-2012.
