Summary

The data are included in 8 separate text files: 1) "Sample_coordinates.txt". The file contains sample identifiers along with geographic coordinates associated with each sample. Coordinates are specified as UTM Zone 10 values (WGS84). 2) "Sample_genotypes.txt". The file contains a sample identifier along with microsatellite genotypes associated with each sample. 3) "uniform_conductances.asc". An ASCII text-based representation of a map containing idealized habitat for Northern Spotted Owls. 4) "1870_conductance.asc". An ASCII text-based representation of a map containing idealized habitat for Northern Spotted Owls in the 1870's. 5) "1940_conductance.asc". An ASCII text-based representation of a map containing idealized habitat for Northern [...]
