Ecological Data : sites-variables, sites-species, where and when

Description

This data set contains information about sites, environmental variables and Ephemeroptera Species.

Usage

data(meau)

Format

meau is a list of 3 components.

mil
is a data frame with 24 sites and 10 physicochemical variables.
fau
is a data frame with 24 sites and 13 Ephemeroptera Species.
plan
is a data frame with 24 sites and 2 factors.
  1. datis a factor with 4 levels-seasons.
  2. stais a factor with 6 levels-sites.

Details

Data set equivalents to meaudret: one site (6) along the Bourne, a Meaudret affluent and one physico chemical variable - the oxygen concentration were added.
