Habitat use, diet, movement, and vegetation use by western gray squirrels (Sciurus griseus) in the North Cascades Range, USA, 2008-2011

June 13, 2018

Data are contained in a comma-separated spreadsheet files (.csv) that describe vegetation characteristics of high- and low-use areas, nest tree sites, and individual nest trees used by western gray squirrels in the North Cascades as determined through live-trapping and radiotelemetry at two study sites: Stehekin, and the southern Methow Valley (Squaw Creek drainage), Washington. Squirrels were live-trapped and radio-tracked from 2008-2011 for a University of Washington Ph.D. research project on western gray squirrel habitat selection.
