Survival and reproductive success of migrant and resident wildlife in published studies of partially migratory populations

This is a dataset generated from information extracted from previously published studies, for the purpose of a meta-analysis investigating fitness benefits of different migratory strategies in partially migratory populations.

Each line of data includes a mean and associated variance for a given fitness metric for both migrants and residents extracted from a study, in addition to information concerning population location, study species, type of fitness metric, year data were collected, and details on the publication from which the data were obtained.

Data were collected as part of a NERC-funded PhD project, grant number NE/L002582/1.

Provenance & quality

Studies were identified through a literature search carried out in December 2017, in which we retained any study which compared direct fitness measures for migrants and residents from within the same partially migratory population. We did not limit the search to any taxonomic group. Freely available grey literature were also included in the search.

Means and SDs were extracted directly from the publication where reported. Where these were not reported, they were calculated from other reported statistics, or extracted from plots displaying the necessary data using digitising software. Studies which did not report anything from which means and SDs could be calculated were excluded, as were those for which sample sizes were not reported.
