"We compiled the home range size of a representative selection of adult marine
and terrestrial vertebrates: seabirds (n = 19), marine reptiles (n = 6),
marine fishes (n = 20), marine mammals (n = 22), terrestrial birds (n = 95),
terrestrial reptiles (n = 65), and terrestrial mammals (n = 616). We only
accepted home range estimates that described > 75% of an adult individual's
total utilized area. Home range sizes in our compilation were estimated by
authors using a variety of analytical techniques, including kernel utilization
distributions, minimum convex polygon estimates, and geometric estimation
techniques. We primarily accepted studies that used satellite, radio, or
acoustic telemetry to obtain data for home range size estimation, though
estimates produced from visual observations were accepted if a species' home
range was small enough that the author could accurately describe it in its
entirety without issue (e.g., the 1.3x10-5 km2 home range of the 2 g lizard
Anolis distichus). If multiple home range estimates meeting these criteria
were available from different studies on the same species, we averaged these
values. Likewise, we averaged values for different groups of individuals
within a species (e.g., sexes) if these values were reported in a single
study. Data on the adult body mass of all species included in the home range
dataset were preferentially drawn from the primary literature source from
which home range data were taken. If body mass data were not available in
these sources, they were collected from alternate databases or from peer-
reviewed publications.
Scientific names in this dataset were obtained from literature and include
some misspelled names and unaccepted synonyms. These names were matched to
species in several authoritative name sources. Taxonomic identifiers and match
quality results can be found in the supplemental document \"Species Name Match

"Description from NSF award abstract:
Climate change presents a profound challenge to the sustainability of coastal systems. Most research has overlooked the important coupling between human responses to climate effects and the cumulative impacts of these responses on ecosystems. Fisheries are a prime example of this feedback: climate changes cause shifts in species distributions and abundances, and fisheries adapt to these shifts. However, changes in the location and intensity of fishing also have major ecosystem impacts. This project's goal is to understand how climate and fishing interact to affect the long-term sustainability of marine populations and the ecosystem services they support. In addition, the project will explore how to design fisheries management and other institutions that are robust to climate-driven shifts in species distributions. The project focuses on fisheries for summer flounder and hake on the northeast U.S. continental shelf, which target some of the most rapidly shifting species in North America. By focusing on factors affecting the adaptation of fish, fisheries, fishing communities, and management institutions to the impacts of climate change, this project will have direct application to coastal sustainability. The project involves close collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and researchers will conduct regular presentations for and maintain frequent dialogue with the Mid-Atlantic and New England Fisheries Management Councils in charge of the summer flounder and hake fisheries. To enhance undergraduate education, project participants will design a new online laboratory investigation to explore the impacts of climate change on fisheries, complete with visualization tools that allow students to explore inquiry-driven problems and that highlight the benefits of teaching with authentic data. This project is supported as part of the National Science Foundation's Coastal Science, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability program - Coastal SEES.
The project will address three questions:
1) How do the interacting impacts of fishing and climate change affect the persistence, abundance, and distribution of marine fishes?
2) How do fishers and fishing communities adapt to species range shifts and related changes in abundance? and
3) Which institutions create incentives that sustain or maximize the value of natural capital and comprehensive social wealth in the face of rapid climate change?
An interdisciplinary team of scientists will use dynamic range and statistical models with four decades of geo-referenced data on fisheries catch and fish biogeography to determine how fish populations are affected by the cumulative impacts of fishing, climate, and changing species interactions. The group will then use comprehensive information on changes in fisher behavior to understand how fishers respond to changes in species distribution and abundance. Interviews will explore the social, regulatory, and economic factors that shape these strategies. Finally, a bioeconomic model for summer flounder and hake fisheries will examine how spatial distribution of regulatory authority, social feedbacks within human communities, and uncertainty affect society's ability to maintain natural and social capital.";

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
