Abstract:
This data set describes the summer ecology of Arctic fox (Alopex lagopus; TSN 622025) in the Ardalin oil field (latitude north67.59723 longitude east 57.25381), Nenets Autonomous okrug, Arctic Russia. The surrounding habitat is Arctic tundra and located above the Arctic circle. This data set includes associated photos, videos. The Excel sheet includes data with the following worksheets: food items, timetable, den database, temperature, den presence, opportunistic sightings, opportunistic species list,predators, absence, transects, den disturbance, escape distances, noise measurements, explanation. We used GPS to collect all data. The biggest work sheet consist of 110 rows. The MS Excel sheet is available in OpenOffice and has an overall size of 150 KB. Other species covered in this data set are: Red fox (Vulpes vulpes, TSN 180604), Willow ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus, TSN 175804), Mountain hare (Lepus timidus, TSN 180113) and Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba, TSN 178476), Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica, TSN 179818, Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba, TSN 175024) and Bean Goose (Anser fabalis, TSN 175024). Please see also other data sets by the authors on circumpolar Arctic fox.
Purpose:
To describe the natural history of Arctic fox in an Arctic oil field of Russia.
