Analysis of herbivory by deer, rabbits, and insects across an edge created by timber harvesting. The analysis also examines the effects of browsing events on the probability of future browsing by the same and different species.

The results are published in the following article:

The analysis_browse.R and analysis_pellet_counts.R files contain Bayesian analyses of browsing probability and a randomization test of pellet abundance, respectively.

The model_browse.R file contains BUGS code for the browse analysis.

The function_format_data.R file contains a function for parsing the raw browse and covariate data into more useful formats.

The figures folder contains code generating the figures in the final manuscript.

The data subfolder contains example CSV files representative of the actual data used in this study. I do not currently have permission to publish the complete raw data.

The supplements subfolder contains code for generating the supplementary information included with the paper.
