Driver Sierra Blanca burning coding sheet

Part of the Sierra Blanca, NM project

Creator(s): Jonathan Driver

Year: 2012


“Modification” in the original dataset was a single column coding ‘C’ (cut), ‘G’ (gnawed by carnivores) or ‘B’ (burnt). This column was replicated three times in order to link this data to the three separate ontologies tDAR used to record these variables: “burning intensity,” “butchering,” and “gnawing.”
