  1. Type: full

    Stingrays are thought to play important ecological roles in coral reef ecosystems. However, little is known about juvenile stingray movement patterns and habitat use in coral reefs. This study used active acoustic telemetry to determine fine-scale movement patterns and habitat use of juvenile cowtail stingrays (Pastinachus ater) in a coral reef flat environment.

    The dataset consists of an Excel spreadsheet including the active tracks of seven cowtail stingrays (4 males and 3 females). Tracking occurred between April and December 2016. Each individual was tracked over 2 days, generating a total of 14 active tracks ranging from 4.91 to 9 h.

    Depth and tide height values are in cm; Distance from start, total distance and distance from shore are in m; and Rate of Movement (ROM) in m.min-1.

    Tracking data were analysed using the adehabitatLT, adehabitatHR and glmmTMB packages in R.
