Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
Date_Processed DATE Date the tissue sample was processed in the laboratory.
100
Sample_Number NUMBER Laboratory vial number.
100
Sample_ID VARCHAR2 Sample identification number, generally consisting of the first initial of the Genus and species names, respectively, the last two digits of the sampling year, and the sequential number of the individual shark collected in that sampling year.
100
Species VARCHAR2 Scientific name (http://www.fishbase.org/search.php).
100
Tissue VARCHAR2 Tissue type; in this case, all samples consisted of white muscle tissue plugs collected by small 0.5 cubic cm biopsies.
100
Preservation VARCHAR2 Tissue preservation method.
100
d15N NUMBER Stable isotope ratio of carbon, expressed in typical delta notation form, where d13C = [(Rsample / Rstandard) - 1] 1000. In this equation, R is the ratio of 13C/12C isotope values; Rsample represents the tissue sample ratio and Rstandard represent the universal reference standard: PeeDee Belemnite.
100
d13C NUMBER Stable isotope ratio of nitrogen, expressed in typical delta notation form, where d15N = [(Rsample / Rstandard) - 1] 1000. In this equation, R is the ratio of 15N/14N isotope values; Rsample represents the tissue sample ratio and Rstandard represent the universal reference standard: atmospheric nitrogen gas.
100
C:N NUMBER Ratio of total carbon to total nitrogen in the sample tissue.
100
Total_Length NUMBER Total length, defined as the length from the anterior-most part of the shark to the tip of the longest caudal fin. Units for values are cm.
100
Weight NUMBER Total body weight. Units for values are kg.
100
Sex VARCHAR2 Sex, as determined by external examination of claspers (http://nefsc.noaa.gov/nefsc/Narragansett/sharks/sexdet.html).
100
Collection_Location VARCHAR2 Location the shark was collected, generally based on place names (bays, points) in Washington State.
100
Collection_Date DATE Date the tissue sample was collected from the shark.
