Species: Gopherus agassizii
Taxonomic class: Reptilia
Population type: free-ranging
Geographical location: Nevada, USA
Data collection technique: radio tags
Interaction type: social projection bipartite
Definition of interaction: A bipartite network was first constructed based on burrow use - an edge connecting a tortoise node to a burrow node indicated burrow use by the individual. Social networks of desert tortoises were then constructed by the bipartite network into a single-mode projection of tortoise nodes.
Edge weight type: unweighted
Total duration of data collection: 8 months
Time resolution of data collection (within a day):
Time span of data collection (within a day): focal follow/ad libitum
Note: Networks represent social data collected over different years and inactive (November�February)/active (March�October) season.
