Dataset and R codes for Ecosystem Services paper - PhD thesis chapter 1

This dataset contains two excel files and three R scripts necessary to perform the analyses involved in the paper entitled "Large mammal diversity matters for wildlife tourism in Southern African protected areas: insights for management". The first excel file "Four_parks_Abundance" contains data on ungulate and predator abundances in Etosha National Park (Namibia), Chobe National Park (Botswana), Kruger National Park and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park (South Africa) and is necessary to run abundance-based models of the paper. The second dataset excel file "Four_parks" contains similar data and is necessary to run richness-based models of the paper.
