Data Extent

Data from: Quantifying Insect Dispersal Distances from Trapping Detections Data to Predict Delimiting Survey Radii, CDFA distances raw data

Unedited trapping survey detections data for four insect species, with latitudes and longitudes and other spatial identifications removed per agreement with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).

Species and survey data as follows:
European grapevine moth (EGVM), Lobesia botrana, 2011-2013
Japanese beetle (JB), Popillia japonica, 2010-2019
Medfly, Ceratitis capitata, 2015-2019
Oriental fruit fly (OFF), Bactrocera dorsalis, 2015-2019

Data were used to quantify for each species the dispersal kernels, or total distances travelled, up to 30 days.
"Collected CDFA distances raw data v1.csv" is the data for all survey records in the dataset, including those that could not be clustered and analyzed. It has separate tabs for the raw data for each species.
