On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Mammals data set which pertains to Garland(1983) Data on Running Speed of Mammals. The Mammals data set is found in the quantreg R package. You can load the Mammals data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Mammals"). This will load the data into a variable called Mammals. If R says the Mammals data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("quantreg") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Mammals R data set. The size of this file is about 2,041 bytes.

Documentation

Garland(1983) Data on Running Speed of Mammals

Description

Observations on the maximal running speed of mammal species and their body mass.

Usage

data(Mammals)

Format

A data frame with 107 observations on the following 4 variables.

weight

Body mass in Kg for "typical adult sizes"

speed

Maximal running speed (fastest sprint velocity on record)

hoppers

logical variable indicating animals that ambulate by hopping, e.g. kangaroos

specials

logical variable indicating special animals with "lifestyles in which speed does not figure as an important factor": Hippopotamus, raccoon (Procyon), badger (Meles), coati (Nasua), skunk (Mephitis), man (Homo), porcupine (Erithizon), oppossum (didelphis), and sloth (Bradypus)

Details

Used by Chappell (1989) and Koenker, Ng and Portnoy (1994) to illustrate the fitting of piecewise linear curves.
