Gentoo penguins gain loss

The file describes the size of gentoo penguins colonies in terms of increase/decrease of the population size. Data were derived from the absolute values of count of penguins per colony provided by Falklands Conservation (Island Wide Census Gentoo 1995_2010). The gain and loss from the period of 5 year to the other was assessed in terms of 1 (loss) 0 (no change) and 2 (increase)

Lineage The gain and the loss of number of penguins per colony was calculated by comparing the values of one census period from the other. The periods are 1995-2000; 2000-2005 and finally 2005-2010. Increment, no change and decrement were subsequently converted into classes: increment=2,no change=0 and decrement=1. As a result, there were three new columns per each period (difference) called classP1, classP2, classP3 (class period 1) which were plotted to show what happened from year to year.
