Dataset: Weak effects of geolocators on small birds: A meta-analysis controlled for phylogeny and publication bias



Data set contains formerly published and unpublished data used in the meta-analysis.
We quantitatively reviewed 549 records extracted from 74 published and 48 unpublished studies on over 7,800 tagged and 17,800 control individuals to examine the effects of geolocator tagging on small bird species (body mass <100 g). We calculated the effect of tagging on apparent survival, condition, phenology and breeding performance and identified the most important predictors of the magnitude of effect sizes.
