Reading the Graph: How many minutes did participants watch and collect data for on May 23rd? How does this compare to the other days during data collection? See what the sampling effort (i.e. the amount of time in which at least one participant was watching and collecting data), looked like in the visualization above for May 23rd and compare it to other days. Understanding how sampling effort changed by hour and by day is important to consider when looking at the other visualizations and before conducting statistical analyses.
Notes: The maximum number of minutes that could be watched during each hour interval is 60 minutes, and only the daylight hours, 5:00 A.M. to 21:00 P.M. (i.e. 9:00 P.M), are displayed.
