Data were collected and made available by Dr. Kristen Gorman and the Palmer Station, Antarctica LTER, a member of the Long Term Ecological Research Network. Please see [https://github.com/allisonhorst/palmerpenguins](https://github.com/allisonhorst/palmerpenguins) for more information. ## Citation Anyone interested in publishing the data should contact [Dr. Kristen Gorman](https://www.uaf.edu/cfos/people/faculty/detail/kristen-gorman.php) about analysis and working together on any final products. From Gorman et al. (2014): _"Individuals interested in using these data are expected to follow the US LTER Network’s Data Access Policy, Requirements and Use Agreement: https://lternet.edu/data-access-policy/."_ This dataset has been derived from the R package palmerpenguins available from [https://allisonhorst.github.io/palmerpenguins/](https://allisonhorst.github.io/palmerpenguins/).

In this simplified dataset, culmen length and depth are renamed as variables bill_length_mm and bill_depth_mm to be more intuitive. For this penguin data, the culmen (bill) length and depth are measured as shown below (thanks Kristen Gorman for clarifying!): <img src="https://github.com/allisonhorst/palmerpenguins/raw/master/man/figures/culmen_depth.png" data-canonical-src="https://github.com/allisonhorst/palmerpenguins/raw/master/man/figures/culmen_depth.png" width="500"> CC0 ARFF 1 0 2020-01-22T17:34:52Z 0 penguins active 0 species https://www.openml.org/data/download/21854866/penguins.arff
