Long-term surveys of age structure in 13 ungulate and one ostrich species in the Serengeti, 1926–2018
The Serengeti ecosystem spans an extensive network of protected areas in Tanzania, eastern Africa, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is home to some of the largest animal migrations on the planet. Here, we describe a dataset consisting of the sample counts of three age classes (infant, juvenile and adult) of 13 ungulate and one ostrich species. Sample counts were tallied visually from the ground, or, in some instances, aerial photographs, during a period extending from 1926 to 2018.
