Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
To estimate the pollen presentation schedule in each population, we tracked anther dehiscence in ten male-phase flowers on each day of data collection. Prior to first anther dehiscence, we arbitrarily chose ten fresh male-phase flowers and marked them with dental floss and a label. Every 30 minutes, we recorded the temperature and then returned to these flowers and recorded the number of locules dehisced (two locules per anther for a total of ten locules). We concluded tracking each flower when all ten locules had dehisced or, if the ten locules did not dehisce completely, when insect activity ceased.
