This data is from the manuscript titled "Why does it take two to tango? Lifetime fitness consequences of parental care in a burying beetle". It includes data on lifetime fitness measures (lifespan, number of reproductive attempts, number of offspring, total offspring mass, and mean offspring mass) for three types of parental care in Nicrophorus orbicollis: biparental care, uniparental care, and uniparental desertion.
