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.
This dataset shows the results of the mating competition experiments when using the bulb duster method of marking the mosquitoes. The trial number (T1-T3) is given, and the ID of the males involved. The number before the decimal point indicates the cage number, and the .1, .2 and .3 indicate the order of the matings within the cage. Those males that do not have a decimal point in their ID number did not mate, and solely the cage number is given. The diet of the male and the dust that they were marked with is given. Details on whether they mated (Yes) or not (No) is provided. For those males that mated, the females diet and dust type is also given. The wing-length in mm of both the mated and unmated males is also provided.
