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 contains the acoustic and behavioural outcomes between one on one interactions between HMC and NMC males presented with a tethered UA female. We used a GLMM with a binomial distribution to test for the fixed effect of treatment (HMC/NMC) on the whether harmonic convergence was detected during an isolated mating attempt (Yes/No) with a U female. In a separate model, we tested for the effect of convergence, treatment, and their interaction on whether a pair formed a copula (Yes/No). We incorporated replicate pair, population and block into our models as random effects.
