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.
We estimated total pollen production during each day of data collection. We covered a sample of male-phase flowers with fine mesh cages prior to anther dehiscence to prevent insect visitation. After insect visitation ended for the day, we collected 5-15 samples of the unvisited flowers to estimate the total number of pollen grains. Because we collected these flowers at the end of each day, these counts exclude pollen that may have passively fallen from anthers.
