datasetposted on 24.11.2019 by Diane Thomson
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.
All data were collected at the Landels-Hill Big Creek Reserve, Monterey County, CA, U.S.A. First file: “Pollen supplementation data.csv”. The column headings represent: “Year”= year of study; “Patch”= location; “Plant”= identity of individual plant; “Aborted.hp”=whether the pollen-supplemented flower aborted (y) or set fruit and produced seeds (n); “Weight.hp”= weight in mg of capsule from pollen-supplemented flower; “Aborted.control”=whether the control (unsupplemented) flower aborted (y) or set fruit and produced seeds (n); “Weight.control”= weight in mg of capsule from control (unsupplemented) flower; “PLindex”=pollen limitation index, defined as the ratio of weights for supplemented relative to control capsules ; “lntranPLindex”=natural log-transformed PL index; TotalScroph= total abundance of Scrophularia californica flowers on the transect for this patch, in units of 500 flowers; “Vvisit”= mean Vespula pennsylvanica visitors per transect count divided by total abundance of S. californica in units of 500 flowers; “Avisit”= mean Apis mellifera visitors per transect count divided by total abundance of S. californica in units of 500 flowers; “Bvisit”= mean Bombus visitors per transect count divided by total abundance of S. californica flowers in units of 500 flowers; “Growprecip”= total growing-year precipitation (Sept. 1- Aug. 31), in cm; “Time”=timing of pollen-supplementation experiments, measured in how many days later the supplementations began than in the earliest year (2007, on June 23).
