datasetposted on 30.07.2019 by Matthew Schrader, Benjamin Jarrett, Darren Rebar, Rebecca Kilner
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.
Measures of breeding performance for all successful broods across the first 13 generations of experimental evolution. The columns are as follow: Carcass_mass_in_grams (the mass of the breeding carcass in grams), Environment (Control or No Care), Replicate (the replicate population, coded as A or B), Generation (the generation of experimental evolution), Pair (the unique breeding pair for a given Environment / Replicate / Generation), Brood_size (the number of larvae at dispersal), Brood_mass_in_grams (the total mass of all dispersing larvae in grams), Mean_larval_mass (the mean mass of dispersing larvae in grams, calculated as brood_mass_in grams/Brood_size).
