Title Dipteran oviposition response to varied predator species richness
Downloaded 8 times
Description This dataset contains raw oviposition count data for species of Diptera in Charles City county, Virginia, USA. Insects colonized artificial aquatic mesocosms that contained predator communities of varying predator species richness. Zero predators, or no predators contained no predator organisms. One predator, or single species treatments contained three individuals of only one of the three predator types used in the experiment. The three predator, or high richness treatment mesocosms each contained three individuals, one of each predator type used in the experiment. The Culex raft and chironomid mass columns contain counts of egg clutches for Culex spp. mosquitoes and chironomid midges, respectively, only. The dipteran clutches column contains counts for Culex spp. mosquitoes, chironomid midges, and additional dipteran colonizers, all summed for the indivudual mesocosm. These data were collected in the field during summer, 2014.
