Title Paramecium & Didinium Abundance
Downloaded 3 times
Description Raw data from the main experiment, pertaining to ciliate abundances over time. Observations were input by row. Column titles specify the following: "day" -- day of the experiment on which the observation was made; "repID" -- replicate label of the microcosm; "trtmt" -- treatment label of the microcosm; "prey" -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Paramecium in the microcosm; "predator" -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Didinium in the microcosm; "parasite" -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Holospora in the microcosm; "species" -- the species to which the observation pertains ("PARA" -- Paramecium; "DIDI" -- Didinium); "vol" -- the volume sampled for the observation; "count" -- the number of individual present within the volume sampled.

Title Serratia Abundance

Description Raw data from the main experiment, pertaining to Serratia abundance over time. Observations were input by row. Column titles specify the following: "day" -- day of the experiment on which the observation was made; "repID" -- replicate label of the microcosm; "trtmt" -- treatment label of the microcosm; "prey" -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Paramecium in the microcosm; "predator -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Didinium in the microcosm; "parasite" -- presence (yes) or absence (no) of Holospora in the microcosm; "species" -- the species to which the observation pertains ("SERRA" -- Serratia); "Platevol" -- volume of sample (in microliters) plated on agar gel for incubation; "Dilution" -- the factor by which the original sample from the microcosm had been diluted before plating; "Colonies" -- the number of colony-forming units counted on the plate.
