Title Raw Data Klepsatel et al

Description We followed the life histories of a large number of individual females, derived from three recently caught, geographically distinct wild populations from Austria, Zambia and South Africa over their lifetime. We measured ovariole number, fecundity (daily number of eggs), hatchability (of the offspring of the experimental females) as a function of maternal age, and lifespan (age at death) of experimental females under optimal laboratory conditions. Here we present the demographic raw data for these traits/measurements; each line represents an individual female fly. Fom these raw data, we then estimated individual lifetime fecundity, total lifetime production of viable eggs, and the length of the reproductive and post-reproductive period (these estimates are not shown here but can be found in our publication). For details see our paper, Klepsatel et al. (2013) in Journal of Evolutionary Biology. For additional, more specific (sub-)datasets based on the raw data presented here (e.g., data for survival analysis based on the distribution of age at death), which we have used for particular statistical analyses, or for statistical analyses outputs please contact the corresponding author, Thomas Flatt at thomas.flatt@unil.ch
