Title Bacterial cover data
Description Bacterial cover of A. echinatior ants scored from 0-12. Each ant is identified by an ID and the host and donor colony noted. Each treatment was replicated and each sub colony harboured 4 ants. Bacterial cover was scored on day 1, 4, 8, 12 and 16 after eclosion, at the time of experimental infection with Escovopsis and 2 weeks post infection. From these scores the logistic growth rate was estimated and subsequently this rate was Box-Cox transformed. Some subcolonies were excluded from the analysis due to garden loss.

Title Behaviour data
Description Behaviours performed by cross-fostered A. echinatior ants following experimental Escovopsis infection. For each sub-colony the frequency of behaviours performed by all individuals is noted, together with the proportion of time spent on each and the first four principal components following PCA. Some sub-colonies were excluded from the analysis due to garden loss.
