Title Female size, clutch size, and mean egg mass.
Downloaded 8 times
Description This file contains data on body size, clutch size, and mean egg mass for females in the "Late" and "Early" treatments. The columns are as follow: "treatment" (Early or Late), "pair" is a unique identifier for replicates within treatment, "carcass_mass" is the mass of the breeding carcass in grams, "female_family" identifies the family that the female was derived from, "female_pronotum" is the width of the female's pronotum in mm, "clutch_size" is the number of eggs laid, "mean_egg_mass(g)" is the mean mass of eggs in grams.

Title Breeding success data
Downloaded 6 times
Description This file contains data on breeding success from females in the "Late" or "Early" treatment. The columns are as follow: "treatment" Late or Early, "pair" is a unique identifier of replicate within treatment, "carcass_mass" is the mass of the breeding carcass in grams, "female_family" is the family the female was derived from, "female_pronotum" is the females pronotum width in mm, "success" is whether the breeding attempt produced at least one dispersing larvae (1 = yes, 0 = no), "larvae" is the number of larvae at dispersal, "total_brood_mass" is the mass (in grams) of the entire brood at dispersal, "mean_larval_mass" is the mean mass (in grams) of larvae from each brood.
