Title Mesocosm experiment
Downloaded 2 times
Description These data were collected during the mesocosm experiment described in "Keystone nonconsumptive effects within a diverse predator community" by Meadows et al. 2017. A description of each column follows: 1- Source: treatment groups; 2- Exposure: C=caged mosquito larvae, NC= exposed mosquito larvae; 3- Sex: sex could only be determined for (most) adult mosquitoes; 4-Tp: days to pupation i.e. larval development period; 5- Longevity: adult mosquito longevity (eclosion-death, in days); 6- Density: total number of predators in mesocosm; 7- Aquarius: number of Aquarius in mesocosm; 8- Beetle: number of Agabus + Tropisternus beetles in mesocosm; 9- Notonecta: number of Notonecta in mesocosm; 10- Aeshna: was Aeshna present in the community? Yes or No for predator treatments, Control if no predator (or Aeshna, by extension); 11-H: Shannon's H calculation for predator community evenness (99 entered for control to easily subset predator only treatments); 12- Cslong: sex-standardized adult longevity (see Meadows et al. Supp Info for calculation); 13- Winglength: adult winglength (in mm)

Title behavior experiment
Downloaded 2 times
Description These data were collected from the behavior experiment described in Meadows et al. 2017. Column descriptions are as follows: 1- Treatment: indicates predator community composition; 2- ID: separates replicates of treatments; 3- Obs: observation period/replicate; 4- Larvae: the number of larvae remaining at each observation period; 5- Diving: the proportion of larvae observed diving at least once during the observation period; 6- Aeshna: was Aeshna present in the community (Y= yes, N= no, C= control (no predators present); 7- ActiveP: 1 if a mesopredator was active during the observation period, 0 otherwise.
