Title Kurnath et al R script expt 1
Downloaded 18 times
Description Code written in R to analyse data from the first experiment, determining the maximum dose of creosote resin in woodrats at two ambient temperatures. Specifically, the maximum dose for each individual was compared across temperatures with an ANOVA. Intake data was log transformed, averaged across all days in the trial per individual, and then ANOVAs were run with Tukey's post-hoc tests to determine the effect of temperature.

Title Kurnath et al R script expt 2
Downloaded 3 times
Description Code written in R to analyze data from the second experiment in the study, investigating the effect of temperature on the ability of woodrats to persist in a feeding trial while ingesting the same daily dose of creosote resin (ie, 0.36 g resin/day). There are two main parts to the code. First, we analyzed food intake and body mass data from animals at 25 and 29 degC, to determine if animals had similar energetic costs at these temperatures. Data was analyzed with ANOVAs. Second, we analyzed survival and intake (food and resin) from animals at three temperatures. Survival data was analyzed with a Kaplan-Meier test, and intake data was analyzed with ANOVAs and Tukey's post-doc tests.

Title Daily Intake Data from Maximum Dose Trial
Downloaded 10 times
Description Data spreadsheet analyzed by "Kurnath et al Experiment 1" code in R. Each row represents one day of one animal in the feeding trial; there were 16 animals in the trial that lasted 21 days. Columns represent treatment groups (temperature, cool or warm), days in the trial, dietary concentration of creosote resin presented to the animals, body mass, food intake, creosote resin intake, and water intake of the animals during this experiment.
