Title Fruit, seed predator, and parasitoid abundance
Downloaded 6 times
Description Data were collected in the field from a common garden experiment conducted in 2011, near the town of Molas (Yucatan, México). These data include the number of fruits, seed predators, and parasitoids recorded per plant, used to analyze and describe insect functional responses. Abbreviated headlines are as follows (from left to right): plant maternal family ("genotype"), fertility treatment (NF = not fertilized, F = fertilized, "treatment"), individual plant sampled ("plant"), number of sampled fruits ("fruit#"), number of fruits with a seed predator or seed predator abundance ("seedpredator#"), and number of attacked fruits by the seed predator with a parasitoid or parasitoid abundance ("parasitoid#"). Data were collected over a two-month period (November-December) in 2011.

Title seedsrescued_fitness
Downloaded 16 times
Description Data were collected in the field from a common garden experiment conducted in 2011, near the town of Molas (Yucatan, México). These data include the number of fruits, seed predators, and seeds rescued by parasitoids from seed predator consumption, used to calculate relative fitness under scenarios of: one trophic level (potential seed number, i.e. fruit#*mean # of seeds per fruit), two trophic levels (potential seed # - seeds consumed by seed predators assuming no seed rescue [seed predator #*mean # of seeds per fruit]), and three trophic levels ([potential seed # - seeds consumed] + seeds rescued by parasitoids). Abbreviated headlines are as follows (from left to right): plant maternal family ("genotype"), fertility treatment (NF = not fertilized, F = fertilized, "treatment"), individual plant sampled ("plant"), number of recorded fruits ("fruit#"), number of fruits with a seed predator (i.e. seed predator abundance, "seedpredator#"), number of seeds consumed by seed predators assuming no seed rescue ("consumedseed#(no rescue)"), and the number of rescued seeds by parasitoids ("rescuedseed#"). Data were collected over a two-month period (November-December) in 2011.

Title Seeds per fruit per genotype
Downloaded 4 times
Description Data were collected in the field from a common garden experiment conducted in 2011, near the town of Molas (Yucatan, México). Data are the mean number of seeds per fruit for each of 14 maternal plant families, shown separately for each of two levels of soil fertilization. These means were used to calculate the potential number of seeds produced per plant (# of fruits recorded*mean # of seeds for the appropriate family-treatment combination). Abbreviated headlines are as follows (from left to right): plant maternal family ("genotype"), mean number of seeds per fruit in fertilized conditions ("#seedsperfruitF"), and mean number of seeds per fruit in unfertilized conditions ("seedsperfruitNF"). Data were collected over a two-month period (November-December) in 2011.
