Title Food discovery & mean forager traffic on paired control & host paths
Downloaded 24 times
Description Raw data for paired trail-following experiments with the ant Cephalotes specularis in the laboratory. Data are given for 3 colonies (a, b, c). Ten paired path trials were conducted for each species (1-10 in "trial" column). Within each trial, a control path was paired with a path that had been previously used by host ant species Crematogaster ampla ("control" or "host" in the "path" column). Food discovery time ("discovery_time_s") is given in seconds, and mean forager traffic over the 25 minute trial ("mean_traffic_ants") is given in number of ants.

Downloaded 13 times
Description Raw data for paired trail-following experiments with the ant Cephalotes specularis in the laboratory. Data are given for 3 colonies (a, b, c). Ten paired path trials were conducted for each species (1-10 in "trial" column). Within each trial, a path previously used by the focal C. specularis colony was paired with a path that had been previously used by host ant species Crematogaster ampla ("parasite" or "host" in the "path" column). Food discovery time ("discovery_time_s") is given in seconds, and mean forager traffic over the 25 minute trial ("mean_traffic_ants") is given in number of ants.
