Title Experiment 1: Parental care and the relationship between larval density and average larval mass
Downloaded 11 times
Description This file contains data from Experiment 1: Parental care and the relationship between larval density and average larval mass. The columns are as follow: 1. care: Full = full parental care, No Care = no post-hatching care. 2. reduced: whether the brood was experimentally reduced, 0 = no, 1 = yes. 3. brood_mass: the total mass of the entire brood at dispersal in grams. 4. carc_wt: the mass of the breeding carcass in grams. 5. no_larvae: the number of larvae at dispersal. 6. density: the number of larvae at dispersal divided by the mass of the breeding carcass. 6. avg_larval_mass: the average mass of larvae at dispersal (brood_mass / no_larvae).

Title Experiment 2: The effect of larval density on the ability of larvae to enter the carcass and carcass decomposition
Downloaded 5 times
Description These data are form experiment 2: The effect of larval density on the ability of larvae to enter the carcass and carcass decomposition. The columns are as follow: 1. pair: a unique identifier for the breeding pair. 2. carc_wt: the mass of the breeding carcass in grams. 3. manipulated_brood_size: the experimentally manipulated number of larvae on the carcass. 4. density: the density of larvae on the breeding carcass at manipulation (manipulated_brood_size / carc_wt). 5. hole_at_manipulation: whether larvae were feeding within the carcass at the time of brood manipulation, 0 = no, 1 = yes. 6. in_carcass: whether larvae were feeding within the carcass 90 hours after pairing, 0 = no, 1 = yes. 7. mold_at_90_hrs: whether there was mold growing in the carcass 90 hours after pairing, 0 = no, 1 = yes. 8. mold_at_114_hours: whether there was mold growing in the carcass 114 hours after pairing, 0 = no, 1 = yes.

Title Experiment 2: The relationship between larval density and average larval mass at 120 hours after paring.
Downloaded 7 times
Description These data are from pairs in experiment 2 that had larvae 120 hours after pairing. The columns are as follow: 1. pair: a unique identifier for each breeding pair. 2. manipulated_brood_size: the experimentally manipulated number of larvae on the breeding carcass. 3. carc_wt: the mass of the breeding carcass in grams. 4. feeding_inside: whether larvae were feeding in the carcass 120 hours after pairing, 0 = no, 1 = yes. 5. brood_size_at_120_hours: the number of larvae on the breeding carcass 120 hours after pairing. 6. brood_mass: the total mass of the brood in grams at 120 hours. 7. average_larval_mass: the average mass of larvae on the breeding carcass 120 hours after pairing (brood_mass / brood_size_at_120_hours.
