Title Heliothis and Plant Damage
Downloaded 8 times
Description “Heliothis and Plant Damage” contains two sheets, one given the survivial and weight in mg of H. virescens on Bt an non-Bt cotton. The second the leaf damage in cm2 caused by H. virescens on both plant types. NOTE: The lower number of data entries in the plant damage sheet is caused by loss of raw data due to a camera malfunction.

Title Summary_Plants infested with Spodoptera
Downloaded 6 times
Description “Summary_Plants infested with Spodoptera” contains the data of the field experiment plants there were artifically infested with S. exigua. The File contain three sheets detailing the aphid population per plant and sample date, the damage of each plant per screening data and the final terpenoid concentration of each plant at the end of the experiment. NOTE: Plant identifiers are consistent for each data set. Missing entries are caused by problems during data collection, e.g. corrupted or blurred jpeg files during plant damage assessment.

Title Summary_Plants naturally infested
Downloaded 10 times
Description “Summary_Plants naturally infested” contains the data of the field experiment plants that were only exposed to natural infestation. Both files contain three sheets detailing the aphid population per plant and sample date, the damage of each plant per screening data and the final terpenoid concentration of each plant at the end of the experiment. NOTE: Plant identifiers are consistent for each data set. Missing entries are caused by problems during data collection, e.g. corrupted or blurred jpeg files during plant damage assessment.
