Description This data file has two tabs. The first tab contains data for the heritability of mite resistance (to the mite Macrocheles merdarius) in the dung beetle Onthophagus taurus. The first column has the individual ID, the second column the ID of their father, and the third column the ID of their mother, which together comprise the pedigree information for a nested paternal half-sib/full-sib breeding design. The number of mites found on males after experimental exposure and the pronotum width of each male (in mm) are also presented. The second tab has information from another experiment about mate choice and its relationship to a subsequent resistance to parasites (also under experimental exposure). This tab has information on male ID, their latency to court females (seconds between being exposed to a female and starting to court), number of courting bouts (see MS), mating success (1 when mated, 0 when failed to mate), mating latency (seconds between starting to court and mating), and mating duration (in seconds). This information can be used to calculate courtship rate (see MS). Finally, this tab also contains information on the number of mites found on males after the subsequent (after the mate choice trial) experimental exposure to these parasites, and the identity of the block.
