Abstract

This Dataset supports the article "Inbreeding in a dioecious plant has sex- and population origin-specific effects on its interactions with pollinators", which is published in eLife. The study addresses the combined effects of inbreeding, plant sex and plant population origin on interactions among plants and their specialised pollinators. It contains data on various floral traits (spatial flower traits, flower colour traits, floral scent traits (floral VOC), floral rewards) as well as pollinator visitation rates. The data were assessed in inbred and outbred, male and female, North American and European individuals of Silene latifolia (White Campion). A detailed description of the data acquisition process can be found in the published manuscript. An R-script containing all statistical analyses that have been implemented with these data is also provided.

Methods

A detailed description of the data acquisition process can be found in the manuscript "Inbreeding in a dioecious plant has sex- and population origin-specific effects on its interactions with pollinators", which is published in eLife.

Usage Notes

Below you find a list of datasets with a summary of variable names and a brief description of the data:

All datasets:

  • pop: population ID
  • mo: ID maternal family in P-generation
  • fa: ID paternal family in P-generation
  • sex: plant sex (f=female, m=male)
  • btmt: breeding treatment (au=outbred, in=inbred)
  • range: geographic population origin (eu=Europe, us=North America)
  • N: latitudinal origin population
  • N_sc: latitudinal origin population centered and scaled
  • age: plant age (d)
  • age_sc: plant age (d) centered and scaled

Dataset "spatial_i": Spatial flower traits

  • height: height of the synflorescence above ground (cm)
  • noflo: number of open flowers per individual

Dataset "spatial_ii": Spatial flower traits

  • area: petal area (cm²)
  • eggarea: corolla expansion, i.e., surface area of smallest possible circle drawn around all five petals (cm²)

Dataset "colour": Flower color traits

  • uv: UV-light reflectance of flower (% of incoming light)
  • bl: blue light reflectance of flower (% of incoming light)
  • gr: green light reflectance of flower (% of incoming light)

Dataset "VOCs": Floral volatile organic compounds

  • Hb: Shannon diversity of floral VOC
  • Cx: Intensity of volatile organic compound

Dataset "rewards": Rewarding floral traits

  • mass: total amount of sugar excreted with nectar (µg)

Dataset "polli": Pollinator visitation rates

  • trial: observation trial ID
  • plot: plot ID
  • no_vis_m: number of plant visits, i.e., how often is a plant individual approached by a pollinator
  • nfvpv_m: number of flowers approached during a visit, i.e, how many flowers were visited before the pollinator left the plant

R-script: "analyses"

This file contains the script for all statistical analyses as well as the production of all manuscript-related graphs.
