Abstract

This spreadsheet contains data used for three experiments involving gametophytes of the fern Ceratopteris richardii.  The first sheet contains the number of hermaphrodite and male gametophytes by treatment (volume of her1 spores added).  Derived variables, by treatment, include total gametophytes and percentage of hermaphrodites.  The second sheet contains the size of males at transfer and the number of days it took transferred males to convert to hermaphrodite.  Data are organized by age of males at transfer and volume of her1 spores with which males were grown. 

Methods

Male areas were determined using Infinity Analyze (Lumenera Corporation).

Counts of males and hermaphrodites were performed using a dissecting microscope.
