Abstract

The files contained in this repository include data files and code used for analysis and figure creation in the article "Modularity and connectivity of nest structure scale with colony size". Data include csv files of edge-lists that are network representations of each nest, measures of chamber width for each nest, colony size data for each species, and ant length measures. These data are used in five sets of analyses, for which we include the R code: (1) Network Analysis, (2) Reference model generation and normalization, (3) Phylogenetically controlled analyses of network measures, (4) Chamber number and size measures and their phylogenetically controlled analyses, and (5) Phylogenetic signal for each trait. The relationships between files and descriptions of the variables are included in the README file. 

Methods

All data collection and data processing methods are outlined in detail in the article text.
