Raw data files for the dose experiment, resource weight experiment, and mite reproduction experiment. Burying beetles with Poecilochirus carabi mites (dose, resource value) or only mites (mite reproduction experiments) were set up for reproduction with different mite doses (mite_dose) and carrion of different weight (carcass_weight; only resource value experiment). Readout variables: mite_offspring: number of mite offspring individuals that developed (deuteronymphs) beetle_offpring_no: number of beetle offspring (pupae) beetle_brood_weight_µg: sum of the weight of all beetle pupae in µg
