Description

For the file "Temno_Webers_Length_Measurements...", the variable "colonyID" denotes the specific identifier of each individual ant colony; the variable "individual" is an identifier for each specific individual within an ant colony; the variable "city" describes the city the ant was sourced from (Knx=Knoxville, TN USA; Cin=Cincinnati, OH USA; Cle=Cleveland, OH USA); the variable "habitat.designation" specifies whether an ant was sourced from an urban or rural population; the variable "treatment" denotes one of five temperature treatments that the ant was reared under; the variable "tt" stands for tolerance type, and describes whether an individual ant underwent upper (Max) or lower (Min) thermal tolerance testing; the variable "caste" denotes whether an ant was a worker, alate, or queen; the variable "measurer" specifies the individual who measured the ant for that row; the variable "box" specifies which storage box that specific ant came from; the variable "wl" stands for Weber's length measured in millimeters; the variable "ctmax" denotes the temperature in degrees Celsius that an ant reached its critical thermal maximum; the variable "ctmin" denotes the temperature in degrees Celsius that an ant reached its critical thermal minimum; the "notes" variable describes any notes of interest collected during the project. For the file "CGA_2016_demography", the variables "brood.initial" and "worker.initial" denote the number of brood and workers respectively per colony at the time of colony collection from the field. The variables "brood.post" and "workers.post" denote the number of brood and workers respectively per colony at the time of thermal tolerance testing.
