Sex and time specific effects of ocean warming on reproductive and hatchling traits in a coral reef damselfish (Acanthochromis polyacanthus)

The datasets contain reproductive and hatchling characteristics from an experimental population of the coral reef fish, Acanthochromis polyacanthus. The aim of the experiment was to expose male and/or female fish to simulated ocean warming at different life-stages to determine the effects on their reproduction and newly hatched offspring.

      The datasets accompany the manuscript:

      Spinks, R.K., Bonzi, L.C., Ravasi, T., Munday, P.L., and Donelson, J.M. (2020). Sex and time specific effects of ocean warming on reproduction and offspring quality. Evolutionary Applications. 

      The full methodologies are included in the manuscript. The supplementary material includes the R script used for analyses.

      The 'Individual traits' dataset contains the following reproductive and offspring traits with the column headers in brackets: breeding probability (Bred), egg area in mm2 (Egg Area), embryonic mortality (Embryo Mortality), hatch weight in mg (Hatch W), hatch standard length in mm (Hatch SL), and hatch yolk area mm2 (Hatch YA).

      The 'Clutch traits' dataset contains the following reproductive and offspring traits with the column headers in brackets: clutch size (Clutch Size), total eggs per pair (Total Eggs), and embryonic duration in days (Embryo Duration).

      F1 Treatment codes represent

      • CCC: Male developed in control temperature, female developed in control temperature, reproduction in control temperature
      • CHC: Male developed in control temperature, female developed in high temperature, reproduction in control temperature
      • HCC: Male developed in high temperature, female developed in control temperature, reproduction in control temperature
      • HHC: Male developed in high temperature, female developed in high temperature, reproduction in control temperature
      • CCH: Male developed in control temperature, female developed in control temperature, reproduction in high temperature
      • CHH: Male developed in control temperature, female developed in high temperature, reproduction in high temperature
      • HCH: Male developed in high temperature, female developed in control temperature, reproduction in high temperature
      • HHH: Male developed in high temperature, female developed in high temperature, reproduction in high temperature
