Data of experiment 1 in Anthes et al. (2014) to measure the depletion rate of sperms in a hermaphrodite sea slug.
A data frame with 264 observations on the following 6 variables.
the id of the focal sperm donor
the number of the mating in the sequences of matings
number of sperms transferred to the receiver
mean of the weight of the two slugs of the pair
a relative size measurement of the donor, see Anthes et al. (2014)
duration of mating in decimal minutes
Anthes N, Werminghausen J, Lange R (2014) Large donors transfer more sperm, but depletion is faster in a promiscuous hermaphrodite. Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology 68: 477-483.
