Description

This dataset contains all data required to reproduce the analyses conducted in Macgregor et al. (2018), using the R Notebook archived at doi: 10.5281/zenodo.1322712.

Specifically, the dataset contains details of pollen transport detected on two matched samples, each containing 311 moths of 41 species, using two methods: a traditional light microscopy approach and a novel DNA metabarcoding approach. Both raw and manually-curated versions of each dataset are archived for full clarity. The dataset additionally contains all metadata required to fully interpret these data, including the RGB tables used to prepare Fig 4 in Macgregor et al. (2018).
