TableĀ 2 Initial experimental composition of each community type

From: Demographic consequences of reproductive interference in multi-species communities

Phenotypes of C. elegans or C. briggsaea Frequency of wildtype (%) Frequency of C. nigoni (%)b Number of individuals in founding communityc
Wildtype hermaphrodites 100 0 50
None 0 100 100
Wildtype hermaphrodites 33 67 150
Vulvaless hermaphrodites 0 67 150
Feminized females and males 0 50 200
Wildtype and vulvaless hermaphrodites 50 0 100
Wildtype hermaphrodites and feminized females and males 33 0 150
  1. aEach of the seven community types were initiated for blocks with C. elegans or with C. briggsae
  2. bC. nigoni were excluded from three community types that contained only wildtype hermaphrodites or mixtures of conspecific genotypes with contrasting reproductive modes
  3. cInitial population sizes were set to equalize the number of egg-laying individuals (females or hermaphrodites) to 50 for each species within each community type assuming 1:1 sex ratio for genotypes with males and females
