A dataset of caterpillar performance in an experiment manipulating mean and variance of xanthotoxin levels in diet. Caterpillar growth, development time, and egg production of mated females is presented. Data were collected by all authors in 2017 in a laboratory at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO.
The koa moth (Scotorythra paludicola) is a species of moth that has been reported to irrupt in abundance on occasion over the past 100 years, sometimes defoliating its host plant, koa (Acacia koa), during the event. This data release includes metadata and tabular data that document rate at which koa moth caterpillars were attacked and killed by parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera) during an outbreak of the koa moth that resulted in widespread defoliation of koa across much of Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge during 2013-2014. The data set documents the fate of caterpillars collected from koa foliage during the outbreak and reared in the lab, as well as the species identification of parasitoid wasps that emerged...
Arthropods are important prey for most forest birds in Hawaii. The relative abundance of arthropods on koa (Acacia koa) changed significantly during an outbreak of the koa moth (Scotorythra paludicola) that occurred across much of Hawaii Island during 2013-2014. The outbreak resulted in large tracts of koa forest becoming defoliated by large numbers of koa moth caterpillars. This data release includes metadata and tabular data that documents how bird diets changed at Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge during the outbreak. The data set documents numbers of koa moth caterpillars and other arthropod prey consumed by forest birds prior to, and during the koa moth outbreak. Diets were reconstructed by identifying...
