Data from: Adding biotic complexity alters the metabolic benefits of mutualism

William R. Harcombe, Alex Betts, Jason W. Shapiro & Christopher J. Marx
Mutualism is ubiquitous in nature and plays an integral role in most communities. To predict the eco-evolutionary dynamics of mutualism it is critical to extend classic pair-wise analysis to include additional species. We investigated the effect of adding a third species to a pair-wise mutualism in a spatially structured environment. We tested the hypotheses that selection for costly excretions in a focal population (i) decreases when an exploiter is added (ii) increases when a third...
