Data from: Parental care masks a density-dependent shift from cooperation to competition among burying beetle larvae

Matthew Schrader, Benjamin J. M. Jarrett & Rebecca M. Kilner
Studies of siblings have focused mainly on their competitive interactions and to a lesser extent on their cooperation. However, competition and cooperation are at opposite ends on a continuum of possible interactions and the nature of these interactions may be flexible with ecological factors tipping the balance towards competition in some environments and cooperation in others. Here we show that the presence of parental care and the density of larvae on the breeding carcass change...
