Data from: Bone-eating Osedax females and their 'harems' of dwarf males are recruited from a common larval pool

Robert C Vrijenhoek, Shannon B Johnson & Greg W Rouse
Extreme male dwarfism occurs in Osedax (Annelida: Siboglinidae), marine worms with sessile females that bore into submerged bones. Osedax are hypothesized to use environmental sex-determination (ESD), in which undifferentiated larvae that settle on bones develop as females, and subsequent larvae that settle on females transform into dwarf males. This study addresses several hypotheses regarding possible recruitment sources for the males: (1) common larval pool — males and females are sampled from a common pool of...
