Ecological and evolutionary relative importance to total abundance and mean size changes of an artificial phytoplankton community in response to high CO2 after 80,186 and 288 days


This dataset includes information specific to the Eco-Evo assay applied to a long-term community selection experiment after 80,186, and 288 days. The community contained Emiliania huxleyi and Chaetoceros affinis (details about Species and genotypes used can be found in doi:10.1098/rsbl.2016.0774 ). The long-term community selection phase to ambient and high CO2 (400 and 1250ppm, respectively) started on the 10th of January 2017, details about the sorting phase in semi-continuous batch cycles can be found in doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.887780 . Here, the raw data from the subsequent Eco-Evo assay are presented, as well as the calculated relative importance of species and genotype sorting. The first eco-evo Assay (after 80 days) previously served to validate the new method ( and Abundance (column 8) of Time 80 (first 25 rows) and the calculated relative contribution to total changes of that timepoint (column 28- first 4 rows) are also included in the previous dataset ( Abundance-weighted means are calculated as the sum of each species' cell abundances multiplied with their respective trait, divided by the total cell abundance. Relative Importance of eco-evolutionary changes to the total change are calculated following the formula given in Hattich et al 2022 ( Nutrients were measured at the end of the assay when most communities have reached stationary phase with a Autoanalyzer (Thermo Scientific Flash).
