This zipped folder contains the scripts and data used for the article BD Ohlinger, R Schürch, MR Silliman, TN Steele, & MJ Couvillon (2022) "Dance-communicated distances support nectar foraging as a supply-driven system", Biology Letters. Additionally, it contains a README file with descriptions of the files used for the analysis.
