Fitness, mean colony size and colony size diversity evolved in parallel.

Among microcosm divergence depicted as the index of parallelism (Ix) for fitness, mean colony size and colony size diversity with confidence intervals. An index of parallelism larger than one indicates divergent evolution, while a value smaller than one indicates parallel evolution among different populations. The confidence interval was calculated by bootstrapping the data 106 times.
