We present an ALMA 887µm survey of the disk population around objects from ∼2 to 0.03M in the nearby ∼2Myr old Chamaeleon I star-forming region. We detect thermal dust emission from 66 out of 93 disks, spatially resolve 34 of them, and identify two disks with large dust cavities of about 45 au in radius. Assuming isothermal and optically thin emission, we convert the 887µm flux densities into dust disk masses, hereafter Mdust. We find that the Mdust-M* relation is steeper than linear and of the form Mdust∝(M*)1.3-1.9, where the range in the power-law index reflects two extremes of the possible relation between the average dust temperature and stellar luminosity. By reanalyzing all millimeter data available for nearby regions in a self-consistent way, we show that the 1-3 Myr old regions of Taurus, Lupus, and Chamaeleon I share the same Mdust-M* relation, while the 10 Myr old Upper Sco association has a steeper relation. Theoretical models of grain growth, drift, and fragmentation reproduce this trend and suggest that disks are in the fragmentation-limited regime. In this regime millimeter grains will be located closer in around lower-mass stars, a prediction that can be tested with deeper and higher spatial resolution ALMA observations. Description: Our observations were carried out as part of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) Cycle 2 campaign on 2014 May 1-3 UTC (54 sources) and on 2015 May 18-19 UTC (39 sources). The 2014 observations included all stars with spectral type from Luhman (; 2007, J/ApJS/173/104) equal to or earlier than M3 (hot sample), while in 2015 we observed the remaining later spectral type sources (cool sample). All observations were obtained in Band 7 (275-373GHz) with a spatial resolution of 0.7"x0.5". File Summary:

Integrated flux density measured on image within the 3σ contour. * = Sources that have additional mm detections in their exposures: J11044258-7741571 (ISO 52) at ∼6", coordinates (11:04:40.59;-77:41:56.9); J11082238-7730277 (ISO 143) at ∼10", coordinates (11:08:21.11;-77:30:18.9); and J11123092-7644241 (T53) at ∼11", coordinates (11:12:27.7;-76:44:22.3). In the first two cases there is no object in the SIMBAD Astronomical Database associated with the mm emission. In the case of T53 we detect the disk from the companion T52. Fluxes from these additional detections are not reported in the table. Note (5): Sources with a FWHM reported in the last column of the table are those that were fitted with an elliptical gaussian. Undetected sources have values of 0.0 in all columns following the Fnu columns. For these sources flux densities are measured assuming a point source model and fixed DelRA and DelDE to the median values of the detected sources.
