Data from: Evidence of concurrent local adaptation and high phenotypic plasticity in a polar microeukaryote

Karin Rengefors, Ramiro Logares, Johanna Laybourn-Parry & Rebecca J. Gast
Here we investigated whether there is evidence of local adaptation in strains of an ancestrally marine dinoflagellate to the lacustrine environment they now inhabit (optimal genotypes) and/or if they have evolved phenotypic plasticity (a range of phenotypes). Eleven strains of Polarella glacialis were isolated and cultured from three different environments: the polar seas, a hyposaline and a hypersaline Antarctic lake. Local adaptation was tested by comparing growth rates of lacustrine and marine strains at their...
