Raw data for: Extreme climate shifts pest dominance hierarchy through thermal evolution and transgenerational plasticity

Liang Zhu, Ary Hoffmann, Shimin Li & Chunsen Ma
We conducted an 8-year field survey to link extreme high-temperature events to the shift in dominance hierarchy of two worldwide cereal aphid species (Rhopalosiphum padi and Sitobion avenae), which may respond rapidly through evolutionary or plastic responses to thermal extremes due to their short generation duration, clonal structure and high thermal sensitivity. To further understand the mechanism involved in this change in species’ dominance, we characterised aphid heat tolerance and demography of the 2 species...
