Data from: Local adaptation and rapid evolution of aphids in response to genetic interactions with their cottonwood hosts

David Smith, Stuart Wooley, Eric Lonsdorf, Sarah Brown, Thomas Whitham, Stephen Shuster & Richard Lindroth
Several studies have demonstrated the ecological consequences of genetic variation within a single plant species. For example, these studies show that individual plant genotypes support unique composition of the plants’ associated arthropod community. By contrast, fewer studies have explored how plant genetic variation may influence evolutionary dynamics in the plant’s associated species. Here, we examine how aphids respond evolutionarily to genetic variation in their host plant. We conducted two experiments to examine local adaptation and...
