Data from: The chicken or the egg? Adaptation to desiccation and salinity tolerance in a lineage of water beetles

Susana Pallarés, Paula Arribas, David T. Bilton, Andrés Millán, Josefa Velasco & Ignacio Ribera
Transitions from fresh to saline habitats are restricted to a handful of insect lineages, as the colonization of saline waters requires specialized mechanisms to deal with osmotic stress. Previous studies have suggested that tolerance to salinity and desiccation could be mechanistically and evolutionarily linked, but the temporal sequence of these adaptations is not well established for individual lineages. We combined molecular, physiological and ecological data to explore the evolution of desiccation resistance, hyporegulation ability (i.e.,...
