Data from: The more the merrier: conspecific density improves performance of gregarious larvae and reduces susceptibility to a pupal parasitoid

Elena Rosa, Saskya Van Nouhuys & Marjo Saastamoinen
Aggregation can confer advantages in animal foraging, defense and thermoregulation. There is a tight connection between the evolution of insect sociality and a highly effective immune system, presumably to inhibit rapid disease spread in a crowded environment. This connection is less evident for animals that spend only part of their life-cycle in a social environment, such as non-eusocial gregarious insects. Our aim was to elucidate the effects of group living by the gregarious larvae of...
