Data from: The effectiveness and costs of pathogen resistance strategies in a perennial plant

Hanna Susi & Anna-Liisa Laine
Plants have evolved different strategies to resist pathogens, but little is known about how effective, stable and costly these mechanisms are in perennial plants across multiple growing seasons. We conducted a laboratory experiment to assess resistance variation in Plantago lanceolata against the powdery mildew-causing fungus Podosphaera plantaginis and to measure possible trade-offs between the different resistance strategies. To test stability and costs of resistance, we established common garden populations of plants possessing three different resistance...
