Data from: Quantitative genetics of migration syndromes: a study of two barn swallow populations

Celine Teplitsky, Nissrine G Mouawad, Javier Balbontín, Florentino De Lope & Anders P Møller
Migration is a complex trait although little is known about genetic correlations between traits involved in such migration syndromes. To assess migratory responses to climate change, we need information on genetic constraints on evolutionary potential of arrival dates in migratory birds. Using two long term data sets on barn swallows Hirundo rustica (from Spain and Denmark), we show for the first time in wild populations that spring arrival dates are phenotypically and genetically correlated with...
