Data from: Interspecific competition counteracts negative effects of dispersal on adaptation of an arthropod herbivore to a new host

Adriana Alzate Vallejo, Karen Bisschop, Rampal S. Etienne, Dries Bonte & A. Alzate
Dispersal and competition have both been suggested to drive variation in adaptability to a new environment, either positively or negatively. A simultaneous experimental test of both mechanisms is however lacking. Here, we experimentally investigate how population dynamics and local adaptation to a new host plant in a model species, the two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae), are affected by dispersal from a stock population (no-adapted) and competition with an already adapted spider mite species (Tetranychus evansi)....
