Data from: Unexpected consequences of a drier world: evidence that delay in late summer rains biases the population sex ratio of an insect

Raul Bonal, Marisa Hernández, Josep Maria Espelta, Alberto Muñoz & José M. Aparicio
The complexity of animal life histories makes it difficult to predict the consequences of climate change on their populations. In this paper, we show, for the first time, that longer summer drought episodes, such as those predicted for the dry Mediterranean region under climate change, may bias insect population sex ratio. Many Mediterranean organisms, like the weevil Curculio elephas, become active again after summer drought. This insect depends on late summer rainfall to soften the...
