Data from: Evolution of invasiveness by genetic accommodation

Dan G. Bock, Michael B. Kantar, Celine Caseys, Remi Matthey-Doret & Loren H. Rieseberg
Invasion success of species introduced to novel environments may be facilitated by adaptive evolution and by phenotypic plasticity. Here we investigate the independent and joint contribution of both mechanisms as drivers of invasiveness in the perennial sunflower Helianthus tuberosus. We show that invasive genotypes have multiple origins, and that invasive spread was facilitated by the repeated evolution of extreme values in a single trait, clonality. In line with genetic accommodation theory, we establish that this...
