Data from: Juvenile social experience generates differences in behavioral variation but not averages

Nicholas DiRienzo, J. Chadwick Johnson & Anna Dornhaus
Developmental plasticity is known to influence the mean behavioral phenotype of a population. Yet, studies on how developmental plasticity shapes patterns of variation within populations are comparatively rare and often focus on a subset of developmental cues (e.g. nutrition). One potentially important but understudied developmental experience is social experience, as it is explicitly hypothesized to increase variation among individuals as a way to promote ‘social niches.’ To test this we exposed juvenile black widow spiders...
