Data from: Plasticity for desiccation tolerance across Drosophila species is affected by phylogeny and climate in complex ways

Vanessa Kellermann, Ary A. Hoffmann, Johannes Overgaard, Volker Loeschcke & Carla M. Sgró
Comparative analyses of ectotherm susceptibility to climate change often focus on thermal extremes, yet responses to aridity may be equally important. Here we focus on plasticity in desiccation resistance, a key trait shaping distributions of Drosophila species and other small ectotherms. We examined the extent to which 32 Drosophila species, varying in their distribution, could increase their desiccation resistance via phenotypic plasticity involving hardening, linking these responses to environment, phylogeny and basal resistance. We found...
