Data from: Cell size, photosynthesis and the package effect: an artificial selection approach

Martino E. Malerba, Maria M. Palacios, Yussi M. Palacios Delgado, John Beardall & Dustin J. Marshall
Cell size correlates with most traits among phytoplankton species. Theory predicts that larger cells should show poorer photosynthetic performance, perhaps due to reduced intracellular self‐shading (i.e. package effect). Yet current theory relies heavily on interspecific correlational approaches and causal relationships between size and photosynthetic machinery have remained untested. As a more direct test, we applied 250 generations of artificial selection (c. 20 months) to evolve the green microalga Dunaliella teriolecta (Chlorophyta) toward different mean cell...
