Data from: Developmental lead exposure has mixed effects on butterfly cognitive processes

Kinsey H. Philips, Megan E. Kobiela & Emilie C. Snell-Rood
While the effects of lead pollution have been well studied in vertebrates, it is unclear to what extent lead may negatively affect insect cognition. Lead pollution in soils can elevate lead in plant tissues, suggesting it could negatively affect neural development of insect herbivores. We used the cabbage white butterfly (Pieris rapae) as a model system to study the effect of lead pollution on insect cognitive processes, which play an important role in how insects...
