Data from: Evolution on the move: specialization on widespread resources associated with rapid range expansion in response to climate change

Jon R. Bridle, James Buckley, Edward J. Bodsworth & Chris D. Thomas
Generalist species and phenotypes are expected to perform best under rapid environmental change. In contrast to this view that generalists will inherit the Earth, we find that increased specialisation on a single host plant is associated with the recent climate-driven range expansion of the UK Brown Argus butterfly. Field assays of female host plant preference across the UK reveal a diversity of adaptations to host plants in long-established parts of the range, whereas butterflies in...
