Data from: Plastic and evolutionary responses of cell size and number to larval malnutrition in Drosophila melanogaster

Roshan K Vijendravarma, Sunitha Narasimha & Tadeusz J Kawecki
Both development and evolution under chronic malnutrition lead to reduced adult size in Drosophila. We studied the contribution of changes in size vs. number of epidermal cells to plastic and evolutionary reduction of wing size in response to poor larval food. We used flies from six populations selected for tolerance to larval malnutrition and from six unselected control populations, raised either under standard conditions or under larval malnutrition. In the control populations, phenotypic plasticity of...
