Data from: Towards an evolutionary understanding of questing behaviour in the tick Ixodes ricinus

Joseph L. Tomkins, Jennifer Aungier, Wade N. Hazel & Lucy Gilbert
The tick Ixodes ricinus finds its hosts by climbing vegetation and adopting a sit-and-wait tactic. This “questing” behaviour is known to be temperature-dependent, such that questing increases with temperature up to a point where the vapor pressure deficit (drying effect) forces ticks down to rehydrate in the soil or mat layer. Little if any attention has been paid to understanding the questing of ticks from an evolutionary perspective. Here we ask whether populations from colder...
