Data from: Life history as a constraint on plasticity: developmental timing is correlated with phenotypic variation in birds

Emilie C. Snell-Rood, Eli M. Swanson & Rebecca L. Young
Understanding why organisms vary in developmental plasticity has implications for predicting population responses to changing environments and the maintenance of intraspecific variation. The epiphenotype hypothesis posits that the timing of development can constrain plasticity—the earlier alternate phenotypes begin to develop, the greater the difference that can result amongst the final traits. This research extends this idea by considering how life history timing shapes the opportunity for the environment to influence trait development. We test the...
