Data from: Induced defences alter the strength and direction of natural selection on reproductive traits in common milkweed

Ken A. Thompson, Kaitlin A. Cory & Marc T.J. Johnson
Evolutionary biologists have long sought to understand the ecological processes that generate plant reproductive diversity. Recent evidence indicates that constitutive antiherbivore defences can alter natural selection on reproductive traits, but it is unclear whether induced defences will have the same effect and whether reduced foliar damage in defended plants is the cause of this pattern. In a factorial field experiment using common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca L., we induced plant defences using jasmonic acid (JA) and...
