Data from: Abiotic heterogeneity drives parasite local adaptation in coevolving bacteria and phages

Angus Buckling, Laura Lopez Pascua & Sylvain Gandon
Spatial abiotic heterogenity can result in divergent selection, hence might increase the magnitude of host-parasite local adaptation (the mean difference in fitness of sympatric versus allopatric host-parasite combinations). We explicitly tested this hypothesis by measuring local adapation in experimentally coevolved populations of bacteria and viruses evolved in the same or different nutrient media. Consistent with previous work, we found that mean levels of evolved phage infectivity and bacteria resistance varied with nutrient concentration, with maximal...
