Data from: Crossing fitness valleys: empirical estimation of adaptive landscape associated with polymorphic mimicry

Mónica Arias, Yann Le Poul, Mathieu Chouteau, Romain Boisseau, Neil Rosser, Marc Théry & Violaine Llaurens
Characterising the fitness landscapes associated with polymorphic adaptive traits enables the investigation of the mechanisms allowing transitions between fitness peaks. Here, we explore how natural selection can promote genetic mechanisms preventing heterozygous phenotypes from falling into non-adaptive valleys. Polymorphic mimicry is an ideal system to investigate such fitness landscapes, because the direction of selection acting on complex mimetic colour patterns can be predicted by the local mimetic community composition. Using more than 5,000 artificial butterflies...
