Data from: Basal cold but not heat tolerance constrains plasticity among Drosophila species (Diptera: Drosophilidae)

Casper Nyamukondiwa, John S Terblanche, Katie E Marshall & Brent J Sinclair
Thermal tolerance and its plasticity are important for understanding ectotherm responses to climate change. However, it is unclear whether plasticity is traded off at the expense of basal thermal tolerance and if plasticity is subject to phylogenetic constraints. Here, we investigated associations between basal thermal tolerance and acute plasticity thereof in laboratory-reared adult males of eighteen Drosophila species at low and high temperatures. We determined the high and low temperatures where 90 % of flies...
