Data from: Natural epigenetic variation contributes to heritable flowering divergence in a widespread asexual dandelion lineage

Rutger A. Wilschut, Carla Oplaat, L. Basten Snoek, Jan Kirschner & Koen J. F. Verhoeven
Epigenetic variation has been proposed to contribute to the success of asexual plants, either as a contributor to phenotypic plasticity or by enabling transient adaptation via selection on transgenerationally stable, but reversible, epialleles. While recent studies in experimental plant populations have shown the potential for epigenetic mechanisms to contribute to adaptive phenotypes, it remains unknown whether heritable variation in ecologically relevant traits is at least partially epigenetically determined in natural populations. Here, we tested the...
