Data from: Parallel molecular routes to cold adaptation in eight genera of New Zealand stick insects

Alice B. Dennis, Luke T. Dunning, Brent J. Sinclair & Thomas R. Buckley
The acquisition of physiological strategies to tolerate novel thermal conditions allows organisms to exploit new environments. As a result, thermal tolerance is a key determinant of the global distribution of biodiversity, yet the constraints on its evolution are not well understood. Here we investigate parallel evolution of cold tolerance in New Zealand stick insects, an endemic radiation containing three montane-occurring species. Using a phylogeny constructed from 274 orthologous genes, we show that stick insects have...
