Data from: Successful despite poor flight performance: range expansion is associated with enhanced exploratory behaviour and fast development

Elisabeth Reim, Simone Blesinger, Lisa Förster & Klaus Fischer
Anthropogenic interference forces species to respond to changing environmental conditions. One possible response is dispersal and concomitant range shifts, allowing individuals to escape unfavourable conditions or to track the shifting climate niche. Range expansions depend on both dispersal capacity and the ability to establish populations beyond the former range. We here compare well-established core populations with recently established edge populations in the currently northward expanding butterfly Lycaena tityrus. Edge populations were characterized by shorter development...
