Data from: Seasonality maintains alternative life history phenotypes

Sami Mikael Kivelä, Panu Välimäki & Karl Gotthard
Many organisms express discrete alternative phenotypes (polyphenisms) in relation to predictable environmental variation. However, the evolution of alternative life history phenotypes remains poorly understood. Here, we analyze the evolution of alternative life histories in seasonal environments by using temperate insects as a model system. Temperate insects express alternative developmental pathways of diapause and direct development, the induction of a certain pathway affecting fitness through its life history correlates. We develop a methodologically novel and holistic...
