Data from: Fitness costs of rapid cold-hardening in Ceratitis capitata

C Helene Basson, Casper Nyamukondiwa & John S Terblanche
Rapid cold-hardening (RCH) is a unique form of phenotypic plasticity which confers survival advantages at low temperature. The fitness costs of RCH are generally poorly elucidated and are important to understanding the evolution of plastic physiology. This study examined whether RCH responses, induced by ecologically relevant diel temperature fluctuations, carry metabolic, survival or fecundity costs. We predicted that potential costs in RCH would be manifested as differences in metabolic rate, fecundity or survival in flies...
