Alternative developmental and transcriptomic responses to host plant water limitation in a butterfly metapopulation

Aapo Kahilainen, Vicencio Oostra, Panu Somervuo, Guillaume Minard & Marjo Saastamoinen
The dataset is from a study examining the effects of host plant water stress on the developmental and transcriptomic responses of its specialist Lepidopteran herbivore. The study combines host plant metabolic profiling with development assays and full-transcriptome sequencing of herbivore larvae. First, we profiled metabolic differences between well-watered and water-limited ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata) using proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-NMR). Second, we tested how performance of developing Glanville fritillary (Melitaea cinxia) larvae was affected...
