Data from: Do mites evolving in alternating host plants adapt to host switch?

Sara Magalhães, Aurelie Cailleau, Elodie Blanchet & Isabelle Olivieri
A fluctuating environment may be perceived as a composition of different environments, or as an environment per se, in which it is the fluctuation itself that poses a selection pressure. If so, then organisms may adapt to this alternation. We tested this using experimental populations of spider mites that have been evolving for 45 generations in a homogeneous environment (pepper or tomato plants), or in a heterogeneous environment composed of an alternation of these two...
