Data from: Ecological convergence of secondary phytochemicals along elevational gradients

Sergio Rasmann, Moe Bakhtiari, Emmanuel Defossez & Gaetan Glauser
Biologists still strive to identify the ecological and evolutionary drivers of phytochemical variation that mediate biotic interactions. We hypothesized that plant species growing at sites characterized by high herbivore pressure would converge to produce highly toxic blends of secondary metabolites, independent of phylogenetic constraints. To address the role of shared evolutionary history and ecological niches in driving variation in plant phytochemistry, we combined targeted metabolomics with insect herbivore bioassays and with a set of growth-related...
