Data from: Genetic differences and phenotypic plasticity in body size between high- and low-altitude populations of the ground beetle Carabus tosanus

Yuzo Tsuchiya, Yasuoki Takami, Yutaka Okuzaki & Teiji Sota
The body size of a univoltine carabid beetle Carabus tosanus on Shikoku Island, Japan, was clearly smaller in higher-altitude populations (subspecies), which possibly represents incipient speciation. To explore the determinants of altitudinal differences in body size in this species, we studied the degree of phenotypic plasticity by conducting rearing experiments at two constant temperatures, and examined genetic differences through interpopulation crosses. At 15°C, C. tosanus had a longer developmental period and a shorter adult body...
