Data from: Field evidence for a rapid adaptive plastic response in morphology and growth of littoral and pelagic brook charr: a reciprocal transplant experiment

Marc Pépino, Pierre Magnan & Raphaël Proulx
1. Phenotypic plasticity, a process by which individuals modify their morphology, physiology, or behaviour in response to environmental changes, can be seen as the first step in adaptive evolution. Phenotypic plasticity is adaptive if two conditions are met: (i) the phenotype is associated with an environment (plastic response) and (ii) the phenotype–environment association increases individual fitness (adaptive response). 2. Using a reciprocal transplant experiment, we tested the hypothesis that functional morphological responses are correlated with...
