Title Dryad_Species_data
Downloaded 136 times
Description The dataset gives all data for the analysis on the use of plants as larval houseplants and nectarine plants by adult Lepidoptera. It includes all 927 Lepidopteran species for which information on the use of larval foodplants was available from Ebert 2005. All variables are listed and explained. "NA" is used to record missing data. The data were collected and compiled by Florian Altermatt (FA) and Ian S. Pearse (IP). Please refer to the corresponding article in "The American Naturalist" titled "Similarity and specialization of the larval versus adult diet of European butterflies and moths" by these two authors as well as all original data-sources when using these data. FA is at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag), Department of Aquatic Ecology, Überlandstrasse 133, CH-8600 Dübendorf, Switzerland.

Title Dryad_Family_data
Downloaded 143 times
Description The table gives summary values on the number of plant species used as food plants by Lepidoptera larvae and as nectaring plants by the adults (mean number of plants used by a species, sd = standard deviation, min = minimum, max = maximum number), given separately for each Lepidoptera family. NA = not applicable. The data were collected and compiled by Florian Altermatt (FA) and Ian S. Pearse (IP). Please refer to the corresponding article in "The American Naturalist" titled "Similarity and specialization of the larval versus adult diet of European butterflies and moths" by these two authors as well as all original data-sources when using these data.

Description The table gives summary values on the number of plant species used as food plants by Lepidoptera larvae and as nectaring plants by the adults (mean, sd = standard deviation, min = minimum, max = maximum number), given separately for each Lepidoptera subfamily. NA = not applicable. The data were collected and compiled by Florian Altermatt (FA) and Ian S. Pearse (IP).

Title Dryad_tree_Lepidoptera
Downloaded 68 times
Description The file gives the directory tree file compiled from various sources (see article by Altermatt and Pearse and corresponding appendix). This phylogenetic tree covers all species (to the subfamily level) used in the article. The file is in "Newick format" and can be opened with the statistic software R. The data were collected and compiled by Florian Altermatt (FA) and Ian S. Pearse (IP).
