Title Meta-analysis from articles reporting phenotypic plasticity between 1987 and 2011
Downloaded 3 times
Description Data clean and ordered including all the selected articles. We conducted a meta-analysis on studies reporting reaction norms in different trait types across environments and species. We performed this meta-analysis investigating 24 years of research literature on phenotypic plasticity. We selected papers employing the keywords “life history & morphology & plasticity” between 1991-2006 from all databases in Web of Knowledge (WoK-ISI) and between 2007-2011 from Web of Science (ISI). We set out with 583 papers in total, including a few studies known to us that met the criteria published between 1987 and 2011. From this initial set, we extracted data from 213 studies reporting reaction norms. Data extraction from each paper included information from all tables, text, and figures using the software Image J. Quantification of the reaction norms was achieved through the computation of the CV of the trait expression across environments. We computed 5,885 coefficients of variation including 211 species exposed to at least two and at most 11 environment levels reporting phenotypic plasticity.
