|Dataset link||Role of epigenetics in adaptive evolution of an asexual snail (Lake Lytle)|
To examine the association between this adaptive divergence and epigenetic differences, we sampled at least 30 individuals from a “river” site characterized by constantly fast water current speeds due to input from underground springs (Ritter Island, Snake River, ID) and from a “lake” site with no water current (Lake Lytle, Rockaway Beach, OR). Shell spire height and aperture length were measured as an index of adaptive foot size and shell shape differences. On these same samples, we dissected foot tissue from individuals for the analysis of epigenetic variation.
