Effective dispersal and genetic structure of a small mammal in an intensively managed agricultural landscape: is there any barrier to movement?
Context: Dispersal and gene flow are key processes for the persistence of populations through the maintenance of large effective sizes and recolonization of empty patches. Therefore, assessing how dispersal is modulated ...
Diversity indices and results of demographic analyses in Monttea aphylla cpDNA lineages performed derived from spatial analysis of Geneland
(Plos One, 2017-06-05)
Polymorphic sites (S), number of haplotypes (K), nucleotide diversity (π), haplotype diversity (h), mean number of pairwise differences (p), Tajima’s D, Fu’s FS and sum of squared deviations (SSD).
The search for Pleiades in trait constellations: functional integration and phenotypic selection in the complex flowers of Morrenia brachystephana (Apocynaceae)
Pollinator-mediated natural selection on single traits, such as corolla tube or spur length, has been well documented. However, flower phenotypes are usually complex, and selection is expected to act on several traits that ...
Pericarpial nectary-visiting ants do not provide fruit protection against pre-dispersal seed predators regardless of ant species composition and resource availability
(Plos One, 2017-11-10)
This dataset describes the number of flowers, fruits and seed set of Tocoyena formosa in branches exposed (control) and isolated (ant exclusion) from ants, as well as the visiting ants and seed predators reared from fruits ...
Interspecific social interactions shape public goods production in natural microbial communities
The R code (Hesse_etal.R) descibes step by step how metal polution affects the ecology and evolution of a community-wide public good – the production of metal-detoxifying siderophores. This code accompanies the manuscript ...
Four behavioral tests associated with fear and aggressiveness in Japanese quail
Japanese quail were evaluated in 4 tests, performed aproximately 30 days appart from each other. Partial mechanical restraint test , Social Interaction, Tonic Inmovility and Welfare assesment. Partial mechanical restraint ...
Travelling to the south: Phylogeographic spatial diffusion model in Monttea aphylla (Plantaginaceae), an endemic plant of the Monte Desert
(Plos One, 2017)
Effects of Pleistocene climatic oscillations on plant phylogeographic patterns are relatively well studied in forest, savanna and grassland biomes, but such impacts remain less explored on desert regions of the world, ...
Estrategias de uso de recursos y tolerancia a la remoción de biomasa aérea en plantas nativas del centro-oeste de Argentina
La herbivoría es una fuerza estructuradora fundamental en los ecosistemas terrestres, que permite el ingreso de la productividad primaria a la red trófica. Además, mediante diferentes mecanismos, modula la productividad ...
Forest cover and proximity decrease herbivory and increase crop yield via enhanced natural enemies in soybean fieldsLa cobertura forestal y la proximidad disminuyen la herbivoría y aumentan el rendimiento de los cultivos a través de enemigos naturales mejorados en los campos de soja.
Non-crop habitats are essential for sustaining biodiversity of beneficial arthropods in agricultural landscapes, which can increase ecosystem services provision and crop yield. However, their effects on specific crop systems ...
Supplementary material 2 from: Särkinen T, Poczai P, Barboza GE, van der Weerden GM, Baden M, Knapp S (2018) A revision of the Old World Black Nightshades (Morelloid clade of Solanum L., Solanaceae). PhytoKeys 106: 1-223.
The Morelloid clade, also known as the black nightshades or “Maurella” (Morella), is one of the 10 major clades within Solanum L. The pantropical clade consists of 75 currently recognised non-spiny herbaceous and suffrutescent ...
