Data from: The million-year wait for macroevolutionary bursts

Josef C Uyeda, Thomas F Hansen, Stevan J Arnold, Jason Pienaar, S. J. Arnold, J. Pienaar & T. F. Hansen
We lack a comprehensive understanding of evolutionary pattern and process because short-term and long-term data have rarely been combined into a single analytical framework. Here we test alternative models of phenotypic evolution using a dataset of unprecedented size and temporal span (nearly 8,000 data points). The data are body-size measurements taken from historical studies, the fossil record, and among-species comparative data representing mammals, squamates, and birds. By analyzing this unusually large dataset, we identify stochastic...

Data from: Microsatellite primers for the Pacific Northwest endemic conifer Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (Cupressaceae)

Tara N. Jennings, Brian J. Knaus, Scott Kolpak & Richard Cronn
Microsatellite primers were developed for the Pacific Northwest conifer, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (A. Murray) Parl. (Cupressaceae), to enhance efficiencies in disease-resistance breeding and germplasm screening for gene conservation of this rare species. Using multiplexed massively parallel Illumina sequencing, we identified over 300,000 microsatellite-containing sequences from 2 million paired-end microreads. After stringent filtering and primer evaluation, we selected 11 primer pairs and used these to screen variation in 4 populations of C. lawsoniana. Loci show between three...
