Data from: Offspring fitness varies with parental extra-pair status in song sparrows, Melospiza melodia

Rebecca J. Sardell, Peter Arcese, Jane M. Reid, P. Arcese, R. J. Sardell & J. M. Reid
Numerous studies have tested for indirect selection on female extra-pair reproduction (EPR) by quantifying whether extra-pair young (EPY) are fitter than their within-pair young (WPY) maternal half-siblings. In contrast, the hypothesis that offspring of EPY and WPY (rather than the EPY and WPY themselves) differ in fitness has not been tested, even though inter-generational effects of parental extra-pair status on offspring fitness could alter the magnitude and direction of indirect selection on EPR. We tested...

Data from: When should we expect early bursts of trait evolution in comparative data? Predictions from an evolutionary food web model

Travis Ingram, Luke J. Harmon & Jonathan B. Shurin
Conceptual models of adaptive radiation predict that competitive interactions among species will result in an early burst of speciation and trait evolution followed by a slowdown in diversification rates. Empirical studies often show early accumulation of lineages in phylogenetic trees, but usually fail to detect early bursts of phenotypic evolution. We use an evolutionary simulation model to assemble food webs through adaptive radiation, and examine patterns in the resulting phylogenetic trees and species' traits (body...

Data from: Mandated data archiving greatly improves access to research data

Timothy H. Vines, Rose L. Andrew, Dan G. Bock, Michelle T. Franklin, Kimberly J. Gilbert, Nolan C. Kane, Jean-S├ębastien Moore, Brook T. Moyers, S├ębastien Renaut, Diana J. Rennison, Thor Veen & Sam Yeaman
The data underlying scientific papers should be accessible to researchers both now and in the future, but how best can we ensure that these data are available? Here we examine the effectiveness of four approaches to data archiving: no stated archiving policy, recommending (but not requiring) archiving, and two versions of mandating data deposition at acceptance. We control for differences between data types by trying to obtain data from papers that use a single, widespread...
