Evolutionary processes in an undescribed eucalypt: implications for the translocation of a critically endangered species

Susan Rutherford, Trevor C Wilson, Jia-Yee Samantha Yap, Enhua Lee, Graeme Errington & Maurizio Rossetto
Background and Aims Knowledge of the evolutionary processes responsible for the distribution of threatened and highly localised species is important for their conservation. Population genomics can provide insights into evolutionary processes to inform management practices, including the translocation of threatened plant species. In this study, we focus on a critically endangered eucalypt, Eucalyptus sp. Cattai, which is restricted to a 40 km 2 area of Sydney, Australia and is threatened by increased urbanisation. Eucalyptus sp....

Data and code for: No evidence of metabolic costs following adaptive immune activation or reactivation in house sparrows

Bethany Hoye, William Buttemer, Terance O'Dwyer, Lee Astheimer & Kirk Klasing
We examined the energetic costs of immune activation by measuring both basal (BMR) and exercise-induced maximal metabolic rates (MMR) in house sparrows before and after being injected with either saline (sham) or two novel antigens (keyhole limpet haemocyanin and sheep red blood cells; KLH and SRBC, respectively) after the primary and two subsequent vaccinations. We also examined the effect of experimentally-induced breeding levels of testosterone (T) on immune responses and their metabolic costs in both...
