Data from: Alien honeybees increase pollination risks for range-restricted plants

Olivia Norfolk, Francis Gilbert & Markus P. Eichhorn
Aim Range-restricted species are of high conservation concern, and the way in which they interact with more widespread species has implications for their persistence. Here, we determine how the specialization of mutualistic interactions varies with respect to the geographic range size of plants and pollinators and assess how they respond to the introduction of the alien honeybee. We also compare network characteristics (connectance, specialization and nestedness) between an invaded low mountain and non-invaded high mountain...

Data from: Anthropogenic noise disrupts mate searching in Gryllus bimaculatus

Adam M. Bent, Thomas C. Ings & Sophie L. Mowles
Many animals use acoustic communication as a means of sending important biological information, such as their location, to potential receivers. However, anthropogenic noise is known to affect the ability of some species to either produce or receive signals, which may influence their reproductive success. In this study, we investigate the effect of anthropogenic noise on the mate searching behaviors of the field cricket Gryllus bimaculatus. To accomplish this, phonotaxis trials were conducted with female field...
