Data from: Phylogeography and demographic history of two widespread Indo-Pacific mudskippers (Gobiidae: Periophthalmus)Gianluca Polgar, Lorenzo Zane, Massimiliano Babbucci, Federica Barbisan, Tomaso Patarnello, Lukas Rüber & Chiara Papetti
This study provides a first description of the phylogeographic patterns and evolutionary history of two species of the mudskipper genus Periophthalmus. These amphibious gobies are distributed throughout the whole Indo-Pacific region and Atlantic coast of Africa, in peritidal habitats of soft-bottom coastal ecosystems. Three sequence datasets of two widely distributed species, Periophthalmus argentilineatus and P. kalolo, were obtained by amplifying and sequencing two mtDNA markers (D-loop and 16S rDNA) and the nDNA rag1 region. The...

Data from: High cover of hedgerows in the landscape supports multiple ecosystem services in Mediterranean cereal fieldsMatteo Dainese, Silvia Montecchiari, Tommaso Sitzia, Maurizia Sigura & Lorenzo Marini
Field-margin diversification through conservation and restoration of hedgerows is becoming a prominent intervention for promoting biodiversity and associated ecosystem services in intensive agricultural landscapes. However, how increasing cover of hedgerows in the landscape can affect ecosystem services has rarely been considered. Here, we assessed the effect of increased field-margin complexity at the local scale and increasing cover of hedgerows in the landscape on the provision of pest control, weed control and potential pollination. Locally, three...
Data from: The replication of Frataxin gene is assured by activation of dormant origins in the presence of a GAA-repeat expansionMartina Stevanoni, Elisa Palumbo & Antonella Russo
It is well known that DNA replication affects the stability of several trinucleotide repeats, but whether replication profiles of human loci carrying an expanded repeat differ from those of normal alleles is poorly understood in the endogenous context. We investigated this issue using cell lines from Friedreich’s ataxia patients, homozygous for a GAA-repeat expansion in intron 1 of the Frataxin gene. By interphase, FISH we found that in comparison to the normal Frataxin sequence the...
Several fish species are characterized by social systems in which individuals prefer to interact with specific group mates. However, there is no clear evidence that such associations are equitable, i.e. they are mutual between individuals. We addressed this issue in the guppy (Poecilia reticulata), a species in which social network analyses have evidenced non-random social associations between individuals. We measured the mutual preference in pairs of guppies that previously familiarized in groups of either two...
Data from: Quick-change artists: male guppies pay no cost to repeatedly adjust their sexual strategiesMartina Magris, Gianluca Chimetto, Sofia Rizzi & Andrea Pilastro
Sexually selected traits involved in mate acquisition and fertilization success are usually costly and males often plastically adjust their reproductive investment in response to social conditions. Phenotypic plasticity in male sexual traits is generally assumed to be adaptive, yet its costs are rarely investigated. Male guppies (Poecilia reticulata) adjust their ejaculate production and sexual behavior in response to perceived mating opportunities. In natural populations mating opportunities can fluctuate continuously, and the iterated activation of plastic...

Managing agricultural landscapes to support biodiversity and ecosystem services is a key aim of a sustainable agriculture. However, how the spatial arrangement of crop fields and other habitats in landscapes impacts arthropods and their functions is poorly known. Synthesising data from 49 studies (1515 landscapes) across Europe, we examined effects of landscape composition (% habitats) and configuration (edge density) on arthropods in fields and their margins, pest control, pollination and yields. Configuration effects interacted with...
Social animals have evolved a range of signals to avoid aggressive and facilitate affiliative interactions. Vocal behaviour is especially important in this respect with many species, including various primates, producing acoustically distinct ‘greeting calls’ when two individuals approach each other. While the ultimate function of greeting calls has been explored in several species, little effort has been made to understand the mechanisms of this behaviour across species. The aim of this study was to explore...
Data from: Extra food provisioning reduces extra-pair paternity in the lesser kestrel (Falco naumanni)Alessandra Costanzo, Nicola Tommasi, Andrea Galimberti, Giorgia Scesa, Roberto Ambrosini, Matteo Griggio, Jacopo G. Cecere & Diego Rubolini
Female promiscuity can function to acquire both direct and indirect benefits from their social mate and extra-pair males. In many raptor species, intense mate-feeding significantly contributes to female energy requirements before and during egg laying. Moreover, females may use mate-feeding effort to assess male quality. In this study of the lesser kestrel (Falco naumanni), we aimed at experimentally manipulating the female’s perception of mate quality by providing females with extra food during egg laying, and...
Along-shelf connectivity and circumpolar gene flow in Antarctic silverfish (Pleuragramma antarctica)Jilda Alicia Caccavo, Chiara Papetti, , Rainer Knust, Julian R. Ashford & Lorenzo Zane
The Antarctic silverfish (Pleuragramma antarctica) is a critically important forage species with a circumpolar distribution and is unique among other notothenioid species for its wholly pelagic life cycle. Previous studies have provided mixed evidence of population structure over regional and circumpolar scales. The aim of the present study was to test the recent population hypothesis for Antarctic silverfish, which emphasizes the interplay between life history and hydrography in shaping connectivity. A total of 1067 individuals...
Simultaneous two-photon voltage or calcium imaging and multi-channel LFP recordings in barrel cortex of awake and anesthetized miceClaudia Cecchetto, Stefano Vassanelli & Bernd Kuhn
Neuronal population activity, both spontaneous and sensory-evoked, generates propagating waves in cortex. However, high spatiotemporal-resolution mapping of these waves is difficult as calcium imaging, the work horse of current imaging, does not reveal subthreshold activity. Here, we present a platform combining voltage or calcium two-photon imaging with multi-channel local field potential (LFP) recordings in different layers of the barrel cortex from anesthetized and awake head-restrained mice. A chronic cranial window with access port allows injecting...
This report provides a complete description of the general “Ciampate del diavolo” palaeontological site (Tora e Piccilli, Central-Southern Italy) and each of the human ichnites there found so far. This description is integrated and completed with the tables, graphs, and pictures given in Supplements 1, 2, and 3 of this volume [Panarello et al., 2022a;b;c]. We think that this huge amount of both numeric and visual data will be very useful for any other human...
The various on-field activities which have been carried out by researchers in the “Devil’s Trails” palaeontological site from 2005 to 2010 and the subsequent Ph.D. researches on the site that took place until 2016 have allowed us to identify - in addition to the various ichnological evidence of prehistoric times - also a series of anthropic cuts made in various historical times. These cuts sometimes overlap the prehistoric traces, or partially alter them, so creating...

Synaptic alterations in visual cortex reshape contrast-dependent gamma oscillations and inhibition-excitation ratio in a genetic mouse model of migraineNicolò Meneghetti, Chiara Cerri, Eleonora Vannini, Elena Tantillo, Angelita Tottene, Daniela Pietrobon, Matteo Caleo & Alberto Mazzoni
Abstract Background Migraine affects a significant fraction of the world population, yet its etiology is not completely understood. In vitro results highlighted thalamocortical and intra-cortical glutamatergic synaptic gain-of-function associated with a monogenic form of migraine (familial-hemiplegic-migraine-type-1: FHM1). However, how these alterations reverberate on cortical activity remains unclear. As altered responsivity to visual stimuli and abnormal processing of visual sensory information are common hallmarks of migraine, herein we investigated the effects of FHM1-driven synaptic alterations in...
