Data from: A logical model of homology for comparative biology

Paula Mabee, James Balhoff, Wasila Dahdul, Hilmar Lapp, Christopher Mungall & Todd Vision
There is a growing body of research on the evolution of anatomy in a wide variety of organisms. Discoveries in this field could be greatly accelerated by computational methods and resources that enable these findings to be compared across different studies and different organisms and linked with the genes responsible for anatomical modifications. Homology is a key concept in comparative anatomy; two important types are historical homology (the similarity of organisms due to common ancestry)...

Data from: Do the high energy lifestyles of shorebirds result in high maximal metabolic rates? - Basal and maximal metabolic rates in least and pectoral sandpipers during migration

Nathan E. Thomas & David L. Swanson
Shorebirds have high resting and field metabolic rates relative to many other bird groups, and this is posited to be related to their high-energy lifestyle. Maximum metabolic outputs for cold or exercise are also often high for bird groups with energetically demanding lifestyles. Moreover, shorebirds demonstrate flexible basal and maximal metabolic rates, which vary with changing energy demands throughout the annual cycle. Consequently, shorebirds might be expected to have high maximum metabolic rates, especially during...

Data from: Emerging reservoir delta-backwaters: biophysical dynamics and riparian biodiversity

Malia A. Volke, W. Carter Johnson, Mark D. Dixon & Michael L. Scott
Deltas and backwater-affected bottomlands are forming along tributary and mainstem confluences in reservoirs worldwide. Emergence of prograding deltas, along with related upstream hydrogeomorphic changes to river bottomlands in the backwater fluctuation zones of reservoirs, signals the development of new and dynamic riparian and wetland habitats. This study was conducted along the regulated Missouri River, USA to examine delta-backwater formation and describe vegetation response to its development and dynamics. Our research focused specifically on the delta-backwater...
