Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is very important in order to enhance the lifestyle of the patients. Due to recent advancements in mobile technology and software applications, various assistive toolkits are developed but a majority of them fails to handle complex data and sometimes gives inaccurate results. At present various studies are being done but a lots is yet to be discovered. This paper presents an assistive technology for Alzheimer’s patients. We have developed an Android...

Data from: White Syndrome in Acropora muricata: Non-specific bacterial infection and ciliate histophagy

Michael Sweet & John Bythell
Selective antibiotic treatment of White Syndrome (WS)-affected corals (Acropora muricata) from Fiji was used to identify 3 potential bacterial pathogens of the disease. Interestingly, the suite of bacterial associates of the disease was different to that recently identified using identical primer sets for WS on the GBR and in the Solomon Islands. In addition to the three bacterial pathogenic candidates and as previously shown for WS and more recently for White Band Disease (WBD) in...

A test of island biogeographic theory applied to estimates of gene flow in a Fijian bird is largely consistent with neutral expectations

Ethan Gyllenhaal, Xena Mapel, Alivereti Naikatini, Robert Moyle & Michael Andersen
Islands were key to the development of allopatric speciation theory because they are a natural laboratory of repeated barriers to gene flow caused by open water gaps. Despite their proclivity for promoting divergence, little empirical work has quantified the extent of gene flow among island populations. Following classic island biogeographic theory, two metrics of interest are relative island size and distance. Fiji presents an ideal system for studying these dynamics, with four main islands that...

Modelling the potential global distribution of suitable habitat for the biological control agent Heterorhabditis indica

Sumeet Kour
Entomopathogenic nematode (EPN) Heterorhabditis indica is a promising biocontrol candidate. Despite the acknowledged importance of EPN in pest control, no extensive data sets or maps have been developed on their distribution at global level. This study is the first attempt to generate Ecological Niche Models (ENM) for H. indica and its global Habitat Suitability Map (HSM) to generate biogeographical information and predicts its global geographical range of prospective areas for its exploration and to help...

Inter- and intra-archipelago dynamics of population structure and gene flow in a Polynesian bird

Ethan Gyllenhaal, Xena Mapel, Tejashree Modak, Lucas DeCicco, Alivereti Naikatini, Ruth Utzurrum, Joshua Seamon, Jean-Claude Thibault, Alice Cibois, Michael Sorenson, Robert Moyle, Lisa Barrow & Michael Andersen
Islands are separated by natural barriers that prevent gene flow between terrestrial populations and promote allopatric diversification. Birds in the South Pacific are an excellent model to explore the interplay between isolation and gene flow due to the region’s numerous archipelagos and well-characterized avian communities. The wattled honeyeater complex (Foulehaio spp.) comprises three allopatric species that are widespread and common across Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, and Wallis and Futuna. Here, we explored patterns of diversification within...

SNP data: Population genetic structure in bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas)

Kerstin Glaus
The bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) is a large, mobile, circumglobally distributed high trophic level predator that inhabits a variety of remote islands and continental coastal habitats, including freshwater environments. Here, we hypothesise that the barriers to dispersal created by large oceanic expanses and deep-water trenches result in a heterogeneous distribution of the neutral genetic diversity between island bull shark populations compared to populations sampled in continental locations connected through continuous coastlines of continental shelves. We...

Data from: Redirection of ambient light improves predator detection in a diurnal fish

Matteo Santon, Pierre-Paul Bitton, Jasha Dehm, Roland Fritsch, Ulrike Harant, Nils Anthes & Nico K. Michiels
Cases where animals use controlled illumination to improve vision are rare and thus far limited to chemiluminescence, which only functions in darkness. This constraint was recently relaxed by studies on Tripterygion delaisi, a small triplefin that redirects sunlight instead. By reflecting light sideways with its iris, it has been suggested to induce and detect eyeshine in nearby microprey. Here, we test whether "diurnal active photolocation" also improves T. delaisi's ability to detect a cryptobenthic sit-and-wait...

Glaciochemistry and Pigment Producing Ability of Bacteria from the Roof of the World, the Glaciers of Karakoram, Pakistan

Noor Hassan, Muhammad Rafiq, Abdul Haleem, Naveed Iqbal, Mohsin Khan, Aamir Ali Shah & Fariha Hasan
The Karakoram Mountain Range (KMR) is one of the largest mountain ranges in the world, with ∼37% of its area glaciated. Glaciers harbor various microbes, including bacteria exposed to various extreme conditions. To thrive under these conditions, bacteria adopt various strategies, one of the most important being the production of pigments. Here, we present the geochemistry of ice, sediment and meltwaters sampled from Ghulmet, Ghulkin and Hopar glaciers of the Karakoram Range, Pakistan. In addition,...

Data from: Null alleles are ubiquitous at microsatellite loci in the Wedge Clam (Donax trunculus)

Ciro Rico, Jose Antonio Cuesta, Pilar Drake, Enrique Macpherson, Louis Bernatchez & Amandine D. Marie
Recent studies have reported an unusually high frequency of nonamplifying alleles at microsatellite loci in bivalves. Null alleles have been associated with heterozygous deficits in many studies. While several studies have tested for its presence using different analytical tools, few have empirically tested for its consequences in estimating population structure and differentiation. We characterised 16 newly developed microsatellite loci and show that null alleles are ubiquitous in the wedge clam, Donax trunculus. We carried out...

Data from: Discovery of a multi-species shark aggregation and parturition area in the Ba Estuary, Fiji Islands

Tom Vierus, Stefan Gehrig, Juerg M. Brunnschweiler, Kerstin Glaus, Martin Zimmer, Amandine D. Marie & Ciro Rico
Population declines in shark species have been reported on local and global scales, with overfishing, habitat destruction and climate change posing severe threats. The lack of species-specific baseline data on ecology and distribution of many sharks, however, makes conservation measures challenging. Here we present a fisheries-independent shark survey from the Fiji Islands, where scientific knowledge on locally occurring elasmobranchs is largely still lacking despite the location’s role as a shark hotspot in the Pacific. Juvenile...
