Exposure to and experience of self-harm and self-harm related content: An exploratory network analysis

Olivia Kirtley, Ian Hussey & Lisa Marzano
Exposure to the self-harm behaviour of others plays a role in individuals’ own self-harm ideation and behaviours, but there has been little consideration of the broader range of mediums through which exposure to self-harm related content may occur. We used pre-existing data from N=477 participants who took part in a larger study on public attitudes to self-harmful behaviours and conducted an exploratory network analysis of how different types of exposure are related to self-harm thoughts...

The role of preadaptation, propagule pressure and competition in the colonization of new habitats

Adriana Alzate Vallejo, Renske Onstein, Rampal S. Etienne & Dries Bonte
To successfully colonize new habitats, organisms not only need to gain access to it, they also need to cope with the selective pressures imposed by the local biotic and abiotic conditions. The number of immigrants, the preadaptation to the local habitat and the presence of competitors are important factors determining the success of colonization. Here, using two experimental set-ups, we studied the effect of interspecific competition in combination with propagule pressure and preadaptation on the...

Urbanization alters plastic responses in the common dandelion

Matti Pisman, Dries Bonte & Eduardo De La Pena
Urban environments expose species to contrasting selection pressures relative to rural areas due to altered microclimatic conditions, habitat fragmentation and changes in species interactions. To improve our understanding on how urbanisation impacts selection through biotic interactions, we assessed differences in plant defence and tolerance, dispersal and flowering phenology of a common plant species (Taraxacum officinale) along an urbanization gradient and their reaction norms in response to a biotic stressor (i.e. herbivory). We raised plants from...

Support for the habitat amount hypothesis from a global synthesis of species density studies

James Watling, Víctor Arroyo-Rodríguez, Marion Pfeifer, Lander Baeten, Cristina Banks-Leite, Laura Cisneros, Rebecca Fang, Caroli Hamel-Leigue, Thibault Lachat, Inara Leal, Luc Lens, Hugh Possingham, Dinarzarde Raheem, Danilo Ribeiro, Eleanor Slade, Nicolas Urbina-Cardona, Eric Wood & Lenore Fahrig
Decades of research suggest that species richness depends on spatial characteristics of habitat patches, especially their size and isolation. In contrast, the habitat amount hypothesis predicts that: 1) species richness in plots of fixed size (species density) is more strongly and positively related to the amount of habitat around the plot than to patch size or isolation; 2) habitat amount better predicts species density than patch size and isolation combined, 3) there is no effect...

Liana communities exhibit different species composition, diversity and community structure across forest types in the Congo Basin

Francis Mumbanza M., Marijn Bauters, Elizabeth Kearsley, Pascal Boeckx, Constantin Lubini A. & Hans Verbeeck
Lianas are poorly characterized for central African forests. We quantify variation in liana composition, diversity and community structure in different forest types in the Yangambi Man and Biosphere Reserve, Democratic Republic of Congo. These attributes of liana assemblages were examined in 12 1-ha plots, randomly demarcated within regrowth forest, old-growth monodominant forest, old-growth mixed forest and old-growth edge forest. Using a combination of multivariate and univariate community analyses, we visualize the patterns of these liana...

Data from: Using structured eradication feasibility assessment to prioritise the management of new and emerging invasive alien species in Europe

Roy, Tim Adriaens, Richard Shaw, Johan Van Valkenburg, Gabe Wyn, Sandro Bertolino, Olivier Blight, Etienne Branquart, Giuseppe Brundu, Joe Caffrey, Dario Capizzi, Jim Casaer, Olivier De Clerck, Neil Coughlan, Eithne Davis, Jaimie Dick, Franz Essl, Guillaume Fried, Piero Genovesi, Pablo González-Moreno, Frank Hysentruyt … & Aileen C. Mill
Prioritising the management of invasive alien species (IAS) is of global importance and within Europe integral to the EU IAS regulation. To prioritise management effectively the risks posed by IAS need to be assessed, but so too does the feasibility of their management. While risk of IAS to the EU has been assessed, the feasibility of management has not. We assessed the feasibility of eradicating 60 new (not yet established) and 35 emerging (established with...

The neglected impact of tracking devices on terrestrial arthropods

Femke Batsleer, Dries Bonte, Daan Dekeukeleire, Steven Goossens, Ward Poelmans, Eliane Van Der Cruyssen, Dirk Maes & Martijn L. Vandegehuchte
Tracking devices have become small enough to be widely applied to arthropods to study their movement. However, possible side effects of these devices on arthropod performance and behaviour are rarely considered. We performed a systematic review of 173 papers about research in which tracking devices –Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), harmonic radar, and radio telemetry tags– were attached to terrestrial arthropods. The impact of such tags was quantified in only 12% of the papers, while in...

Staying informed, in touch and ‘in sync’ with society during times of crisis: The smartphone use of Flemish adults during the COVID-19 pandemic

Jakob Ohme, Mariek Vanden Abeele, Kyle Van Gaeveren, Wouter Durnez & Lieven De Marez
The worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 virus puts the work and social life of citizens around the globe to a halt. During this time of crisis, digital media such as smartphones are a window to the world. Based on the mobileDNA data of 2778 Flemish adults, this report reveals that smartphones are key instruments to keep informed, stay in touch with loved ones and participate in the public sphere.

Global biogeography and diversification of a group of brown seaweeds (Phaeophyceae) driven by clade-specific evolutionary processes

Christophe Vieira, Frederique Steen, Sofie D'hondt, Quinten Bafort, Cindy Fernandez-García, Brian Wysor, Lennert Tyberghein, Ana Tronholm, Lydiane Mattio, Claude Payri, Gary Saunders, Frederik Leliaert, Heroen Verbruggen & Olivier De Clerck
Aim: Historical processes that shaped current diversity patterns of seaweeds remain poorly understood. Using Dictyotales, a globally distributed order of brown seaweeds as a model, we test if historical biogeographical and diversification patterns are comparable across clades. Dictyotales contain some 22 genera, three of which, Dictyota, Lobophora and Padina, are exceptionally diverse. Specifically we test if the evolutionary processes in these clades that shaped their latitudinal diversity patterns are in line with the tropical conservatism,...

Large-Eddy Simulations of T-shaped Open-Channel Confluences With Different Downstream Channel Widths

Pedro Xavier Ramos, Laurent Schindfessel, João Pedro Pêgo & Tom De Mulder
Confluences of open-channel flows are common in nature as well as in urban drainage networks and in hydraulic structures. The complex hydrodynamics is often studied in schematized, right-angled confluences. In this paper, the influence of the downstream channel width onto time-averaged and turbulent flow features will be investigated numerically, based on Large-Eddy Simulations. For one flow situation, i.e. flow ratio and downstream Froude number, two geometries will be compared: a discordant width case, which was...
