Data on the Effects of Persuasive Message Content on Retweet Counts during Natural Hazard Events

Yajie Li, Amanda Hughes & Peter Howe
This dataset contains Twitter messages about heat hazards posted by U.S. National Weather Service accounts in 2016. The dataset also contains the retweet counts of the heat-related tweets and whether several types of persuasive message content were included in each tweet. The population and temperature for the forecast area of each sending National Weather Service account are also included.

Relationships between plant-soil feedbacks and functional traits

Nianxun Xi, Peter Adler, Dongxia Chen, Hangyu Wu, Jane Catford, Peter Van Bodegom, Michael Bahn, Kerri Crawford & Chengjin Chu
Plant-soil feedbacks (PSF) and functional traits are two active but not well theoretically integrated areas of research. However, PSF and traits are both affected by life history evolution, so the two should theoretically be related. We provide a conceptual framework to link plant functional traits to two types of PSF metrics, and hypothesize that individual PSF (plant performance in conspecific versus heterospecific soil) should be related to the fast-slow trait spectrum, while pairwise PSF (the...

Data from: 'Bottled' spiro-doubly aromatic trinuclear [Pd2Ru]+ complexes

Alexander Boldyrev & Maksim Kulichenko
The central unit of the synthesized structure is a Ru atom which is the vertex of the [RuPd2]+ triangle being the first example of mixed triangles among these metals. Moreover, Ru is involved in both σ- and π-aromaticity. σ-aromaticity is realized as the d-AO based multicenter bond which is delocalized over the inner [RuPd2]+ triangle with considerable contribution from the sulfur electron density. Besides, transition metals are known to interact with the electron cloud of...

Natural selection drives genome-wide evolution via chance genetic associations

Zachariah Gompert, Jeff Feder & Patrik Nosil
Understanding selection's impact on the genome is a major theme in biology. Functionally-neutral genetic regions can be affected indirectly by natural selection, via their statistical association with genes under direct selection. The genomic extent of such indirect selection, particularly across loci not physically linked to those under direct selection, remains poorly understood, as does the time scale at which indirect selection occurs. Here we use field experiments and genomic data in stick insects, deer mice...

Data from: Age-related mushroom body expansion in male sweat bees and bumble bees

Mallory Hagadorn, Karlee Eck, Matthew Del Grosso, Xavier Haemmerle, William Wcislo & Karen Kapheim
A well-documented phenomenon among social insects is that brain changes occur prior to or at the onset of certain experiences, potentially serving to prime the brain for specific tasks. This insight comes almost exclusively from studies considering developmental maturation in females. As a result, it is unclear whether age-related brain plasticity is consistent across sexes, and to what extent developmental patterns differ. Using confocal microscopy and volumetric analyses, we investigated age-related brain changes coinciding with...

Data for Integrated Step Selection Analysis of translocated female greater sage-grouse in the 60 days post-release, North Dakota 2018-2020

Simona Picardi
The data include used and random available steps at 11-hour resolution generated for 26 female greater sage-grouse in the 60 days post-translocation to North Dakota, with associated environmental predictors and individual information. The code fits individual habitat selection models in an Integrated Step Selection Analysis framework. Data used to fit the models described in: Picardi, S., Ranc, N., Smith, B.J., Coates, P.S., Mathews, S.R., Dahlgren, D.K. Individual variation in temporal dynamics of post-release habitat selection....

UCE phylogenomics of New World Cryptopone (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) elucidates genus boundaries, species boundaries, and the vicariant history of a temperate-tropical disjunction

Michael G. Branstetter & John T. Longino
The genus Cryptopone Emery contains 25 species of litter and soil ants, 5 of which occur in the Americas. Cryptoponegilva occurs in the southeastern U.S.A. and cloud forests of Mesoamerica, exhibiting an uncommon biogeographic disjunction observed most often in plants. We used phylogenomic data from ultraconserved elements (UCEs), as well as mitogenomes and legacy markers, to investigate phylogenetic relationships, species boundaries, and divergence dates among New World Cryptopone. Species delimitation was conducted using a standard...

Phenotypic and Genetic data for \"Evolution of fruit and seed traits during almond naturalization\"

Rafael Rubio De Casas, Andres Barea Marquez, Francisco Ocaña-Calahorro, Rodrigo Balaguer-Romano, José María Gómez, Eugene W. Schupp, Raquel Sanchez-Perez, Jesus Guillamon & Joanna Zhang
1- Cultivated plant species often naturalize and enter wild communities in a process known as feralization. To successfully feralize, crops must overcome ecological barriers and may undergo selection on certain traits, diverging phenotypically and genetically from their crop ancestors. In spite of the agronomic and ecological relevance of crop feralization, the eco-evolutionary dynamics driving it remain understudied. 2- In this paper, we evaluated phenotypic and genotypic differentiation in fruit and seed traits during the naturalization...
