Insect seed and cone predation reduces reproductive potential of treeline conifers across northern Canada

Lucas Brehaut, Katie Goodwin, Kirsten Reid, Anna Crofts, Ryan Danby, Steven Mamet & Carissa Brown
Aim: Altitudinal and latitudinal treeline ecotones have not consistently responded to climate warming the in direction and/or magnitude as predicted by climate alone, suggesting that non-climatic mechanisms (e.g., biotic interactions) are also mediating treeline range dynamics. Through a collaborative research approach, we assessed environmental conditions associated with insect cone granivory and how this biotic interaction may govern the reproductive potential, and therefore range dynamics, of spruce-dominated treelines across northern Canada. Location: Ten boreal forest treelines,...

Data from: Large herbivores trigger spatiotemporal changes in forest plant diversity

Julien Beguin, Steeve D. Côté & Mark Vellend
Large herbivores can exert top-down control on terrestrial plant communities, but the magnitude, direction, and scale-dependency of their impacts remain equivocal, especially in temperate and boreal forests, where multiple disturbances often interact. Using a unique, long-term and replicated landscape experiment, we assessed the influence of a high density of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) on the spatiotemporal dynamics of diversity, composition, and successional trajectories of understorey plant assemblages in recently logged boreal forests. This experiment provided...

Maternal Mediterranean diet in pregnancy and newborn DNA methylation: a meta-analysis in the PACE Consortium

Leanne K. Küpers, Sílvia Fernández-Barrés, Aayah Nounu, Chloe Friedman, Ruby Fore, Giulia Mancano, Dana Dabelea, Sheryl L. Rifas-Shiman, Rosa H. Mulder, Emily Oken, Laura Johnson, Mariona Bustamante, Vincent W.V. Jaddoe, Marie-France Hivert, Anne P. Starling, Jeanne H.M. de Vries, Gemma C. Sharp, Martine Vrijheid & Janine F. Felix
Higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet during pregnancy is related to a lower risk of preterm birth and to better offspring cardiometabolic health. DNA methylation may be an underlying biological mechanism. We evaluated whether maternal adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with offspring cord blood DNA methylation. We meta-analysed epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS) of maternal adherence to the Mediterranean diet during pregnancy and offspring cord blood DNA methylation in 2802 mother–child pairs from five...

The impact of funding models on the integration of registered nurses in primary health care teams: protocol for a multi-phase mixed-methods study in Canada

Maria Mathews, Sarah Spencer, Lindsay Hedden, Julia Lukewich, Marie-Eve Poitras, Emily Gard Marshall, Judith Belle Brown, Shannon Sibbald & Alison A. Norful
Abstract Background Family practice registered nurses co-managing patient care as healthcare professionals in interdisciplinary primary care teams have been shown to improve access, continuity of care, patient satisfaction, and clinical outcomes for patients with chronic diseases while being cost-effective. Currently, however, it is unclear how different funding models support or hinder the integration of family practice nurses into existing primary health care systems and interdisciplinary practices. This has resulted in the underutilisation of family practice...

Data set for combined influence of food availability and agricultural intensification on a declining aerial insectivore

Daniel Garrett
Aerial insectivores show worldwide population declines coinciding with shifts in agricultural practices. Increasing reliance on certain agricultural practices is thought to have led to an overall reduction in insect abundance that negatively affects aerial insectivore fitness. The relationship between prey availability and the fitness of insectivores may thus vary with the extent of agricultural intensity. It is therefore imperative to quantify the strength and direction of these associations. Here we used data from an 11-year...

Data for the article: Trophic niche partitioning between two prey and their incidental predators revealed various threats for an endangered species

Ève Rioux, Fanie Pelletier & Martin-Hugues St-Laurent
Documenting trophic niche partitioning and resource use within a community is critical to evaluate underlying mechanisms of coexistence, competition or predation. Detailed knowledge about foraging is essential as it may influence the vital rates, which, in turn, can affect trophic relationships between species and population dynamics. The aims of this study were to evaluate resource and trophic niche partitioning in summer/autumn between the endangered Atlantic-Gaspésie caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) population, moose (Alces americanus) and their...

Acceptability of Pediatric Telerehabilitation Interventions Provided by Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists—A Scoping Review

Rosalie Dostie, Isabelle Gaboury, Eda Cinar & Chantal Camden
The purpose of this scoping review was to explore the available literature and identify gaps regarding the acceptability of telerehabilitation interventions provided by pediatric physical therapists and occupational therapists. We followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA-ScR) framework to guide this scoping review. We systematically searched eight scholarly databases (CINAHL, Medline, SPORTDiscus, AMED, APA PsychInfo, SCOPUS, PEDro, OTseeker), five gray literature databases (MedlinePlus, Gray Literature Report, OpenGrey, National Institute for Health,...

Post-weaning survival in kangaroos is high and constant until senescence: Implications for population dynamics

Rachel Bergeron, Gabriel Pigeon, David M. Forsyth, Wendy J. King & Marco Festa-Bianchet
Large herbivores typically have consistently high prime-aged adult survival and lower, more variable, juvenile and senescent survival. Many kangaroo populations undergo greater fluctuations in density than other large herbivores, but age- and sex-specific survival of kangaroos and their response to environmental variation remain poorly estimated. We used long-term capture-mark-recapture data on 920 individuals to investigate the survival component of eastern grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) population dynamics. Forage availability and population density were monitored quarterly and...

Time-course full profiling of circulating miRNAs in neurologically deceased organ donors: a proof of concept study to understand the onset of the cytokine storm

Andrée-Anne Clément, Daphnée Lamarche, Marie-Hélène Masse, Cécilia Légaré, Lee-Hwa Tai, Laurence Fleury Deland, Marie-Claude Battista, Luigi Bouchard & Frédérick D’Aragon
Neurologically deceased organ donors (NDDs) generally display an immune response involving an intense production of pro-inflammatory cytokines referred to as the cytokine storm. The sudden surge of inflammatory mediators in circulation promotes tissue and organ damages and ultimately leads to poor transplant outcome. As microRNAs (miRNAs) are frequently proposed as key regulators of inflammation and are relatively stable in circulation, changes in their profiles could play a role in the onset of the cytokine storm...

Data for: Negative effects of agricultural intensification on the food provisioning rate of a declining aerial insectivore

Daniel Garrett
The historical rise of intensive agricultural practices is hypothesized to be related to declines of grassland and aerial insectivorous birds. Drivers of declines may also influence the overall abundance and spatial distribution of insects within agricultural landscapes. Subsequently, the food provisioning rate of birds breeding within more agro-intensive landscapes may be impacted. Lower provisioning rates in agro-intensive landscapes may lead to reduced growth rate, body condition or fledging success of nestlings but also to diminished...

Data sets for Interacting effects of cold snaps, rain, and agriculture on the fledging success of a declining aerial insectivore

Daniel Garrett
Climate change predicts the increased frequency, duration, and intensity of inclement weather periods, such as unseasonably low temperatures (i.e., cold snaps) and prolonged precipitation. Many migratory species have advanced the phenology of important life history stages, and as a result will likely be exposed to these periods of inclement spring weather more often, thus risking reduced fitness and population growth. For declining avian species, including aerial insectivores, anthropogenic landscape changes such as agricultural intensification are...

Data from: Above- and belowground drivers of intraspecific trait variability across subcontinental gradients for five ubiquitous forest plants in North America

Isabelle Aubin, Françoise Cardou, Alison Munson, Madhur Anand, André Arsenault, F. Wayne Bell, Yves Bergeron, Isabelle Boulangeat, Sylvain Delagrange, Nicole J. Fenton, Dominique Gravel, François Hébert, Jill Johnstone, S. Ellen Macdonald, Azim Mallik, Anne C.S. McIntosh, Jennie R. McLaren, Christian Messier, Dave Morris, Bill Shipley, Luc Sirois, Nelson Thiffault, Laura Boisvert-Marsh & Bright B. Kumordzi
Intraspecific trait variability (ITV) provides the material for species adaptation to environmental changes. To advance our understanding of how ITV can contribute to species adaptation to a wide range of environmental conditions, we studied five widespread understory forest species exposed to both continental-scale climate gradients, and local soil and disturbance gradients. We investigated the environmental drivers of between-site leaf and root trait variation, and tested whether higher between-site ITV was associated with increased trait sensitivity...

Dataset used for: Breeding migrations by bighorn sheep males: searching for mates increases vulnerability to hunting

Roxane Lassis, Marco Festa-Bianchet & Fanie Pelletier
In some species where male mating success largely depends on intrasexual competition, males can adopt migratory orresident strategies to seek breeding opportunities. The resulting mixture of resident and migrant tactics within a population can have important ecological, genetic and evolutionary consequences at the metapopulation level. Bighorn sheep Ovis canadensis males establish a linear dominance hierarchy that influences their mating tactics. Some males perform breeding migrations during the pre-rut and rut to seek mating opportunities, but...
