Supplementary information for: Using networks to identify structure in phylogenetic tree sets

Jeremy Brown, Melissa Marchand, Wen Huang, Guifang Zhou, Genevieve Mount, Jeremy Ash, Kyle Gallivan & James Wilgenbusch
Modern phylogenomic studies produce large sets of trees that can represent variation in inferred phylogenies across genes, uncertainty in estimated phylogenies for a given gene, or both. Standard practice is to condense this variation down to a small set of point estimates or consensus trees in order to facilitate display and interpretation. However, doing so results in the loss of enormous amounts of information about the structure of the underlying tree set. Here, we propose...

Data from: Zonation of mangrove flora and fauna in a subtropical estuarine wetland based on surface elevation

Wei Ma, Wenqing Wang, Chaoyi Tang, Guogui Chen & Mao Wang
In the context of sea-level rise (SLR), an understanding of the spatial distributions of mangrove flora and fauna is required for effective ecosystem management and conservation. These distributions are greatly affected by tidal inundation, and surface elevation is a reliable quantitative indicator of the effects of tidal inundation. Most recent studies have focused exclusively on the quantitative relationships between mangrove-plant zonation and surface elevation, neglecting mangrove fauna. Here, we measured surface elevation along six transects...

Chromosome-level genome assembly of Poropuntius huangchuchieni

Lin Chen
Poropuntius huangchuchieni is a diploid species in the family cyprinid, widely distributed in Mekong and Red River basins. Previous study suggested that it is one of the most closely related diploid ancestral species to common carp, which has allotetraploidized genome generated by merging two diploid genomes during evolution. Therefore, P. huangchuchieni is an ideal diploid model for polyploid evolution study in Cyprinidae. Here, we report a high-quality chromosome-level genome assembly of P. huangchuchieni by the...

Description and classification of echolocation clicks of Indian Ocean humpback (Sousa plumbea) and Indo-Pacific bottlenose (Tursiops aduncus) dolphins from Menai Bay, Zanzibar, East Africa

Liangliang Yang, Matt Sharpe, Andrew Temple, Narriman Jiddawi, Xiaomei Xu & Per Berggren
Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is a powerful method to study the occurrence, movement and behavior of echolocating odontocetes (toothed whales) in the wild. However, in areas occupied by more than one species, echolocation clicks need to be classified into species. The present study investigated whether the echolocation clicks produced by small, at-risk, resident sympatric populations of Indian Ocean humpback dolphin (Sousa plumbea) and Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) in Menai Bay, Zanzibar, East Africa, could...

Data from: Intra-specific variation in tree growth responses to neighborhood composition and seasonal drought in a tropical forest

1. Functional traits are expected to provide insights into the abiotic and biotic drivers of plant demography. However, successfully linking traits to plant demographic performance likely requires the consideration of important contextual and individual-level information that is often ignored in trait-based ecology. 2. Here, we modeled 8 years of growth from 1,138 individual trees from 36 tropical rain forest species. We compared models of tree growth parameterized using individual-level versus species mean trait data. We...

Electronic structure and interface energetics of CuBi2O4 photoelectrodes - data

Freddy E Oropeza, Nelson Y Dzade, Amalia Pons-Marti, Zhenni Yang, Kelvin H L Zhang, Nora H De Leeuw, Emiel J M Hensen & Jan P Hofmann
In this study, the electronic structure of CuBi2O4 has been studied by a combination of hard X-ray photoemission, resonant photoemission and X-ray absorption spectroscopies, and compared with density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The photoemission study indicates that there is a strong Bi 6s-O 2p hybrid electronic state at 2.3 eV below the Fermi level, whereas the valence band maximum (VBM) has a predominant Cu 3d – O 2p hybrid character. XAS at the O K-edge...

Environmental drivers of plant distributions at global and regional scales: occurrence data with associated environmental variables of plant families/genera/species

Erhan Huang, Shixiao Yu & Yuxin Chen
How environmental factors drive plant distribution across globe is one of the most fundamental questions in ecology. Plant distributions may be shaped by various environmental factors, such as climate, topography and edaphic factors. Nevertheless, it is not clear about the relative importance of different environmental factors in driving plant distribution across spatial scales and among plant groups. This study aimed to disentangle how plant–environment relationships vary with latitude and among plant taxa including angiosperms, gymnosperms,...

Data from: Genomic evidence of prevalent hybridization throughout the evolutionary history of the fig-wasp pollination mutualism

Gang Wang, Xingtan Zhang, Edward Herre, Charles Cannon, Doyle McKey, Carlos Machado, Wen-Bin Yu, Michael Arnold, Rodrigo Pereira, Ray Ming, Yi-Fei Liu, Yibin Wang, Dongna Ma & Jin Chen
Ficus (figs) and their agaonid wasp pollinators present an ecologically important mutualism that also provides a rich comparative system for studying functional co-diversification throughout its coevolutionary history (~75 million years). We obtained entire nuclear, mitochondrial, and chloroplast genomes for 15 species representing all major clades of Ficus. Multiple analyses of these genomic data suggest that hybridization events have occurred throughout Ficus evolutionary history. Furthermore, cophylogenetic reconciliation analyses detect significant incongruence among all nuclear, chloroplast, and...
