The way bioclimatic variables are calculated has impact on potential distribution models

Ákos Bede-Fazekas & Imelda Somodi
1. Bioclimatic variables (BCVs) are routinely used in potential distribution models, typically without considering their calculation options in detail. We aimed at studying the impact of a decision, yet unexamined, on the calculation of BCVs, namely whether the identity of specific months/quarters in the calculation of BCVs should be updated for the future periods (temporal context). Effects on the performance of potential distribution models and on their projections were investigated. Additionally, we also aimed at...

Data from: The effect of social environment on bird song: listener-specific expression of a sexual signal

Mónika Jablonszky, Sándor Zsebők, Miklós Laczi, Gergely Nagy, Éva Vaskuti & László Zsolt Garamszegi
Animal signals should consistently differ among individuals to convey distinguishable information about the signalers. However, behavioral display signals, such as bird song are also loaded with considerable within-individual variance with mostly unknown function. We hypothesized that the immediate social environment may play a role in mediating such variance component, and investigated in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis) if the identity and quality of listeners could affect song production in signalers. After presenting territorial males with...
