Wildlife damage to human property threatens human–wildlife coexistence. Conflicts arising from wildlife damage in intensively managed landscapes often undermine conservation efforts, making damage mitigation and compensation of special concern for wildlife conservation. However, the mechanisms underlying the occurrence of damage and claims at large scales are still poorly understood. Here, we investigated the patterns of damage caused by brown bears Ursus arctos and its ecological and socio-economic correlates at a continental scale. We compiled information...

Data from: Long term on-farm participatory maize breeding by stratified mass selection retains molecular diversity while improving agronomic performance

Mara Lisa Alves, Maria Belo, Bruna Carbas, Cláudia Brites, Manuel Paulo, Pedro Mendes-Moreira, Carla Brites, Maria Do Rosário Bronze, Zlatko Šatović & Maria Carlota Vaz Patto
Modern maize breeding programs gave rise to genetically uniform varieties that can affect maize's capacity to cope with increasing climate unpredictability. Maize populations, genetically more heterogeneous, can evolve and better adapt to a broader range of edaphic-climatic conditions. These populations usually suffer from low yields; it is therefore desirable to improve their agronomic performance while maintaining their valuable diversity levels. With this objective, a long-term participatory breeding/on-farm conservation program was established in Portugal. In this...

Jelena Ramljak, Gjoko Bunevski, Hysen Bytyqi, Božidarka Marković, Muhamed Brka, Ante Ivanković, Kristaq Kume, Srđan Stojanović, Vasil Nikolov, Mojca Simčič, Johann Soelkner, Elisabeth Kunz, Sophie Rothammer, Doris Seichter, Hans-Peter Grünenfelder, Elli T. Broxham, Waltraud Kugler & Ivica Medugorac
Preservation of genetic diversity is one of the most pressing challenges in the planetary boundaries concept. Within this context, we focused on genetic diversity in a native, unselected and highly admixed domesticated metapopulation. A set of 1828 individuals from 60 different cattle breeds was analysed using a medium density SNP chip. Among these breeds, 14 Buša strains formed a metapopulation represented by 350 individuals, while the remaining 46 breeds represented the global cattle population. Genetic...

Data from: Targeted re-sequencing of coding DNA sequences for SNP discovery in non-model species

Daniel W. Förster, James K. Bull, Dorina Lenz, Marijke Autenrieth, Johanna L.A. Paijmans, Robert H.S. Kraus, Carsten Nowak, Helmut Bayerl, Ralph Kuehn, Alexander P. Saveljev, Magda Sindičić, Michael Hofreiter, Krzysztof Schmidt, Joerns Fickel, Johanna L. A. Paijmans & Robert H. S. Kraus
Targeted capture coupled with high throughput sequencing can be used to gain information about nuclear sequence variation at hundreds to thousands of loci. Divergent reference capture makes use of molecular data of one species to enrich target loci in other (related) species. This is particularly valuable for non-model organisms, for which often no a priori knowledge exists regarding these loci. Here, we have used targeted capture to obtain data for 809 nuclear coding DNA sequences...

Carnivores tend to exhibit a lack of (or less pronounced) genetic structure at continental scales in both a geographic and temporal sense using various mitochondrial DNA markers on modern and/or ancient specimens. This tends to confound the identification of refugial areas and post-glacial colonization patterns in this group. In this study we used Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) to reconstruct the phylogeographic history of a widespread carnivore, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes), in Europe by investigating broad-scale patterns...

Sidorovich, Ihor Dykyy, Josip Kusak, Elena Tsingarska, Ilpo Kojola, Alexandros A. Karamanlidis, Aivars Ornicans, Vladimir A. Lobkov, Vitalii P. Dumenko & Sylwia D. Czarnomska
European wolves (Canis lupus) show population genetic structure in the absence of geographic barriers, and across relatively short distances for this highly mobile species. Additional information on the location of and divergence between population clusters is required, particularly because wolves are currently recolonizing parts of Europe. We evaluated genetic structure in 177 wolves from 11 countries using over 67K single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci. The results supported previous findings of an isolated Italian population with...

Data from: Identifying refugia from climate change using coupled ecological and genetic data in a transitional Mediterranean-temperate tree species

Martina Temunović, Nathalie Frascaria-Lacoste, Jozo Franjić, Zlatko Satovic & Juan Fernández-Manjarrés
Populations occurring in areas of overlap between the current and future distribution of a species are particularly important because they can represent “refugia from climate change”. We coupled ecological and range-wide genetic variation data to detect such areas and to evaluate the impacts of habitat suitability changes on the genetic diversity of the transitional Mediterranean-temperate tree Fraxinus angustifolia. We sampled and genotyped 38 natural populations comprising 1006 individuals from across Europe. We found the highest...

Silva, Marco Galaverni, Zhenxin Fan, Peter Marx, Belen Lorente-Galdos, Holly Beale, Oscar Ramirez, Farhad Hormozdiari, Can Alkan, Carles Vilà, Kevin Squire, Eli Geffen, Josip Kusak, Adam R. Boyko, Heidi G. Parker, Clarence Lee, Vasisht Tadigotla, Adam Siepel, Carlos D. Bustamante, Timothy T. Harkins … & John Novembre
To identify genetic changes underlying dog domestication and reconstruct their early evolutionary history, we generated high-quality genome sequences from three gray wolves, one from each of the three putative centers of dog domestication, two basal dog lineages (Basenji and Dingo) and a golden jackal as an outgroup. Analysis of these sequences supports a demographic model in which dogs and wolves diverged through a dynamic process involving population bottlenecks in both lineages and post-divergence gene flow....

Data from: A computational method for sharp interface advection

Johan Roenby, Henrik Bredmose & Hrvoje Jasak
We devise a numerical method for passive advection of a surface, such as the interface between two incompressible fluids, across a computational mesh. The method is called isoAdvector, and is developed for general meshes consisting of arbitrary polyhedral cells. The algorithm is based on the volume of fluid (VOF) idea of calculating the volume of one of the fluids transported across the mesh faces during a time step. The novelty of the isoAdvector concept consists...

Conservation genomic analysis of the Croatian indigenous Black Slavonian and Turopolje pig breeds

Boris Lukic, Maja Ferenčaković, Dragica Šalamon, Mato Čačić, Vesna Orehovački, Laura Iacolina, Ino Curik & Vlatka Cubric-Curik
The majority of the nearly 400 existing local pig breeds are adapted to specific environments and human needs. The demand for large production quantities and the industrialized pig production have caused a rapid decline of many local pig breeds in recent decades. Black Slavonian pig and Turopolje pig, the latter highly threatened, are the two Croatian local indigenous breeds typically grown in extensive or semi-intensive systems. In order to guide a long-term breeding program to...

Data from: Candidate gene SNP variation in floodplain populations of pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.) near the species' southern range margin: weak differentiation yet distinct associations with water availability

Martina Temunović, Pauline Garnier-Géré, Maja Morić, Jozo Franjić, Mladen Ivanković & Arndt Hampe
Populations residing near species' low-latitude range margins (LLM) often occur in warmer and drier environments than those in the core range. Thus, their genetic composition could be shaped by climatic drivers that differ from those occurring at higher latitudes, resulting in potentially adaptive variants of conservation value. Such variants could facilitate the adaptation of populations from other portions of the geographic range to similar future conditions anticipated under ongoing climate change. However, very few studies...

Free in-plane and out-of-plane vibrations of rotating thin ring based on the toroidal shell theory

I. SENJANOVIĆ, I. Ćatipović, N. Alujević, D. Čakmak & N. Vladimir
In this paper rigorous formulae for natural frequencies of in-plane and out-of-plane free vibrations of a rotating ring are derived. An in-plane vibration mode of the ring is characterised by coupled flexural and extensional deformations, whereas an out-of-plane mode is distinguished by coupled flexural and torsional deformations. The expressions for natural frequencies are derived from a generalised toroidal shell theory. For the in-plane vibrations, the ring is considered to be a short top segment of...

Linking micro and macroevolution of head shape in an island radiation

Maxime Taverne, Hugo Dutel, Michael Fagan, Anamaria Štambuk, Duje Lisičić, Zoran Tadić, Anne-Claire Fabre & Anthony Herrel
Phenotypic traits have been shown to evolve in response to variation in the environment. However, the evolutionary processes underlying the emergence of phenotypic diversity can typically only be understood at the population level. Consequently, how subtle phenotypic differences at the intraspecific level can give rise to larger-scale changes in performance and ecology remains poorly understood. We here tested for the covariation between ecology, bite force, jaw muscle architecture, and the three-dimensional shape of the cranium...

High-density genomic characterization of native Croatian sheep breeds

Ivana Drzaic, Ino Curik, Boris Lukic, Mario Shihabi, Meng-Hua Li, Juha Kantanen, Salvatore Mastrangelo, Elena Ciani, Johannes A. Lenstra & Vlatka Cubric-Curik
A recent comprehensive genomic analysis based on 50K SNP profiles has shown that the regional Balkan sheep populations have considerable genetic overlap but are distinctly different from surrounding breeds. All eight Croatian sheep breeds were represented by a small number of individuals per breed. Here, we genotyped 220 individuals representing the native Croatian sheep breeds (Istrian Sheep, Krk Island Sheep, Cres Island Sheep, Rab Island Sheep, Lika Pramenka, Pag Island Sheep, Dalmatian Pramenka, Dubrovnik Sheep)...

Population genetic structure of wolves in the northwestern Dinaric-Balkan region

Dragana Šnjegota, Astrid Vik Stronen, Barbara Boljte, Duško Ćirović, Mihajla Djan, Djuro Huber, Maja Jelenčič, Marjeta Konec, Josip Kusak & Tomaž Skrbinšek
The Balkan Peninsula and the Dinaric Mountains possess extraordinary biodiversity and support one of the largest and most diverse wolf (Canis lupus) populations in Europe. Results obtained with diverse genetic markers show west-east substructure, also seen in various other species, despite the absence of obvious barriers to movement. However, the spatial extent of the genetic clusters remains unresolved, and our aim was to combine fine-scale sampling with population and spatial genetic analyses to improve resolution...
