Multiple tissue-specific epigenetic alterations regulate persistent gene expression changes following developmental DES exposure in mouse reproductive tissues

Tanner B. Jefferson, Tianyuan Wang, Wendy N. Jefferson, Yin Li, Katherine J. Hamilton, Paul A. Wade, Carmen J. Williams & Kenneth S. Korach
Clinically, developmental exposure to the endocrine disrupting chemical, diethylstilboestrol (DES), results in long-term male and female infertility. Experimentally, developmental exposure to DES results in abnormal reproductive tract phenotypes in male and female mice. Previously, we reported that neonatal DES exposure causes ERα-mediated aberrations in the transcriptome and in DNA methylation in seminal vesicles (SVs) of adult mice. However, only a subset of DES-altered genes could be explained by changes in DNA methylation. We hypothesized that...

Using unoccupied aerial vehicles to estimate availability and group size error for aerial surveys of coastal dolphins

Alexander M Brown, Simon J Allen, Nat Kelly & Amanada J Hodgson
Aerial surveys are frequently used to estimate the abundance of marine mammals, but their accuracy is dependent upon obtaining a measure of the availability of animals for visual detection. Existing methods for characterizing availability have limitations and do not necessarily reflect true availability. Here, we present a method of using small, vessel‐launched, multi‐rotor Unoccupied Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or drones) to collect video of dolphins to characterize availability and investigate errors surrounding group size estimates. We...

The substantiveness of socioeconomic school compositional effects in Australia: measurement error and the relationship with academic composition

Michael G. Sciffer, Laura B. Perry & Andrew McConney
Abstract This study examines the effect of school socioeconomic composition on student achievement growth in Australian schooling, and its relationship with academic composition utilising the National Assessment Program—Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) dataset. Previous research has found that school composition predicts a range of schooling outcomes. A critique of school compositional research has been that measurement error may have biased findings of compositional effects. Prior studies have found that socioeconomic compositional effect sizes are small when...

Financial risk protection against noncommunicable diseases: trends and patterns in Bangladesh

Taslima Rahman, Dominic Gasbarro & Khurshid Alam
Abstract Background Demographic and epidemiological transitions are changing the disease burden from infectious to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in low- and middle-income countries, including Bangladesh. Given the rising NCD-related health burdens and growing share of household out-of-pocket (OOP) spending in total health expenditure in Bangladesh, we compared the country’s trends and socioeconomic disparities in financial risk protection (FRP) among households with and without NCDs. Methods We used data from three recent waves of the Bangladesh Household...

Counting the bodies: estimating the numbers and spatial variation of Australian reptiles, birds and mammals killed by two invasive mesopredators

Alyson Stobo-Wilson, Brett Murphy, Sarah Legge, Hernan Caceres-Escobar, David Chapple, Heather Crawford, Stuart Dawson, Chris Dickman, Tim Doherty, Patricia Fleming, Stephen Garnett, Matthew Gentle, Thomas Newsome, Russell Palmer, Matthew Rees, Euan Ritchie, James Speed, John-Michael Stuart, Andres Suarez-Castro, Eilysh Thompson, Ayesha Tulloch, Jeff Turpin & John Woinarski
Aim: Introduced predators negatively impact biodiversity globally, with insular fauna often most severely affected. Here, we assess spatial variation in the number of terrestrial vertebrates (excluding amphibians) killed by two mammalian mesopredators introduced to Australia, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) and feral cat (Felis catus). We aim to identify prey groups that suffer especially high rates of predation, and regions where losses to foxes and/or cats are most substantial. Location: Australia Methods: We draw information...

Revisions to the Young Schema Questionnaire using Rasch analysis: the YSQ-R

Ozgur Yalcin, Ida Marais, Christopher Lee & Helen Correia
The aim of this study was to refine the YSQ-L3 by identifying the most statistically and clinically appropriate items for each Early Maladaptive Schema (EMS) using Rasch analysis. A Rasch analysis was undertaken on a large sample (N = 838) that included a heterogeneous clinical sample (N = 574) and a smaller non-clinical group (N = 264). Overall, 116 out of 232 items showed misfit across a number of statistical indicators. After the removal of...

Global invasion history of the emerging plant pathogen Phytophthora multivora

Tetyana Tsykun, Simone Prospero, Corine N. Schoebel, Alexander Rea & Treena I. Burgess
Abstract Background: global trade in living plants and plant material has significantly increased the geographic distribution of many plant pathogens. As a consequence, several pathogens have been first found and described in their introduced range where they may cause severe damage on naïve host species. Knowing the center of origin and the pathways of spread of a pathogen is of importance for several reasons, including identifying natural enemies and reducing further spread. Several Phytophthora species...

Signatures of natural selection in a foundation tree along Mediterranean climatic gradients

João Carlos Filipe
Temperature and precipitation regimes are rapidly changing, resulting in forest dieback and extinction events, particularly in Mediterranean-type climates (MTC). Forest management that enhance forests’ resilience is urgently required, however adaptation to climates in heterogeneous landscapes with multiple selection pressures is complex. For widespread trees in MTC we hypothesized that: patterns of local adaptation are associated with climate; precipitation is a stronger factor of adaptation than temperature; functionally related genes show similar signatures of adaptation; and...

Data from: Ontogeny can provide insight into the roles of natural and sexual selection in cricket cuticular hydrocarbon evolution

Leigh W Simmons, Leigh W Simmons, Maxine Lovegrove, Bob Du, Yonglin Ren & Melissa Thomas
The often complex cocktails of hydrocarbon compounds found on the cuticles of insects can serve both naturally and sexually selected functions, contributing to an individual’s ability to withstand water loss and attract mating partners. However, whether natural and sexual selection act synergistically or antagonistically on a species’ cuticular hydrocarbon (CHC) profile remains unclear. Here we examined the ontogeny of the CHC profile in a species of cricket Teleogryllus oceanicus while manipulating humidity during development. We...

Data from: Variation in red fox Vulpes vulpes diet in five continents

Irene Castañeda, Tim S. Doherty, Patricia A. Fleming, Alyson M. Stobo-Wilson, John C. Z. Woinarski & Thomas M. Newsome
Understanding variation in the diet of widely distributed species can help us to predict how they respond to future environmental and anthropogenic changes. We studied the diet of the red fox Vulpes vulpes, one of the world’s most widely distributed carnivores. We compiled dietary data from 217 studies at 276 locations in five continents to assess how fox diet composition varied according to geographic location, climate, anthropogenic impact and sampling method. The diet of foxes...

Maximization of fitness by phenological and phenotypic plasticity in range expanding rabbitfish (Siganidae)

Salvador Zarco-Perello
Global warming is modifying the phenology, life-history traits and biogeography of species around the world. Evidence of these effects have increased over recent decades; however, we still have a poor understanding of the possible outcomes of their interplay across global climatic gradients, hindering our ability to accurately predict the consequences of climate change in populations and ecosystems. We examined the effect that changes in biogeography can have on the life-history traits of two of the...
