Bird community data from Wallacea biogeographic region collected 2018-2020

S.L. Mitchell, D.P. Edwards, R.W. Martin, A. Kastanya, A. Karja, P.G. Akbar, K. Jordan, T. Martin, J. Supriatna, N. Winarni, Z.G. Davies & M.J. Struebig
Bird community data from fixed point count stations generated by experienced ornithologists in Borneo and the Wallacean islands of Sulawesi (Buton), Seram, Buru, Talaud and Sangihe. Bird surveys were undertaken between 2016 and 2020, with work on any given island lasting ~3 months, except for Borneo where surveys were undertaken across 3 years (2014 – 2016). Surveys were repeated four times at each site on Sulawesi (Buton), Seram, Buru and once each on Talaud and...

Emotions and Complex Social Problems (Turkey)

, Elizabeth Summerell, Karolina Dyduch-Hazar & Meghann Matthews
Apologies can improve intergroup attitudes in a number of ways such as fostering forgiveness, changing attitudes towards the outgroup after an apology has been given, and restoring trust (for a review, see Blatz & Philpot, 2010). However, there are many psychological barriers experienced by transgressors hindering their willingness to offer an apology, including: Low concern for the victim or relationship, perceived threat to the transgressor’s self-image, and perceived apology ineffectiveness (Schumann, 2018). Humility may be...

A patch-dynamic metacommunity perspective on the persistence of mutualistic and antagonistic bipartite networks

Jinbao Liao, Daniel Bearup & Giovanni Strona
The structure of interactions between species within a community plays a key role in maintaining biodiversity. Previous studies have found that the effects of these structures might substantially differ depending on interaction type, for example, a highly connected and nested architecture stabilizes mutualistic communities, while the stability of antagonistic communities is enhanced in modular and weakly connected structures. Here we show that, when network dynamics are modelled using a patch-dynamic metacommunity framework, the qualitative differences...

Microclimate-driven trends in spring-emergence phenology in a temperate reptile (Vipera berus): Evidence for a potential 'climate trap'?

Rebecca Turner & Ilya Maclean
Climate change will increase the exposure of organisms to higher temperatures, but can also drive phenological shifts that alter their susceptibility to conditions at the onset of breeding cycles. Organisms rely on climatic cues to time annual life-cycle events, but the extent to which climate change has altered cue reliability remains unclear. Here, we examine the risk of a ‘climate trap’ – a climatically-driven desynchronisation of the cues that determine life-cycle events and fitness later...

Exploring the use of moral reframing

Aaron Martin & Roger Giner-Sorolla
Moral reframing has been put forward as a tool for people to use to gather support on policy issues from politically (and ideologically) dissimilar others. Essentially, moral reframing utilises wording/arguments that tap into the target audience’s morality to persuade them to support policies/positions they typically wouldn’t otherwise. As an example, in the US, one could morally reframe the issue of pro-environmentalism with wording/arguments about patriotism and purity to sway ideologically conservative Americans to show more...

Edge effects and vertical stratification of aerial insectivorous bats across the interface of primary-secondary Amazonian rainforest

Natalie Yoh, James Clarke, Adrià López-Baucells, Maria Mas, Paulo E.D. Bobrowiec, Ricardo Rocha & Christoph F.J. Meyer
Edge effects - abiotic and biotic changes associated with habitat boundaries - are key drivers of community change in fragmented landscapes. Their influence is heavily modulated by matrix composition. With over half of the world’s tropical forests predicted to become forest edge by the end of the century, it is paramount that conservationists gain a better understanding of how tropical biota is impacted by edge gradients. Bats comprise a large fraction of tropical mammalian fauna...
