Data from: Climatic and vegetational drivers of insect beta diversity at the continental scale

Douglas Chesters, Philip Beckschäfer, Michael Orr, Sarah Adamowicz, Kwok-Pan Chun & Chao-Dong ZHU
Aim We construct a framework for mapping pattern and drivers of insect diversity at the continental scale and use it to test whether and which environmental gradients drive insect beta diversity. Location Global; North and Central America; Western Europe. Time period 21st century. Major taxa studied Insects. Methods An informatics system was developed to integrate terrestrial data on insects with environmental parameters. We mined repositories of data for distribution, climatic data were retrieved (WorldClim), and...

The family Ampullariidae includes both aquatic and amphibious apple snails. They are an emerging model for evolutionary studies due to the high diversity, ancient history and wide geographical distribution. Insight into drivers of ampullariid evolution is hampered, however, by the lack of genomic resources. Here we report the genomes of four ampullariids spanning the Old World (Lanistes nyassanus) and New World (Pomacea canaliculata, Pomacea maculata and Marisa cornuarietis) clades. The ampullariid genomes have conserved ancient...
