Data from: Rapid evolutionary responses of life history traits to different experimentally-induced pollution in Caenorhabditis elegans

Morgan Dutilleul, Jean-Marc Bonzom, Catherine Lecomte, Benoit Goussen, Fabrice Daian, Simon Galas & Denis Réale
Background Anthropogenic disturbances can lead to intense selection pressures on traits and very rapid evolutionary changes. Evolutionary responses to environmental changes, in turn, reflect changes in the genetic structure of the traits, accompanied by a reduction of evolutionary potential of the populations under selection. Assessing the effects of pollutants on the evolutionary responses and on the genetic structure of populations is thus important to understanding the mechanisms that entail specialization to novel environmental conditions or...

A database of radionuclide biological half-life values for wildlife

N.A. Beresford, K. Beaugelin-Seiller, C. Wells, S. Vives-Lynch, J. Vives I Batlle, M.D. Wood, K. Tagami, A. Real, J. Burgos, S. Fesenko, M. Cujic, A. Kryshev, N. Pachal, B.S. Su, C.L. Barnett, S. Uchida, T. Hinton, J. Mihalík, K. Stark, C. Willrodt & J.S. Chaplow
Data comprise biological and ecological half-life values for marine, freshwater, terrestrial and riparian organisms. The database includes 1908 biological half-life values for 52 elements across a range of wildlife groups (marine, freshwater, terrestrial and riparian). The compilation of values from a range of sources was conducted by an international working group under the auspices of an International Atomic Energy Agency programme.

Data from: Pollution breaks down the genetic architecture of life history traits in Caenorhabditis elegans

Morgan Dutilleul, Benoit Goussen, Jean-Marc Bonzom, Simon Galas & Denis Réale
When pollution occurs in an environment, populations present suffer numerous negative and immediate effects on their life history traits. Their evolutionary potential to live in a highly stressful environment will depend on the selection pressure strengths and on the genetic structure, the trait heritability, and the genetic correlations between them. If expression of this structure changes in a stressful environment, it becomes necessary to quantify these changes to estimate the evolutionary potential of the population...
