Selection for male weapons boosts female fecundity, eliminating sexual conflict in the bulb mite

Bruno Buzatto & Huon Clark
Extreme differences between the sexes are usually explained by intense sexual selection on male weapons or ornaments. Sexually antagonistic genes, with a positive effect on male traits but a negative effect on female fitness, create a negative inter-sexual correlation for fitness (sexual conflict). However, such antagonism might not be apparent if sexually selected male traits are condition-dependent, and condition elevates female fitness. Here we reveal a surprising positive genetic correlation between male weaponry and female...

Mimicry in motion and morphology: do information limitation, trade-offs or compensation relax selection for mimetic accuracy?

Donald McLean & Marie Herberstein
Many animals mimic dangerous or undesirable prey as a defence from predators. We would expect predators to reliably and exclusively avoid animals that closely resemble dangerous prey, yet imperfect mimics are common. There have been many hypotheses suggested to explain imperfect mimicry, but comparative tests across multiple mimicry systems are needed to determine which are applicable, and which—if any—represent general principles of imperfect mimicry. We tested four hypotheses on Australian ant mimics and found support...

Data from: Economics, life history and international trade data for seven turtle species in Malaysia and Indonesian farms

Dalia A. Conde, Simon Kaae Andersen, Johanna Staerk, Elham Kalhor, Daniel J. D. Natusch, Rita Da Silva & Pfau Beate
We collected data on the wildlife trade of seven turtle and tortoise species endemic to Indonesia and Malaysia (Amyda cartilaginea, Batagur borneoensis, Cuora amboinensis, Carettochelys insculpta, Heosemys annandalii, Heosemys grandis, and Heosemys spinosa). We collated data for: the operations and economics of three breeding farms and one ranching facility; species life-history traits; and species international legal trade and confiscation data. We collected data for the facilities (one in Malaysia and three in Indonesia) using field...

A rapid perceptual test of the other-race effect

Daniel Guilbert
This study explores the other-race effect in face recognition, using a paradigm in which two faces are presented very rapidly one after another, and participants decide whether they belong to the same person or two different people.

Stimulating verb and sentence processing with TMS: A systematic review

Effy Ntemou, Roel Jonkers, Frank Burchert, Cheyenne Svaldi & Adrià Rofes
The present systematic review aims to provide an overview of the contributions of TMS in the investigation of verb and sentence processing, as well as to determine whether items with different lexico-semantic or morphosyntactic features are differentially affected by TMS.

Diet shift in a non-anadromous salmon: the effect of length on increased piscivorous feeding and trophic position.

Daniel Johnson & Drew Allen
Trophic ecology via isotope analysis is a functional way to predict the position of a consumer within the ecosystem it inhabits (Post, 2002). For this study, I aim to define trophic position changes and fish predation or piscivorous feeding in relation to size increase in a population of non-anadromous kokanee salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), in the Jo-Jo Lake of south-west Alaska. Previous studies have shown these fish to exhibit planktivorous feeding, with some exceptions (Nelson JS,...

Deletion of actin-associated tropomyosin Tpm3 leads to reduced cell complexity in cultured hippocampal neurons - new insight into the role of the C-terminal region of Tpm3.1

Tamara Tomanic
Files in the storage are related to the project concerning the investigation of Tpm3 gene products and the exploration C-terminus of Tpm3.1 isoform. They are separated into folders that contain .xlsx files with individual data points behind the Main Figures 1-3, 5-7 and 9, as well as Supplemental Figures 1-4 and 6 in the manuscript no. cells-1130025. Where applicable, PG314 corresponds to Tpm3.1FL construct (FL stands for full-length), PG471 to Tpm3.1delta2AA and PG472 to Tpm3.1delta6AA....

Sea snake approaches to divers

Richard Shine, Tim Lynch & Ross Alford
Scuba-divers on tropical coral-reefs often report unprovoked “attacks” by highly venomous Olive sea snakes (Aipysurus laevis). Snakes swim directly towards divers, sometimes wrapping coils around the diver’s limbs and biting. Based on a focal animal observation study of free-ranging Olive sea snakes in the southern Great Barrier Reef, we suggest that these “attacks” are misdirected courtship responses. Approaches to divers were most common during the breeding season (winter) and were by males rather than by...

Dispersal distances of radio-tracked cane toads in French Guiana

Richard Shine, Jayna DeVore & Simon Ducatez
Like most invasive species, cane toads have attracted less research in their native range than in invaded areas. We radio-tracked 34 free-ranging toads in French Guiana, a source region for most invasive populations, across two coastal and two rainforest sites. Coastal toads generally sheltered in pools of fresh or brackish water but nocturnally foraged on beaches, whereas rainforest toads sheltered in forested habitats, moving into open areas at night. Over five days of monitoring, native...

Data from: Go large or go conical: allometric trajectory of an early Cambrian acrotretide brachiopod

Zhiliang Zhang, Timothy Topper, Yanlong Chen, Luke Stroze, Feiyang Chen, Lars Holmer, Glenn Brock & Zhifei Zhang
Acrotretides are extinct micromorphic brachiopods that exhibited considerable morphological variation during their rapid evolution in the early Palaeozoic. The plano-conical shells of acrotretides are distinct in comparison to other brachiopod groups and despite their diversity and abundance in early Palaeozoic communities, their origins, early evolution, life history and phylogeny are poorly understood. Here, we employ advanced geometric morphometrics to quantitatively investigate ontogenetic variation and allometry in the ventral valve of the oldest known acrotretide species...

Innovative Models of Care for Hospitals of the Future

Natalie Roberts
The delivery of hospital care is dramatically changing in the face of new technologies, coupled with increasing social and economic burdens of ageing populations and prevalence of chronic disease.[1, 2] To address the growing challenges, hospitals and governments are experimenting with more cost-effective care alternatives, delivered outside hospitals walls;[3] prioritising greater consumer engagement;[1] and investing in digitised care services.[4] Some hospitals have introduced emerging technologies (e.g., robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), big data analytics) into hospital...

Embryonic heart rate patterns in a wild Australian passerine

Investigating the driving factors that control embryonic heart rate in chestnut-crowned babblers in arid Australia

Assessing the Relationship Between Global Anuran Body Size, Temperature and Call Frequency

Levi Brown & Drew Allen
There has been study to suggest that across animal taxa, dominate call frequency is restricted by temperature and body-size due to the mechanistic nature of call production – particularly in mammals, birds, and anurans. This has previously been predicted using linear modelling. However, little has been done to look specifically at Anurans and how calling frequency relates to body size and ambient temperature and what this means for ecological implications. Therefore, this study aims to...

Sensitive to a T: The effects of non-spatial computer-aided detection cues on user sensitivity in a visual letter search task

Blake Cogle, Hamid Karimi-Rouzbahani, Alexandra Woolgar, Jeremy Wolfe & Anina Rich
Computer-aided detection (CAD) systems generally use a binary cue to indicate a target in an image to an observer (Cunningham, Drew, & Wolfe, 2017). This means that the CAD system provides a marker around (or an arrow pointing towards) any location in an image where the strength of the signal is above a certain threshold and does not provide a marker for those locations where the signal is below the threshold. CAD systems are not...

Larval and metamorph traits of cane toads

Richard Shine, Uditha Wijethunga, Matthew Greenlees & Melanie Elphick
As an invasive organism spreads into a novel environment, it may encounter strong selective pressures to adapt to abiotic challenges. We examined the effect of water temperature during larval life on rates of survival and growth of the early life-history stages of cane toads (Rhinella marina) from two geographic regions (tropical vs. temperate) in the species’ invaded range in eastern Australia. If local adaptation at the southern (cool-climate) invasion front has extended the cold-tolerance of...
