Data from: Cascading effects of a disease outbreak in a remote protected area

Disease outbreaks induced by humans increasingly threaten wildlife communities worldwide. Like predators, pathogens can be key top-down forces in ecosystems, initiating trophic cascades that may alter food webs. An outbreak of mange in a remote Andean protected area caused a dramatic population decline in a mammalian herbivore (the vicuña), creating conditions to test the cascading effects of disease on the ecological community. By comparing a suite of ecological measurements to pre-disease baseline records, we demonstrate...

Transcontinental retroarc sediment routing controlled by subduction geometry and climate change (Central and Southern Andes, Argentina)

Eduardo Garzanti , Tomas Capaldi , Giovanni Vezzoli , Mara Limonta & Numa Sosa
Central Argentina from the Pampean flat-slab segment to northern Patagonia (27-41°S) represents a classic example of a broken retroarc basin with strong tectonic and climatic control on fluvial sediment transport. In this provenance study, we combine framework petrography and heavy-mineral data to trace multistep dispersal of volcaniclastic detritus first eastwards across central Argentina for up to ~1500 km and next northwards for nearly another 1000 km along the Atlantic coast. Compositional signatures reflect different tectono-stratigraphic...
