Data from: Mechanical feedback and robustness of apical constrictions in Drosophila embryo ventral furrow formation

Michael C. Holcomb, Guo-Jie Jason Gao, Mahsa Servati, Dylan Schneider, Presley K. McNeely, Jeffrey H. Thomas & Jerzy Blawzdziewicz
Formation of the ventral furrow in the Drosophila embryo relies on the apical constriction of cells in the ventral region to produce bending forces that drive tissue invagination. Recently [J Phys Condens Matter. 2016;28(41):414021], we observed that apical constrictions during the initial phase of ventral furrow formation produce elongated patterns of cellular constriction chains prior to invagination, and argued that these are indicative of tensile stress feedback. Here, we quantitatively analyze the constriction patterns preceding...

Coordination of leaf economics traits within the family of the world’s fastest growing plants (Lemnaceae)

Hidehiro Ishizawa, Yusuke Onoda, Kaoru Kitajima, Masashi Kuroda, Daisuke Inoue & Michihiko Ike
The duckweed family (Lemnaceae) is a group of free-floating aquatic plants with bodies consisting of single floating fronds that multiply clonally. Although they are known to have the fastest relative growth rate (RGR) among higher plants, their functional trait coordination in relation to within-family variation of RGR is poorly understood. We tested how duckweed species fit within the trait covariation patterns known as the worldwide leaf economics spectrum (LES). To this end, several functional traits...

Age-specific habitat preference, carrying capacity, and landscape structure determine the response of population spatial variability to fishing-driven age truncation

Hsiao-Hang Tao, Gaël Dur, Po-Ju Ke, Sami Souissi & Chih-Hao Hsieh
1. Understanding the mechanisms underlying spatial variability of exploited fish is critical for the sustainable management of fish stocks. Empirical studies suggest that size-selective fishing can elevate fish population spatial variability (i.e., more heterogeneous distribution) through age truncation, making the population less resilient to changing environment. However, species differ in how their spatial variability respond to age truncation and the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. 2. We hypothesize that age-specific habitat preference, together with environmental carrying...
