Data from: Effects of plant and pollinator traits on the maintenance of a food deceptive species within a plant community

Hungchun Qu, Tal Seifan, Merav Seifan & Hongchun Qu
Model-mimic plant systems are well known. However, the conditions promoting the existence of such systems are still an enigma. We suggest that by focusing on floral similarity between model and mimic, reward levels offered by models, and pollinators' ability to adjust foraging accordingly, the conditions can be better understood. Using spatially-explicit modelling, we examined trait combinations that lead to the survival of deceptive species under a large range of mimic strategies, from Batesian mimicry to...

Data from: Phenotypic effects of the nurse Thylacospermum caespitosum on dependent plant species along regional climate stress gradients

Xingpei Jiang, Richard Michalet, Shuyan Chen, Liang Zhao, Xiangtai Wang, Chenyue Wang, Lizhe An & Sa Xiao
Contrasting phenotypes of alpine cushion species have been recurrently described in several mountain ranges along small-scale topography gradients, with tight competitive phenotypes in stressful convex topography and loose facilitative phenotypes in sheltered concave topography. The consistency of phenotypic effects along large-scale climate stress gradients have been proposed as a test of the likely genetic bases of the differences observed at small-scale. Inversely, plastic phenotypic effects are more likely to vanish at some points along climate...

Data from: Surface modification of poly(vinylidene fluoride) hollow fibre membranes for biogas purification in a gas-liquid membrane contactor system

Pengrui Jin, Chuan Huang, Jiaxiang Li, Yadong Shen & Liao Wang
The wetting of hollow fiber membranes decreases performance of the liquid-gas membrane contactor for CO2 capture in biogas upgrading. To solve this problem, in this work, a poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) hollow fibre membrane for a liquid-gas membrane contactor was coated with a superhydrophobic layer composed of a combination of hydrophobic SiO2 nanoparticles and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) by the method of spray deposition. A rough layer of SiO2 deposited on the PVDF membrane resulted in an enhanced...
