Life history, wing morphology and reproductive output of Pararge aegeria L. on drought stressed host plants

M. Gibbs, H. Van Dyck & C. J. Breuker
This dataset contains information on life history, wing morphological and reproductive traits of Pararge aegeria (L.). The data was collected from an eco-evolutionary study examining how male and female Pararge aegeria from woodland and agricultural landscape populations were affected by development on drought stressed host plants. The data of life history cover total development time and sex of the studied species. The data of wing morphology include total development time, sex, wing loading, the mean...

Data from: The Urban Heat Island and its spatial scale dependent impact on survival and development in butterflies of different thermal sensitivity

Aurélien Kaiser, Thomas Merckx & Hans Van Dyck
Climate alteration is one of the most cited ecological consequences of urbanization. However, the magnitude of this impact is likely to vary with spatial scale. We investigated how this alteration affects the biological fitness of insects, which are especially sensitive to ambient conditions and well-suited organisms to study urbanization-related changes in phenotypic traits. We monitored temperature and relative air humidity in wooded sites characterized by different levels of urbanization in the surroundings. Using a split-brood...

Data from: Molecular phylogeny of Squaliformes and first occurrence of bioluminescence in sharks

Nicolas Straube, Chenhong Li, Julien M. Claes, Shannon Corrigan & Gavin J. P. Naylor
Background: Squaliform sharks represent approximately 27 % of extant shark diversity, comprising more than 130 species with a predominantly deep-dwelling lifestyle. Many Squaliform species are highly specialized, including some that are bioluminescent, a character that is reported exclusively from Squaliform sharks within Chondrichthyes. The interfamiliar relationships within the order are still not satisfactorily resolved. Herein we estimate the phylogenetic interrelationships of a generic level sampling of “squaloid” sharks and closely related taxa using aligned sequences...

Data from: Multicollinearity in spatial genetics: separating the wheat from the chaff using commonality analyses

Jerome G. Prunier, Marc Colyn, Kim F. Nimon, Xavier Legendre & Marie Christine Flamand
Direct gradient analyses in spatial genetics provide unique opportunities to describe the inherent complexity of genetic variation in wildlife species and are the object of many methodological developments. However, multicollinearity among explanatory variables are a systemic issue in multivariate regression analyses and are likely to cause serious difficulties in properly interpreting results of direct gradient analyses, with the risk of erroneous conclusions, misdirected research and inefficient or counter-productive conservation measures. Using simulated datasets along with...

Data from: Cooperation-mediated plasticity in dispersal and colonization

Staffan Jacob, Priscilla Wehi, Jean Clobert, Delphine Legrand, Nicolas Schtickzelle, Michele Huet & Alexis Chaine
Kin selection theory predicts that costly cooperative behaviors evolve most readily when directed toward kin. Dispersal plays a controversial role in the evolution of cooperation: dispersal decreases local population relatedness and thus opposes the evolution of cooperation, but limited dispersal increases kin competition and can negate the benefits of cooperation. Theoretical work has suggested that plasticity of dispersal, where individuals can adjust their dispersal decisions according to the social context, might help resolve this paradox...

Data on flight-induced maternal effects and offspring performance on drought stressed plants in the Speckled Wood butterfly, Pararge aegeria

M. Gibbs, H. Van Dyck & C. Breuker
This dataset contains maternal reproductive output data, embryonic development data and offspring performance data for the Speckled Wood butterfly, Pararge aegeria. The data were collected from a laboratory experiment testing the hypothesis that repeat periods of intensive flight during female oviposition affects egg provisioning and reduces offspring performance when larval development occurs on drought stressed host plants. The experiment involved stimulating female butterflies to fly for 5 minutes for 3 periods during oviposition; removing eggs...

Redox controls RecA protein activity via reversible oxidation of its methionine residues

Benjamin Ezraty, Camille Henry, Frederic Barras, Laurent Loiseau, Alexandra Vergnes, Didier Vertommen, Angela Mérida-Floriano, Sindhu Chitteni-Pattu, Elizabeth Anne Wood, Josep Casadesús & Michael M. Cox
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) cause damage to DNA and proteins. The RecA protein plays a central role in the bacterial response to DNA damage. Here we report that RecA itself is also targeted by ROS. In vivo consequences of RecA oxidation include defects in SOS induction, DNA repair efficiency, and P1 transduction. In vitro, oxidized RecA fails to display ATPase activity, DNA strand exchange capacity and formation of nucleofilaments. Consistently, mass spectrometry analysis of oxidized...

Kinematics and EMG to show integration of proprioceptive and visual feedback during online control of reaching

Shoko Kasuga, Frédéric Crevecoeur, Kevin Cross & Stephen Scott
Visual and proprioceptive feedback both contribute to optimal perceptual decisions, but it remains unknown how these feedback signals are integrated together or consider factors such as delays and variance during online control. We investigated this question by having participants reach to a target with randomly applied mechanical and/or visual disturbances. We observed that the presence of visual feedback during a mechanical disturbance did not increase the size of the muscle response significantly but did decrease...

Bram Van Moorter, Ilkka Kivimäki, Manuela Panzacchi & Marco Saerens
Demonstration of the workflow and supplementary information on the randomized shortest paths framework for "Defining and quantifying effective connectivity of landscapes for species’ movements" by Van Moorter B, Kivimäki I, Panzacchi M, Saerens M. (2021) in Ecography 44(6):1–15. Ecosystem functioning depends on multiple successful interactions, many supported by individual movements. The degree to which the landscape allows these interactions to take place has been referred to as ‘effective connectivity' (EC). Many of the cumulative impacts...

Aimer et le dire

Nathalie Frogneux
How to speak about love even today? How to tell this experience in first person that nobody can avoid? If literature and poetry clearly describe better the meanders and the richness of the feelings of love than philosophy, the latter can clarify what such a broad notion covers. However, it must avoid two pitfalls, technicality and cynicism, which risk destroying its object, and make itself available to the elucidation of the forms of love in...

Data from: A shared numerical magnitude representation evidenced by the distance effect in frequency-tagging EEG

Cathy Marlair, Virginie Crollen & Aliette Lochy
Humans can effortlessly abstract numerical information from various codes and contexts. However, whether the access to the underlying magnitude information relies on common or distinct brain representations remains highly debated. Here, we recorded electrophysiological responses to periodic variation of numerosity (every five items) occurring in rapid streams of numbers presented at 6Hz in randomly varying codes – Arabic digits, number words, canonical dot patterns and finger configurations. Results demonstrated that numerical information was abstracted and...

Reward-dependent selection of feedback gains impact rapid motor decisions

Antoine De Comite, Frédéric Crevecoeur & Philippe Lefèvre
Target reward influences motor planning strategies through modulation of movement vigor. Considering current theories of sensorimotor control suggesting that movement planning consists in selecting a goal-directed control strategy, we sought to investigate the influence of reward on feedback control. Here we explored this question in three human reaching experiments. First, we altered the explicit reward associated with the goal target and found an overall increase in feedback gains for higher target rewards, highlighted by larger...

Data from: Limited indirect fitness benefits of male group membership in a lekking species

Christophe Lebigre, Rauno V. Alatalo, Carl D. Soulsbury, Jacob Höglund & Heli Siitari
In group living species, individuals may gain the indirect fitness benefits characterising kin selection when groups contain close relatives. However, tests of kin selection have primarily focused on cooperatively breeding and eusocial species, whereas its importance in other forms of group living remains to be fully understood. Lekking is a form of grouping where males display on small aggregated territories, which females then visit to mate. As females prefer larger aggregations, territorial males might gain...

Data from: Anthropogenic host plant expansion leads a nettle-feeding butterfly out of the forest: consequences for larval survival and developmental plasticity in adult morphology

Thomas Merckx, Mélanie Serruys & Hans Van Dyck
Recent anthropogenic eutrophication has meant that hostplants of nettle-feeding insects became quasi-omnipresent in fertile regions of Western Europe. However, hostplant resource quality – in terms of microclimate and nutritional value – may vary considerably between the ‘original’ forest habitat and ‘recent’ agricultural habitat. Here, we compared development in both environmental settings using a split-brood design, so as to explore to what extent larval survival and adult morphology in the nettle-feeding butterfly Aglais urticae are influenced...

Data from: Transcriptome dynamics of the stomatal lineage: birth, amplification, and termination of a self-renewing population

Jessika Adrian, Jessica Chang, Catherine E. Ballenger, Bastiaan O. R. Bargmann, Julien Alassimone, Kelli A. Davies, On Sun Lau, Juliana L. Matos, Charles Hachez, Amy Lanctot, Anne Vatén, Kenneth D. Birnbaum & Dominique C. Bergmann
Developmental transitions can be described in terms of morphology and the roles of individual genes, but also in terms of global transcriptional and epigenetic changes. Temporal dissections of transcriptome changes, however, are rare for intact, developing tissues. We used RNA sequencing and microarray platforms to quantify gene expression from labeled cells isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting to generate cell-type-specific transcriptomes during development of an adult stem-cell lineage in the Arabidopsis leaf. We show that regulatory...

Data from: Overyielding in young tree plantations is driven by local complementarity and selection effects related to shade tolerance

Thomas Van De Peer, Kris Verheyen, Quentin Ponette, Nuri Nurlaila Setiawan & Bart Muys
1. Overyielding in mixed-species forests has been demonstrated in a vast body of literature, and the focus of functional biodiversity research is now shifting towards a mechanistic understanding of these observations. 2. We explored diversity-productivity relationships (DPRs) at two sites of a large-scale tree diversity experiment, with benign (Zed) and harsh (Ged) environmental conditions for plantation establishment. Additive partitioning methodologies were adopted to detect phenomenological patterns in the productivity data, and the trait structure of...
