Data from: Feedback between environment and traits under selection in a seasonal environment: consequences for experimental evolution

Dorian Collot, Thibault Nidelet, Johan Ramsayer, Olivier Martin, Sylvie Méléard, Christine Dillmann, Delphine Sicard, Judith Legrand & Olivier C. Martin
Batch cultures are frequently used in experimental evolution. Even though they are generally considered to simply drive a growth rate increase, traits evolution can be more complex. Indeed, recurrent batches form a seasonal environment as different phases repeat periodically and different traits can be under selection in the different seasons. Moreover, during culture the impact of organisms on the environment is important since the system is closed. Thus, the study of adaptation should take into...

Data from: Multiple infections, relatedness and virulence in the anther-smut fungus castrating Saponaria plants

Multiple infections (co-occurrence of multiple pathogen genotypes within an individual host) can have important impacts on diseases. Relatedness among pathogens can affect the likelihood of multiple infections and their consequences through kin selection. Previous studies on the castrating anther-smut fungus Microbotryum lychnidis-dioicae have shown that multiple infections occur in its host plant Silene latifolia. Relatedness was high among fungal genotypes within plants, which could result from competitive exclusion between unrelated fungal genotypes, from population structure...

Data from: Arrival date and microorganisms in barn swallows

Zaid Al Rubaiee, H. Al Murayati & Anders Pape Moller
Migration between breeding sites and winter quarters constitute a major life history strategy in birds. The benefits of such migrations must at least equal the costs for such behavior to evolve and be maintained. We tested whether there was a relationship between abundance and diversity of microorganisms on nest lining feathers and timing of arrival by barn swallows Hirundo rustica. Nest lining feathers are chosen and transported by adult barn swallows to their nests just...

Data from: Predation and nutrients drive population declines in breeding waders

Anders P. Møller, Ole Thorup & Karsten Laursen
Allee effects are defined as a decline in per capita fitness at low population density. We hypothesized that predation reduces population size of breeding waders and thereby the efficiency of predator deterrence, while total nitrogen through its effects on primary and secondary productivity increases population size. Therefore, nest predation could have negative consequences for population size because nest failure generally results in breeding dispersal and hence reduced local population density. To test these predictions we...
