Data from: Mapping of genetic factors that elicit intermale aggressive behavior on mouse chromosome 15: intruder effects and the complex genetic basis

Aki Takahashi, Hiroki Sugimoto, Shogo Kato, Toshihiko Shiroishi & Tsuyoshi Koide
Despite high estimates of the heritability of aggressiveness, the genetic basis for individual differences in aggression remains unclear. Previously, we showed that the wild-derived mouse strain MSM/Ms (MSM) exhibits highly aggressive behaviors, and identified chromosome 15 (Chr 15) as the location of one of the genetic factors behind this escalated aggression by using a panel of consomic strains of MSM in a C57BL/6J (B6) background. To understand the genetic effect of Chr 15 derived from...

Data from: Structural mouthpart interaction evolved already in the earliest lineages of insects

In butterflies, bees, flies and true bugs specific mouthparts are in close contact or even fused to enable piercing, sucking or sponging of particular food sources. The common phenomenon behind these mouthpart types is a complex composed of several consecutive mouthparts which structurally interact during food uptake. The single mouthparts are thus only functional in conjunction with other adjacent mouthparts, which is fundamentally different to biting–chewing. It is, however, unclear when structural mouthpart interaction (SMI)...

Data from: Floral colour change in the eyes of pollinators: testing possible constraints and correlated evolution

Kazuharu Ohashi, Takashi T. Makino & Kentaro Arikawa
1. Many of the ‘adaptive' traits in angiosperm flowers occur only in some species within a clade. One good example of such traits is floral colour change, that is the retention of old, nonreproductive, rewardless, but fully turgid flowers in an altered colour. This trait has been viewed as a plant strategy to enhance distant pollinator attraction while minimizing visits to nonreproductive flowers. Considering that the same scenario appears true for most visually oriented flower...
