Data from: Plant functional groups mediate drought resistance and recovery in a multi-site grassland experiment

Kathleen A. Mackie, Michaela Zeiter, Juliette M.G. Bloor, Andreas Stampfli & Juliette M. G. Bloor
1. Climate change predictions suggest that summer droughts will become more intense and recurrent in Europe. While drought-induced reductions in grassland primary productivity are well documented, the drivers behind drought resistance (the capacity to withstand change) and recovery (the capacity for recovery of function) of above- and belowground biomass remain poorly understood. 2. Across eight grasslands differing in plant community productivity (CP) we investigated the effects of summer drought on plant and soil microbial variables,...

Data from: Evolution without standing genetic variation: change in transgenerational plastic response under persistent predation pressure

Transgenerational phenotypic plasticity is a fast nongenetic response to environmental modifications that can buffer the effects of environmental stresses on populations. However, little is known about the evolution of plasticity in the absence of standing genetic variation although several nongenetic inheritance mechanisms have now been identified. Here, we monitored the pea aphid transgenerational phenotypic response to ladybird predators (production of winged offspring) during 27 generations of experimental evolution in the absence of initial genetic variation...

Data from: Mental health in individuals with spinal cord injury: the role of socioeconomic conditions and social relationships

Carmen Zürcher, Hannah Tough & Christine Fekete
Objectives: To evaluate socioeconomic inequalities in social relationships, and to assess whether socioeconomic conditions and social relationships are independently related to mental health problems in individuals with a physical disability due to spinal cord injury (SCI). Methods: We analyzed cross-sectional data from 511 individuals with SCI aged over 16 years who participated in the community survey of the Swiss SCI Cohort Study. Indicators for socioeconomic conditions included years of formal education, household income, and financial...
