Data from: Low species turnover of upland Amazonian birds in the absence of physical barriers

Cameron Rutt, Justin Cooper, Christian Andretti, Thiago Costa, Philip Stouffer, Claudeir Vargas, David Luther & Mario Cohn-Haft
Aim: One of the oldest and most powerful ways for ecologists to explain distinct biological communities is to invoke underlying environmental differences. But in hyper-diverse systems, which often display high species richness and low species abundance, these sorts of community comparisons are especially challenging. The classic view for Amazonian birds posits that riverine barriers and habitat specialization determine local and regional community composition. We test the tacit, complementary assumption that similar bird communities should therefore...

Supporting Open Science Data Curation, Preservation, and Access by Libraries

Eric Olson, Nicole Pfeiffer, Bryan Newbold, Reid Boehm, Emily Bongiovanni, Courtney Butler, Brian Cain, Matthew Chandler, Anna Dabrowski, Jennifer Fitzgerald, Carolyn Jackson, Agnes Jasinska, Courtney Kearney, Neggin Keshavarzian, Russell Koonts, Ali Krzton, Young-Joo Lee, Lora Lennertz, Mary Leverance, Laniece Miller, Rohit Patil, Jennifer Patino, Abigail Pennington, Sara Sacks, Mara Sedlins … & Amy Yarnell
Openness in research can lead to greater reproducibility, an accelerated pace of discovery, and decreased redundancy of effort. In addition, open research ensures equitable access to knowledge and the ability for any community to assess, interrogate, and build upon prior work. In order for research to succeed, openness and reproducibility are required. In turn, this requires open infrastructure and distributed access; but few institutions can provide all of these services alone. Providing a trustworthy network...

TOP Guidelines and TOP Factor

Daniel Steger, Eric Olson, Mark Call, Nicole Pfeiffer, Amanda Staller & Alexis Rice
The Transparency and Open Promotion (TOP) Guidelines are eight modular recommendations and standards (with varying levels of stringency) for journals and funders to incentivize open science practices. TOP Factor is a transparent evaluation rubric showing the degree of a journal or funder's implementation of and compliance with TOP Guidelines. Visit cos.io/top to view the TOP Guidelines and for more resources for implementing TOP.

Calcineurin inhibitors in the treatment of primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis: a protocol of systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

Enlai Dai, , Bao Dan & Shuwen Li
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a leading cause of kidney diseases worldwide. The prevalence of FSGS, relative to other glomerular disease diagnoses, seems to be increasing worldwide, and it is a major contributor to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In 2011, McGrogan et al. reported an annual incidence rates of FSGS as 0.2 to 1.8/100, 000 population per year by reviewing literature worldwide.

Cross-Group Threat Transfer

Karina Korostelina
This research seeks to develop a new theory of cross-group threat transfer, which conceptualizes how threats attributed to an outgroup can be transferred to other groups or to a broader social category. To test and further develop this theory, research will be conducted in the United States (U.S.) on two cases. The first case will examines the extent to which symbolic and realistic threats attributed to rioters who engaged in violence surrounding the summer 2020...

Impact of target’s race and gender on judgments of social and moral norm violations.

Malik Boykin, Bertram Malle, Vincent Rice, Boyoung Kim & Salomi Aladia
We are preregistering an initial study intended to start a new research program. This study will help us determine how long the designed study takes, whether stimuli and measures are well received and show reasonable inter-judge agreement, what potential effect sizes might be for questions of interest and therefore what sample sizes are suitable for the first primary study. We are documenting the basic features of the study, some research questions of interest, some hypotheses,...

Mammals adjust diel activity across gradients of urbanization

Travis Gallo, Mason Fidino, Brian Gerber, Adam Ahlers, Julia Angstmann, Max Amaya, Amy Concilio, David Drake, Danielle Gray, Elizabeth Lehrer, Maureen Murray, Travis Ryan, Colleen St. Clair, Carmen Salsbury, Heather Sander, Theodore Stankowich, Jaque Williamson, Amy Belaire, Kelly Simone & Seth Magle
Time is a fundamental component of ecological processes. How animal behavior changes over time has been explored through well-known ecological theories like niche partitioning and predator-prey dynamics. Yet, changes in animal behavior within the shorter 24-hour light-dark cycle have largely gone unstudied. Understanding if an animal can adjust their temporal activity to mitigate or adapt to environmental change has become a recent topic of discussion and is important for effective wildlife management and conservation. While...

Hybridization and low genetic diversity in the endangered Alabama Red-Bellied Turtle (Pseudemys alabamensis)

Ylenia Chiari, Nickolas Moreno, Andrew Heaton, Kaylin Bruening, Emma Milligan, David Nelson & Scott Glaberman
Pseudemys alabamensis is one of the most endangered freshwater turtle species in the United States due to its restricted geographic distribution in coastal Alabama and Mississippi. Populations of P. alabamensis are geographically isolated from one another by land and salt water, which could act as barriers to gene flow. It is currently unknown how differentiated these isolated populations are from one another and whether they have experienced reductions in population size. Previous work found morphological...

Data from: Maintenance of local adaptation despite gene flow in a coastal songbird

Jonathan D. Clark, David A. Luther, Phred M. Benham, Jesus E. Maldonado & Haw Chuan Lim
Adaptation to local environments is common in widespread species and the basis of ecological speciation. The song sparrow (Melospiza melodia) is a widespread, polytypic passerine that occurs in shrubland habitats throughout North America. We examined the population structure of two parapatric subspecies that inhabit different environments: the Atlantic song sparrow (M. m. atlantica), a coastal specialist; and the eastern song sparrow (M. m. melodia), a shrubland generalist. These populations lacked clear mitochondrial population structure, yet...

Does colour impact responses to images in geckos?

Ylenia Chiari, Nathan Katlein, Miranda Ray, Anna Wilkinson, Julien Claude, Maria Kiskowski, Bin Wang & Scott Glaberman
Animals are exposed to different visual stimuli that influence how they perceive and interact with their environment. Visual information such as shape and colour can help the animal detect, discriminate and make appropriate behavioural decisions for mate selection, communication, camouflage, and foraging. In all major vertebrate groups, it has been shown that certain species can discriminate and prefer certain colours and that colours may increase the response to a stimulus. However, since colour is often...

Trust under pressure

Can Zhang, Yulei Rao, Jianxin Wang & Daniel Houser
The impact of time-pressure on pro-social decisions has received substantial recent attention ( Rand et al., 2014, 2012). While the impact of time pressure on trusting decisions has not yet been studied. The purpose of this study is to shed light on the role of time pressure on trust.
