Data from: Resolving relationships among the megadiverse butterflies and moths with a novel pipeline for Anchored Phylogenomics

Jesse W. Breinholt, Chandra Earl, Alan R. Lemmon, Emily Moriarty Lemmon, Lei Xiao & Akito Y. Kawahara
The advent of next-generation sequencing technology has allowed for the collection of large portions of the genome for phylogenetic analysis. Hybrid enrichment and transcriptomics are two techniques that leverage next-generation sequencing and have shown much promise. However, methods for processing hybrid enrichment data are still limited. We developed a pipeline for anchored hybrid enrichment (AHE) read assembly, orthology determination, contamination screening, and data processing for sequences flanking the target “probe” region. We apply this approach...

Data from: Climate change and body size shift in Mediterranean bivalve assemblages: unexpected role of biological invasions

Rafał Nawrot, Paolo G. Albano, Devapriya Chattopadhyay & Martin Zuschin
Body size is a synthetic functional trait determining many key ecosystem properties. Reduction in average body size has been suggested as one of the universal responses to global warming in aquatic ecosystems. Climate change, however, coincides with human-enhanced dispersal of alien species and can facilitate their establishment. We address effects of species introductions on the size structure of recipient communities using data on Red Sea bivalves entering the Mediterranean Sea through the Suez Canal. We...

Data from: Population structure of a widespread bat (Tadarida brasiliensis) in an island system

Kelly A. Speer, Brandi Jo Petronio, Nancy B. Simmons, Rebecca Richey, Kristin Magrini, J. Angel Soto-Centeno & David L. Reed
Dispersal is a driving factor in the creation and maintenance of biodiversity, yet little is known about the effects of habitat variation and geography on dispersal and population connectivity in most mammalian groups. Bats of the family Molossidae are fast-flying mammals thought to have potentially high dispersal ability, and recent studies have indicated gene flow across hundreds of kilometers in continental North American populations of the Brazilian free-tailed bat, Tadarida brasiliensis. We examined the population...

Data from: Comparative transcriptomic analysis of the evolution and development of flower size in Saltugilia (Polemoniaceae)

Jacob B. Landis, Douglas E. Soltis & Pamela S. Soltis
Background: Flower size varies dramatically across angiosperms, representing innovations over the course of >130 million years of evolution and contributing substantially to relationships with pollinators. However, the genetic underpinning of flower size is not well understood. Saltugilia (Polemoniaceae) provides an excellent non-model system for extending the genetic study of flower size to interspecific differences that coincide with variation in pollinators. Results: Using targeted gene capture methods, we infer phylogenetic relationships among all members of Saltugilia...
