Data from: Estimations of linkage disequilibrium, effective population size and ROH-based inbreeding coefficients in Spanish Churra sheep using imputed high-density SNP genotypes

Praveen- Krishna Chitneedi, Juan José Arranz, Aroa Suarez-Vega, Elsa García-Gamez & Beatriz Gutierrez-Gil
In this study, the availability of the Ovine HD SNP BeadChip (HD-chip) and the development of an imputation strategy provided an opportunity to further investigate the extent of linkage disequilibrium (LD) at short distances in the genome of the Spanish Churra dairy sheep breed. A population of 1686 animals, including 16 rams and their half-sib daughters, previously genotyped for the 50K-chip, was imputed to the HD-chip density based on a reference population of 335 individuals....

Data from: Influence of land use and climate on recent forest expansion: a case study in the Eurosiberian-Mediterranean limit of northwest Spain

Jose Manuel Álvarez-Martínez, Susana Suárez-Seoane, Jetse J. Stoorvogel & Estanisao De Luis Calabuig
1. In Mediterranean mountainous areas, forests have expanded in recent decades because traditional management practices have been abandoned or reduced. However, understanding the ecological mechanism behind landscape change is a complex undertaking as the effects of land use may be influenced (reinforced or constrained) by other factors such as climate. 2. We used orthorectified aerial photographs to monitor changes in forest distribution in a set of 20 head-water basins (located in the Cantabrian Mountains of...

Data from: Palaeontology meets metacommunity ecology: The Maastricthian dinosaur fossil record of North America as a case study

Jorge García-Girón, Jani Heino, Janne Alahuhta, Alfio Alessandro Chiarenza & Steve Brusatte
Documenting the patterns and potential associated processes of ancient biotas has always been a central challenge in palaeontology. Over the last decades, intense debate has focused on the organisation of dinosaur–dominated communities, yet no general consensus has been reached on how these communities were organised in a spatial context and if primarily affected by abiotic or biotic agents. Here, we used analytical routines typically applied in metacommunity ecology to provide novel insights into dinosaurian distributions...

Data from: Molecular and morphological perspectives on the circumscription of Carex section Heleoglochin (Cyperaceae)

Ana Molina, Kyong-Sook Chung & Andrew L. Hipp
Vignea is the only monophyletic subgenus in the genus Carex (Cyperaceae), comprising nearly 300 members grouped into 19–28 sections. Molecular studies have demonstrated that most of these sections are polyphyletic. Here, we seek to clarify the relationships among species in section Heleoglochin based on phylogenetic and morphological analyses. We analyzed sequence data using nuclear ribosomal DNA internal and external transcriber spacer regions of 60 representative specimens of sect. Heleoglochin, representing the full geographic range of...

Development and validation of a questionnaire for assessing patients´ perceptions of interprofessional integration in health care

Iris Parra-Vega, Pilar Marqués-Sánchez, José M. Pelayo-Terán & Luis Corral Gudino
The integration of care between primary, secondary, tertiary health care and social care needs to be interprofessional and patient-centered. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a questionnaire for measuring patients’ perception of integration across health care teams and social services. Data for psychometric assessment of our questionnaire were collected from patients who attended at eleven Primary Care Centers and one tertiary referral Hospital in Spain from March to October 2018. The...

Data from: A Western route of prehistoric human migration from Africa into the Iberian Peninsula

Bermudez, Cecilio Barroso-Medina, Ana M.S. Bettencourt, Hugo A. Sampaio, Aurora Grandal-D'Anglade, Antonio Salas, Arturo De Lombera-Hermida, Ramon Fabregas, Manuel Vaquero, Susana Alonso, Maria Lozano, Xavier Rodríguez-Alvarez, Carlos Fernández-Rodríguez, Andrea Manica, Michael Hofreiter & Guido Barbujani
Being at the Western fringe of Europe, Iberia had a peculiar prehistory and a complex pattern of Neolithization. A few studies, all based on modern populations, reported the presence of DNA of likely African origin in this region, generally concluding it was the result of recent gene flow, probably during the Islamic period. Here we provide evidence of much older gene flow from Africa to Iberia by sequencing whole genomes from four human remains from...

Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel β-carboline ester analogues as potential anti-leishmanial agents

Banoth Karan Kumar, Faheem, Rafael Balana Fouce, Estela Melcon-Fernandez, Yolanda Perez-Pertejo Yolanda, Rosa M. Reguera, Nandikolla Adinarayana, K. V. G. Chandra Sekhar, Satheeshvarma Vanaparthi & Sankaranarayan Murugesan
Leishmaniasis is one of today's most neglected diseases. The emergence of new anti-leishmanial therapies emphasizes several study groups funded by the World Health Organization. The present investigation will focus on the research to determine a few new potential derivatives of β-carboline ester derivatives against leishmaniasis. The in-silico predicted ADMET properties of most of the titled compounds are in an acceptable range and having drug like properties. Among all the tested analogs, compound ES-3 (EC50 3.36...

Functional assembly of grassland plant species in native communities in Spain and recipient communities in California

Javier Galán Díaz, Montserrat Vilà, Ingrid Parker & Enrique G. De La Riva
A major aim in invasion ecology is to understand the role of exotic species in plant communities. Whereas most studies have explored the traits of exotic species in the context of the introduced community, functional comparisons of entire assemblages of species in their native and introduced communities have rarely been analysed. Taking advantage of the unidirectional invasion of plant species of European origin (i.e. colonizers) into California, this study aims to investigate the relative importance...

Abstract Background Sepsis is a severe systemic inflammatory response to infections that is accompanied by organ dysfunction and has a high mortality rate in adult intensive care units. Most genetic studies have identified gene variants associated with development and outcomes of sepsis focusing on biological candidates. We conducted the first genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 28-day survival in adult patients with sepsis. Methods This study was conducted in two stages. The first stage was performed...

Data from: Floaters may buffer the extinction risk of small populations: an empirical assessment

Hugo Robles & Carlos Ciudad
The high extinction risk of small populations is commonly explained by reductions in fecundity and breeder survival associated with demographic and environmental stochasticity. However, ecological theory suggests that population extinctions may also arise from reductions in the number of floaters able to replace the lost breeders. This can be particularly plausible under harsh fragmentation scenarios, where species must survive as small populations subjected to severe effects of stochasticity. Using a woodpecker study in fragmented habitats...
