Data from: High parasite infection level in non-native invasive species: it is just a matter of time

Marta Kołodziej-Sobocińska, Marcin Brzeziński, Agnieszka Niemczynowicz & Andrzej Zalewski
The Enemy Release Hypothesis is often used to explain the success of non-native species invasions. Growing evidence indicates that parasite or pathogen species richness increases over time in invasive non-native species; however, this increase should not directly translate into release from enemy pressure as infection intensity of parasites (number of parasites per host) has a more profound impact on host fitness. The changes in intensity of parasitic infections in invasive non-native species have not yet...

Data from: Microsatellite mutation rate in Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus)

Understanding mutation rates can greatly extend the utility of population and conservation genetic analyses. Herein we present an estimate of genome-wide microsatellite mutation rate in Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus) based on parent-offspring transmission patterns. We screened 307 individuals for parentage and mutation-rate analysis applying 43 variable markers. Out of 13,228 allele transfers, 11 mutations were detected, producing a mutation rate of 8.3x10-4 per locus per generation (95%CI: 1.48x10-3, 4.15x10-4). Single-step mutations predominated and there were...

Data from: Wolves at the crossroad: fission-fusion range biogeography in the Western Carpathians and Central Europe

Aim: Population fragmentation represents a leitmotif of conservation biology, but the impact of population reconnection is less well studied. The recent recolonization of large carnivores in Europe is a good model for studying this phenomenon. We aim to show novel data regarding distribution and population genetic structure of the grey wolf in Central Europe, a region considered a frequent crossroad and contact zone of different phylogeographic lineages, in a biogeographic context. Location: Western Carpathians, Central...

Data from: Great tits and the city: distribution of genomic diversity and gene-environment associations along an urbanization gradient

Charles Perrier, Ana Lozano Del Campo, Marta Szulkin, Virginie Demeyrier, Arnaud Gregoire & Anne Charmantier
Urbanization is a growing concern challenging the evolutionary potential of wild populations by reducing genetic diversity and imposing new selection regimes affecting many key fitness traits. However, genomic footprints of urbanization have received little attention so far. Using RAD sequencing, we investigated the genome-wide effects of urbanization on neutral and adaptive genomic diversity in 140 adult great tits Parus major collected in locations with contrasted urbanization levels (from a natural forest to highly urbanized areas...
