Objective: To estimate the prevalence of Joubert syndrome (JS) in Italy applying standards of descriptive epidemiology, and to provide a molecular characterization of the described patients cohort. Methods: We enrolled all patients with a neuroradiologically confirmed diagnosis of JS and resident in Italy in 2018, and calculated age and sex prevalence, assuming a Poisson distribution. We also investigated the correlation between proband chronological age and age at diagnosis, and performed Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis on...

Data from: A pre-Miocene Irano-Turanian cradle: origin and diversification of the species-rich monocot genus Gagea (Liliaceae)

Angela Peterson, Dörte Harpke, Jens Peterson, Alexander Harpke & Lorenzo Peruzzi
The Irano‐Turanian (IT) floristic region is considered an important centre of origin for many taxa. However, there is a lack of studies dealing with typical IT genera that also occur in neighbouring areas. The species-rich monocot genus Gagea Salisb. shows a centre of diversity in IT region and a distribution in adjacent regions, therefore representing a good study object to investigate spatial and temporal relationships among IT region and its neighbouring areas (East-Asia, Euro-Siberia, Himalaya,...

Artificial light at night erases positive interactions across trophic levels

Elena Maggi, Lucia Bongiorni, Debora Fontanini, Antonella Capocchi, Martina Dal Bello, Andrea Giacomelli & Lisandro Benedetti-Cecchi
1. Artificial light at night (ALAN) is one of the most recently recognized sources of anthropogenic disturbance, with potentially severe effects on biological systems that are still to be fully explored. Among marine ecosystems, high shore habitats are those more likely to be impacted by ALAN, due to a more intense exposition to outdoor nocturnal lightings (mostly from lamps along coastal streets and promenades, or within harbors, ports and marinas). 2. By performing in situ...

Propagule composition regulates the success of an invasive seaweed across a heterogeneous seascape

Fabio Bulleri, Ezequiel M. Marzinelli, Sofie Voerman & Paul Gribben
1. Propagule pressure is acknowledged as a key determinant of invasion success. Nonetheless, the role of morphological or physiological attributes of propagules (i.e., their quality) in regulating invader establishment has been little explored. In particular, no study has investigated how the presence of propagules differing in quality within an inoculum influences establishment across heterogeneous landscapes. 2. We experimentally tested the hypothesis that the quality (+Fronds+Rhizoids; +Fronds–Rhizoids; –Fronds+Rhizoids) and the diversity (1, 2, 3 fragment types)...
