Data from: Agonistic reciprocity is associated with reduced male reproductive success within haremic social networks

Tessa K. Solomon-Lane, Devaleena S. Pradhan, Madelyne C. Willis & Matthew S. Grober
While individual variation in social behaviour is ubiquitous and causes social groups to differ in structure, how these structural differences affect fitness remains largely unknown. We used social network analysis of replicate bluebanded goby (Lythrypnus dalli) harems to identify the reproductive correlates of social network structure. In stable groups, we quantified agonistic behaviour, reproduction and steroid hormones, which can both affect and respond to social/reproductive cues. We identified distinct, optimal social structures associated with different...

Data from: Volatile fatty acid and aldehyde abundances evolve with behavior and habitat temperature in Sceloporus lizards

Stephanie Campos, Jake Pruett, Helena Soini, J. Jaime Zúñiga-Vega, Jay Goldberg, Cuauhcihuatl Vital-García, Milos Novotny, Diana Hews & Emília Martins
Animal signals evolve by striking a balance between the need to convey information through particular habitats and the limitations of what types of signals can most easily be produced and perceived. Here, we present new results from field measures of undisturbed behavior and biochemical analyses of scent marks from 12 species of Sceloporus lizards to explore whether evolutionary changes in chemical composition are better predicted by measures of species behavior , particularly those associated with...

Temporal trends in the burden of non-communicable diseases in countries with the highest malaria burden, 1990–2019: Evaluating the double burden of non-communicable and communicable diseases in epidemiological transition

Zhuo Li, Junyi Shi, Na Li, Minmin Wang, Yinzi Jin & Zhi-jie Zheng
Abstract Background Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are rapidly increasing in sub-Saharan African countries, where 96% of global malaria deaths occur. This study aimed to investigate the disease burden of NCDs in countries with the current highest malaria mortality. Methods Data for this study were obtained from the Global Burden of Disease 2019 study (1990–2019). We selected the ten countries with malaria’s highest age-standardised mortality rate (ASMR) and identified and ranked the five NCDs with the highest...

Effects of phenological mismatch under warming are modified by community context

Nicholas Pardikes
Climate change is altering the relative timing of species interactions by shifting when species first appear in communities and modifying the duration organisms spend in each developmental stage. However, community contexts, such as intraspecific competition and alternative resource species, can prolong shortened windows of availability and may mitigate the effects of phenological shifts on species interactions. Using a combination of laboratory experiments and dynamic simulations, we quantified how the effects of phenological shifts in Drosophila-parasitoid...

Compartmentalisation of Hepatitis B virus X gene evolution in hepatocellular carcinoma microenvironment and the genotype-phenotype correlation of tumorigenicity in HBV-related patients with hepatocellular carcinoma

Ya Fu, Fengling Fang, Hongyan Guo, Xialin Xiao, Yuhai Hu, Yongbin Zeng, Tianbin Chen, Songhang Wu, Ni Lin, Jinlan Huang, Ling Jiang, Qishui Ou & Can Liu
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) exists as quasispecies (QS). However, the evolutionary characteristics of haplotypes of HBV X gene in the hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) microenvironment remain unclear. Mutations across X gene are essential for the tumorigenicity of HBV X protein (HBx). However, the functional phenotypes of many mutant HBx remain unknown. This study aims to compare the characteristics of X gene evolution between tumour and non-tumour tissues in HCC patients and investigate the tumorigenic phenotype of...

Comparative epidemiology of five waves of COVID-19 in Mexico, March 2020–August 2022

Iván de Jesús Ascencio-Montiel, Oscar David Ovalle-Luna, Ramón Alberto Rascón-Pacheco, Victor Hugo Borja-Aburto & Gerardo Chowell
Abstract Background The Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) is the largest health care provider in Mexico, covering about 48% of the Mexican population. In this report, we describe the epidemiological patterns related to confirmed cases, hospitalizations, intubations, and in-hospital mortality due to COVID-19 and associated factors, during five epidemic waves recorded in the IMSS surveillance system. Methods We analyzed COVID-19 laboratory-confirmed cases from the Online Epidemiological Surveillance System (SINOLAVE) from March 29th, 2020, to...

Semantic interoperability: ontological unpacking of a viral conceptual model

Anna Bernasconi, Giancarlo Guizzardi, Oscar Pastor & Veda C. Storey
Abstract Background Genomics and virology are unquestionably important, but complex, domains being investigated by a large number of scientists. The need to facilitate and support work within these domains requires sharing of databases, although it is often difficult to do so because of the different ways in which data is represented across the databases. To foster semantic interoperability, models are needed that provide a deep understanding and interpretation of the concepts in a domain, so...

Data from: Estimating the effect of plantations on pine invasions in protected areas: a case study from South Africa

Matthew M. McConnachie, Brian W. Van Wilgen, David M. Richardson, Paul J. Ferraro & Aurelia T. Forsyth
1. Protected areas (PAs) are a key intervention for conserving biodiversity and ecosystem services. A major challenge for PAs is the control of invasive non-native plants that spread into PAs from surrounding sources such as forestry plantations. The links between invasions and different source populations are poorly understood, making it difficult to apportion responsibilities for control costs. 2. We estimated the effect of plantations of invasive pines (Pinus species) on the spread of these trees...

Data from: The heritability of chimpanzee and human brain asymmetry

Aida Gómez-Robles, William D. Hopkins, Steven J. Schapiro & Chet C. Sherwood
Human brains are markedly asymmetric in structure and lateralized in function, which suggests a relationship between these two properties. The brains of other closely related primates, such as chimpanzees, show similar patterns of asymmetry, but to a lesser degree, indicating an increase in anatomical and functional asymmetry during hominin evolution. We analysed the heritability of cerebral asymmetry in chimpanzees and humans using classic morphometrics, geometric morphometrics, and quantitative genetic techniques. In our analyses, we separated...

Identification of a neural basis for cold acclimation in Drosophila larvae

Daniel Cox, Nathaniel Himmel, Jamin Letcher, Akira Sakurai, Thomas Gray, Maggie Benson & Kevin Donaldson
Low temperatures can be fatal to insects, but many species have evolved the ability to cold acclimate, thereby increasing their cold tolerance. It has been previously shown that Drosophila melanogaster larvae perform cold-evoked behaviors under the control of noxious cold-sensing neurons (nociceptors), but it is unknown how the nervous system might participate in cold tolerance. Herein, we describe cold-nociceptive behavior among 11 drosophilid species with differing cold tolerances. Behavioral analyses revealed that the predominant cold-evoked...

Abstract Background Large medical centers in urban areas, like Los Angeles, care for a diverse patient population and offer the potential to study the interplay between genetic ancestry and social determinants of health. Here, we explore the implications of genetic ancestry within the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) ATLAS Community Health Initiative—an ancestrally diverse biobank of genomic data linked with de-identified electronic health records (EHRs) of UCLA Health patients (N=36,736). Methods We quantify the...
