Abstract Background Hotspots of intraspecific genetic diversity represent invaluable resources for species to cope with environmental changes, and their identification is increasingly recognized as a major goal of conservation ecology research. However, even for iconic and endangered species, conservation strategies are often planned without thorough information on the geographic patterns of genetic variation. Here, we investigated the spatial patterns of genetic variation of the endangered Hermann’s tortoise Testudo hermanni in the Italian Peninsula by genotyping...

The Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) provides a framework for the collation of a set of consistent, multi-sector, multi-scale climate-impact simulations, based on scientifically and politically relevant historical and future scenarios. This framework serves as a basis for robust projections of climate impacts, as well as facilitating model evaluation and improvement, allowing for advanced estimates of the biophysical and socio-economic impacts of climate change at different levels of global warming. It also provides a...

A dataset was generated using the baseline survey data of the project entitled "Innovations in Technology, Institutional and Extension Approaches towards Sustainable Agriculture and enhanced Food and Nutrition Security in Africa (Acronym - Innovafrica)", which involved 16 istitutions from Europe and Africa and was implemented in six countries namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania. It includes the following information: smallholders' socio-demographic and economic characteristics; improved agriculture practices and seed systems adopted; climate...

Shock or jump: deimatic behaviour is repeatable and polymorphic in a yellow-bellied toad

Andrea Chiocchio, Giuseppe Martino, Roberta Bisconti, Claudio Carere & Daniele Canestrelli
Inter-individual variation in antipredatory strategies has long attracted curiosity among scientists. Deimatisms is a complex and time-structured antipredatory strategy consisting in prey suddenly unleashing unexpected defences to frighten predators and stop their attack. Being deimatism traditionally considered as a stereotyped antipredatory response, the inter-individual variation in phenotypic traits related to deimatic displays is almost unexplored. In this study, we employed common garden experiments on 71 yellow-bellied toad Bombina pachypus to investigate the extent and pattern...
