Data from: Deconstructing heterostyly: the evolutionary role of incompatibility system, pollinators and floral architecture

Rocio Santos-Gally, Alejandro Gonzalez-Voyer & Juan Arroyo
Darwin’s early work on heterostyly and related style polymorphisms (the presence of two or three style morphs within a population) generated much interest to understand how precise interactions between ecological and genetic mechanisms influence the evolution of floral diversity. Here we tested three key hypotheses proposed to explain the evolution of heterostyly: i)the presence of self-incompatibility, ii) the role of pollinators in promoting dissasortative mating, and iii) floral architecture, which restricts pollinators’ movements and ensures...

Data from: Direct and indirect effects of global change on mycorrhizal associations of savanna plant communities

Ignacio Manuel Pérez Ramos, Andrea Álvarez-Méndez, Katharina Wald, Luis Matías, María Dolores Hidalgo-Galvez & Carmen M. Navarro-Fernández
This data set contains a very detailed information on a field manipulative experiment of rainfall exclusion and increased temperature aimed to evaluate the impact of forecasted warming and drying on mycorrhizal associations of savanna plant communities subjected to different grazing history. Additionally, we compiled detailed information on the abiotic and biotic environment with the final aim of disentangling the direct and indirect effects of climate change on this widespread mycorrhizal symbiosis. Our results suggest that...

Item response theory and differential test functioning analysis of the HBSC-Symptom-Checklist across 46 countries

Andreas Heinz, Philipp E. Sischka, Carolina Catunda, Alina Cosma, Irene García-Moya, Nelli Lyyra, Anne Kaman, Ulrike Ravens-Sieberer & William Pickett
Abstract Background The Symptom Checklist (SCL) developed by the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study is a non-clinical measure of psychosomatic complaints (e.g., headache and feeling low) that has been used in numerous studies. Several studies have investigated the psychometric characteristics of this scale; however, some psychometric properties remain unclear, among them especially a) dimensionality, b) adequacy of the Graded Response Model (GRM), and c) measurement invariance across countries. Methods Data from 229,906 adolescents...

Abstract Background and purpose The neurological course after stroke is highly variable and is determined by demographic, clinical and genetic factors. However, other heritable factors such as epigenetic DNA methylation could play a role in neurological changes after stroke. Methods We performed a three-stage epigenome-wide association study to evaluate DNA methylation associated with the difference between the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) at baseline and at discharge (ΔNIHSS) in ischaemic stroke patients. DNA...

Data from: High correlated paternity leads to negative effects on progeny performance in two mediterranean shrub species

Sofia Nora, Abelardo Aparicio & Rafael G. Albaladejo
Anthropogenic habitat deterioration can promote changes in plant mating systems that subsequently may affect progeny performance, thereby conditioning plant recruitment for the next generation. However, very few studies yet tested mating system parameters other than outcrossing rates; and the direct effects of the genetic diversity of the pollen received by maternal plants (i.e. correlated paternity) has often been overlooked. In this study, we investigated the relation between correlated paternity and progeny performance in two common...

Data from: Linking DNA methylation with performance in a woody plant species

Rafael G. Albaladejo, Clara Parejo-Farnés, Encarnación Rubio-Pérez, Sofia Nora & Abelardo Aparicio
Epigenetic factors are increasingly being viewed as important mechanisms in organism performance. However, advances in plant epigenetics rely mostly on studies of short-lived model or cultivated species and there is a current gap in knowledge on wild plants, especially on woody plant species, that still needs to be addressed via empirical studies. Through a greenhouse experiment we compared the genetic (microsatellites) and epigenetic (methylation-sensitive amplified polymorphisms) variation in mother plants and their open-pollinated offspring of...

The role of plant-pollinator interactions in structuring nectar microbial communities

Clara De Vega, Sergio Álvarez-Pérez, Rafael G. Albaladejo, Sandy-Lynn Steenhuisen, Marc-André Lachance, Steve D. Johnson & Carlos M. Herrera
1. Floral nectar harbours a diverse microbiome of yeasts and bacteria that depend predominantly on animal visitors for their dispersal. Since pollinators visit specific sets of flowers and carry their own unique microbiota, we hypothesize that plant species visited by the same set of pollinators may support non-random nectar microbial communities linked together by the type of pollinator. 2. Here we explore the importance of plant-pollinator interactions in the assembly of nectar microbiome and study...

Data from: Germination niche breadth of invasive Iris pseudacorus (L.) suggests continued recruitment from seeds with climate warming

Brenda J. Grewell, Morgane B. Gillard, Jesús M. Castillo, Mohsen B. Mesgaran & Caryn J. Futrell
Understanding recruitment processes of invasive species is central to conservation and management strategies. Iris pseudacorus,an emergent macrophyte, has established invasive populations across a broad global range where it reduces biodiversity in wetland ecosystems. Climate warming is altering cues that drive germination, yet studies on the invasion of wetland macrophytes often ignore germination ecology despite its importance to their establishment and spread. The dataset includes data generated from a series of experiments conducted to improve understanding...

Polyploidy promotes divergent evolution across the leaf economics spectrum and plant edaphic niche in the Dianthus broteri complex

Javier López-Jurado, Enrique Mateos-Naranjo & Francisco Balao
The evolution of the leaf economics spectrum (LES) is known to be constrained by genetic relatedness but also promoted at small geographic and phylogenetic scales. In those cases, we hypothesised that polyploidy would play a prominent role as an outstanding source of functional divergence and adaptive potential. We registered leaf-level nutrient, water and light economy related traits from the LES as well as edaphic properties in the four cytotypes of the autopolyploid Dianthus broteri complex...

Habitat-complexity regulates the intensity of facilitation along an environmental stress gradient

Carlos Navarro Barranco
Positive interactions between foundation species and their associated species are expected to be influenced by the degree of environmental stress as well as trait variations of the species involved. However, there is scarce empirical evidence regarding how these two factors interact and shape the intensity of facilitation. To test how facilitation varies with stress, a colonization experiment using artificial algal units that varied in a functional trait (morphological complexity) was conducted at different intertidal height...

Estimated projection of oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer deaths in Spain to 2044

Pedro Infante-Cossio, Antonio-Jose Duran-Romero, Antonio Castaño-Seiquer, Rafael Martinez-De-Fuentes & Jose-Juan Pereyra-Rodriguez
Abstract Background Oral cavity cancer (OCC) and oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) are two common malignancies whose mortality is worryingly increasing worldwide. However, few studies have estimated the mortality trends for these cancers in the coming years. This study analysed the mortality rates for OCC and OPC observed between 1980 and 2019 to generate a predictive model for the next 25 years in Spain. Methods Mid-year population data and death certificates for the period 1980–2019 were obtained...

Data from: The building of a biodiversity hotspot across a land-bridge in the Mediterranean

Rafael Molina-Venegas, Abelardo Aparicio, Sébastien Lavergne & Juan Arroyo
Many of the macroevolutionary processes that have shaped present-day phylogenetic patterns were caused by geological events such as plate tectonics and temporary land-bridges. The study of spatial patterns of phylogenetic diversity can provide insights into these past events. Here we focus on a western Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot located in the southern Iberian Peninsula and northwest Africa, two regions that are separated by the Strait of Gibraltar. We explore the spatial structure of the phylogenetic relationships...

Nager, Jan-Åke Nilsson … & Ruedi G. Nager
Coexistence between great tits Parus major and blue tits Cyanistes caeruleus, but also other hole‐nesting taxa, constitutes a classic example of species co‐occurrence resulting in potential interference and exploitation competition for food and for breeding and roosting sites. However, the spatial and temporal variations in coexistence and its consequences for competition remain poorly understood. We used an extensive database on reproduction in nest boxes by great and blue tits based on 87 study plots across...

Data from: The spatial structure of phylogenetic and functional diversity in the United States and Canada: an example using the sedge family (Cyperaceae)

Daniel Spalink, Jocelyn Pender, Marcial Escudero, Andrew L. Hipp, Eric H. Roalson, Julian R. Starr, Marcia J. Waterway, Lynn Bohs & Kenneth J. Sytsma
Systematically quantifying diversity across landscapes is necessary to understand how clade history and ecological heterogeneity contribute to the origin, distribution, and maintenance of biodiversity. Here, we chart the spatial structure of diversity among all species in the sedge family (Cyperaceae) throughout the USA and Canada. We first identify areas of remarkable species richness, phylogenetic diversity, and functional trait diversity, and highlight regions of conservation priority. We then test predictions about the spatial structure of this...

Data from: Pliocene-Pleistocene ecological niche evolution shapes the phylogeography of a Mediterranean plant group

Carmen Benítez Benítez, Marcial Escudero, Francisco Rodriguez-Sanchez, Santiago Martín-Bravo & Pedro Jiménez Mejías
Estimating species ability to adapt to environmental changes is crucial to understand their past and future response to climate change. The Mediterranean basin has experienced remarkable climatic changes since the Miocene, which have greatly influenced the evolution of the Mediterranean flora. Here we examine the evolutionary history and biogeographic patterns of two sedge sister species (Carex, Cyperaceae) restricted to the western Mediterranean basin, but with Pliocene fossil record in central Europe. In particular, we estimated...
