Data from: Effects of habitat fragmentation on parental correlations in the seed rain of a bird-dispersed speciesClara Parejo-Farnés, Juan José Robledo-Arnuncio, Rafael G. Albaladejo, Encarnación Rubio-Pérez & Abelardo Aparicio
Seed dispersal plays a crucial role in natural forest regeneration. Changes in the seed rain due to anthropogenic habitat alteration can influence seedling recruitment patterns and affect the evolutionary dynamics of populations. Using a combined endocarp-embryo microsatellite assay of naturally dispersed seeds, we concomitantly quantify the contribution of contemporary pollen and seed dispersal to the genetic structure of the seed rain of the shrub species Pistacia lentiscus L. The study was conducted in two consecutive...
Despite significant advances in invertebrate phylogenomics over the past decade, the higher-level phylogeny of Pycnogonida (sea spiders) remains elusive. Due to the inaccessibility of some small-bodied lineages, few phylogenetic studies have sampled all sea spider families. Previous efforts based on a handful of genes have yielded unstable tree topologies. Here, we inferred the relationships of 89 sea spider species using targeted capture of the mitochondrial genome, 56 conserved exons, 101 ultraconserved elements, and three nuclear...
Aim: Madagascar is renowned for its unparalleled biodiversity and endemism. With many ecosystems under threat, research is urgently needed on its unique plant diversity. This applies both to Madagascar’s forests and treeless vegetation types. Sedges (Cyperaceae) are among the top ten species-richest angiosperm families in Madagascar (310 native species, 38% endemic), of which two thirds occur in open habitats. We aimed to infer the evolutionary history of sedges in Madagascar, by estimating the number, age...
Turgor loss point predicts survival responses to experimental and natural drought in tropical tree seedlingsLeonor Álvarez-Cansino, Liza S. Comita, F. Andrew Jones, Eric Manzané-Pinzón, Luke Browne & Bettina M.J. Engelbrecht
Identifying key traits that can serve as proxies for species drought resistance is crucial for predicting and mitigating effects of climate change in diverse plant communities. Turgor loss point (πtlp) is a recently emerged trait that has been linked to species distributions across gradients of water availability. However, a direct relationship between πtlp and species ability to survive drought has yet to be established for woody species. Using a manipulative field experiment to quantify species...

Altered methylation pattern in EXOC4 is associated with stroke outcome: an epigenome-wide association studyNatalia Cullell, Carolina Soriano-Tárraga, Cristina Gallego-Fábrega, Jara Cárcel-Márquez, Elena Muiño, Laia Llucià-Carol, Miquel Lledós, Manel Esteller, Manuel Castro de Moura, Joan Montaner, Anna Rosell, Pilar Delgado, Joan Martí-Fábregas, Jerzy Krupinski, Jaume Roquer, Jordi Jiménez-Conde & Israel Fernández-Cadenas
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...
