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...

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...

Data from: Climate matching and anthropogenic factors contribute to the colonisation and extinction of local populations during avian invasions

Laura Cardador, José L Tella, Julie Louvrier, José D Anadón, Pedro Abellán & Martina Carrete
Concern about the impacts of biological invasions has generated a great deal of interest in understanding factors that determine invasion success. Most of our current knowledge comes from static approaches that use spatial patterns as a proxy of temporal processes. These approaches assume that species are present in areas where environmental conditions are the most favourable. However, this assumption is problematic when applied to dynamic processes such as species expansions when equilibrium has not been...

Cold winters have morph-specific effects on natal dispersal distance in a wild raptor

Arianna Passarotto, Arianna Passarotto, Chiara Morosinotto, Jon Brommer, Esa Aaltonen, Kari Ahola, Teuvo Karstinen & Patrik Karell
Dispersal is a key process with crucial implications in spatial distribution, density and genetic structure of species’ populations. Dispersal strategies can vary according to both individual and environmental features, but putative phenotype-by-environment interactions have rarely been accounted for. Melanin-based color polymorphism is a phenotypic trait associated with specific behavioral and physiological profiles and is therefore a good candidate trait to study dispersal tactics in different environments. Here, using a 40 years dataset of a population...

Data supporting: Drivers of individual-based, antagonistic interaction networks during plant range expansion

Jorge Isla, Miguel Jácome-Flores, Pareja Daniel & Jordano Pedro
1. Range expansion in plant populations, especially at the colonization front, can be either limited by disproportionately large effects of antagonistic interactions or facilitated by their release. How the strength of antagonistic interactions changes along successional gradients during range expansion is still poorly documented, especially when diverse assemblages of plant antagonists (rodents, invertebrates, and birds) combine within interaction networks. 2. We study the changes in individual-based, predispersal seed-pulp predator networks along a colonization gradient in...

Turgor loss point predicts survival responses to experimental and natural drought in tropical tree seedlings

Leonor 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...
