Migration of tagged silver eels in the Atlantic 2006 - 2014

Known and estimated locations of silver European eels in the Atlantic from 2006 to 2014 derived from popup satellite tags and archival tags. Other data associated with the tagging experiments such as the length, weight, fat percentage, Pankhurst index and Fin index are also included. Locations were either known (from transmitted positions) or were estimated based on the temperature at depth data recorded by electronic tags (latitude) and the timing of steep dives at dawn...

Associations and determinants of mother-infant quality of interactions in portuguese dyads from Azores

helia soares, Marina Fuertes, Sandra Pereira & Maria do Céu Barberi
Bowlby and many other developmental and family theorists stressed that early socialization is a bi-directional, reciprocal, relationship- based process between infant and caregiver (e.g., Brazelton, Koslowski, & Main, 1974; Bronfenbrenner, & Morris, 1998; Harrist, & Waugh, 2002; Bronfenbrenner, 2005). These first relational experiences affect infant development and maternal sensitivity during the first year of life, remaining the best single predictor of infant secure attachment across studies, despite the relatively small effect sizes (e.g., Wolff and...

Interspecific allometry for sexual shape dimorphism: macroevolution of multivariate sexual phenotypes with application to Rensch's rule

Adams Dean, Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou, Elizabeth Glynne & Dean C. Adams
Allometric trends in the degree of sexual dimorphism with body size have long fascinated evolutionary biologists. Many male-biased clades display more prominent sexual dimorphism in larger taxa (Rensch’s rule), with most examples documenting this pattern for body size dimorphism. While sexual dimorphism in traits other than body size is equally functionally relevant, characterizing allometric patterns of sexual dimorphism in such traits is hampered by lack of an analytical framework that can accommodate multivariate phenotypes. In...

The genetic ancestry of American Creole cattle inferred from uniparental and autosomal genetic markers

Oscar Cortes Gardyn, Catarina Ginja, Luis Telo De Gama, Amparo Martínez, Inmaculada Martín Burriel & Juan Vicente Delgado
Cattle imported from the Iberian Peninsula spread throughout America in the early years of discovery and colonization to originate Creole breeds, which adapted to a wide diversity of environments and later received infuences from other origins, including zebu cattle in more recent years. We analyzed uniparental genetic markers and autosomal microsatellites in DNA samples from 114 cattle breeds distributed worldwide, including 40 Creole breeds representing the whole American continent, and samples from the Iberian Peninsula,...

Cartografia da comunicação e dos comportamentos interativos em díades com elevada ou baixa qualidade relacional

Filipe Pinto, Isabel Fernandes, Otília Sousa & Marina Fuertes
A bibliografia indica que as relações pais-filhos afetam o desenvolvimento, a adaptação social, a saúde mental e o sucesso académico. Contudo, a generalidade dos estudos analisa globalmente os dados de uma amostra. Nesta pesquisa estudamos, somente, “as melhores relações” e as de “risco”, retirando os casos moderados (que abarcam uma grande diversidade de comportamentos e atenuam a compreensão dos extremos) procura-se: i) identificar comportamentos interativos adequados e sensíveis e o seu oposto; ii) estudar a...

Intervenção Precoce na linha de horizonte das famílias

Marina Fuertes
Numa linguagem acessível pretende-se responder a algumas questões habitualmente colocadas pelas famílias quando procuram serviços de intervenção precoce: O que é a intervenção precoce na infância? Que serviços podem ser prestados e por quem? Qual o quadro legal em Portugal? Que papel podem ter as equipas locais de intervenção precoce? No processo de resposta procura-se desmistificar algumas ideias sobre o desenvolvimento infantil e sobre as práticas de intervenção precoce e, sobretudo, salientar o contributo da...

Large-Eddy Simulations of T-shaped Open-Channel Confluences With Different Downstream Channel Widths

Pedro Xavier Ramos, Laurent Schindfessel, João Pedro Pêgo & Tom De Mulder
Confluences of open-channel flows are common in nature as well as in urban drainage networks and in hydraulic structures. The complex hydrodynamics is often studied in schematized, right-angled confluences. In this paper, the influence of the downstream channel width onto time-averaged and turbulent flow features will be investigated numerically, based on Large-Eddy Simulations. For one flow situation, i.e. flow ratio and downstream Froude number, two geometries will be compared: a discordant width case, which was...

AFLP and geometric morphometrics for Littorina fabalis

Juan Galindo & Rui Faria
Low dispersal marine intertidal species facing strong divergent selective pressures associated with steep environmental gradients have a great potential to inform us about local adaptation and reproductive isolation. Among these, gastropods of the genus Littorina offer a unique system to study parallel phenotypic divergence resulting from adaptation to different habitats related with wave exposure. In this study, we focused on two Littorina fabalis ecotypes from Northern European shores and compared the patterns of habitat-related phenotypic...

Data from: Climatic refugia boosted allopatric diversification in Western Mediterranean vipers

Fernando Martínez-Freiría, Inês Freitas, Marco A. L. Zuffi, Philippe Golay, Sylvain Ursenbacher & Guillermo Velo-Antón
Abstract: Aim: to understand the role of climate in fostering diversification, this study reconstructs the historical biogeography of Western Mediterranean vipers Location: Western Mediterranean Basin Taxon: Vipera aspis and V. latastei-monticola complex Methods: phylogeographic analyses were performed over mitochondrial (three genes) and nuclear sequences (two genes), extensively covering species ranges. A total of 4,056 records were assigned to genetic units, using interpolations of genetic data, to test phylogenetic niche conservatism, under a 3D hypervolume approach,...

Estudo comparativo das representações maternas em díades com bebés de termo, pré-termo e extremo pré-termo

Ana Rita Almeida, Rute Casimiro, Sandra Antunes, Maria João Alves, Joana Lopes, Camila Ribeiro, Margarida Custódio dos Santos, João Moreira & Marina Fuertes
As representações das mães acerca dos seus bebés e da maternidade têm sido associadas à vinculação e ao desenvolvimento subsequente do bebé (e.g., Benoit, Parker, & Zeanah, 1997; Fuertes, Faria, Fink & Barbosa, 2011, Kochanska, 1998; Zeanah, Benoit, Hirshberg, Barton, & Regan, 1994). Deste modo, o estudo das representações maternas ganhou importância tanto no campo da investigação na área da relação mãe-filho(a) como na intervenção na maternidade de risco. No caso das mães dos bebés...

Nucleotide diversity of functionally different groups of immune response genes in Old World camels based on newly annotated and reference-guided assemblies

Jean Elbers, Sara Lado, Mark Rogers, José Melo-Ferreira, Jukka Corander, Petr Horin, Pamela Burger & Adiya Yadamsuren
Background Immune-response (IR) genes have an important role in the defense against highly variable pathogens, and therefore, genetic diversity in these genomic regions is essential for species’ survival and adaptation. Although current genome assemblies from Old World camelids are very useful for investigating genome-wide diversity, demography and population structure, they have inconsistencies and gaps that limit analyses at local genomic scales. Improved and more accurate genome assemblies and annotations are needed to study complex genomic...

Examining the link between relaxed predation and bird colouration on islands

Louis Bliard, Matthieu Paquet, Aloïs Robert, Paul Dufour, Julien Renoult, Arnaud Gregoire, Pierre-Andre Crochet, Rita Covas & Claire Doutrelant
Insular ecosystems share analogous ecological conditions, leading to patterns of convergent evolution that are collectively termed the “island syndrome”. In birds, part of this syndrome is a tendency for a duller plumage, possibly as a result of relaxed sexual selection and the reduced need for species recognition. Despite this global pattern, some insular species display a more colourful plumage than their mainland relatives, but why this occurs has remained unexplained. Here, we examine the hypothesis...

Towards a taxonomically unbiased EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030

Stefano Mammola, Nicoletta Riccardi, Vincent Prié, Ricardo Correia, Pedro Cardoso, Manuel Lopes-Lima & Ronaldo Sousa
Through the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and the LIFE projects financial investments, Europe has been the world’s experimental arena for biological conservation. With an estimated budget of €20 billion/year, the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 has set an ambitious goal of reaching 30% Protected Areas and ensure no deterioration in conservation trends and status of all protected species. We analyzed LIFE projects focused on animals from 1992 to 2018 and we found that investment towards vertebrates...

The demise of a wonder: evolutionary history and conservation assessments of the Wonder Gecko Teratoscincus keyserlingii (Gekkota, Sphaerodactylidae) in Arabia

Karin Tamar, Johannes Els, Panagiotis Kornilios, Pritpal Soorae, Pedro Tarroso, Evanthia Thanou, John Pereira, Junid Sha, Esmat Elfaki Mohammed Elhassan, Jeruel Cabadonga Aguhob, Saoud Faisal Badaam, Mohamed Mustafa Eltayeb, Ricardo Pusey, Theodore J. Papenfuss, Robert Macey & Salvador Carranza
Effective biodiversity conservation planning starts with the genetic characterization within and among focal populations, in order to understand the likely impact of threats for ensuring the long-term viability of the species. The Wonder Gecko, Teratoscincus keyserlingii, is one of nine members of the genus. The species is distributed in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, with a small isolated population in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where it is classified nationally as Critically Endangered. Within its Arabian...

Estudo da Sensibilidade Materna em Díades de Risco Biológico, Ambiental e Acumulado

Ana Serradas, Bárbara Tadeu, helia soares & Marina Fuertes
Inicialmente a sensibilidade materna foi definida como a capacidade da mãe reconhecer os sinais comportamentais da criança, interpretá-los corretamente e responder-lhes pronta e adequadamente (Ainsworth, Bell & Stayton, 1971). Este constructo, por influência das abordagens sistémicas e bioecológicas, evoluiu para um conceito diádico resultante da interação mãe-filho(a). No âmbito desta abordagem foi desenvolvida uma escala diádica de avaliação da qualidade do envolvimento materno e infantil com base na observação de díades portuguesas em jogo livre...

A Importância do Pai na qualidade da autorregulação do bebé

Inês Gonçalves & Marina Fuertes
Os comportamentos e o tipo de autorregulação do bebé observado na relação com figura materna têm sido associados à qualidade da vinculação e do desenvolvimento subsequente. Contudo, a literatura escasseia no que respeita à qualidade destes comportamentos do bebé na interação com o pai. Com o intuito de estudar os processos de autorregulação do bebé e o papel paterno na interação foram observados: 19 bebés entre os 3 e os 9 meses. Os participantes deste...
