Data from: Diversity patterns of non-mammalian cynodonts (Synapsida, Therapsida) and the impact of taxonomic practice and research history on diversity estimates

Marcus Lukic-Walther, Neil Brocklehurst, Christian F. Kammerer & Jörg Fröbisch
Non-mammalian cynodonts represent a speciose and ecologically diverse group with a fossil record stretching from the late Permian until the Cretaceous. Because of their role as major components of Triassic terrestrial ecosystems and as the direct ancestors of mammals, cynodonts are an important group for understanding Mesozoic tetrapod diversity. We examine patterns of non-mammalian cynodont species richness and the quality of their fossil record. A supertree of cynodonts is constructed from recently published trees and...

Genotypes and their interaction effects on reproduction and mating-induced immune activation in Drosophila melanogaster

Claudia Fricke, Sergio Ávila-Calero & Sophie Armitage
Mating causes considerable alterations in female physiology and behaviour, and immune gene expression, partly due to proteins transferred from males to females during copulation. The magnitude of these phenotypic changes could be driven by the genotypes of males and females, as well as their interaction. To test this, we carried out a series of genotype by genotype (G × G) experiments using Drosophila melanogaster populations from two distant geographical locations. We expected lines to have...

Data from: Daphnia galeata and D. dentifera are geographically and ecologically separated whereas their hybrids occur in intermediate habitats: a survey of 44 Chinese lakes

Xiaolin Ma, Wei Hu, Petr Smilauer, Mingbo Yin & Justyna Wolinska
The idea that hybridization promotes range expansion has received recent attention, but support from field studies is limited. We hypothesized that in the cladoceran waterflea Daphnia, parental species are geographically and ecologically separated, whereas hybrids occupy intermediate or occasionally extreme environments, potentially facilitating range expansion of parental species. We assessed the distribution of Daphnia dentifera, D. galeata and their interspecific hybrids across 44 lakes in China (using mitochondrial and microsatellite markers), and related it to...

Institutioneller Kinderschutz in Krippe und Kita als Gelingensfaktor für Partizipation im pädagogischen Alltag

Dennis Epping & Jasmin Luthardt
Der Artikel thematisiert die Notwendigkeit eines institutionell verankerten Schutzkonzepts zur Wahrung und Umsetzung der Kinderrechte in Krippen und Kitas. Dies kann nur gelingen, wenn a) die pädagogischen Fachkräfte ihre pädagogischen Handlungen hinsichtlich Übergriffigkeit, Macht und Missbrauch reflektieren und b) die Partizipation der Kinder entsprechend der international und national geltenden Gesetze im Alltag umgesetzt wird. Im Anschluss stellen wir ein Modell des institutionellen Kinderschutzes für Krippen und Kitas (IKS) vor, welches der pädagogischen Praxis dahingehend Orientierung...

Stabian Baths in Pompeii. New Research on the Archaic Defenses of the City

Mark Robinson, Monika Trümper, Clemens Brünenberg, Jens-Arne Dickmann, Domenico Esposito, Antonio F. Ferrandes, Giacomo Pardini, Alessandra Pegurri & Christoph Rummel
The plan of the Archaic city of Pompeii and the existence of a distinct walled Altstadt have been much debated in scholarship. The area of the Stabian Baths plays a key role in this debate. Based on a series of excavations in the palaestra of the baths, Heinrich Sulze (1940) and particularly Hans Eschebach (1970s) reconstructed a defensive wall and parallel ditch in this area. Eschebach also identified an Archaic street and city gate in...

Myth of Equality? Professional Life of Spanish Republican Women in Exile in Mexico

Marion Röwekamp
pp. 86-108. While the research on the Spanish Republican exile in Mexico has mainly concentrated on the ‘intellectual male exile’ this article will focus on the female Republican exile. It attempts to analyze whether the promises of gender equality that were granted in the constitution of the Second Republic prevailed in exile, whether the Republicans transferred all democratic ideals equally to their exile or whether some achievements were less important to uphold in the Spanish...

Tire wear particles: An emerging threat to soil health

Jing Ding, Min Lv, Dong Zhu, Eva F. Leifheit, Qing-Lin Chen, Yun-Qing Wang, Ling-Xin Chen, Matthias C. Rillig & Yong-Guan Zhu
Tire wear particles (TWP) have caused widespread contamination in the environment. However, their behavior and potential impacts in soil remain unclear since studies have so far been mainly conducted in aquatic ecosystems. It is possible that soil ecosystems are already under pressure from pollution by TWP. We here firstly synthesize knowledge about the composition, distribution, and behavior of TWP in soils. By comparing with effects of microplastics (MP) in soil, we further outline several potential...

Data from: Neglected very long-chain hydrocarbons and the incorporation of body surface area metrics reveal novel perspectives for cuticular profile analysis in insects

Jan Buellesbach, Marek Golian, Tanja Bien, Sebastian Schmelzle, Margy Alejandra Esparza-Mora, Dino McMahon & Klaus Dreisewerd
Most of our knowledge on insect cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) stems from analytical techniques based on gas-chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). However, this method has its limits under standard conditions, particularly in detecting compounds beyond a chain length of around C40. Here, we compare the CHC chain length range detectable by GC-MS with the range assessed by silver-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (Ag-LDI-MS), a novel and rarely applied technique on insect CHCs, in seven species...

Wer gewinnt? Wer verliert?

Timm Bönke & Rick Glaubitz
Das klassische Familienmodell wird nach wie vor institutionell bevorzugt: Frauen können sich, auf das gesamte Erwerbsleben gerechnet, nur etwas mehr als halb so viel Bruttoeinkommen erarbeiten wie Männer. Diese Lücke schließt sich in den verfügbaren Einkommen und damit dem tatsächlichen Lebensstandard vor allem dann, wenn Frauen sich innerhalb des traditionellen Familienbilds bewegen. Werden beide Einkommen im Haushalt zwischen den Eheleuten gleichmäßig aufgeteilt, fängt das Partnereinkommen Einkommensausfälle von Müttern infolge von Erwerbsunterbrechungen, beispielsweise durch Kindererziehungszeiten, auf....

Revised and improved geological model of the Waiwera geothermal reservoir, New Zealand

Andreas Grafe , Thomas Kempka , Michael Schneider & Michael Kühn
Following a thermal and photogrammetric outcrop mapping campaign undertaken at the Waiwera geothermal reservoir in 2019, a pre-existing 3D hydrogeological model was revised in the present study to assess the impact of the updated structural and lithological interpretation on the existing numerical model calibration. For the latter, well data comprising measured temperature and salinity profiles were employed to reconstruct the reservoir’s natural thermal state and spatial distribution of salinity, supported by numerical simulations of density-driven...

Single-cell phenotypic characteristics of tolerance under recurring antibiotic exposure in Escherichia coli

Silvia Kollerová, Lionel Jouvet, Julia Smelková, Sara Zunk-Parras, Alexandro Rodriguez-Rojas & Ulrich Steiner
Non-heritable drug resistance, such as tolerance and persistence towards antibiotics, is little characterized compared to genetic resistance. Tolerance and persistence allow cells to survive application of antibiotics that are bactericidal to non-tolerant cells. Non-heritable drug resistance challenges antibiotic treatment, particularly of recurrent infections, and have implications towards heritable resistance evolution. Tolerant cells have commonly been characterized as growth arrested cells prior and during antibiotic application that quickly resume growth post-application. Here, we explore characteristic of...

Urban biotic homogenization: approaches and knowledge gaps

Sophie Lokatis & Jonathan Jeschke
Urbanization is restructuring ecosystems at an unprecedented pace, with complex and profound consequences for life on earth. One of the hypothesized trajectories of urban ecosystems and species communities is biotic homogenization, possibly leading to very similar species assemblages in cities across the globe. Urbanization can, however, also have the opposite effect: biotic diversification, with cities – at least on the local scale – becoming biologically more diverse, mainly as a consequence of high species introduction...

Comparison of high-resolution SIMS profiles with maximum resolution IRMS stable isotope data

Tobias Kluge , Philipp Holz , Elisabeth Eiche , Thomas Neumann , Alexander Land , Maximilian Schuh , Mario Trieloff & Axel K. Schmitt
High-resolution speleothem paleoclimate records with annual to seasonal resolution are helpful for detailed analysis of climatic changes with limited duration (e.g., volcanic climate impacts), but also for longer-duration events (e.g., at 8.2 ka or 4.2 ka). A high resolution paleoclimate data set is also mandatory for meaningful comparison with archaeological or historical records. Low stalagmite growth rates could impede the acquisition of high-resolution isotope data with the classical micro-milling approach and isotope ratio mass spectrometry...

Data from: Testing the success of palaeontological methods in the delimitation of clam shrimp (Crustacea, Branchiopoda) on extant species

Manja Hethke, Kai Hartmann, Matthias Alberti, Theresa Kutzner & Martin Schwentner
Fossil spinicaudatan taxonomy heavily relies on carapace features (size, shape, ornamentation), and palaeontologists have greatly refined methods to study and describe carapace variability. Whether carapace features alone are sufficient for distinguishing between species of a single genus has remained untested. In our study, we tested common palaeontological methods on 481 individuals of the extant Australian genus Ozestheria that have been previously assigned to ten species based on genetic analysis. All species are morphologically distinct based...
