Experimental evidence that acorn woodpeckers recognize relationships among third parties no longer living together

Michael Pardo, Eric Walters & Walter Koenig
Triadic awareness, or knowledge of the relationships between others, is essential to navigating many complex social interactions. While some animals maintain relationships with former group members post-dispersal, recognizing cross-group relationships between others may be more cognitively challenging than simply recognizing relationships between members of a single group because there is typically much less opportunity to observe interactions between individuals that do not live together. We presented acorn woodpeckers (Melanerpes formicivorus), a highly social species, with...

Data from: How gut microbiome interactions affect nutritional traits of Drosophila melanogaster

, Grace Peters-Schulze, Jingwei Cai, Andrew D. Patterson & Angela E. Douglas
Most research on the impact of the gut microbiome on animal nutrition is designed to identify the effects of single microbial taxa and single metabolites of microbial origin, without considering the potentially complex network of interactions among co-occurring microorganisms. Here, we investigate how different microbial associations and their fermentation products affect host nutrition, using Drosophila melanogaster colonized with three gut microorganisms (the bacteria Acetobacter fabarum and Lactobacillus brevis and the yeast Hanseniaspora uvarum) in all...

Golden-winged Warbler post-fledging movement and stand-scale habitat selection

Cameron Fiss, Darin McNeil, Amanda Rodewald, Joseph Duchamp & Jeffery Larkin
Our understanding of songbird habitat needs during the breeding season stems largely from studies of nest success. However, growing evidence shows that nesting habitat and post-fledging habitat often differ. Management guidelines for declining species need to be revaluated and updated to account for habitat shifts that may occur across the full breeding cycle. The Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera) is a declining songbird species for which best management practices (BMPs) are based overwhelmingly on nesting habitat....
