Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change Management Challenge: Are you Sleeping? Are you Sleeping? Predicting Invastion Potential of Non-Native Plants

Ayodele O'Uhuru, Audrey Barker-Plotkin, Justin Dalaba, Will Pfadenhauer, Amanda Suzzi & Toni Lyn Morelli
Sleeper species are non-native species that are established in a region and could become invasive as climate change makes conditions more favorable for many non-native species. Before we can manage potential sleepers, we must first know their identity. We analyzed non-native, established plants in the Northeast United States (CT, MA, ME, NH, NY, RI, VT) using the Environmental Impact Classification for Alien Taxa (EICAT) protocol to identify species that have negative impacts on native ecological...

Data from: Inversion Invasions: when the genetic basis of local adaptation is concentrated within inversions in the face of gene flow

Sara Schaal, Benjamin Haller & Katie Lotterhos
Across many species where inversions have been implicated in local adaptation, genomes often evolve to contain multiple, large inversions that arise early in divergence. Why this occurs has yet to be resolved. To address this gap, we built forward-time simulations in which inversions have flexible characteristics and can invade a metapopulation undergoing spatially divergent selection for a highly polygenic trait. In our simulations, inversions typically arose early in divergence, captured standing genetic variation upon mutation,...

Evolutionary divergence in phenotypic plasticity shapes brain size variation between coexisting sunfish ecotypes

Caleb Axelrod, Beren Robinson & Frédéric Laberge
Mechanisms that generate brain size variation and the consequences of such variation on ecological performance are poorly understood in most natural animal populations. We use a reciprocal-transplant common garden experiment and foraging performance trials to test for brain size plasticity and the functional consequences of brain size variation in Pumpkinseed sunfish (Lepomis gibbosus) ecotypes that have diverged between nearshore littoral and offshore pelagic lake habitats. Different age-classes of wild-caught juveniles from both habitats were exposed...

Navigational Behaviors in Indoor Space: The Interplay Among Visual Complexity, Cognitive Load, and Environmental Factors

TX Zheng
Navigation is an essential activity that people do throughout their entire lives whenever they move from one place to another. It usually takes place in liminal spaces, which refers to the areas of transition and the threshold between two places. As architectural environments become more complicated, investigators have begun to look at the problem of navigation in indoor environments. Previous studies on navigation have included studying the effects of spatial layout, and visual complexity on...

Data from: Seeing the Forest for the trees: Assessing genetic offset predictions from Gradient Forest

Áki Jarl Láruson, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Stephen Keller, Benjamin Haller & Katie Lotterhos
Gradient Forest (GF) is a machine learning algorithm designed to analyze spatial patterns of biodiversity as a function of environmental gradients. An offset measure between the GF predicted environmental association of adapted alleles and a new environment (GF Offset), is increasingly being used to predict the loss of environmentally adapted alleles under rapid environmental change, but remains mostly untested for this purpose. Here we explore the robustness of GF Offset to assumption violations, and its...

Local male breeding density affects extra-pair paternity in a south temperate population of grass wrens Cistothorus platensis

Ramiro Arrieta, Leonardo Campagna, Bettina Mahler, Irby Lovette & Paulo Llambias
Demographic factors can affect the frequency of extra-pair paternity (EPP) in birds, as the distribution and availability of potential mates in both space and time influence the rate of encounters between females and males. Over three breeding seasons, we intensively studied the breeding system of a south temperate population of grass wrens Cistothorus platensis by genotyping 73 broods (319 nestlings) and estimating EPP rates for those broods. Using five different radii (80, 160, 240, 320,...

Staging to join non-kin groups in a classical cooperative breeder, the Florida scrub-jay

Young Ha Suh, Reed Bowman & John Fitzpatrick
1. Why unrelated members form groups in animal societies remains a pertinent topic in evolutionary biology because benefits for group members often are not obvious. We studied subordinates that disperse to join unrelated social groups in the Florida scrub-jay Aphelocoma coerulescens, a cooperative breeding species mainly composed of kin-based groups. 2. We evaluated potential adaptive benefits of dispersing to become an unrelated helper (staging) versus remaining home and dispersing only to pair and breed (direct...

Data from: Genetic and spatial variation in vegetative and floral traits across a hybrid zone

Diane Campbell, Robert Raguso, Maya Midzik, Mascha Bischoff & Geoffrey Broadhead
Premise: Genetic variation influences potential for evolution to rescue populations from impacts of environmental change. Most studies of genetic variation in fitness-related traits focus on either vegetative or floral traits, with few on floral scent. How vegetative and floral traits compare in potential for adaptive evolution is poorly understood. Results: Vegetative traits SLA and WUE varied greatly among planting sites, while showing weak or no genetic variation among source populations. SLA and trichomes responded plastically...
