Data from: Heat shock protein expression enhances heat tolerance of reptile and bird embryos

Jing Gao, Wen Zhang, Wei Dang, Yi Mou, Yuan Gao, Bao-Jun Sun, Wei-Guo Du, W.-G. Du & B.-J. Sun
The role of heat shock proteins (HSPs) in heat tolerance has been demonstrated in cultured cells and animal tissues, but rarely in whole organisms because of methodological difficulties associated with gene manipulation. By comparing HSP70 expression patterns among representative species of reptiles and birds, and by determining the effect of HSP70 overexpression on embryonic development and hatchling traits, we have identified the role of HSP70 in the heat tolerance of amniote embryos. Consistent with their...

Data from: Biodiversity soup: metabarcoding of arthropods for rapid biodiversity assessment and biomonitoring

Douglas W. Yu, Yinqiu Ji, Brent C. Emerson, Xiaoyang Wang, Chengxi Ye, Chunyan Yang & Zhaoli Ding
1) Traditional biodiversity assessment is costly in time, money, and taxonomic expertise. Moreover, data are frequently collected in ways (e.g. visual bird lists) that are unsuitable for auditing by neutral parties, which is necessary for dispute resolution. 2) We present protocols for the extraction of ecological, taxonomic and phylogenetic information from bulk samples of arthropods. The protocols combine mass trapping of arthropods, mass-PCR amplification of the COI barcode gene, pyrosequencing, and bioinformatic analysis, which together...

Location data of worker bumblebees across an agricultural landscape in Buckinghamshire, UK

C. Carvell, A.F.G. Bourke, S. Dreier, M.S. Heard, W.C. Jordan, S. Sumner, J. Wang & J.W. Redhead
This dataset contains locations of worker bumblebees of five species (Bombus terrestris, B. lapidarius, B. pascuorum, B. hortorum, B. ruderatus) across an agricultural landscape centred on the Hillesden Estate, Buckinghamshire, UK. Locations were recorded in the field using a handheld GPS unit. Workers were non-lethally DNA sampled between June and August 2011, and genetic analysis used to confirm species and assign individuals to full-sib groups (colonies). Data were collected as part of a project led...

Data from: Recent northward range expansion promotes song evolution in a passerine bird, the Light-vented Bulbul

Xiaoying Xing, Per Alström, Xiaojing Yang, Fumin Lei, F. M. Lei & X. J. Yang
In common with human speech, song is culturally inherited in oscine passerine birds (‘songbirds’). Intraspecific divergence in birdsong, such as development of local dialects, might be an important early step in the speciation process. It is therefore vital to understand how songs diverge, especially in founding populations. The northward expansion of the Light-vented Bulbul Pycnonotus sinensis (J. F. Gmelin, 1789) into north China in the last 30 years provides an excellent opportunity to study birdsong...

Data from: Population size and time since island isolation determine genetic diversity loss in insular frog populations

Supen Wang, Wei Zhu, Xu Gao, Xianping Li, Yan Shaofei, Xuan Liu, Ji Yang, Zengxiang Gao, Yiming Li & Shaofei Yan
Understanding the factors that contribute to loss of genetic diversity in fragmented populations is crucial for conservation measurements. Land-bridge archipelagoes offer ideal model systems for identifying the long-term effects of these factors on genetic variations in wild populations. In this study, we used 9 microsatellite markers to quantify genetic diversity and differentiation of 810 pond frogs (Pelophylax nigromaculataus) from 24 islands of the Zhoushan Archipelago and 3 sites on nearby mainland China and estimated the...

Data from: Walking in a heterogeneous landscape: dispersal, gene-flow and conservation implications for the giant panda in the Qinling Mountains

Tianxiao Ma, Yibo Hu, Isa-Rita Russo, Yonggang Nie, Tianyou Yang, Lijuan Xiong, Shuai Ma, Tao Meng, Han Han, Ximing Zhang, Mike W. Bruford, Fuwen Wei, Isa-Rita M. Russo & Michael W. Bruford
Understanding the interaction between life history, demography and population genetics in threatened species is critical for the conservations of viable populations. In the context of habitat loss and fragmentation, identifying the factors that underpin the structuring of genetic variation within populations can allow conservationists to evaluate habitat quality and connectivity and help to design dispersal corridors effectively. In this study, we carried out a detailed, fine-scale landscape genetic investigation of a giant panda population for...

Data from: The evolutionary road from wild moth to domestic silkworm

Hui Xiang, Xiaojing Liu, Muwang Li, Ya'nan Zhu, Lizhi Wang, Yong Cui, Liyuan Liu, Gangqi Fang, Heying Qian, Anying Xu, Wen Wang & Shuai Zhan
The Silk Road, which derives its name from the trade of silk produced by the domestic silkworm Bombyx mori, was an important episode in the development and interaction of human civilizations. However, the detailed history behind silkworm domestication remains ambiguous, and little is known about the underlying genetics with respect to important aspects of its domestication. Here, we reconstruct the domestication processes and identify selective sweeps by sequencing 137 representative silkworm strains. The results present...

Data from: Within- and between-group dynamics in an obligate cooperative breeder

Rosie Woodroffe, Helen O'Neill & Daniella Rabaiotti
1. Cooperative behaviour can have profound effects on demography. In many cooperative species, components of fitness (e.g. survival, reproductive success) are diminished in smaller social groups. These effects (termed group-level component Allee effects) may lead smaller groups to grow relatively slowly or fail to persist (termed group-level demographic Allee effects). 2. If these group-level effects were to propagate to the population level, small populations would grow slowly or decline to extinction (termed population-level demographic Allee...

Scaling the extinction vortex: Body size as a predictor of population dynamics close to extinction events

Nathan Williams, Louise McRae, Robin Freeman, Pol Capdevila & Christopher Clements
Mutual reinforcement between abiotic and biotic factors can drive small populations into a catastrophic downward spiral to extinction – a process known as the ‘extinction vortex.’ However, empirical studies investigating extinction dynamics in relation to species’ traits have been lacking. We assembled a database of 35 vertebrate populations monitored to extirpation over a period of at least ten years, represented by 32 different species, including 25 birds, five mammals and two reptiles. We supplemented these...

Negative impacts of dominance on bee communities: Does the influence of invasive honey bees differ from native bees?

Lucas Alejandro Garibaldi, Lucas Garibaldi, Néstor Pérez-Méndez, Guaraci Cordeiro, Alice Hughes, Michael Orr, Isabel Alves Dos Santos, Breno Freitas, Favízia Freitas De Oliveira, Gretchen Lebuhn, Ignasi Bartomeus, Marcelo Aizen, Patricia Andrade, Betina Blochtein, Danilo Boscolo, Patricia Drumond, Maria Gaglianone, Barbara Gemmill-Herren, Rosana Halinski, Cristiane Krug, Marcia Maues, Lucia Piedade Kiill, Mardiore Pinheiro, Carmen Pires & Blandina Felipe Viana
Invasive species can reach high abundances and dominate native environments. One of the most impressive examples of ecological invasions is the spread of the African sub-species of the honey bee throughout the Americas, starting from its introduction in a single locality in Brazil. The invasive honey bee is expected to more negatively impact bee community abundance and diversity than native dominant species, but this has not been tested previously. We developed a comprehensive and systematic...

A specimen-level dataset of functional traits and DNA barcodes for Chinese bees

Tingting Xie & Douglas Chesters
The full potential for using DNA barcodes for profiling functional trait diversity has yet to be determined in plants and animals, thus we outline a general framework for quantifying functional trait diversity of insect community DNA and propose and assess the accuracy of three methods for achieving this. We built a novel dataset of traits and DNA barcodes for wild bees in China. An informatics framework was developed for phylogeny-based integration of these data and...

High ultrafiltration rate induced intradialytic hypotension is a predictor for cardiac remodeling: a 5-year cohort study

Jinbo Yu, Xiaohong Chen, Yang Li, Yaqiong Wang, Zhonghua Liu, Bo Shen, Jie Teng, Jianzhou Zou & Xiaoqiang Ding
Intradialytic-hypotension (IDH) is a common complication of hemodialysis. High ultrafiltration rate (UFR) might lead to IDH. However, the relationships between UFR, IDH, and cardiac remodeling among hemodialysis patients in the long-term have not been deeply explored. This retrospective cohort study collected clinical and echocardiographic data. Patients were enrolled from 1 January 2014 to 31 March 2014 and were followed-up for 5-year. Those who suffered from more than four hypotensive events during three months (10% of...

Comparison of endoscopic and open surgery in life-threatening large spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage: A propensity-matched analysis

Kun Lin, Zhi cheng Lin, Yin hai Tang, De Wei, Chuang Gao & Rongcai Jiang
Background:Conventionally, open surgery (OS), including standard craniotomy (SC) and decompressive craniectomy (DC) with hematoma evacuation, is adopted to treat life-threatening large spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Recently, endoscopic surgery (ES), a minimally invasive surgical treatment, has gained increased popularity. However, the safety and efficacy of ES for life-threatening large ICH is uncertain.Aim:The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of ES for life-threatening large ICH and compare it with traditional OS.Methods:We...
