Data from: Ecology and signal structure drive the evolution of synchronous displays

Daniela M Perez, Enzo Luigi Crisigiovanni, Marcio Roberto Pie, Ana Claudia Rorato, Sergio Roberto Lopes & Sabrina B L Araujo
Animal synchrony is found in phylogenetically distant animal groups, indicating behavioural adaptations to different selective pressures and in different signaling modalities. A notable example of synchronous display is found in fiddler crabs in that males wave their single enlarged claw during courtship. They present species-specific signals, which are composed of distinctive movement signatures. Given that synchronous waving has been reported for several fiddler crab species, the display pattern could influence the ability of a given...

Strandings of marine mammals, sea turtles and seabirds along the Paraná coast, Brazil, from 2015 to 2018.

Camila Domit, Liana Rosa, Fernanda Possatto, Felipe Torres, Marcillo Altoe, Alencar Cabral & André Silva Barreto
To assess the potential impacts on seabirds, turtles and marine mammals from oil and gas production from the oceanic Pre-Salt province at Brazil’s Santos Basin, the Brazilian environmental agency (IBAMA) required PETROBRAS, the main oil company in the basin, to implement the “Programa de Monitoramento de Praias da Bacia de Santos” (Santos Basin Beach Monitoring Program - PMP-BS). Since 2015 PMP-BS has been operating along the states of Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo and Rio...

Data from: Recommendations for assessing earthworm populations in Brazilian ecosystems

Herlon Nadolny, Alessandra Santos, Wilian Demetrio, Talita Ferreira, Lilianne Dos Santos Maia, Ana Caroline Conrado, Marie Bartz, Marilice Garrastazu, Elodie Da Silva, Dilmar Baretta, Amarildo Pasini, Fabiane Vezzani, José Paulo Sousa, Luis Cunha, Jerome Mathieu, Patrick Lavelle, Jörg Römbke & George Brown
Earthworms are often related to fertile soils and frequently used as environmental quality indicators. However, to optimize their use as bioindicators, their populations must be evaluated together with environmental and anthropogenic variables regulating earthworm communities. In this review we identify the earthworm, soil chemical, physical, environmental and management-related variables evaluated in 124 published studies that quantified earthworm abundance (>7300 samples) in 765 sites with different types of climate, soils, land use and management systems in...

Data from: Functional richness shows spatial scale dependency in Pheidole ant assemblages from Neotropical savannas

Karen Neves, Mario Moura, Jonas Maravalhas, Renata Pacheco, Marcio Pie, Ted Schultz & Heraldo Vasconcelos
There is a growing recognition that spatial scale is important for understanding ecological processes shaping community membership, but empirical evidence on this topic is still scarce. Ecological processes such as environmental filtering can decrease functional differences among species and promote functional clustering of species assemblages, whereas interspecific competition can do the opposite. These different ecological processes are expected to take place at different spatial scales, with competition being more likely at finer scales and environmental...
