Data from: A study of canalization and developmental stability in the sternopleural bristle system of Drosophila melanogaster

Ian Dworkin
Among the explanations for minimizing the effects of extraneous variation has been canalization and developmental stability. However, there is little agreement as to whether these two processes reflect a common set of mechanisms. This confusion is inflated due to the lack of consensus as to a precise definition of canalization. In this study, canalization in the sternopleural bristle system is used to investigate the relationships between measures of canalization and developmental stability by comparing how...

AFLP matrix Alnus glutinosa

Karen Cox, An Vanden Broeck, Hans Van Calster & Joachim Mergeay
The data file contains two spread sheets. The first shows the AFLP data - in the first column the sample codes and in the second the population codes. The next 163 columns represent the different markers, named according to the primer combination and fragment size. Marker presence is noted as "1", marker absence is noted as "0". Missing values are given as "-1". The second spread sheet contains population information: country, location name, population code,...

Data from: Polyandry and the decrease of a selfish genetic element in a wild house mouse population

Andri Manser, Anna K. Lindholm, Barbara König & Homayoun C. Bagheri
Despite deleterious effects on individuals, the t haplotype is a selfish genetic element present in many house mouse populations. By distorting the transmission ratio, +/t males transmit the t haplotype to up to 90% of their offspring. However, t/t individuals perish in utero. Theoretical models based on these properties predict a much higher t frequency than observed, leading to the t paradox. Here, we use empirical field data and theoretical approaches to investigate whether polyandry...

Data from: Protection first then facilitation: a manipulative parasite modulates the vulnerability to predation of its intermediate host according to its own developmental stage

Lucile Dianne, Marie-Jeanne Perrot-Minnot, Alexandre Bauer, Mickaël Gaillard, Elsa Léger & Thierry Rigaud
Many trophically-transmitted parasites with complex life cycles manipulate their intermediate host behavior in ways facilitating their transmission to final host by predation. This facilitation generally results from lowering host’s anti-predatory defences when the parasite is infective to the final host. However, a recent theoretical model predicts that an optimal parasitic strategy would be to protect the intermediate host from predation when non-infective, before switching to facilitation when the infective stage is reached. We tested this...

Data from: Pictorial key for females of Decevania Huben (Hymenoptera, Evaniidae) and description of a new species

Ricardo Kawada
Decevania Huben currently comprises 13 species, the females of which are known for only four. Herein an additional Neotropical Decevania is newly described: Decevania feitosai Kawada, sp. n. from Colombia. The description and identification key were made using the DELTA program. A pictorial key to females of Decevania is provided. Anatomical terminology follows the Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology project with an atlas for most usual terminologies used for recognition of Decevania species. The distribution maps can...

Data from: Temporal genetic stability and high effective population size despite fisheries-induced life-history trait evolution in the North Sea sole.

Els L Cuveliers, Filip A M Volckaert, Adriaan D Rijnsdorp, Maarten H D Larmuseau & Gregory E Maes
Heavy fishing and other anthropogenic influences can have profound impact on a species’ resilience to harvesting. Besides the decrease of the census and effective population size, strong declines in mature adults and recruiting individuals may lead to almost irreversible genetic changes in life-history traits. Here, we investigated the evolution of genetic diversity and effective population size in the heavily exploited sole (Solea solea), through the analysis of historical DNA from a collection of 1379 sole...

Allignment of 21 S-allele sequences of Pyrus pyraster in NEXUS format


Mats Töpel, Magnus Lundberg, Torsten Eriksson & Bente Eriksen
The resulting 50% majority rule consensus trees (with and without branch length data) from the analysis of the data in "trnLF-trnSG.alignemnt.fig4.nex". The tree with branch lengths was used for figure 4.

Data from: Sexual, fecundity, and viability selection on flower size and number in a sexually dimorphic plant

Lynda F. Delph & Christopher R. Herlihy
The evolution of sexual dimorphism will depend on how sexual, fecundity and viability selection act within each sex, with the different forms of selection potentially operating in opposing directions. We examined selection in the dioecious plant Silene latifolia using planted arrays of selection lines that differed in flower size (small vs. large). In this species a flower size/number tradeoff exists within each sex, and males produce smaller and more numerous flowers than females. Moreover, floral...

Data from: Modeling intraspecific adaptation of Abies sachalinensis to local altitude and responses to global warming, based on a 36-year reciprocal transplant experiment

Wataru Ishizuka & Susumu Goto
Intraspecific adaptation in Abies sachalinensis was examined using models based on long-term monitoring data gathered during a reciprocal transplant experiment with eight seed source populations and six transplantation sites along an altitudinal gradient. The consequence of local adaptation was evaluated by testing the home-site advantage for upslope and downslope transplants at five ages. The populations’ fitness-linked trait was set as their productivity (tree height ×survival rate) at each age. The effects of global warming were...

Data to estimate fledging success (FS, see equation S2 in Supporting Information). Variables: BROOD - brood ID, MAHATCH - hatching date (number of days since 1 March), FLED - whether the brood fledged any chicks (1) or not (0). FS was estimated at the middle of the four periods: 49, 72, 95, 117.5 days since 1 March.

Data from: Neofunctionalization within the Omp85 protein superfamily during chloroplast evolution

Mats Töpel, Qihua Ling & Paul Jarvis
The Toc75 and OEP80 proteins reside in the chloroplast outer envelope membrane. Both are members of the Omp85 superfamily of β-barrel proteins, and both are essential in Arabidopsis plants with important roles throughout development. Toc75 forms the translocation channel of the TOC complex, which is responsible for importing nucleus-encoded proteins into chloroplasts, while the function of OEP80 remains uncertain. Deficiency of Toc75 in plants that have artificially reduced OEP80 levels suggests that the latter may...

Data from: An exceptionally high nucleotide and haplotype diversity and a signature of positive selection for the eIF4E resistance gene in barley are revealed by allele mining and phylogenetic analyses of natural populations.

Bernhard J Hofinger, Joanne R Russell, Christopher G Bass, Thomas Baldwin, Mario Dos Reis, Peter E Hedley, Yidan Li, Malcolm Macaulay, Robbie Waugh, Kim E Hammond-Kosack & Kostya Kanyuka
In barley, the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) gene situated on chromosome 3H is recognised as an important source of resistance to the bymoviruses Barley yellow mosaic virus and Barley mild mosaic virus. In modern barley cultivars two recessive eIF4E alleles, rym4 and rym5, confer different isolate-specific resistances. In this study the sequence of eIF4E was analysed in 1090 barley landraces and non-current cultivars originating from 84 countries. An exceptionally high nucleotide diversity was...
