Data from: Genetic structure in a dynamic baboon hybrid zone corroborates behavioral observations in a hybrid populationMarie J.E. Charpentier, Michael C. Fontaine, Julien P. Renoult, Thomas Jenkins, Erwan Cherel, Laure Benoit, Nicolas Barthès, Susan C. Alberts & Jenny Tung
Behavior and genetic structure are intimately related: mating patterns and patterns of movement between groups or populations influence the movement of genetic variation across the landscape and from one generation to the next. In hybrid zones, the behavior of the hybridizing taxa can also have an important impact on the incidence and outcome of hybridization events. Hybridization between yellow baboons and anubis baboons has been well-documented in the Amboseli basin of Kenya, where more anubis-like...
Data from: A highly social, land-dwelling fish defends territories in a constantly fluctuating environmentTerry J. Ord & Shi-Tong Tonia Hsieh
The Pacific leaping blenny (Alticus arnoldorum) is a marine fish that has made a highly successful transition to land. We report an extensive field study on the behavior of this remarkable fish and how it has coped with life on land. The fish occurs in great abundance above the waterline along the rocky coastlines of Micronesia. We found them to be terrestrial in all aspects of their adult daily life, but heavily constrained by large...
Local adaptation is critical for species persistence in the face of rapid environmental change, but its genetic basis is not well understood. We identified candidate loci for local adaptation in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana from a genome-wide association study of lifetime fitness in geographically diverse accessions grown in field experiments in four sites across the species’ native range. Fitness-associated loci exhibited both geographic and climatic signatures of local adaptation. High-fitness alleles were generally distributed closer...

Currently available phylogenetic methods for studying the rate of evolution in a continuously valued character assume that the rate is constant throughout the tree or that it changes along specific branches according to an a priori hypothesis of rate variation provided by the user. Herein, we describe a new method for studying evolutionary rate variation in continuously valued characters given an estimate of the phylogenetic history of the species in our study. According to this...

Data from transect estimates of density
PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Weeds cause considerable environmental and economic damage. However, genomic characterization of weeds has lagged behind that of model plants and crop species. Here we report on the development of genomic tools and resources for 11 weeds from the Compositae family that will serve as a basis for subsequent population and comparative genomic analyses. Because hybridization has been suggested as a stimulus for the evolution of invasiveness, we also analyze these genomic...

Data from: Range-wide genetic population structure of common pochard (Aythya ferina): a potentially important vector of highly pathogenic avian influenza virusesIrene Keller, Yang Liu & Gerald Heckel
An understanding of the distribution and spatial structure of the natural vectors of zoonothic pathogens is of interest for effective disease control and prevention. Here, we investigate the range-wide population genetic structure of common pochard (Aythya ferina), a long distance migratory duck and potential vector of highly pathogenic avian influenza. We collected several hundred samples from breeding and wintering grounds across Eurasia including some H5N1 positive individuals and generated partial sequences of the mitochondrial control...
Previous studies of immunity in wild populations have focused primarily on genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC); however, studies of model species have identified additional immune-related genes that also affect fitness. In this study, we sequenced five non-MHC immune genes in six greater prairie-chicken (Tympanuchus cupido) populations that have experienced varying degrees of genetic drift as a consequence of population bottlenecks and fragmentation. We compared patterns of geographic variation at the immune genes with...
Microsatellite genotypes at six loci for greater prairie-chickens from six populations.
SNP haplotypes at five immune genes for six greater prairie-chicken populations.
Microevolutionary studies have demonstrated sexually antagonistic selection on sexual traits, and existing evidence supports a macroevolutionary pattern of sexually antagonistic coevolution. Two current questions are how antagonistic selection within populations scales to divergence among populations, and to what extent intraspecific divergence matches species-level patterns. To address these questions, we conducted an intraspecific comparative study of sexual armaments and mating behaviours in a water strider (Gerris incognitus) in which male genitals grasp resistant females and female...
This file contains morphological data for male and female specimens from each of 19 populations of water striders, Gerris incognitus, from field collections. Three measures of size are given for each specimen: body centroid size, body length, and the centroid size of the genital segments only. The next 32 columns contain the non-uniform and uniform shape variables for each specimen, generated from IMP CVAGen software (Sheets 2001, http://www3.canisius.edu/~sheets/morphsoft.html). PW refers to ‘partial warp’.
This file contains data on copulation duration for 16 populations of water striders, Gerris incognitus, from field collected individuals. Data were collected from 3 h observations periods of a single male and female water strider within a pail.
