Data from: Ecological and phylogenetic influence on mandible shape variation of South American caviomorph rodents (Rodentia: Hystricomorpha)Alicia Álvarez, Sergio Ivan Perez & Diego H Verzi
We analyzed mandible shape variation of 17 genera belonging to three superfamilies (Cavioidea, Chinchilloidea and Octodontoidea) of South American caviomorph rodents using geometric morphometrics. The relative influence of phylogeny and ecology on this variation was assessed through phylogenetic comparative methods. Most morphological variation was concentrated in condylar, coronoid and angular processes, and the diastema. Features potentially advantageous for digging (i.e. high coronoid and condylar processes, relatively short angular process and diastema) were present only in...
This file contains the essential elements of the SAS script used to perform meta-analyses published in Hoeksema & Forde 2008. Multi-factor models were fit to the data using weighted maximum likelihood estimation of parameters in a mixed model framework, using SAS PROC MIXED, in which the species traits and experimental design factors were considered fixed effects, and a random between-studies variance component was estimated. Significance (at alpha = 0.05) of individual factors in these models...
These data describe the movements of 8 lions after some identified kills. Data are from GPS-collars.
This file contains three tables. Two tables include all primary data for the response variables at regional and local scales of the experiment. The last table explains all variables.
Data from: Resource stoichiometry and consumers control the biodiversity-productivity relationship in pelagic metacommunitiesHelmut Hillebrand & Viola Lehmpfuhl
Recent theory suggests that biodiversity and productivity are both constrained by resource supply rates and ratios, and that resource stoichiometry is the key to understand the relationship between biodiversity and productivity. We experimentally tested this theory using pelagic metacommunities. We amended existing predictions by explicitly considering evenness as biodiversity aspect and consumer instead of competitive control of algal biomass. The metacommunities received different phosphorus (P)-supply, the three patches within each metacommunity differed in nitrogen (N)-supply...
Data from: Deep mitochondrial divergence in Baja California populations of an aquilopelagic elasmobranch: the golden cownose rayJonathan Sandoval-Castillo & Axayácatl Rocha-Olivares
Assessing the realized effect of dispersal in the genetic makeup of a species has significant evolutionary, ecological, and economical consequences. Here, we investigate the genetic diversity and population differentiation in the aquilopelagic golden cownose ray Rhinoptera steindachneri from the Gulf of California (GC) and the Pacific coast of Baja California (PCBC) using the mitochondrial NADH2 gene. Low levels of genetic diversity were found with only 4 polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism haplotypes among 76...
Data from: Can clone size serve as a proxy for clone age? An exploration using microsatellite divergence in Populus tremuloidesDilara Ally, Kermit Ritland & Sarah P. Otto
In long-lived clonal plant species, the overall size of a clone has previously been used to estimate clone age. The size of a clone, however, might be largely determined by physical or biotic interactions, obscuring the relationship between clone size and age. Here, we use the accumulation of mutations at 14 microsatellite loci to estimate clone age in trembling aspen, Populus tremuloides, from southwestern Canada. We show that the observed patterns of genetic divergence are...
Data from: Stalking the fourth domain in metagenomic data: searching for, discovering, and interpreting novel, deep branches in phylogenetic trees of phylogenetic marker genesDongying Wu, Martin Wu, Aaron Halpern, Douglas B. Rusch, Shibu Yooseph, Marvin Frazier, J. Craig Venter & Jonathan A. Eisen
BACKGROUND: Most of our knowledge about the ancient evolutionary history of organisms has been derived from data associated with specific known organisms (i.e., organisms that we can study directly such as plants, metazoans, and culturable microbes). Recently, however, a new source of data for such studies has arrived: DNA sequence data generated directly from environmental samples. Such metagenomic data has enormous potential in a variety of areas including, as we argue here, in studies of...

SUPPLEMENTARY FIGURE S3. Net diversification rates (r = lineages/million years) in Lupinus estimated under the MEDUSA birth–death likelihood model, including relative extinction (ε = birth/death) as a free parameter. MEDUSA analyses were conducted using 1000 trees randomly selected from the posterior distribution of constrained pure–birth Bayesian MCMC tree searches in BEAST, pruned to the infrageneric skeleton topology in Figure 3 of the main text. Surface plots show the frequency (ƒ) of estimates from replicate MEDUSA...
Morphometric data for Callosobruchus maculatus beetles from 16 replicate artificial evolution lines.
When resources are limited, there is a tradeoff between growth/reproduction and stress defense in plants. Most temperate plant species, including Arabidopsis thaliana, can enhance freezing tolerance through cold acclimation at low but non-freezing temperatures. Induction of the cold acclimation pathway should be beneficial in environments where plants frequently encounter freezing stress, but might represent a cost in environments where freezing events are rare. In A. thaliana, induction of the cold acclimation pathway critically involves a...
Data from: The evolutionary genetics of acquisition and allocation in the wing dimorphic cricket, Gryllus firmus.Elizabeth Griep King, Derek A Roff & Daphne J Fairbairn
The evolutionary trajectories of trade-offs are ultimately governed by the evolution of the underlying physiological processes of the acquisition and subsequent allocation of resources. In this study, we focused directly on acquisition and allocation as traits and estimated their genetic architecture in the trade-off between flight capability and reproduction in the cricket, Gryllus firmus. To determine the evolutionary genetics of acquisition and allocation both within and between resource environments we performed a large-scale quantitative genetic...

Next-generation sequencing provides a powerful new approach for developing functional genomic tools for nonmodel species, helping to narrow the gap between studies of model organisms and those of natural populations. Consequently, massively parallel 454 sequencing was used to characterize a normalized cDNA library derived from skin biopsy samples of twelve Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) individuals. Over 412 Mb of sequence data were generated, comprising 1.4 million reads of average length 286 bp. De novo...
