Data from: Diversity increases with elevation: empidine dance flies (Diptera, Empididae) challenge a predominant pattern

Paul Chatelain, Adrian Plant, Adeline Soulier, Christophe Daugeron & Adeline Soulier-Perkins
Tropical mountain forests are important reservoirs of biodiversity. They are usually species rich and often support endemic species making them prime targets for conservation effort. The aim of this study is to investigate elevational patterns of species diversity and phenology in order to provide a meaningful understanding of insects’ spatio-temporal distributions along a tropical gradient of elevation. Our study focuses on the Empidinae communities (Diptera, Empididae) from Doi Inthanon (north Thailand, gradient 400–2556 m.a.s.l), sampled...

Data from: Mechanisms of reciprocity and diversity in social networks: a modelling and comparative approach

Ivan Puga-Gonzalez, Julia Ostner, Oliver Schülke, Sebastian Sosa, Bernard Thierry & Cedric Sueur
Three mechanisms have been proposed to underlie reciprocation of social behaviors in gregarious animals: ‘calculated reciprocity’, ‘emotional bookkeeping’ and ‘symmetry-based reciprocity’. Among these explanations, emotional book-keeping has received the broadest support from experimental and observational studies. On the other hand, three individual-based models have shown that reciprocation may emerge via ‘symmetry-based reciprocity’, ‘emotional bookkeeping’, or a combination of both mechanisms. Here we use these three models to assess their relative fit with empirical data on...
