Data from: Egg rejection and clutch phenotype variation in the plain prinia (Prinia inornata)

Longwu Wang, Wei Liang, Canchao Yang, Shun-Jen Cheng, Yu-Cheng Hsu & Xin Lu
Avian hosts of brood parasites can evolve anti-parasitic defenses to recognize and reject foreign eggs from their nests. Theory predicts that higher inter-clutch and lower intra-clutch variation in egg appearance facilitates hosts to detect parasitic eggs as egg-rejection mainly depends on the appearance of the egg. Therefore, we predict that egg patterns and rejection rates will differ when hosts face different intensity of cuckoo parasitism. We tested this prediction in two populations of the plain...

Data from: Tree circumference dynamics in four forests characterized using automated dendrometer bands

Valentine Herrmann, Sean M. McMahon, Matteo Detto, James A. Lutz, Stuart J. Davies, Chia-Hao Chang-Yang & Kristina J. Anderson-Teixeira
Stem diameter is one of the most commonly measured attributes of trees, forming the foundation of forest censuses and monitoring. Changes in tree stem circumference include both irreversible woody stem growth and reversible circumference changes related to water status, yet these fine-scale dynamics are rarely leveraged to understand forest ecophysiology and typically ignored in plot- or stand-scale estimates of tree growth and forest productivity. Here, we deployed automated dendrometer bands on 12–40 trees at four...
