Genetic architecture of adaptive radiation across two trophic levels

Anna Fiona Feller & Ole Seehausen
Evolution of trophic diversity is a hallmark of adaptive radiation. Yet, transitions between carnivory and herbivory are rare in young adaptive radiations. Haplochromine cichlid fish of the African Great Lakes are exceptional in this regard. Lake Victoria was colonized by an insectivorous generalist and in less than 20,000 years, several clades of specialized herbivores evolved. Carnivorous versus herbivorous lifestyles in cichlids require many different adaptations in functional morphology, physiology, and behaviour. Ecological transitions in either...

Large scale eDNA monitoring of multiple aquatic pathogens as a tool to provide risk maps for wildlife diseases

Natalie Sieber, Alex King, Raphael Krieg, Armin Zenker, Christoph Vorburger & Hanna Hartikainen
Multiple parasites and pathogens cause disease in aquatic wildlife and in aquaculture species, generating a need for monitoring and management. Conventional disease monitoring methods involve laborious, costly and invasive capture and examination of host species, and require specialised expertise for every host and pathogen of interest. These restrictions could be alleviated by using pathogen detection techniques based on environmental DNA that provide simultaneous surveys of multiple aquatic pathogens across different host taxa. This would also...

The influence of predator community composition on photoprotective traits of copepods

Rebecca Oester, Rebecca Oester, Ryan Greenway, Marvin Moosmann, Ruben Sommaruga, Barbara Tartarotti-Alfreider, Jakob Brodersen & Blake Matthews
Trait expression of natural populations often jointly depends on prevailing abiotic environmental conditions and predation risk. Copepods, for example, can vary their expression of compounds that confer protection against ultraviolet radiation (UVR), such as astaxanthin and mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs), in relation to predation risk. Despite ample evidence that copepods accumulate less astaxanthin in the presence of predators, little is known about how the community composition of planktivorous fish can affect the overall expression of...

Data from: Seasonal and functional variation in the trophic base of intermittent Alpine streams

Andre Siebers, Amael Paillex & Christopher Robinson
In high-altitude Alpine streams, seasonal cycles of snowmelt, glacial melt, and rainfall drive variation in the availability of algal food resources. Yet high-altitude streams also exhibit varying degrees of flow intermittency, from solely winter-drying streams to others that dry periodically throughout summer and autumn. These environmental drivers may interact in different ways to determine the functional trophic base of macroinvertebrates inhabiting high-altitude streams. Here, we estimated the proportional contribution of autochthonous resources to the assimilated...

Egg size and offspring phenotype data at early life stages in seven Arctic charr morphs

Samantha V. Beck, Katja Räsänen, Bjarni K. Kristjánsson, Skúli Skúlason, Zophonías O. Jónsson, Markos Tsinganis & Camille A. Leblanc
Maternal effects have the potential to alter early developmental processes of offspring and contribute to adaptive diversification. Egg size is a major contributor to offspring phenotype, which can influence developmental trajectories and potential resource use. However, to what extent intraspecific variation in egg size facilitates evolution of resource polymorphism is poorly understood. We studied multiple resource morphs of Icelandic Arctic charr, ranging from an anadromous morph – with a phenotype similar to the proposed ancestral...

Relationships between egg size and maternal size, life-history forms, and habitats of Greenlandic Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus)

Kunio Takatsu, Coralie Delarue, Naomi Heller, Grégoire Saboret & Jakob Brodersen
Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus [L.] complex) has been widely used as a model system for studies in evolutionary ecology because of its diversity in feeding ecology, habitat use, life-history forms, and associated morphologies observed in matured individuals. However, we still know relatively little about traits exhibited early in life of the species, although the trait diversity of matured individuals may largely be shaped during development. Egg size is a key determinant ofvarious traits exhibited early...

Context dependent variation in corticosterone and phenotypic divergence of Rana arvalis populations along an acidification gradient

Katja Räsänen, Jelena Mausbach & Anssi Laurila
Background Physiological processes, as immediate responses to the environment, are important mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and can influence evolution at ecological time scales. In stressful environments, physiological stress responses of individuals are initiated and integrated via the release of hormones, such as corticosterone (CORT). In vertebrates, CORT influences energy metabolism and resource allocation to multiple fitness traits (e.g. growth and morphology) and can be an important mediator of rapid adaptation to environmental stress, such as...

Bottom-up effect of host protective symbionts on parasitoid diversity: Limited evidence from two field experiments

Karthik Sankar Narayan, Christoph Vorburger & Nina Hafer-Hahmann
1. Protective symbionts can provide effective and specific protection to their hosts. This protection can differ between different symbiont strains with each strain providing protection against certain components of the parasite and pathogen community their host faces. Protective symbionts are especially well known from aphids where, among other functions, they provide protection against different parasitoid wasps. However, most of the evidence for this protection comes from laboratory experiments. 2. Our aim was to understand how...

Ecology and evolution of competitive trait variation in natural phytoplankton communities under selection

Irene Gallego & Anita Narwani
Competition for limiting resources is a major force structuring ecological communities. Species minimum resource requirements (R*s) can predict competitive outcomes and evolve under selection in simple communities under controlled conditions. However, whether R*s predict competitive outcomes or demonstrate adaptive evolution in naturally complex communities is unknown. We subjected natural phytoplankton communities to three types of resource limitation (nitrogen, phosphorus, light) in outdoor mesocosms over ten weeks. We examined the community composition weekly and isolated 21...

Timing and synchrony of migration in a freshwater fish: consequences for survival

Kaj Hulthén, Ben Chapman, Anders Nilsson, Lars-Anders Hansson, Christian Skov, Jakob Brodersen & Christer Brönmark
Animal migration is one of the most spectacular and visible behavioural phenomena in nature with profound implications for a range of ecological and evolutionary processes. Successful migration hinges on the ability to exploit temporary resources (e.g. food) and evade threats (e.g. predators) as they arise, and thus the timing of migration is often regarded as a dominant predictor of individual migratory success. However, with the exception of intensively studied taxa (mainly birds), relatively few studies...

Data from: Environmental context determines pollution impacts on ecosystem functioning

Francis Burdon, Marta Reyes, Urs Schönenberger, Katja Räsänen, Scott Tiegs, Eggen Rik & Stamm Christian
Global change assessments have typically ignored synthetic chemical pollution, despite the rapid increase of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and industrial chemicals in the environment. Part of the problem reflects the multifarious origins of these micropollutants, which can derive from urban and agricultural sources. Understanding how micropollutants harm ecosystems is a major scientific challenge due to asymmetries of stress across trophic levels and ecological surprises generated by multiple drivers interacting in human-impacted landscapes. We used field assays above...

Temperature regime during embryogenesis alters subsequent behavioural phenotypes of juvenile brown trout

Kunio Takatsu, Oliver Selz & Jakob Brodersen
Climate warming imposes a serious threat, especially to freshwater ecosystems in temperate and (sub)polar regions, which are often dominated by cold-adapted ectotherms. Although relatively intense warming during winter is common across the climatic regions, comparably little focus has been put on the organismal impacts of winter warming. Embryonic development, which is exceptionally susceptible to ambient temperature, occurs during winter in various freshwater ectotherms. Yet, our knowledge of the effects of increased temperature during embryogenesis on...

Do changes in body mass alter white blood cell profiles and immune function in Australian cane toads (Rhinella marina)?

Gregory P. Brown, Cameron Hudson & Richard Shine
Variation in food resources can result in dramatic fluctuations in the body condition of animals dependent on those resources. Decreases in body mass can disrupt patterns of energy allocation and impose stress, thereby altering immune function. In this study we investigated links between changes in body mass of captive cane toads (Rhinella marina), their circulating white blood cell populations, and their performance in immune assays. Captive toads that lost weight over a 3-month period had...

Similar cost of Hamiltonella defensa in experimental and natural aphid-endosymbiont associations

Heidi Kaech, Christoph Vorburger & Stephanie Jud
Endosymbiont-conferred resistance to parasitoids is common in aphids, but comes at a cost to the host in the absence of parasitoids. In black bean aphids (Aphis fabae), costs in terms of reduced lifespan and lifetime reproduction were demonstrated by introducing eleven isolates of the protective symbiont Hamiltonella defensa into previously uninfected aphid clones. Transfection of H. defensa isolates into a common genetic background allows to compare the costs of different endosymbiont isolates unconfounded by host...

A hotspot of groundwater amphipod diversity on a crossroad of evolutionary radiations

Špela Borko, Florian Altermatt, Maja Zagmajster & Cene Fišer
Supplementary data to article entitled A hotspot of groundwater amphipod diversity on a crossroad of evolutionary radiations Groundwater harbours an exceptional fauna and provides invaluable ecosystem services, yet is among the least explored and consequently least protected ecosystems. Successful protection of its biodiversity depends on complete species inventories, knowledge of species spatial distribution, and quantification of biodiversity patterns, as well as disentanglement of the processes that shaped biodiversity patterns. We studied the hyper-speciose amphipod genus...
