Data from: Alien species spreading via biofouling on recreational vessels in the Mediterranean Sea

1. Despite the Mediterranean being both a hotspot for recreational boating and for non-indigenous species (NIS), no data currently exists on the recreational boating sector’s contribution to the spread of NIS in this Sea. 2. To improve the basis for management decisions, a wide-scale sampling study on the biofouling communities of recreational vessels and marinas was undertaken. Specifically, we surveyed over 600 boat owners and sampled the same boat hulls for NIS in 25 marinas...

Data from: Network-scale effects of invasive species on spatially-structured amphibian populations

Raoul Manenti, Mattia Falaschi, Daniele Delle Monache, Silvio Marta & Francesco Ficetola
Understanding the factors affecting the dynamics of spatially-structured populations (SSP) is a central topic of conservation and landscape ecology. Invasive alien species are increasingly important drivers of the dynamics of native species. However, the impacts of invasives are often assessed at the patch scale, while their effects on SSP dynamics are rarely considered. We used long-term abundance data to test whether the impact of invasive crayfish on subpopulations can also affect the whole SSP dynamics,...

Objective: To estimate the prevalence of Joubert syndrome (JS) in Italy applying standards of descriptive epidemiology, and to provide a molecular characterization of the described patients cohort. Methods: We enrolled all patients with a neuroradiologically confirmed diagnosis of JS and resident in Italy in 2018, and calculated age and sex prevalence, assuming a Poisson distribution. We also investigated the correlation between proband chronological age and age at diagnosis, and performed Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis on...
