MAConDA. Le Mostre d´Arte Moderna nelle Gallerie private in Italia: i due decenni cruciali 1960 - 1980. Mostre

Flavio Fergonzi, Giorgio Zanchetti & Barbara Cinelli
Nell'ambito degli obiettivi primari del progetto MAConDA, la ricerca è partita dalla constatazione della difficile, e in qualche caso proibitiva, accessibilità nelle biblioteche pubbliche (e anche in quelle specialistiche di storia dell'arte) di cataloghi, pieghevoli, inviti e altri materiali di galleria che documentano le mostre in oggetto: mostre che, nel periodo preso in esame, sono state spesso decisive per la storia delle esposizioni perchè hanno iniziato una vera e propria rivoluzione nel rapporto tra l'opera...

Visual recognition and coevolutionary history drive responses of amphibians to an invasive predator

Andrea Melotto, Gentile Francesco Ficetola, Elisa Alari, Samuele Romagnoli & Raoul Manenti
During biotic invasions, native prey are abruptly exposed to novel predators and are faced with unprecedented predatory pressures. Under these circumstances, the lack of common evolutionary history may hamper predator recognition by native prey, undermining the expression of effective anti-predatory responses. Nonetheless, mechanisms allowing prey to overcome evolutionary naïveté exist. For instance, in naïve prey, history of coevolution with similar native predators or recognition of general traits characterizing predators can favor recognition of stimuli released...

Optimal sequence similarity thresholds for clustering of molecular operational taxonomic units in DNA metabarcoding studies

Aurélie Bonin, Alessia Guerrieri & Gentile F. Ficetola
Clustering approaches are pivotal to handle the many sequence variants obtained in DNA metabarcoding datasets, therefore they have become a key step of metabarcoding analysis pipelines. Clustering often relies on a sequence similarity threshold to gather sequences in Molecular Operational Taxonomic Units (MOTUs), each of which ideally representing a homogeneous taxonomic entity, e.g. a species or a genus. However, the choice of the clustering threshold is rarely justified, and its impact on MOTU over-splitting or...

MAConDA, Le Mostre d´Arte Moderna nelle Gallerie private in Italia: i due decenni cruciali 1960 - 1980. Gallerie

Flavio Fergonzi, Giorgio Zanchetti & Barbara Cinelli
Nell'ambito del Progetto MACoNDA l'interrogazione trasversale di questa banca dati permette di ricostruire l'attività espositiva delle gallerie, con le opere esposte e i testi critici che le hanno accompagnate; confrontare le vicende artistiche delle tre città guida dell'arte moderna in Italia in modi che sono sfuggiti, fino a oggi, negli studi; campionare l'accessibilità visiva delle opere attraverso la diffusione delle loro riproduzioni; avvicinare alla conoscenza, con una documentazione più fondata, delle strategie del mercato dell'arte;...

Archived data for: Balancing selection, genetic drift, and human mediated-introgression interplay to shape MHC (functional) diversity in Mediterranean brown trout

Lorenzo Talarico, Silvio Marta, Anna Rita Rossi, Simone Crescenzo, Gerardo Petrosino, Marco Martinoli & Lorenzo Tancioni
The extraordinary polymorphism of Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) genes is considered a paradigm of pathogen-mediated balancing selection, although empirical evidence is still scarce. Furthermore, the relative contribution of balancing selection to shape MHC population structure and diversity, compared to that of neutral forces, as well as its interaction with other evolutionary processes such as hybridization, remains largely unclear. To investigate these issues, we analysed adaptive (MHC-DAB gene) and neutral (11 microsatellite loci) variation in 156...

Functional biogeography of Neotropical moist forests: trait-climate relationships and assembly patterns of tree communities

Bruno Pinho, Marcelo Tabarelli, Cajo Ter Braak, S. J. Wright, Victor Arroyo-Rodriguez, Maíra Benchimol, Bettina Engelbrecht, Simon Pierce, Peter Hietz, Bráulio Santos, Carlos Peres, Sandra Müller, Ian Wright, Frans Bongers, Madelon Lohbeck, Ülo Niinemets, Martijn Slot, Steven Jansen, Davi Jamelli, Renato Augusto Ferreira De Lima, Nathan Swenson, Richard Condit, Jos Barlow, Ferry Slik, Manuel Hernández-Ruedas … & Felipe Melo
Aim: Here we examine the functional profile of regional tree species pools across the latitudinal distribution of Neotropical moist forests, and test trait-climate relationships among local communities. We expected opportunistic strategies (acquisitive traits, small seeds) to be overrepresented in species pools further from the equator due to long-term instability, but also in terms of abundance in local communities in currently wetter, warmer and more seasonal climates. Location: Neotropics. Time period: Recent. Major taxa studied: Trees....

Geographic variation in body size and plumage colour according to diet composition in a nocturnal raptor

Andrea Romano, Robin Séchaud & Alexandre Roulin
Predator–prey interactions are amongst the strongest selective forces that promote the evolution of local phenotypes in both predators and prey. However, intraspecific spatial covariation in phenotypic traits between predators and prey has been rarely investigated, especially at a large geographic scale. Here, we studied the covariation between prey composition and some phenotypic traits, such as wing length, bill length and plumage colour, of a widely-distributed nocturnal predator, the western barn owl Tyto alba. By using...

Data for Characterizing the spatial signal of environmental DNA in river systems using a community ecology approach

Isabel Cantera
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is gaining a growing popularity among scientists but its applicability to biodiversity research and management remains limited in river systems by the lack of knowledge about the spatial extent of the downstream transport of eDNA. Here, we assessed the ability of eDNA inventories to retrieve spatial patterns of fish assemblages along two large and species rich Neotropical rivers. We first examined overall community variation with distance through the distance decay of similarity...
