Niches and radiations: A case study on the Andean Sapphire-vented Puffleg (Eriocnemis luciani) and Coppery-naped Puffleg (E. sapphiropygia) (Aves, Trochilidae)

Paolo Ramoni-Perazzi, Karl-L. Schuchmann, André Weller, Irma Alejandra Soto-Werschitz & Marcelo Passamani
The interaction between ecology and evolution, particularly with regard to speciation processes, remains a main topic of scientific research. Andean hummingbirds have undergone a remarkable radiation, with many species exhibiting patchy distributions and, in some cases, taxonomic controversy. An example is the Sapphire-vented Puffleg (Eriocnemis luciani; ssp. baptistae, luciani, and meridae), which some authors merge with the Coppery-naped Puffleg (E. sapphiropygia; ssp. catharina and sapphiropygia). Each group is distributed either north or south from the...

Data from: Interactions among morphotype, nutrition, and temperature impact fitness of an invasive fly.

Invasive animals depend on finding a balanced nutritional intake to colonize, survive, and reproduce in new environments. This can be especially challenging during situations of fluctuating cold temperatures and food scarcity, but phenotypic plasticity may offer an adaptive advantage during these periods. We examined how lifespan, fecundity, pre-oviposition periods, and body nutrient contents were affected by dietary protein and carbohydrate (P:C) ratios at variable low temperatures in two morphs (winter morphs WM and summer morphs...
