Data from: Hybrid chickadees are deficient in learning and memory

Michael A. McQuillan, , Alex V. Huynh & Amber M. Rice
Identifying the phenotypes underlying postzygotic reproductive isolation is crucial for fully understanding the evolution and maintenance of species. One potential postzygotic isolating barrier that has rarely been examined is learning and memory ability in hybrids. Learning and memory are important fitness-related traits, especially in scatter-hoarding species, where accurate retrieval of hoarded food is vital for winter survival. Here, we test the hypothesis that learning and memory ability can act as a postzygotic isolating barrier by...

Source Data for Crowdsourcing Bridge Dynamic Monitoring with Smartphone Vehicle Trips

Thomas Matarazzo, Daniel Kondor, Sebastiano Milardo, Soheil Eshkevari, Paolo Santi, Shamim Pakzad, Markus Buehler & Carlo Ratti
This data accompanies the study "Crowdsourcing Bridge Dynamic Monitoring with Smartphone Vehicle Trips" published in (Nature) Communications Engineering. This paper focuses on using large and inexpsensive datasets for obtaining information on the dynamics of bridges. In this study, data is collected by smartphones in moving vehicles as the cross over a bridge, in three distinct applications. Smartphone data was collected in controlled field experiments and uncontrolled Uber rides on a long-span suspension bridge in the...

Improved biodiversity detection using a large-volume environmental DNA sampler with in situ filtration and implications for marine eDNA sampling strategies

Annette Govindarajan, Luke McCartin, Allan Adams, Elizabeth Allan, Abhimanyu Belani, Rene Francolini, Justin Fujii, Daniel Gomez-Ibanez, Amy Kukulya, Frederick Marin, Kaitlyn Tradd, Dana Yoerger, Jill McDermott & Santiago Herrera
Metabarcoding analysis of environmental DNA samples is a promising new tool for marine biodiversity and conservation. Typically, seawater samples are obtained using Niskin bottles and filtered to collect eDNA. However, standard sample volumes are small relative to the scale of the environment, conventional collection strategies are limited, and the filtration process is time consuming. To overcome these limitations, we developed a new large – volume eDNA sampler with in situ filtration, capable of taking up...

All-atom molecular dynamics simulations of synaptic vesicle fusion I: a glimpse at the primed Synaptotagmin-SNARE-complexin complex

Josep Rizo, Levent Sari, Yifei Qi, Wonpil Im & Milo Lin
Synaptic vesicles are primed into a state that is ready for fast neurotransmitter release upon Ca2+-binding to Syt1. This state likely includes trans-SNARE complexes between the vesicle and plasma membranes that are bound to Syt1 and complexins. However, the nature of this state and the steps leading to membrane fusion are unclear, in part because of the difficulty of studying this dynamic process experimentally. To shed light into these questions, we performed all-atom molecular dynamics...

Novel husbandry practices result in rapid rates of growth and sexual maturation without impacting adult behavior in the blind Mexican cavefish

Robert Kozol, Anders Yuiska, John Han, Bernadeth Tolentino, Arthur Lapatto, Peter Lewis, Alexandra Paz, Alex Keene, Johanna Kowalko & Erik Duboue
The development of animal model systems is dependent on the standardization of husbandry protocols that increase fecundity and reduce generation time. The blind Mexican tetra, Astyanax mexicanus, is an emerging genetic vertebrate model for evolution and biomedical research. Surface and cave populations of A. mexicanus have independently evolved, providing a model system for studying the genetic basis of divergent biological traits. While a rapid increase in the use of A. mexicanus has led to the...

Maps of northern peatland extent, depth, carbon storage and nitrogen storage

Gustaf Hugelius, Julie Loisel, Sarah Chadburn, Robert B. Jackson, Miriam Jones, Glen MacDonald, Maija Marushchak, David Olefeldt, Maara Packalen, Matthias B. Siewert, Claire Treat, Merritt Turestsky, Carolina Voigt & Zicheng Yu
This dataset is grids of peatland extent, peat depth, peatland organic carbon storage, peatland total nitrogen storage and approximate extent of ombrotrophic/minerotrophic peatlands. The grids are geotiff files in 10 km pixel resolution projected in the World Azimuthal Equidistant projection. Note that the peat depth grid shows potential peat depth everywhere,also where there is no peatland cover. For files on peatland organic carbon, total nitrogen extent and extent of ombrotrophic/minerotrophic peatlands, there are separate files...

Data from: Gene expression profiling reveals deep-sea coral response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill

Danielle M. DeLeo, Santiago Herrera, Stephen D. Lengyel, Andrea M. Quattrini, Rob J. Kulathinal & Erik E. Cordes
Deep-sea coral communities are key components of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem and were adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill. Coral colonies exposed to oil and dispersant exhibited mortality, damage, and physiological signatures of stress. Understanding how corals respond to oil and dispersant exposure at the molecular level is important to elucidate the sub-lethal effects of the DWH disaster, and reveal broader patterns of coral stress responses. Gene expression profiles from RNAseq...

Data from: Low fertility of wild hybrid male flycatchers despite recent divergence

Murielle Ålund, Simone Immler, Amber M. Rice, Anna Qvarnström, M. Alund & A. Qvarnstrom
Postzygotic isolation may be important for maintaining species boundaries, particularly when premating barriers are incomplete. Little is known about the course of events leading from minor environmental mismatches affecting hybrid fitness to severe genetic incompatibilities causing sterility or inviability. We investigated whether reduced reproductive success of hybrid males was caused by suboptimal sperm traits or by more severe genetic incompatibilities in a hybrid zone of pied (Ficedula hypoleuca) and collared flycatchers (F. albicollis) on the...

Data from: Positive feedback between ecological and reproductive character displacement in a young avian hybrid zone

Niclas Vallin, Amber M. Rice, Richard I. Bailey, Arild Husby & Anna Qvarnström
Character displacement can reduce costly interspecific interactions between young species. We investigated the mechanisms behind divergence in three key traits - breeding habitat choice, timing of breeding and plumage coloration - in Ficedula flycatchers. We found that male pied flycatchers became expelled from the preferred deciduous habitat into mixed forest as the superior competitor, collared flycatchers, increased in numbers. The peak in food abundance differs between habitats, and the spatial segregation was paralleled by an...

Data from: Universal target-enrichment baits for anthozoan (Cnidaria) phylogenomics: new approaches to long-standing problems

Andrea M. Quattrini, Brant C. Faircloth, Luisa F. Dueñas, Thomas C.L. Bridge, Mercer R. Brügler, Ivan F. Calixto-Botía, Danielle M. DeLeo, Sylvain Foret, Santiago Herrera, Simon M.Y. Lee, David J. Miller, Carlos Prada, Gandhi Rádis-Baptista, Catalina Ramírez-Portilla, Juan A. Sánchez, Estefania Rodriguez, Catherine S. McFadden, Tom C. L. Bridge & Simon M. Y. Lee
Anthozoans (e.g., corals, anemones) are an ecologically important and diverse group of marine metazoans that occur from shallow to deep waters worldwide. However, our understanding of the evolutionary relationships among the ~7500 species within this class is hindered by the lack of phylogenetically informative markers that can be reliably sequenced across a diversity of taxa. We designed and tested 16,308 RNA baits to capture 720 Ultraconserved Element loci and 1,071 exon loci. Library preparation and...
