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...

Data for: Population genomic insights into invasion success in the polyphagous agricultural pest, Halyomorpha halys

Elahe Parvizi, Manpreet K. Dhami, Juncong Yan & Angela McGaughran
Invasive species are increasingly threatening ecosystems and agriculture by rapidly expanding their range and adapting to environmental and human-imposed selective pressures. The genomic mechanisms that underlie such rapid changes remain unclear, especially for agriculturally important pests. Here, we use genome-wide polymorphisms derived from native, invasive, and intercepted samples and populations of the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), Halyomorpha halys, to gain insights into population genomics processes that have promoted the successful global invasion of this...

Phylogenetic study of the New Caledonian endemic genus Adenodaphne (Lauraceae) confirms its synonymy with Litsea

Jérôme Munzinger, Gordon McPherson, Stacey Meyer & Chrissen Gemmill
The genus Adenodaphne is currently considered endemic to New Caledonia, but its distinction from Litsea is questionable based on morphological similarity. An earlier phylogenetic analysis (ITS) including one species of Adenodaphne and two Asian species of Litsea did support their close relationship but did not permit resolution of their generic boundary. We sampled the four species of Adenodaphne currently recognized (11 accessions) and 11 of the 13 endemic species of Litsea currently recognized, plus one...

Interpreting the mammal deposits of Cloggs Cave (SE Australia), GunaiKurnai Aboriginal Country, through community-led partnership research

Matthew McDowell, Bruno David, Russell Mullett, Joanna Fresløv, Jean-Jacques Delannoy, Jerome Mialanes, Jeremy Ash, Joe Crouch, Fiona Petchey, Jessie Buettel & Lee Arnold
Palaeontological animal bone deposits are rarely investigated through research partnerships where the local First Nations communities have a defining hand in both the research questions asked and the research processes. Here we report research undertaken through such a partnership approach at the iconic archaeological site of Cloggs Cave (GunaiKurnai Country, East Gippsland), in the southern foothills of SE Australia’s Great Dividing Range. A new excavation was combined with detailed chronometric dating, high-resolution 3D mapping, and...
