Data from: Integrating reproductive phenology in Ecological Niche Models changed the predicted future ranges of a marine invader

Rosa M. Chefaoui, Alexandra Serebryakova, Aschwin H. Engelen, Frédérique Viard & Ester A. Serrao
Aim: Phenology of a wide diversity of organisms has a dependency on climate, usually with reproductive periods beginning earlier in the year and lasting longer at lower latitudes. Temperature and day length are known environmental drivers of the reproductive timing of many species. Hence, reproductive phenology is sensitive to warming and is important to be considered for reliable predictions of species distributions. This is particularly relevant for rapidly spreading non-indigenous species (NIS). In this study,...

Data from: Fine-scale genetic structure and flowering output of the seagrass Enhalus acoroides undergoing disturbance

Shuo Yu, Yunchao Wu, Ester A. Serrao, Jingping Zhang, Zhijian Jiang, Chi Huang, Lijun Cui, Anitra Thorhaug & Xiaoping Huang
Seagrass are under great stress in the tropical coast of Asia, where Enhalus acoroides is frequently the dominant species with a large food web. Here, we investigate the question of the fine‐scale genetic structure of this ecologically important foundation species, subject to severe anthropogenic disturbance in China. The genetic structure will illuminate potential mechanisms for population dynamics and sustainability, which are critical for preservation of biodiversity and for decision‐making in management and restoration. We evaluated...

Data from: Resolution of the ordinal phylogeny of mosses using targeted exons from organellar and nuclear genomes

Yang Liu, Matthew G. Johnson, Cymon J. Cox, Rafael Medina, Nicolas Devos, Alain Vanderpoorten, Lars Hedenäs, Neil E. Bell, James R. Shevock, Blanka Aguero, Dietmar Quandt, Norman J. Wickett, A. Jonathan Shaw & Bernard Goffinet
Mosses are a highly diverse lineage of land plants, whose diversification, spanning at least 400 million years, remains phylogenetically ambiguous due to the lack of fossils, massive early extinctions, late radiations, limited morphological variation, and conflicting signal among previously used markers. Here, we present phylogenetic reconstructions based on complete organellar exomes and a comparable set of nuclear genes for this major lineage of land plants. Our analysis of 142 species representing 29 of the 30...

Data from: A genome-wide investigation of the worldwide invader Sargassum muticum shows high success albeit (almost) no genetic diversity

Sabrina Le Cam, Claire Daguin-Thiébaut, Sarah Bouchemousse, Aschwin Engelen, Nova Mieszkowska & Frédérique Viard
Twenty-years of genetic studies of marine invaders have shown that successful invaders are often characterized by native and introduced populations displaying similar levels of genetic diversity. This pattern is presumably due to high propagule pressure and repeated introductions. The opposite pattern is reported in this study of the brown seaweed, Sargassum muticum, an emblematic species for circumglobal invasions. Albeit demonstrating polymorphism in the native range, microsatellites failed to detect any genetic variation over 1269 individuals...

Data from: Temperature amplifies the effect of high CO2 on the photosynthesis, respiration and calcification of the coralline algae Phymatolithon lusitanicum

Laura Sordo, Rui Santos, Isabel Barrote & João Silva
The combination of ocean acidification (OA) and global warming is expected to have a significant effect on the diversity and functioning of marine ecosystems, particularly on calcifying algae such as rhodoliths (maërl) that form extensive beds worldwide, from polar to tropical regions. In addition, the increasing frequency of extreme events, such as heatwaves, threaten coastal ecosystems and may affect their capacity to fix blue carbon. The few studies where the simultaneous effects of both temperature...
