Data from: On the equivalence of host local adaptation and parasite maladaptation: an experimental test

Mélissa Lemoine, Blandine Doligez & Heinz Richner
In spatio-temporally varying environments, host-parasite coevolution may lead to either host or parasite local adaptation. Using reciprocal infestations over 11 pairs of plots, we tested local adaptation in the hen flea and its main host, the great tit. Flea reproductive success (number of adult at host fledging) was lower on host individuals from the same plot compared to foreign hosts (from another plot), revealing flea local maladaptation. Host reproductive success (number of fledged young) was...

Data from: Is diversification history of maize influencing selection of soil bacteria by roots?

Marie-Lara Bouffaud, Martina Kyselková, Brigitte Gouesnard, Genevieve Grundmann, Daniel Muller & Yvan Moënne-Loccoz
A wide range of plant lines has been propagated by farmers during crop selection and dissemination, but consequences of this crop diversification on plant-microbe interactions have been neglected. Our hypothesis was that crop evolutionary history shaped the way the resulting lines interact with soil bacteria in their rhizospheres. Here, the significance of maize diversification as a factor influencing selection of soil bacteria by seedling roots was assessed by comparing rhizobacterial community composition of inbred lines...

Data from: The use of MSR (Minimum Sample Richness) for sample assemblage comparisons

Kenny J. Travouillon, Gilles Escarguel, Serge Legendre, Michael Archer & Suzanne J. Hand
Minimum Sample Richness (MSR) is defined as the smallest number of taxa that must be recorded in a sample to achieve a given level of inter-assemblage classification accuracy. MSR is calculated from known or estimated richness and taxonomic similarity. Here we test MSR for strengths and weaknesses by using 167 published mammalian local faunas from the Paleogene and early Neogene of the Query and Liane area (Massif Central, southwestern France), and then apply MSR to...
