Assessment of the stream invertebrate β-diversity along an elevation gradient using a bidimensional null model analysis

Pablo Timoner, Pierre Marle, Emmanuel Castella & Anthony Lehmann
Aim: β-Diversity, commonly defined as the compositional variation among localities that links local diversity (α‐diversity) and regional diversity (γ‐diversity), can arise from two different ecological phenomena, namely the spatial species turnover (i.e. species replacement) and the nestedness of assemblages (i.e. species loss). However, any assessment that does not account for stochasticity in community assembly could be biased and misinform conservation management. In this study, we aimed to provide a better understanding of the overall ecological...

A new radar-based statistical model to quantify mass eruption rate of volcanic plumes (RadMER)

Luigi Mereu, Simona Scollo, Alexander Garcia, Laura Sandri, Costanza Bonadonna & Frank Silvio Marzano
We combine values of column height HTP and mass eruption rate QM, radar derived, including the associated wind velocity (vW) for several eruptive events of Mt. Etna (Italy). Hence, we use a Monte Carlo Markov Chain approach to fit a parametric model relating HTP, QM and vW. The fitted model can then be used to quickly infer QM from observed HTP and vW. An outstanding feature is that HTP and QM are obtained from the...

High resolution ancient sedimentary DNA shows that alpine plant diversity is associated with human land use and climate change

Sandra Garcés-Pastor, Eric Coissac, Sébastien Lavergne, Christoph Schwörer, Jean-Paul Theurillat, Peter D. Heintzman, Owen Wangensteen, Willy Tinner, Fabian Rey, Martina Lia Heer, Astrid Rutzer, Kevin Walsh, Youri Lammers, Antony G. Brown, Tomasz Goslar, Dilli P. Rijal, Dirk N. Karger, Loïc Pellissier, Group PhyloAlps Consortium, Oliver Heiri & Inger Greve Alsos
The European Alps are highly rich in species, but their future may be threatened by ongoing changes in human land use and climate. Here, we reconstructed vegetation, temperature, human impact and livestock over the past ~12,000 years from Lake Sulsseewli, based on sedimentary ancient plant and mammal DNA, pollen, spores, chironomids, and microcharcoal. We assembled a highly-complete local DNA reference library (PhyloAlps, 3,923 plant taxa), and used this to obtain an exceptionally rich sedaDNA record...

Supporting data for: Limited genetic differentiation of Mycetomoellerius mikromelanos in Parc National Soberanía, Panama: Implications for queen dispersal

Cody Raul Cardenas, Andrew Mularo, Andreas Chavez & Rachelle Adams
The coevolutionary relationship between fungus-growing ants (Formicidae: Attini: Attina) and their symbionts has been well-studied in the Panamanian rainforests. To further understand the ecological context of these evolutionary relationships, we have examined the population genetic structure of the fungus-growing ant species Mycetomoellerius mikromelanos Cardenas, Schultz, & Adams 2021, in the Panama Canal Zone. We specifically investigated the presence of population structure, the significance of geographic features (i.e., creeks) limiting gene flow, and relatedness between ant...

Social-ecological cascade effects of land-use on vertebrate pest dynamics in arid agricultural communities

Amir Lewin, Joseph Erinjery, Doron Nissim & Takuya Iwamura
Extensive land conversion to agriculture in drylands and associated resource use have wide-ranging impacts on desert ecosystems globally. Incorporating the impacts of human-social aspects is thus imperative in examining ecological interactions. The provision of agricultural inputs in these resource-scarce regions supports invasive and pest species, negatively impacting both agricultural productivity and native desert ecosystems. Understanding the spatial dynamics of invasive and pest species requires analyzing both bottom-up resource availability factors underlying animal distributions and top-down...

Loricarioid catfish evolved skin denticles that recapitulate teeth at the structural, developmental, and genetic levels (raw RNAseq reads)

Carlos Javier Rivera-Rivera, Nadezhda I. Guevara-Delgadillo, Ilham A. Bahechar, Claire A. Shea & Juan Ignacio Montoya-Burgos
The first vertebrate mineralized skeleton was an external bony armor coated with dental structures. The subsequent emergence of a mineralized endoskeleton and of teeth are considered key innovations in the diversification of vertebrates. Although time clouds our understanding of the initial evolution of these mineralized structures, recent re-emergences may shed light on the underlying processes. Loricarioid catfishes are a lineage that, much like the ancestral vertebrates, bear denticle-clad bony armor from head to tail. Loricarioid...

Compiled call report data for: Financial intermediation, capital accumulation and crisis recovery

Martin Scheffel, Hans Gersbach & Jean-Charles Rochet
We integrate bank and bond financing into a two-sector neoclassical growth model and identify an automatic stabilization effect due to endogenous bank leverage adjustment. We show that although bank leverage amplifies shocks, the increase of leverage due to a decline in bank equity partially offsets the post-crisis decline of bank lending and accelerates economic recovery by reducing the persistence of the bank lending channel. In this case, endogenous leverage adjustment is an automatic stabilizer. Regulatory...
