Genotypes at 10 microsatellite loci for 8 perennial, polygyne colonies of Vespula squamosa

Carl Dyson
Many highly social species show plasticity in their social structure in response to different environmental conditions. For example, typical colonies of the yellowjacket wasp Vespula squamosa are headed by a single reproductive queen and survive for only a single season. However, in warmer climates, V. squamosa colonies sometimes persist for multiple years and can grow to extremely large size. We used genetic markers to understand patterns of reproduction and recruitment within these perennial colonies. We...

Dispersal increases spatial synchrony of populations but has weak effects on population variability: a meta-analysis

Qi Yang, Pubin Hong, Mingyu Luo, Lin Jiang & Shaopeng Wang
The effects of dispersal on spatial synchrony and population variability have been well documented in theoretical research, and a growing number of empirical tests have been performed. Yet a synthesis is still lacking. Here, we conducted a meta-analysis of relevant experiments and examined how dispersal affected spatial synchrony and temporal population variability across scales. Our analyses showed that dispersal generally promoted spatial synchrony, and such effects increased with dispersal rate and decreased with environmental correlation...

Intra-annual species gain overrides species loss in determining species richness in a typical steppe ecosystem after a decade of nitrogen enrichment

Ming Zhao, Hongxiang Zhang, Baskin Carol, Cunzheng Wei, Junjie Yang, Yunhai Zhang, Yong Jiang, Lin Jiang & Xingguo Han
Increasing deposition of atmospheric nitrogen (N) due to accelerated human activities is a threat to various ecosystems. However, there is a lack of long-term experimental evidence demonstrating the seasonal dynamics of plant species turnover that ultimately determine species richness in natural ecosystems under N enrichment. Moreover, the frequency of N addition also may affect species turnover in a community, but it is rarely studied. To assess the responses of a plant community to N addition,...

Knifefish turning performance during forward swimming

Olivia Hawkins, Victor Ortega-Jimenez & Christopher Sanford
Rapid turning and swimming contribute to ecologically important behaviors in fishes such as predator avoidance, prey capture, mating, and the navigation of complex environments. For riverine species, such as knifefishes, that are commonly challenged by turbulent flows, turning control may be effective for counteracting adverse locomotive perturbations. Most research on fish maneuvering focuses on fish with traditional fin and body morphologies, which primarily use body bending and the pectoral fins during turning. However, it is...

Data from: Thalamic bursting and the role of timing and synchrony in thalamocortical signaling in the awake mouse

Garrett Stanley, Peter Borden, Nathaniel Wright, Arthur Morrissette, Dieter Jaeger & Bilal Haider
The thalamus controls transmission of sensory signals from periphery to cortex, ultimately shaping perception. Despite this significant role, dynamic thalamic gating and the consequences for downstream cortical sensory representations have not been well studied in the awake brain. We optogenetically modulated the ventro-posterior medial thalamus in the vibrissa pathway of the awake mouse, and measured spiking activity in the thalamus, and activity in primary somatosensory cortex (S1) using extracellular electrophysiology and genetically encoded voltage imaging....

The impact of species phylogenetic relatedness on invasion varies distinctly along resource versus nonresource environmental gradients

Guoyan Wang, Xiaojuan Zhang, Jing-Ji Li, Songlin Shi, Tingbin Zhang, Xiaojuan Bie, Xu Chen, Pei-Hao Peng & Lin Jiang
Understanding why certain plant communities are vulnerable to alien invasive species is essential to predicting and controlling invasion in a changing environment. Darwin’s naturalization hypothesis suggests that non-native species should be more successful in communities where their close relatives are absent. Empirical tests of this hypothesis, however, have produced mixed results. Using plot-level data from natural forests along elevational transects covering strong environmental gradients, we examined whether the invasion of the globally invasive species Ageratina...
