Data from: Effects of phylogenetic reconstruction method on the robustness of species delimitation using single-locus data

Cuong Q. Tang, Aelys M. Humphreys, Diego Fontaneto & Timothy G. Barraclough
1. Coalescent-based species delimitation methods combine population genetic and phylogenetic theory to provide an objective means for delineating evolutionarily significant units of diversity. The Generalized Mixed Yule Coalescent (GMYC) and the Poisson Tree Process (PTP) are methods that use ultrametric (GMYC or PTP) or non-ultrametric (PTP) gene trees as input, intended for use mostly with single-locus data such as DNA barcodes. 2. Here we assess how robust the GMYC and PTP are to different phylogenetic...

Data from: MHC genotype predicts mate choice in the ring-necked pheasant Phasianus colchicus

Females of several vertebrate species selectively mate with males on the basis of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes. As androgen-mediated maternal effects have long-lasting consequences for the adult phenotype, both mating and reproductive success may depend on the combined effect of MHC genotype and exposure to androgens during early ontogeny. We studied how MHC-based mate choice in ring-necked pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) was influenced by an experimental in ovo testosterone (T) increase. There was no...

Data from: \"Diagnostic SNPs for inferring population structure in American mink (Neovison vison) identified through RAD sequencing\" in Genomic Resources Notes accepted 1 October 2014 to 30 November 2014

Nielsen, Ettore Randi, Andrzej Zalewski, Cino Pertoldi, Mariella Baratti, Tiziana Di Lorenzo, Alessio Iannucci, Diana Maria Paola Galassi, Valentina Iannilli, Just Jensen, Dragos Postolache & Giovanni Giuseppe Vendramin
The article documents the public availability of RAD sequencing data and generated SNPs for the American mink (Neovison vison). 224,095 polymorphic loci were identified from 14 mink from which primers were designed for a subset of 380 SNPs. The panel was tested on 211 mink. Fisher’s F-statistics (Fis, FIT and FST) as well as observed (HO), expected (HE) and unbiased expected (uHE) heterozygosity was calculated for the SNPs and 194 SNPs was validated as being...

Data from: The last 50 years of climate-induced melting of the Maliy Aktru glacier (Altai Mountains, Russia) revealed in a primary ecological succession

Roberto Cazzolla Gatti, Anastasia Dudko, Artem Lim, Alena I. Velichevskaya, Inna V. Lushchaeva, Alice V. Pivovarova, Stefano Ventura, Erica Lumini, Andrea Berruti & Igor V. Volkov
In this article, we report and discuss the results obtained from a survey of plants, microorganisms (bacteria and fungi), and soil elements along a chronosequence in the first 600 m of the Maliy Aktru glacier's forefront (Altai Mountains, Russia). Many glaciers of the world show effects of climate change. Nonetheless, except for some local reports, the ecological effects of deglaciation have been poorly studied and have not been quantitatively assessed in the Altai Mountains. Here,...

Data from: Constitutive presence of antibiotic resistance genes within the bacterial community of a large subalpine lake

Andrea Di Cesare, Ester M. Eckert, Alessia Teruggi, Diego Fontaneto, Roberto Bertoni, Cristiana Callieri & Gianluca Corno
The fate of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in environmental microbial communities is of primary concern as prodromal of a potential transfer to pathogenic bacteria. Although of diverse origin, the persistence of ARGs in aquatic environments is highly influenced by anthropic activities, allowing potential control actions in well-studied environments. However, knowledge of abundance and space–time distribution of ARGs in ecosystems is still scarce. Using quantitative real-time PCR, we investigated the presence and the abundance of twelve...
