A trait-based approach across the native and invaded range to understand plant invasiveness and community impact

Kenny Helsen, Hajime Matsushima, Ben Somers & Olivier Honnay
Alien plant species invasiveness and impact on diversity (i.e. species richness and composition) can be driven by the altered competitive interactions experienced by the invader in its invaded range compared to its native range. Trait-based competition effects on invasiveness can be mediated through size-asymmetric competition, i.e. a trait suit of the invader that drives competitive dominance, and through ‘niche differences’, i.e. trait differentiation and thus minimized competition between invader and the invaded community. In terms...

Data from: Prolonged impacts of past agriculture and ungulate overabundance on soil fungal communities in restored forests

Shinichi Tatsumi, Shunsuke Matsuoka, Saori Fujii, Kobayashi Makoto, Takashi Osono, Forest Isbell & Akira Mori
Soil fungi can help improve ecosystem restoration, yet our understanding of how they reassemble in degraded land is limited. Here, using DNA metabarcoding, we studied the fungal community structure in reforested sites following agricultural abandonment and ungulate overabundance. Two treatments, namely ‘reforestation using different numbers of tree species’ and ‘deer exclusion,’ have been applied for multiple decades in the study sites. We found that local fungal richness (alpha diversity) and total fungal richness (gamma diversity)...

Parental population range expansion before secondary contact promotes heterosis

Ailene MacPherson, Silu Wang, Ryo Yamaguchi, Loren Rieseberg & Sarah Otto
Population genomic analysis of hybrid zones is instrumental to our understanding of the evolution of reproductive isolation. Many temperate hybrid zones are formed by the secondary contact between two parental populations that have undergone post-glacial range expansion. Here we show that explicitly accounting for historical parental isolation followed by range expansion prior to secondary contact is fundamental for explaining genetic and fitness patterns in these hybrid zones. Specifically, ancestral population expansion can result in allele...

Incomplete thermal ablation-induced up-regulation of transcription factor nuclear receptor subfamily 2, group F, member 6 (NR2F6) contributes to the rapid progression of residual liver tumor in hepatoblastoma

Hepatoblastoma is a kind of extreme malignancy frequently diagnosed in children. Although surgical resection is considered as the first-line treatment for hepatoblastoma, a relatively large population of patients have lost the preferred opportunity for surgery. Administration of locoregional ablation enables local tumor control but with the deficiency of insufficient ablation, residual tumor, and rapid progression. In this study, we integrated 219 hepatoblastoma and 121 non-cancer liver tissues to evaluate the expression of NR2F6, from which...

Venus Climate Orbiter Akatsuki Cloud Motion Vector Data Set

Takeshi Horinouchi, Shin-ya Murakami, Kazunori Ogohara, Toru Kouyama & Masahiro Takagi
This dataset contains cloud motion vector data acquired by the automated cloud tracking from images of the UVI and IR2 instruments of the Venus Climate Orbiter (VCO, also known as PLANET-C and AKATSUKI) spacecraft. This dataset consists of NetCDF files. This dataset is produced from the longitude-latitude map datasets.
