Data from: Empirical evidence for species-specific export of fish naïveté from a no-take marine protected area in a coastal recreational hook and line fisheryJosep Alós, Antoni Puiggrós, Carlos Díaz-Gil, Miquel Palmer, Rosario Rosselló & Robert Arlinghaus
No-take marine protected areas (MPAs) are assumed to enhance fisheries catch via the “spillover” effect, where biomass is exported to adjacent exploited areas. Recent studies in spearfishing fisheries suggest that the spillover of gear-naïve individuals from protected to unprotected sites increases catch rates outside the boundaries of MPAs. Whether this is a widespread phenomenon that also holds for other gear types and species is unknown. In this study, we tested if the distance to a...
Data from: Moderation is best: effects of grazing intensity on plant-flower visitor networks in Mediterranean communitiesAmparo Lázaro, Thomas Tscheulin, Jelle Devalez, Georgios Nakas, Anastasia Stefanaki, Effie Hanlidou & Theodora Petanidou
The structure of pollination networks is an important indicator of ecosystem stability and functioning. Livestock grazing is a frequent land use practice that directly affects the abundance and diversity of flowers and pollinators and, therefore, may indirectly affect the structure of pollination networks. Here we studied how grazing intensity affected the structure of plant-flower visitor networks along a wide range of grazing intensities by sheep and goats, using data from 11 Mediterranean plant-flower visitor communities...
Data from: Divergent effects of forest edges on host distribution and seed disperser activity influence mistletoe distribution and recruitmentAinhoa Magrach, Javier Rodriguez-Perez, Martin Piazzon & Luis Santamaria
1. Species interactions define functional diversity and community stability across ecosystems, and depend on the spatial distribution, the habitat requirements, and the sensitivity to disturbances of all interacting partners. Hence, assessing the effects of such anthropogenic disturbances on multi-species interactions may be essential to improve adaptation and mitigation measures for biodiversity conservation. 2. We determined the importance of edge effects on the interaction and distribution of three keystone species in South American temperate rainforests: the...
