Raster and original working data for the paper Holocene matters: landscape history accounts for current species richness of vascular plants in forests and grasslands of eastern Central Europe

Michal Hájek & Jan Divíšek
Aim: Current species-richness patterns are sometimes interpreted as a legacy of landscape history, but historical processes shaping the distribution of species during the Holocene are frequently omitted in biodiversity models. Here, we test their importance in modelling current species richness of vascular plants in forest and grassland vegetation. Location: Western Carpathians and adjacent regions. Taxon: Vascular plants. Methods: Numbers of all species and of habitat specialists were extracted from plot records of forest and grassland...

Data from: Cross-sectional study of patients with axial spondyloarthritis fulfilling imaging arm of ASAS classification criteria: baseline clinical characteristics and subset differences in a single centre cohort

Objective: This study compared demographic, clinical and laboratory characteristics between patients with radiographic and non-radiographic axSpA. Methods: In this single centre cross-sectional study a total of 246 patients with axSpA fulfilling the imaging arm of ASAS classification criteria were recruited. A total of 140 patients were diagnosed as nr-axSpA, and 106 patients had AS. Sociodemographic characteristics, disease manifestations, clinical and laboratory disease activity and their differences between subsets were analysed. P values below 0.05 with...

Habitats of Pleistocene megaherbivores reconstructed from the frozen fauna remains

The Late Pleistocene landscape in northern Eurasia and North America was inhabited by a specific megafaunal complex, which largely disappeared during the Pleistocene/Holocene transition. Vegetation changes are considered as one of the factors responsible for these extinctions, but the structure and composition of the Pleistocene vegetation are still poorly known. Here we complement previous studies by comparing the taxonomic composition of the plant remains found in the gastrointestinal tracts of the frozen carcasses of Pleistocene...

Data from: Selection on multiple sexual signals in two Central- and Eastern-European populations of the barn swallow

Variation in intensity and targets of sexual selection on multiple traits has been suggested to play a major role in promoting phenotypic differentiation between populations, although the divergence in selection may depend on year, local conditions or age. In this study, we quantified sexual selection for two putative sexual signals across two Central and East European barn swallow (Hirundo rustica rustica) populations from Czech Republic and Romania over multiple years. We then related these differences...
