Data from: Vicariance and marine migration in continental island populations of a frog endemic to the Atlantic Coastal forest

M. Catherine Duryea, Kelly R. Zamudio & Cinthia A. Brasileiro
The theory of island biogeography is most often studied in the context of oceanic islands where all island inhabitants are descendants from founding events involving migration from mainland source populations. Far fewer studies have considered predictions of island biogeography in the case of continental islands, where island formation typically splits continuous populations and thus vicariance also contributes to the diversity of island populations. We examined one such case on continental islands in southeastern Brazil, to...

Data from: Dogs recognize dog and human emotions

Natalia Albuquerque, Kun Guo, Anna Wilkinson, Carine Savalli, Emma Otta & Daniel Mills
The perception of emotional expressions allows animals to evaluate the social intentions and motivations of each other. This usually takes place within species; however, in the case of domestic dogs, it might be advantageous to recognize the emotions of humans as well as other dogs. In this sense, the combination of visual and auditory cues to categorize others' emotions facilitates the information processing and indicates high-level cognitive representations. Using a cross-modal preferential looking paradigm, we...

Data from: Musculoskeletal pain as a marker of health quality. Findings from the epidemiological sleep study among the adult population of São Paulo city

Suely Roizenblatt, Altay L. Souza, Luciana Palombini, Luciana M. Godoy, Sergio Tufik & Lia Rita A. Bittencourt
Background: We are witnessing the growth of urban populations, particularly in the developing world. São Paulo, the largest city in South America, continues to grow, and this growth is dramatically effecting the environment and human health. The aim of this study was to estimate the point prevalence of chronic pain in São Paulo city dwellers and to explore the influence of aspects related to urbanicity. Methods: A two-stage cluster randomized sample included 1100 individuals of...

Data from: Ultraconserved elements sequencing as a low-cost source of complete mitochondrial genomes and microsatellite markers in non-model amniotes

Fábio Raposo Do Amaral, Leandro G. Neves, , Flávia Mobili, Cristina Y. Miyaki, Katia C. M. Pellegrino & Cibele Biondo
Sequence capture of ultraconserved elements (UCEs) associated with massively parallel sequencing has become a common source of nuclear data for studies of animal systematics and phylogeography. However, mitochondrial and microsatellite variation are still commonly used in various kinds of molecular studies, and probably will complement genomic data in years to come. Here we show that besides providing abundant genomic data, UCE sequencing is an excellent source of both sequences for microsatellite loci design and complete...
