eDNA metabarcoding survey reveals fine-scale coral reef community variation across a remote, tropical island ecosystem

Katrina West, Michael Stat, Euan Harvey, Craig Skepper, Joseph DiBattista, Zoe Richards, Michael Travers, Stephen Newman & Michael Bunce
Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding, a technique for retrieving multi-species DNA from environmental samples, can detect a diverse array of marine species from filtered seawater samples. There is a growing potential to integrate eDNA alongside existing monitoring methods in order to establish or improve the assessment of species diversity. Remote island reefs are increasingly vulnerable to climate-related threats and as such there is a pressing need for efficient whole-ecosystem surveying approaches to baseline biodiversity, study assemblage...

Gene validation and remodelling using proteogenomics of Phytophthora cinnamomi, the causal agent of Dieback

Christina Andronis
This spectral data is in support for the manuscript 'Gene validation and remodelling using proteogenomics of Phytophthora cinnamomi, the causal agent of Dieback'. This data was used to detect errors in the draft genome and curate previously undescribed genes in the Phytophthora cinnamomi genome.

Data from: Metabarcoding under Brine: Microbial ecology of five hyper-saline lakes at Rottnest Island (WA, Australia)

Mattia Saccò, Nicole E. White, Matthew Campbell, Sebastian Allard, William F. Humphreys, Paul Pringle, Farid Sepanta, Alex Laini & Morten E. Allentoft
Hypersaline ecosystems - aquatic environments where concentration of salt exceeds 35 g/L - host microbial communities which are highly specialized to cope with these extreme conditions. However, our knowledge on the taxonomic diversity and functional metabolisms characterising microbial communities in the water columns of hypersaline ecosystems is still limited, and this lack of knowledge may compromise the future preservation of these unique environments. DNA metabarcoding provides a reliable and affordable tool to investigate environmental dynamics...

Data for: Spontaneous choices for insect-pollinated flower shapes by wild non-eusocial halictid bees

Scarlett Howard, Kit Prendergast, Matthew Symonds, Mani Shrestha & Adrian Dyer
The majority of angiosperms require animal pollination for reproduction and insects are the dominant group of animal pollinators. Bees are considered one of the most important and abundant insect pollinators. Research into bee behaviour and foraging decisions has typically centred on managed eusocial bee species, Apis mellifera and Bombus terrestris. Non-eusocial bees are understudied with respect to foraging strategies and decision-making, such as flower preferences. Understanding whether there are fundamental foraging strategies and preferences which...

Data from: Population genetics of a broadcast-spawning coral across a tropical-temperate transition zone reveals regional differentiation and isolation of high-latitude reefs

Richard Evans, Luke Thomas, W. Jason Kennington, Nicole Ryan, Nerida Wilson, Zoe Richards, Ryan Lowe & Chenae Tuckett
Aim: Genetic connectivity is a key component of species resilience to climate change in terms of recovery capacity following disturbance and capacity to disperse to novel locations as the climate warms and isotherms shift poleward. We aimed to strengthen our understanding of resilience in this context by characterizing patterns of connectivity and genetic diversity in a broadcast spawning coral across a tropical-temperate transition zone. We hypothesize genetic differentiation between tropical and temperate populations and decreasing...

High functional diversity in deep-sea fish communities and increasing intra-specific trait variation with increasing latitude

Elisabeth Myers, Marti Anderson, Libby Liggins, Euan Harvey, Clive Roberts & David Eme
Variation in both inter- and intra-specific traits affect community dynamics, yet we know little regarding the relative importance of external environmental filters vs internal biotic interactions that shape the functional space of communities along broad-scale environmental gradients, such as latitude, elevation or depth. We examined changes in several key aspects of functional alpha-diversity for marine fishes along depth and latitude gradients by quantifying intra- and inter-specific richness, dispersion and regularity in functional trait space. We...

Data from: Drought then wildfire reveals a compound disturbance in a resprouting forest

Lewis Walden
The frequency and intensity of forest disturbances such as drought and fire are increasing globally, with an increased likelihood of multiple disturbance events occurring in short succession. Disturbances layered over one another may influence the likelihood or intensity of subsequent events (a linked disturbance) or impact response and recovery trajectories (a compound disturbance), with substantial implications for ecological spatiotemporal vulnerability. This study evaluates evidence for disturbance interactions of drought followed by wildfire in a resprouting...

Data from: eDNA metabarcoding of log hollow sediments and soils highlights the importance of substrate type, frequency of sampling and animal size, for vertebrate species detection

Ethan Ryan, Bill Bateman, Kristen Fernandes, Mieke Van Der Heyde & Paul Nevill
Fauna monitoring often relies on visual monitoring techniques such as camera trappings, which have biases leading to underestimates of vertebrate species diversity. Environmental DNA (eDNA) has emerged as a new source of biodiversity data that may improve biomonitoring; however, eDNA based assessments of species richness remain relatively untested in terrestrial environments. We investigated the suitability of fallen log hollow sediment as a source of vertebrate eDNA, across two sites in south-western Australia - one with...

Predicting hydrologic responses to climate changes in highly glacierized and mountainous region Upper Indus Basin

Muhammad Izhar Shah, Asif Khan, Tahir Ali Akbar, Quazi K Hassan, Asim Jahangir Khan & Ashraf Dewan
The Upper Indus Basin (UIB) is a major source of supplying water to different areas because of snow and glaciers melt and is also enduring the regional impacts of global climate change. The expected changes in temperature, precipitation, and snowmelt could be reasons for further escalation of the problem. Therefore, estimation of hydrological processes is critical for UIB. The objectives of this paper were to estimate the impacts of climate change on water resources and...
