Data from: Sexual selection, feather wear, and time constraints on the pre-basic molt explain the acquisition of the pre-alternate molt in European passerines

José J. Cuervo, Judith Morales, Juan J. Soler & Juan Moreno
Avian feathers need to be replaced periodically to fulfill their functions, with natural, social, and sexual selection presumably driving the evolution of molting strategies. In temperate birds, a common pattern is to molt feathers immediately after the breeding season, the pre-basic molt. However, some species undergo another molt in winter-spring, the pre-alternate molt. Using a sample of 188 European passerine species, Bayesian phylogenetic mixed models, and correlated evolution analyses, we tested whether the occurrence of...

Global potential invasion maps of traded birds under climate and land-cover change

Babak Naimi, César Capinha, Joana Ribeiro, Carsten Rahbek, Diederik Strubbe, Luís Reino & Miguel Araujo
Biological invasions rank among the top five threatening factors affecting biodiversity, but ongoing changes in climate and land cover might exacerbate risks. We used species distribution models for 609 traded bird species on the CITES list to examine the combined effects of projected climate change and land-cover change worldwide on the potential range expansion of bird species with commercial value as pets. The maps of potential invasion (may be inferred as the invasion risk) have...

A phylogenomic backbone for gastropod molluscs

Juan E. Uribe, Juan Uribe, Vanessa González, Iker Irisarri, Yasunori Kano, David Herbert, Ellen Strong & Myroslaw Harasewych
Gastropods have survived several mass extinctions during their evolutionary history resulting in extraordinary diversity in morphology, ecology, and developmental modes, which complicate the reconstruction of a robust phylogeny. Currently, gastropods are divided into six subclasses: Caenogastropoda, Heterobranchia, Neomphaliones, Neritimorpha, Patellogastropoda, and Vetigastropoda. Phylogenetic relationships among these taxa historically lack consensus, despite numerous efforts using morphological and molecular information. We generated sequence data for transcriptomes derived from twelve taxa belonging to clades with little or no...

Genetic diversity, differentiation and historical origin of the isolated population of rooksCorvus frugilegusin Iberia

Pablo Salinas, Francisco Morinha, Ivan Literak, Javier García, Borja Milá & Guillermo Blanco
Current bird populations in southern temperate latitudes often represent relicts of glacial refugia from which northern populations expanded as the climate became suitable following the last glacial maximum, 18 000 years before present. Alternatively, these southern populations could be the result of the fragmentation of large distributions and other processes not related to glaciations, like recent recolonization from northern populations and human impact in historical times. Here, we investigate the origin of a small, isolated...

Made-up mouths with preen oil reveal genetic and phenotypic conditions of starling nestlings

Juan José Soler, Ester Martínez-Renau, Manuel Azcárate-García, Cristina Ruiz-Castellano, José Martín & Manuel Martin-Vivaldi
Animal colouration are due to pigments, nanostructures, or to the cosmetic use of natural products, and plays a central role in social communication. The role of cosmetic colouration has traditionally been focussed on scenarios of sexual selection, but it could also be used in other contexts. Here, by using spotless starling (Sturnus unicolor) as a model system, we explore the possibility that nestlings cosmetically used their intensely yellow coloured uropygial secretion to signal their genetic...

Dataset: Local hydrological conditions influence tree diversity and composition across the Amazon basin

Sousa, Juliana Schietti, Luiz De Souza Coelho, José Ferreira Ramos, Diogenes De Andrade Lima Filho, Iêda Leão Amaral, Francisca Dionízia De Almeida Matos, Lorena M.

Salomão, Leandro Valle Ferreira, Dário Dantas Do Amaral, Nigel C.A. Pitman, Corine Vriesendorp, Tim R. Baker, Roel Brienen, Marcelo De Jesus Veiga Carim … & Flávia R.C. Costa
Tree diversity and composition in Amazonia are known to be strongly determined by the water supplied by precipitation. Nevertheless, within the same climatic regime, water availability is modulated by local topography and soil characteristics (hereafter referred to as local hydrological conditions), varying from saturated and poorly drained to well-drained and potentially dry areas. While these conditions may be expected to influence species distribution, the impacts of local hydrological conditions on tree diversity and composition remain...
