Home range estimation is routine practice in ecological research. While advances in animal tracking technology have increased our capacity to collect data to support home range analysis, these same advances have also resulted in increasingly autocorrelated data. Consequently, the question of which home range estimator to use on modern, highly autocorrelated tracking data remains open. This question is particularly relevant given that most estimators assume independently sampled data. Here, we provide a comprehensive evaluation of...

Data from: The genetic variance but not the genetic covariance of life-history traits changes towards the north in a time-constrained insect

Szymon Sniegula, Maria J. Golab, Szymon M. Drobniak & Frank Johansson
Seasonal time constraints are usually stronger at higher than lower latitudes and can exert strong selection on life history traits and the correlations among these traits. To predict the response of life history traits to environmental change along a latitudinal gradient, information must be obtained about genetic variance in traits and also genetic correlation between traits, i.e., the genetic variance-covariance matrix, G. Here, we estimated G for key life history traits in an obligate univoltine...

Data from: Sexual signals reveal males’ oxidative stress defenses: testing the hypothesis in an invertebrate

Norma Martínez-Lendech, Maria J. Golab, Marcela Osorio-Beristain & Jorge Contreras-Garduño
1.The hypothesis that sexual traits reveal the oxidative stress resistance of their bearers has been widely tested in vertebrates but remains unexplored in invertebrates. Here, Hetaerina americana was used to test whether oxidative stress defenses are advertised by male wing spot size and color (a male sexual trait). To this end we asked (1) whether oxidative stress reduced survival, (2) whether wing spot size revealed males’ antioxidant defenses, and (3) how wing spot size and...
