The opportunity for selection: an important but slippery concept in ecology and evolution.

Thomas Reed, Thomas Reed, Marcel E. Visser & Robin Waples
1. The concept of the opportunity for selection (I), measured as the variance in relative fitness, is over 60 years old, yet remains poorly understood by, or even unknown to, many ecologists and evolutionary biologists. This essay aims to clarify key conceptual and practical issues concerning use and estimation of I, which represents a theoretical upper limit on the rate of evolutionary adaptation. 2. The component of I caused by linear selection on a single...

Data from: A longitudinal analysis of the growth rate and mass of tail feathers in a great tit population: ontogeny, genetic effects and relationship between traits

Ivan De La Hera, Michael S. Reichert, Gabrielle L. Davidson & John L. Quinn
Feathers have a diversity of functions in birds and are costly to produce, so their growth rate and mass can be reliable indicators of nutritional condition at the time of production. Despite the potential for feather metrics to advance our understanding of foraging, they are underused in avian ecology. One reason for this is the difficulty of interpreting whether individual variation is driven by ontogenetic, genetic, or environmental effects, which is exacerbated by the fact...

Data from: The skeletal taphonomy of anurans from the Eocene Geiseltal Konservat-Lagerstätte, Germany: insights into the controls on fossil anuran preservation

Daniel Falk, Oliver Wings & Maria McNamara
The Geiseltal biota is a lacustrine-hosted Konservat-Lagerstätte from the Eocene of central Germany. Despite its rich fauna and flora that is represented by at least 50,000 fossil vertebrates, insects and other invertebrates, plants and trace fossils, the taphonomy of the biota is still poorly understood. In particular, the anurans have not been the focus of taphonomic investigation. Here, we analysed the skeletal taphonomy of 168 anurans from Geiseltal and scored each specimen for orientation, completeness...

A general swimming response in exhausted obligate swimming fish

Gil Iosilevskii, Jacinta Kong, Carl Meyer, Yuuki Watanabe, Yannis Papastamatiou, Mark Royer, Itsumi Nakamura, Katsufumi Sato, Thomas Doyle, Luke Harman, Jonathan Houghton, Adam Barnett, Jayson Semmens, Niall Ó Maoléidigh, Alan Drumm, Ross O'Neill, Daniel Coffey & Nicholas Payne
Marine organisms normally swim at elevated speeds relative to cruising speeds only during strenuous activity, such as predation or escape. We measured swimming speeds of 29 ram ventilating sharks from 10 species and of three Atlantic bluefin tunas immediately after exhaustive exercise (fighting a capture by hook-and-line), and unexpectedly found all individuals exhibited a uniform mechanical response, with swimming speed initially 2 times higher than the cruising speeds reached approximately 6 hours later. We hypothesised...

Search Strategy- Pregnancy and birth complications and long-term adverse maternal mental health outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis protocol

Elizabeth Bodunde, Daire Buckley, Eimear O'Neill, Gillian M. Maher, Karen Matvienko-Sikar, Karen O'Connor, Fergus P. McCarthy & Ali Khashan
The rate of maternal mortality has declined significantly across countries in comparison to the burden of morbidity, which continues to remain a significant public health challenge. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 15% of all pregnant women will experience potentially fatal complications that would necessitate medical attention. The five most direct obstetric complications (preeclampsia, eclampsia, postpartum hemorrhage, puerperal infection, and abortion) accounted for 27 million morbidity episodes in 2015. Existing studies have established an...

Data associated to: A bioenergetics approach to understanding sex differences in the foraging behaviour of a sexually monomorphic species

Ashley Bennison
Many animals show sexually divergent foraging behaviours reflecting different physiological constraints or energetic needs. We used a bioenergetics approach to examine sex differences in foraging behaviour of the sexually monomorphic northern gannet. We used the relationship between dynamic body acceleration and energy expenditure to investigate energetic cost of prey capture attempts (plunge dives). Fourteen gannets were tracked using GPS, TDR, and accelerometers. All plunge dives in a foraging trip represented <4% of total energy expenditure,...
