Evolutionary footprints of a cold relic in a rapidly warming world

Marcus Koch & Eva Wolf
With accelerating global warming, understanding the evolutionary dynamics of plant adaptation to environmental change is increasingly urgent. Here we reveal the enigmatic history of the genus Cochlearia (Brassicaceae), a Pleistocene relic that originated from a drought-adapted Mediterranean sister genus during the Miocene. Cochlearia rapidly diversified and adapted to circum-Arctic regions and other cold-characterized habitat types during the Pleistocene. This sudden change in ecological preferences was accompanied by a highly complex, reticulate polyploid evolution, which was...

Data from: Middle Bronze Age land use practices in the north-western Alpine foreland – A multi-proxy study of colluvial deposits, archaeological features and peat bogs

This paper aims to reconstruct Middle Bronze Age (MBA) land use practices in the north-western Alpine foreland (SW Germany, Hegau). We used a multi-proxy approach including the biogeochemical proxies from colluvial deposits in the surrounding of the well-documented settlement site of Anselfingen and offsite pollen data from two peat bogs. This approach allowed in-depth insights into the MBA subsistence economy and shows that the MBA in the north-western Alpine foreland was a period of establishing...

Chironomid assemblages and inferred summer temperature from the Last Glacial Period (ca. 98–46 ka), from Füramoos, Southern Germany

Alexander Bolland, Oliver Kern, Frederik Allstädt, Dorothy Peteet3, Andreas Koutsodendris, Jörg Pross & Oliver Heiri
The data herein presents a new chironomid record and associated chironomid-based temperature reconstruction covering the time interval ca. 98–46 ka from the palaeolake Füramoos, Southern Germany. These data also include non-chironomid invertebrate remains, including Ceratopogonidae, Daphnia and Ephemeroptera as well as Characean oospores.

Chironomid assemblages and inferred summer temperature, late Rissian, Eemian and earliest Würmian, S Germany

Alex Bolland, Oliver Kern, Andreas Koutsodendris, Jörg Pross & Oliver Heiri
The data herein presents a new chironomid record and associated chironomid-based temperature reconstruction covering the mid Eemian to the end of the first Würmian stadial (ca. 125–105 ka), augmented by results for the late Rissian glaciation and the early Brörup interstadial from the Füramoos palaeolake, southern Germany. There is an unconformity in the sediment core analysed between the late Rissian sediments and the mid Eemian sediments. These data also include non-chironomid invertebrate remains, including Ceratopogonidae,...

Knowledge and attitude of infection prevention and control practices among health care workers caring for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19

Eman H. Elsebaie, Amany A. Salem, Amal S. Sedrak, Ahmed Ayad, Bassante A. El Razik, Sahar A. Ahmed & Noha M Abu Bakr Elsaid
Background: COVID-19 pandemic is growing rapidly, accounting for an increasing proportion of cases worldwide. Infection in healthcare facilities enhances very likely the local outbreaks, impacting mainly the elderly and vulnerable populations. All activities used to minimize the risk of infection spread are referred to as infection control measures. Therefore, this study aimed to; determine the proportion of SARS-COV2 infection among heath care workers (HCWs) caring for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, assess their knowledge...

Toba Caldera geochronological and modelling dataset

Adonara Mucek, Martin Danisik, Shanaka De Silva, Daniel Miggins, Axel Schmitt, Indyo Pratomo, Anthony Koppers & Jack Gillespie
Bayesian statistical analysis and inverse thermal history modeling of feldspar 40Ar/39Ar and zircon (U-Th)/He ages reveal that post-caldera dome eruptions at Toba Caldera, Sumatra occurred up to ca. 13.6 kyr later than indicated by 40Ar/39Ar feldspar ages. This discordance implies cold storage of feldspar antecrysts prior to eruption for a maximum duration of ca. 5 and 13 kyr at between 280°C and 500°C. These findings connote that the solidified carapace of remnant magma after the...
