Data from: Predictions of single-nucleotide polymorphism differentiation between two populations in terms of mutual information

Roderick C Dewar, William B Sherwin, Emma Thomas, Clare E Holleley & Richard A Nichols
Mutual information (I) provides a robust measure of genetic differentiation for the purposes of estimating dispersal between populations. At present, however, there is little predictive theory for I. The growing importance in population biology of analyses of single-nucleotide and other single feature polymorphisms (SFPs) is a potent reason for developing an analytic theory for I with respect to a single locus. This study represents a first step towards such a theory. We present theoretical predictions...

Data from: Covariation in life-history traits: differential effects of diet on condition, hormones, behavior and reproduction in genetic finch morphs

Sarah R. Pryke, Lee B. Astheimer, Simon C. Griffith & William A. Buttemer
The relative contribution of genetic and environmental factors in determining variation in life-history traits is of central interest to evolutionary biologists, but the physiological mechanisms underlying these traits are still poorly understood. Here we experimentally demonstrate opposing effects of nutritional stress on immune function, endocrine physiology, parental care and reproduction between red and black head-color morphs of the Gouldian finch (Erythrura gouldiae). Although body condition of black morphs was largely unaffected by diet manipulation, red...

Data from: A highly social, land-dwelling fish defends territories in a constantly fluctuating environment

Terry J. Ord & Shi-Tong Tonia Hsieh
The Pacific leaping blenny (Alticus arnoldorum) is a marine fish that has made a highly successful transition to land. We report an extensive field study on the behavior of this remarkable fish and how it has coped with life on land. The fish occurs in great abundance above the waterline along the rocky coastlines of Micronesia. We found them to be terrestrial in all aspects of their adult daily life, but heavily constrained by large...

Data from: Factors leading to the evolution and maintenance of a male ornament in territorial species

Grace K. Charles & Terry J. Ord
Male ornamentation is assumed to have evolved primarily from selection by female mate choice. Yet this is only one possible reason for ornament evolution. Ornaments might also be useful in aggressive competition by improving opponent assessment between males, or they might function to enhance signal detection by making males more conspicuous in the environment. We tested both these ideas in territorial Anolis lizards in which female choice is either absent or secondary to males competing...

Data from: Receiver perception predicts species divergence in long-range communication

Terry J. Ord
The design of animal signals is believed to reflect the combined effect of the sensory system of receivers, the type of environment in which communication is being conducted, and the distance signals must travel in that environment. While empirical studies have examined how each of these factors might separately explain the structure of signals used by animals within species, comparative evidence supporting the predicted interaction of the sensory system, environment and transmission range in the...

Data from: The use of MSR (Minimum Sample Richness) for sample assemblage comparisons

Kenny J. Travouillon, Gilles Escarguel, Serge Legendre, Michael Archer & Suzanne J. Hand
Minimum Sample Richness (MSR) is defined as the smallest number of taxa that must be recorded in a sample to achieve a given level of inter-assemblage classification accuracy. MSR is calculated from known or estimated richness and taxonomic similarity. Here we test MSR for strengths and weaknesses by using 167 published mammalian local faunas from the Paleogene and early Neogene of the Query and Liane area (Massif Central, southwestern France), and then apply MSR to...

Supplementary Table 11: Regional zOTU table (data as relative abundances)

Charlie Melissa Phelps, Kathryn McMahon, Andrew Bissett, Rachele Bernasconi, Peter Steinberg, Torsten Thomas, Ezequiel Marzinelli & Megan Huggett
This research focuses on the spatial and temporal variations in the whole and core microbial communities on the ecologically important, temperate kelp E. radiata. Including the relationship with environmental drivers and the whole microbial community. Our research sampled microbial communities over a 17-month period, from six different sites in two distinct geographic regions (East and West coasts of Australia). This zOTU table is the relative abundances for the whole regional (combined WA and NSW) dataset.

Grayscale REV Analysis

Ankita Singh, Peyman Mostaghimi, Klaus Regenauer-lieb, Ryan Armstrong & Stuart Walsh
The data provided here is used to investigate the representative elementary volume (REV) size directly from grayscale micro-CT images of porous media of sandstone and carbonate. Three datasets are provided per sample: 16-bit grayscale image, 8-bit grayscale image, and segmented image. The re-quantization of a 16-bit grayscale image to 8-bit is carried out using ImageJ. The choice of intensities used carrying out this operation is provided in the supplementary information of the related publication. This...

2000 Male Out Survey Data

Susan Kippax
A large sample of homosexually active men was recruited through the mail-out, self complete questionnaire procedure. The participants represent a broad cross-section of the homosexually active population of Australia, both gay community attached and non gay community attached men. The resultant data based on this diverse sample of homosexually active men drawn from every corner of Australia complement those findings from periodic surveys conducted in principal gay communities. Data was collected on demographic variables, sexual...
