Data from: Plantings accelerate restoration of tropical forest but assembly mechanisms appear insensitive to initial composition

Lanping Li, Marc W. Cadotte, Cristina Martínez-Garza, Marinés De La Peña-Domene & Guozhen Du
1. Phylogenetic and trait-based approaches to community ecology are increasingly being used to test for nonrandom community assembly and are now being applied to assessments of habitat restoration. A critical question for the restoration of tropical forests is how plantings influence the recruitment of new species, and specifically the phylogenetic and functional diversity of restored habitats. 2. We examined 8 years (2006-2014) of tropical forest recruitment in two restoration planting compositions (12 animal-dispersed and 12...

Data from: Multiple scaling behavior and nonlinear traits in music scores

Alfredo González-Espinoza, Hernan Larralde, Gustavo Martinez-Mekler & Markus Mueller
We present a statistical analysis of music scores from different composers using detrended fluctuation analysis. We find different fluctuation profiles that correspond to distinct auto-correlation structures of the musical pieces. Further, we reveal evidence for the presence of nonlinear auto-correlations by estimating the detrended fluctuation analysis of the magnitude series, a result validated by a corresponding study of appropriate surrogate data. The amount and the character of nonlinear correlations vary from one composer to another....

Data from: Predator discrimination in the hermit crab Calcinus californiensis: tight for shell breakers, loose for shell peelers

Guillermina Alcaraz & Elsah Arce
Prey exposed to predators with different hunting and feeding modes are under different selective pressures, therefore it is expected that they should exhibit plastic and adaptive antipredator responses according to current risks. The hermit crab Calcinus californiensis faces two contrasting predators, the shell peeler Arenaeus mexicanus that hunts by active searching and the shell breaker Eriphia squamata that hunts by ambush. In order to discover whether C. californiensis displays plastic responses depending on the type...

Data from: Connecting genomic patterns of local adaptation and niche suitability in teosintes

Jonas Aguirre-Liguori, Maud Tenaillon, Alejandra Vázquez-Lobo, Brandon Gaut, Juan Jaramillo-Correa, Salvador Montes-Hernandez, Valeria Souza, L. E. Eguiarte, J. P. Jaramillo-Correa & M. I. Tenaillon
The central-abundance hypothesis predicts that local adaptation is a function of the distance to the center of a species’ geographic range. To test this hypothesis, we gathered genomic diversity data from 49 populations, 646 individuals and 33,464 SNPs of two wild relatives of maize, the teosintes Zea mays ssp. parviglumis and Zea. mays. ssp. mexicana. We examined the association between the distance to their climatic and geographic centroids and the enrichment of SNPs bearing signals...
