Seed consumption by small fish follows peak seed availability in a tropical dry forest river

Elisabet Wehncke, Nestor Mariano, Vanessa Montes De Oca & Humberto Mejía-Mojica
Seed consumption and dispersal by fish has been more extensively described in natural Neotropical large river systems of Amazonia, where ichthyochory follows a seasonal gradient associated with a floodpulse that creates long-lasting seasonally flood zones. It has been shown that it is relevant in maintaining the plant community structure of wetlands, but its effects on plant communities in seasonal dry forests are largely unknown. The Amacuzac hydrological system, which runs through one of the most...

Bat acoustic libraries are important tools that assemble echolocation calls to allow the comparison and discrimination to confirm species identifications. The Sonozotz project represents the first nation-wide library of bat echolocation calls for a megadiverse country. It was assembled following a standardized recording protocol that aimed to cover different recording habitats, recording techniques, and call variation inherent to individuals. The Sonozotz project included 69 species of echolocating bats, a high species richness that represents 50%...

Data from: The relevance of gene flow with wild relatives in understanding the domestication process

Alejandra Moreno-Letelier, Jonas A Aguirre-Liguori, Daniel Piñero, Alejandra Vázquez-Lobo & Luis E Eguiarte
The widespread use of genomic tools has allowed for a deeper understanding of the genetics and the evolutionary dynamics of domestication. Recent studies have suggested that multiple domestications and introgression are more common than previously thought. However, the ability to correctly infer the domestication process depends on having an adequate representation of wild relatives. Cultivated maize (Zea mays spp. mays) is one of the most important crops in the world, with a long and a...
