The effects of resource subsidy duration in a detritus-based stream ecosystem: a mesocosm experimentTakuya Sato, Gaku Takimoto & Rui Ueda
1. Most resource subsidies are temporally variable, dynamically affecting the consumer populations, community structures, and ecosystem functions of recipient ecosystems. Temporally variable resource subsidies are characterized by the duration, magnitude, timing, and frequency of resource subsidy inputs. These different characteristics may have different mechanisms by which to affect recipient ecosystems. 2. Few studies have examined the duration of resource subsidy inputs on recipient ecosystems, although there exist previous studies focusing on magnitude, timing, and frequency....
The Indian subcontinent has an origin geologically different from Eurasia, but many terrestrial animal and plant species on it have congeneric or sister species in other parts of Asia, especially in the Southeast. This faunal and floral similarity between India and Southeast Asia is explained by either of the two biogeographic scenarios, ‘into-India’ or ‘out-of-India.’ Phylogenies based on complete mitochondrial genome and five nuclear genes were undertaken for ricefishes (Adrianichthyidae) to examine which of these...
Genomic population structure of sympatric sexual and asexual populations in a parasitic wasp, Meteorus pulchricornis (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), inferred from six hundred single-nucleotide polymorphism lociNakatada Wachi, Jin-Je Gau, Shunpei Fujie, Kenya Fukano & Kaoru Maeto
In spite of the two-fold reproductive advantage, asexual reproduction is not common in nature, likely due to the associated genetic deterioration or reduced genetic variation. To understand how genetic diversity is maintained in existing asexual populations, we investigated the genetic diversity and population structure of sympatric sexual and asexual populations of a parasitic wasp, Meteorus pulchricornis, using 614 genome-wide loci with single nucleotide polymorphisms. The genetic structures of the apomictic asexual populations were distinct, showing...
Dataset for the study of “Model Lipid Membranes Assembled from Natural Plant Thylakoids into 2D Microarray Patterns as a Platform to Assess the Organization and Photophysics of Light‐Harvesting Proteins”Sophie Meredith, Takuro Yoneda, Ashley Hancock, Simon Connell, Stephen Evans, Kenichi Morigaki & Peter Adams
This dataset shows the raw data, analysed data and documentation related to figures and tables from the study "Model Lipid Membranes Assembled from Natural Plant Thylakoids into 2D Microarray Patterns as a Platform to Assess the Organization and Photophysics of Light‐Harvesting Proteins". This includes: absorbance and fluorescence spectra; images from Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM); images from Atomic Force Microscopy measurements; epifluorescence measurements; analysis of fluorescence data (FLIM); other graphical analyses; tabulated numerical data.
Genital morphology reveals rapid diversification among species, and species-specific divergence in genital morphology may result in reproductive isolation and promote speciation. Natural selection against maladaptive hybridization may cause species-specific genital divergence. In this context, divergence in mating traits is expected to be greater between sympatric populations than between allopatric populations in a pair of species, known as reproductive character displacement (RCD). However, there are few examples of RCD in the genital morphology of closely related...
