Male song stability shows cross-year repeatability but does not affect reproductive success in a wild passerine bird

Alexander Hutfluss, Eira Bermúdez-Cuamatzin, Alexia Mouchet, Mark Briffa, Hans Slabbekoorn & Niels Dingemanse
Predictable behaviour (or “behavioural stability”) might be favoured in certain ecological contexts, e.g. when representing a quality signal. Costs associated with producing stable phenotypes imply selection should favour plasticity in stability when beneficial. Repeatable among-individual differences in degree of stability are simultaneously expected if individuals differ in ability to pay these costs, or in how they resolve cost-benefit trade-offs. Bird song represents a prime example, where stability may be costly yet beneficial when stable singing...

Annual egg productivity predicts female-biased mortality in avian species

Diego Rubolini, Andrea Romano, Andras Liker, Gaia Bazzi, Roberto Ambrosini & Anders Møller
Among avian species, the differential cost entailed by either sex in competition for mates have been regarded as the main evolutionary influence on sex differences in mortality rates. However, empirical evidence suggests that sex-biased adult mortality is mainly related to differential energy investment in gamete production, a greater annual mass devoted to egg production leading to higher female mortality. We explicitly tested the generality of this pattern in a comparative framework. Annual egg production can...

Level 1A BepiColombo/PHEBUS EUV observations data of the disk-integrated solar reflected light from the Mercury surface

On October 9th and 10th 2021, nine days after the first flyby of Mercury by the ESA-JAXA mission BepiColombo, the EUV spectrograph of Probing the Hermean Exosphere by UV Spectroscopy (PHEBUS) instrument aboard BepiColombo observed the disk-integrated solar reflected light from the surface of Mercury between 90 and 160 nm at a distance of 4.5 million kilometers. These observations are used to derive the EUV reflectance of the surface of Mercury in this wavelength range...

Antibacterial and anatomical defences in an oil contaminated, vulnerable seaduck

Karsten Laursen, Anders Pape Møller, Jorge Izaguirre & Alfonso Marzal
Oil-spills have killed thousands of birds during the last 100 years, but non-lethal effects of oil-spills on birds remain poorly studied. We measured phenotype characters in 279 eiders Somateria mollissima of which 13.6% were oiled. We tested the hypotheses that (1) the morphology of eiders does not change due to oil contamination; (2) the anatomy of organs reflects the physiological reaction to contamination e.g. increase in metabolic demand, increase in food intake and counteracting toxic...

Dataset associated with 'The effect of mutation on an aggregation-prone protein: An in vivo, in vitro and in silico analysis'

N. Gutherz, R. Van der Kant, H. Smit, M. Martinez, Yong Xu, Chi Trinh, Bogdan I. Iorga, F. Rousseau, J. Schymkowitz, David Brockwell & Sheena Radford
Aggregation of initially stably structured proteins is involved in more than 20 human amyloid diseases. Despite intense research, however, how this class of proteins assembles into amyloid fibrils remains poorly understood. We address this question using β2-microglobulin (β2m) as a model system, focusing on D76N-β2m that is involved in hereditary amyloidosis. Here, we identify the residues key to protect β2m from aggregation and we show that residue 76 has a unique ability to drive β2m...

Study of the genetic and phenotypic variation among wild and cultivated clary sages provides interesting avenues for breeding programs of a perfume, medicinal and aromatic plant

Stephanie Drevensek, Camille Chalvin, Michel Dron, Christel Cholet, Francoise Gilard, Edita M Solic, Abdelhafid Bendahmane, Adnane Boualem & Amandine Cornille
A road-map of the genetic and phenotypic diversities in both crops and their wild-related species can help identifying valuable genetic resources for further crop breeding. The clary sage (Salvia sclarea L.), a perfume, medicinal and aromatic plant, is used for sclareol production and ornamental purposes. Despite its wide use in the field of cosmetics, the phenotypic and genetic diversity of wild and cultivated clary sage remains to be explored. We characterized the genetic and phenotypic...

Data from: Constraints on the evolution of toxin-resistant Na,K-ATPases have limited dependence on sequence divergence

Shabnam Mohammadi, Santiago Herrera-Álvarez, Lu Yang, María Del Pilar Rodríguez-Ordoñez, Karen Zhang, Jay F. Storz, Susanne Dobler, Andrew J. Crawford & Peter Andolfatto
A growing body of theoretical and experimental evidence suggests that intramolecular epistasis is a major determinant of rates and patterns of protein evolution and imposes a substantial constraint on the evolution of novel protein functions. Here, we examine the role of intramolecular epistasis in the recurrent evolution of resistance to cardiotonic steroids (CTS) across tetrapods, which occurs via specific amino acid substitutions to the α-subunit family of Na,K-ATPases (ATP1A). After identifying a series of recurrent...

Multisite imaging of neural activity using a genetically encoded calcium sensor in the honey bee

Julie Carcaud
Understanding of the neural bases for complex behaviors in Hymenoptera insect species has been limited by a lack of tools that allow measuring neuronal activity simultaneously in different brain regions. Here, we developed the first pan-neuronal genetic driver in a Hymenopteran model organism, the honey bee, and expressed the calcium indicator GCaMP6f under the control of the honey bee synapsin promoter. We show that GCaMP6f is widely expressed in the honey bee brain, allowing it...

Kannenberg, Flurin Babst, Dennis Baldocchi, Soumaya Belmecheri, Nicolas Delpierre, Rossella Guerrieri, Justin Maxwell, Shawn McKenzie, Chritoforos Pappas, Adrian Rocha, Paul Szejner, Masahito Ueyama, Danielle Ulrich, Caroline Vincke, Jingshu Wei, David Woodruff, Altaf Arain, Rick Meinzer, David J. P. Moore, Steven L. Voelker, William R. L. Anderegg & Frederick C. Meinzer
Uncertainties surrounding tree carbon allocation to growth are a major limitation to projections of forest carbon sequestration and response to climate change. The prevalence and extent to which carbon assimilation (source) or cambial activity (sink) mediate wood production are fundamentally important and remain elusive. We quantified source-sink relations across biomes by combining eddy-covariance gross primary production with extensive on-site and regional tree ring observations. We found widespread temporal decoupling between carbon assimilation and tree growth,...

Missing data in sea turtle population monitoring: a Bayesian statistical framework accounting for incomplete sampling

Lucy Omeyer, Trevelyan McKinley, Nathalie Bréheret, Gaëlle Bal, George Petchell Balchin, Abdon Bitsindou, Eva Chauvet, Tim Collins, Bryan Curran, Angela Formia, Alexandre Girard, Marc Girondot, Brendan Godley, Jean-Gabriel Mavoungou, Laurène Poli, Dominic Tilley, Hilde VanLeeuwe & Kristian Metcalfe
Monitoring how populations respond to sustained conservation measures is essential to detect changes in their population status and determine the effectiveness of any interventions. In the case of sea turtles, their populations are difficult to assess because of their complicated life histories. Ground-derived clutch counts are most often used as an index of population size for sea turtles; however, data are often incomplete with varying sampling intensity within and among sites and seasons. To address...

Alien insect dispersal mediated by the global movement of commodities

Gyda Fenn-Moltu, Gyda Fenn-Moltu, Sébastien Ollier, Barney Caton, Andrew Liebhold, Helen Nahrung, Deepa Pureswaran, Rebecca Turner, Takehiko Yamanaka & Cleo Bertelsmeier
Globalization and economic growth are recognized as key drivers of biological invasions. Alien species have become a feature of almost every biological community worldwide, and rates of new introductions continue to rise as the movement of people and goods accelerates. Insects are among the most numerous and problematic alien organisms, and are mainly introduced unintentionally with imported cargo or arriving passengers. However, the processes occurring prior to insect introductions remain poorly understood. We used a...
