Tire wear particles: An emerging threat to soil health

Jing Ding, Min Lv, Dong Zhu, Eva F. Leifheit, Qing-Lin Chen, Yun-Qing Wang, Ling-Xin Chen, Matthias C. Rillig & Yong-Guan Zhu
Tire wear particles (TWP) have caused widespread contamination in the environment. However, their behavior and potential impacts in soil remain unclear since studies have so far been mainly conducted in aquatic ecosystems. It is possible that soil ecosystems are already under pressure from pollution by TWP. We here firstly synthesize knowledge about the composition, distribution, and behavior of TWP in soils. By comparing with effects of microplastics (MP) in soil, we further outline several potential...

PanDDA-analyzed data of a crystallographic fragment screening of F2X-Universal Library vs. AR

Tatjana Barthel, Jan Wollenhaupt, Gustavo M. A. Lima, Markus C. Wahl & Manfred S. Weiss
A crystallographic fragment screening (CFS) has been performed on a spliceosomal yeast protein-protein complex of Aar2 and the RNaseH-like domain of Prp8 (AR). The F2X-Universal Library is a fragment library representing the commercially available chemical space of fragments. 917 fragments have been individually screened via crystal soaking. The datasets that could be successfully auto-processed and auto-refined had been subjected to a Pan-Dataset Density Analysis (PanDDA) (Pearce et al., 2017). This analysis allows to find low...

Survival of antimicrobial peptide resistant Staphylococcus aureus in mealworm beetles (Tenebrio molitor) with manipulated AMPexpression

Jens Rolff & Baydaa El Shazely
Antimicrobial peptides (AMP) are essential immune effectors of multicellular organisms. Bacteria can evolve resistance to AMPs. Surprisingly, when used to challenge the insect Tenebrio molitor, Staphylococcus aureus resistant to an abundant beetle AMP (tenecin 1) and also pleiotropically to phagocytosis did not increase host mortality or bacterial load compared to infections with wild-type S. aureus. A possible explanation is that antimicrobial resistance is costly due to collaterally increased sensitivity of AMP-resistant strains to other immune...

Data from: Can fractal dimensions objectivize gastropod shell morphometrics? A case study from Lake Lugu (SW China)

Robert Wiese, Kyle Harrington, Kai Hartmann, Manja Hethke, Thomas Von Rintelen, Hucai Zhang, Le-Jia Zhang & Frank Riedel
Morphometrics are fundamental for statistical analyses of fossils, particularly because soft parts or DNA are rarely preserved and thus hard parts such as shells are commonly the only source of information. Geometric morphometrics i.e. landmark analysis has been successfully established but exhibits a couple of shortcomings. On the one hand landmarking is rather subjective and on the other hand the application at the level of micro-sculpture is difficult. With the aid of high-resolution 3D scanning...

Livestock management promotes bush encroachment in savanna systems by altering plant-herbivore feedback

Franziska Koch, Britta Tietjen, Katja Tielbörger & Korinna Allhoff
This repository contains all code to reproduce the analysis in Koch et al. 2022 "Livestock management promotes bush encroachment in savanna systems by altering plant-herbivore feedback". We use a set of coupled differential equations to describe competition between shrubs and grasses, as well as plant biomass consumption via grazing and browsing. Grazers were assumed to receive a certain level of care from farmers, so that grazer densities emerge dynamically from the combined effect of vegetation...

Voter Dynamics on Clustered Networks

Jan-Hendrik Niemann
The dynamical behavior of social systems can be described by agent-based models. One famous and important model for the description of voting behavior is the so-called (extended) voter model where agents decide between various options based on different rules. A key factor is the interaction network, that is what information the agents obtain and how they interact with each other. This data set provides simulation data to analyze the influence of the interaction network. A...

Data from: Savanna resilience to droughts increases with proportion of browsing wild herbivores and plant functional diversity

Katja Irob
1. Maintaining the resilience and functionality of savannas is key to sustaining the ecosystem services they provide. This maintenance is largely dependent on the resilience of savannas to stressors, such as prolonged droughts. The resilience to drought is largely determined by the interaction of herbivores and the functional composition of vegetation. So far, our understanding and ability to predict the response of savannas to drought under different types of rangeland use and as a function...

Data from: Neglected very long-chain hydrocarbons and the incorporation of body surface area metrics reveal novel perspectives for cuticular profile analysis in insects

Jan Buellesbach, Marek Golian, Tanja Bien, Sebastian Schmelzle, Margy Alejandra Esparza-Mora, Dino McMahon & Klaus Dreisewerd
Most of our knowledge on insect cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) stems from analytical techniques based on gas-chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). However, this method has its limits under standard conditions, particularly in detecting compounds beyond a chain length of around C40. Here, we compare the CHC chain length range detectable by GC-MS with the range assessed by silver-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (Ag-LDI-MS), a novel and rarely applied technique on insect CHCs, in seven species...

Single-cell phenotypic characteristics of tolerance under recurring antibiotic exposure in Escherichia coli

Silvia Kollerová, Lionel Jouvet, Julia Smelková, Sara Zunk-Parras, Alexandro Rodriguez-Rojas & Ulrich Steiner
Non-heritable drug resistance, such as tolerance and persistence towards antibiotics, is little characterized compared to genetic resistance. Tolerance and persistence allow cells to survive application of antibiotics that are bactericidal to non-tolerant cells. Non-heritable drug resistance challenges antibiotic treatment, particularly of recurrent infections, and have implications towards heritable resistance evolution. Tolerant cells have commonly been characterized as growth arrested cells prior and during antibiotic application that quickly resume growth post-application. Here, we explore characteristic of...

Urban biotic homogenization: approaches and knowledge gaps

Sophie Lokatis & Jonathan Jeschke
Urbanization is restructuring ecosystems at an unprecedented pace, with complex and profound consequences for life on earth. One of the hypothesized trajectories of urban ecosystems and species communities is biotic homogenization, possibly leading to very similar species assemblages in cities across the globe. Urbanization can, however, also have the opposite effect: biotic diversification, with cities – at least on the local scale – becoming biologically more diverse, mainly as a consequence of high species introduction...

Data from: Testing the success of palaeontological methods in the delimitation of clam shrimp (Crustacea, Branchiopoda) on extant species

Manja Hethke, Kai Hartmann, Matthias Alberti, Theresa Kutzner & Martin Schwentner
Fossil spinicaudatan taxonomy heavily relies on carapace features (size, shape, ornamentation), and palaeontologists have greatly refined methods to study and describe carapace variability. Whether carapace features alone are sufficient for distinguishing between species of a single genus has remained untested. In our study, we tested common palaeontological methods on 481 individuals of the extant Australian genus Ozestheria that have been previously assigned to ten species based on genetic analysis. All species are morphologically distinct based...
