Benzene is a ubiquitous environmental pollutant abundant in household products, petrochemicals, and cigarette smoke. Benzene is a well-known carcinogen in humans and experimental animals; however, little is known about the cardiovascular toxicity of benzene. Recent population-based studies indicate that benzene exposure is associated with an increased risk for heart failure. Nonetheless, it is unclear whether benzene exposure is sufficient to induce and/or exacerbate heart failure. We examined the effects of benzene (50 ppm, 6 h/day,...

Responses of terrestrial polar arthropods to high and increasing temperatures

Simon Bahrndorff, Jannik Lauritzen, Mathias Sørensen, Natasja Noer & Torsten Kristensen
Terrestrial arthropods in the Arctic and Antarctic are exposed to extreme and variable temperatures, and climate change is predicted to be especially pronounced in these regions. Available studies on insect ecophysiology typically focus on the ability of species to tolerate the extreme low temperatures that can occur in these regions, whereas studies investigating species’ plasticity and the importance of evolutionary adaptation to periodically high and increasing temperatures are limited. Here, we provide an overview of...

Data on: contrasting manual and automated assessment of larval body size and thermal stress responses in black soldier flies and houseflies

Stine Frey Laursen, Laura Skrubbeltrang Hansen, Simon Bahrndorff, Hanne Marie Nielsen, Natasja Krog Noer, David Renault, Goutam Sahana, Jesper Givskov Sørensen & Torsten Nygaard Kristensen
The data files described below contains information on larval body size traits and stress tolerance traits obtained using contrasting methods (manual and automated). The species investigated are black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens) and houseflies (Musca domestica). Larval body size is estimated using manual weighing and imaging analysis software (Noldus EthoVision XT 15.0.1418, Wageningen, the Netherlands). Stress tolerance traits are obtained using manual observations of traditional thermal tolerance assays and by using software for video analysis...

Strong isolation by distance among local populations of an endangered butterfly species (Euphydryas aurinia)

Cino Pertoldi
The marsh fritillary (Euphydryas aurinia) is a critically endangered butterfly species in Denmark known to be particularly vulnerable to habitat fragmentation due to its poor dispersal capacity. We identified and genotyped 318 novel SNP loci across 273 individuals obtained from 10 small and fragmented populations in Denmark using a genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) approach to investigate its population genetic structure. Our results showed clear genetic substructuring and highly significant population differentiation based on genetic divergence (FST) among...
