Data from: Population size and time since island isolation determine genetic diversity loss in insular frog populations

Supen Wang, Wei Zhu, Xu Gao, Xianping Li, Yan Shaofei, Xuan Liu, Ji Yang, Zengxiang Gao, Yiming Li & Shaofei Yan
Understanding the factors that contribute to loss of genetic diversity in fragmented populations is crucial for conservation measurements. Land-bridge archipelagoes offer ideal model systems for identifying the long-term effects of these factors on genetic variations in wild populations. In this study, we used 9 microsatellite markers to quantify genetic diversity and differentiation of 810 pond frogs (Pelophylax nigromaculataus) from 24 islands of the Zhoushan Archipelago and 3 sites on nearby mainland China and estimated the...

Data from: Comparative phylogeography in marginal seas of the northwestern Pacific

Gang Ni, Qi Li, Lingfeng Kong & Hong Yu
The maturation of marine phylogeography depends on integration of comparative information across different regions globally. The northwestern Pacific, characterized by unique tectonic setting, however, is still underrepresented. This study seeks to highlight its phylogeographical history based on available population data, focusing on three seas: the East China Sea (ECS), the South China Sea (SCS), and the Sea of Japan (SOJ). We first conducted a literature survey to evaluate current research efforts, and then re-analysed the...

Data from: Sequencing-based gene network analysis provides a core set of gene resource for understanding thermal adaptation in Zhikong scallop Chlamys farreri

Marine organisms are commonly exposed to variable environmental conditions and many of them are under threat from increased sea temperatures caused by global climate change. Generating transcriptomic resources under different stress conditions are crucial for understanding molecular mechanisms underlying thermal adaptation. In this study, we conducted transcriptome-wide gene expression profiling of the scallop Chlamys farreri challenged by acute and chronic heat stress. Of the 13,953 unique tags, more than 850 were significantly differentially expressed at...
