Data from: Inversion Invasions: when the genetic basis of local adaptation is concentrated within inversions in the face of gene flow

Sara Schaal, Benjamin Haller & Katie Lotterhos
Across many species where inversions have been implicated in local adaptation, genomes often evolve to contain multiple, large inversions that arise early in divergence. Why this occurs has yet to be resolved. To address this gap, we built forward-time simulations in which inversions have flexible characteristics and can invade a metapopulation undergoing spatially divergent selection for a highly polygenic trait. In our simulations, inversions typically arose early in divergence, captured standing genetic variation upon mutation,...

Evolutionary divergence in phenotypic plasticity shapes brain size variation between coexisting sunfish ecotypes

Caleb Axelrod, Beren Robinson & Frédéric Laberge
Mechanisms that generate brain size variation and the consequences of such variation on ecological performance are poorly understood in most natural animal populations. We use a reciprocal-transplant common garden experiment and foraging performance trials to test for brain size plasticity and the functional consequences of brain size variation in Pumpkinseed sunfish (Lepomis gibbosus) ecotypes that have diverged between nearshore littoral and offshore pelagic lake habitats. Different age-classes of wild-caught juveniles from both habitats were exposed...

Data from: Seeing the Forest for the trees: Assessing genetic offset predictions from Gradient Forest

Áki Jarl Láruson, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Stephen Keller, Benjamin Haller & Katie Lotterhos
Gradient Forest (GF) is a machine learning algorithm designed to analyze spatial patterns of biodiversity as a function of environmental gradients. An offset measure between the GF predicted environmental association of adapted alleles and a new environment (GF Offset), is increasingly being used to predict the loss of environmentally adapted alleles under rapid environmental change, but remains mostly untested for this purpose. Here we explore the robustness of GF Offset to assumption violations, and its...

Local male breeding density affects extra-pair paternity in a south temperate population of grass wrens Cistothorus platensis

Ramiro Arrieta, Leonardo Campagna, Bettina Mahler, Irby Lovette & Paulo Llambias
Demographic factors can affect the frequency of extra-pair paternity (EPP) in birds, as the distribution and availability of potential mates in both space and time influence the rate of encounters between females and males. Over three breeding seasons, we intensively studied the breeding system of a south temperate population of grass wrens Cistothorus platensis by genotyping 73 broods (319 nestlings) and estimating EPP rates for those broods. Using five different radii (80, 160, 240, 320,...

Staging to join non-kin groups in a classical cooperative breeder, the Florida scrub-jay

Young Ha Suh, Reed Bowman & John Fitzpatrick
1. Why unrelated members form groups in animal societies remains a pertinent topic in evolutionary biology because benefits for group members often are not obvious. We studied subordinates that disperse to join unrelated social groups in the Florida scrub-jay Aphelocoma coerulescens, a cooperative breeding species mainly composed of kin-based groups. 2. We evaluated potential adaptive benefits of dispersing to become an unrelated helper (staging) versus remaining home and dispersing only to pair and breed (direct...

Data from: Genetic and spatial variation in vegetative and floral traits across a hybrid zone

Diane Campbell, Robert Raguso, Maya Midzik, Mascha Bischoff & Geoffrey Broadhead
Premise: Genetic variation influences potential for evolution to rescue populations from impacts of environmental change. Most studies of genetic variation in fitness-related traits focus on either vegetative or floral traits, with few on floral scent. How vegetative and floral traits compare in potential for adaptive evolution is poorly understood. Results: Vegetative traits SLA and WUE varied greatly among planting sites, while showing weak or no genetic variation among source populations. SLA and trichomes responded plastically...

Multi-modal dataset of a polycrystalline metallic material: 3D microstructure and deformation fields

J.C. Stinville, J.M. Hestroffer, M.A. Charpagne, A.T. Polonsky, M.P. Echlin, C.J. Torbet, V. Valle, A. Loghin, O. Klaas, M.P. Miller, K.E. Nygren, I.J Beyerlein & T.M. Pollock
The development of high-fidelity mechanical property prediction models for the design of polycrystalline materials relies on large volumes of microstructural feature data. Concurrently, at these same scales, the deformation fields that develop during mechanical loading can be highly heterogeneous. Spatially correlated measurements of 3D microstructure and the ensuing deformation fields at the micro-scale would provide highly valuable insight into the relationship between microstructure and macroscopic mechanical response. They would also provide direct validation for numerical...

Heterozygote advantage and pleiotropy contribute to intraspecific color trait variability

Chiara De Pasqual, Kaisa Suisto, Jimi Kirvesoja, Swanne Gordon, Tarmo Ketola & Johanna Mappes
The persistence of intrapopulation phenotypic variation typically requires some form of balancing selection since drift and directional selection eventually erode genetic variation. Heterozygote advantage remains a classic explanation for the maintenance of genetic variation in the face of selection. However, examples of heterozygote advantage, other than those associated with disease resistance are rather uncommon. Across most of its distribution, males of the aposematic moth Arctia plantaginis have two hindwing phenotypes determined by a heritable one...

Data from: The Physiological Basis for Estimating Photosynthesis from Chlorophyll a Fluorescence

This data was collected to evaluate the efficacy of critical thinking assessment questions to probe students’ critical thinking skills in the context of biology and physics. The researchers used two research-based standardized critical thinking instruments known as the Biology Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking in Ecology (Eco-BLIC) and Physics Lab Inventory of Critical Thinking (PLIC). These instruments provide experimental scenarios and pose questions asking students to evaluate what to trust and what to do regarding...

Ecological traits drive genetic structuring in two open-habitat birds from the morphologically cryptic genus Elaenia (Aves: Tyrannidae)

Eliane L. Freitas, Leonardo Campagna, Bronwyn Butcher, Irby Lovette & Renato Caparroz
Understanding the relative contributions of the many factors that shape population genetic structuring is a central theme in evolutionary and conservation biology. Historically, abiotic or extrinsic factors (such as geographic barriers or climatic shifts) have received greater attention than biotic or intrinsic factors (such as dispersal or migration). This focus stems in part from the logistical difficulties in taking a comparative phylogeographic approach that contrasts species that have experienced similar abiotic conditions during their evolution...

Microsatellite data from: Genetic assessment reveals inbreeding, possible hybridization and low levels of genetic structure in a declining goose population

Johanna Honka, Serena Baini, Jeremy Searle, Laura Kvist & Jouni Aspi
The population numbers of taiga bean goose (Anser fabalis fabalis) have halved during recent decades. Since this subspecies is hunted throughout most of its range, the decline is of management concern. Knowledge of the genetic population structure and diversity is important for guiding management and conservation efforts. Genetically unique subpopulations might be hunted to extinction if not managed separately, and any inbreeding depression or lack of genetic diversity may affect the ability to adapt to...

Humanization of wildlife gut microbiota in urban environments

Andrew Moeller
Urbanization is rapidly altering Earth’s environments, demanding investigations of the impacts on resident wildlife. Here, we show that urban populations of coyotes (Canis latrans) and crested anole lizards (Anolis cristatellus) acquire gut microbiota constituents found in humans, including the gut bacterial lineages most significantly associated with urbanization in humans (e.g., Bacteroides). Comparisons of urban and rural wildlife and human populations revealed significant convergence of the gut microbiota among urban host populations. Remarkably, all microbial lineages...
