Data from: Bryophyte community assembly on young land uplift islands – dispersal and habitat filtering assessed using species traits

Andreas Karlsson Tiselius, Sofi Lundbäck, Niklas Lönnell, Roland Jansson & Mats Dynesius
Aim: To assess habitat filtering and dispersal limitation in spore plant community assembly using bryophytes on recently emerged land uplift islands as study system. Location: Gulf of Bothnia, northern Europe. Taxa: Bryophytes, including the spore plant phyla Bryophyta (mosses) and Marchantiophyta (liverworts). Methods: The species compositions of 20 coastal land uplift islands differing in age, area, connectivity, and habitat composition were recorded in the field. In addition, we compiled a list of the regional species...

Data from: Multidecadal changes in functional diversity lag behind the recovery of taxonomic diversity

Nathan Jay Baker, Francesca Pilotto, Phillip J. Haubrock, Burkhard Beudert & Peter Haase
1. While there has been increasing interest in how taxonomic diversity is changing over time, less is known about how long-term taxonomic changes may affect ecosystem functioning and resilience. Exploring long-term patterns of functional diversity can provide key insights into the capacity of a community to carry out ecological processes and the redundancy of species’ roles. 2. We focus on a protected freshwater system located in a national park in southeast Germany. We use a...

Vascular plant community surveys across different reindeer grazing regimes in the Fennoscandian tundra

Kate Gibson, Johan Oloffson, Arne Mooers & Melanie Monroe
This dataset contains data from the experiment described in "Gibson K., Olofsson, J. Mooers, A. Ø., & Monroe, M. J. (2021) Pulse grazing by reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) can increase the phylogenetic diversity of vascular plant communities in the Fennoscandian tundra. Ecology and Evolution. In press." The data is from a multi-year (2004-2007) quasi-experimental study in Northern Fennoscandia, which was designed to analyze the effect of reindeer grazing on vascular plant community diversity. Our study design...

Disease data of Triphragmium ulmariae on Filipendula ulmaria in the Skeppsvik archipelago

Jiasui Zhan, Lars Ericson, Jose González-Jiménez & Jeremy Burdon
The data set provides information on the incidence, prevalence and severity of a rust fungus Triphragmium ulmariae occurring in populations of the herbaceous perennial Filipendula ulmaria growing on a range of islands in the Skeppsvik archipelago, northern Sweden. These data, together with information on the size of individual host populations, has been used to monitor the impact of the disease on host population growth rates and temporal and spatial dynamics in a natural plant pathogen...

Large and small herbivores have strong effects on tundra vegetation in Scandinavia and Alaska

Elin Lindén, Laura Gough & Johan Olofsson
Large and small mammalian herbivores are present in most vegetated areas in the Arctic, and often have large impacts on plant community composition and ecosystem functioning. The relative importance of different herbivores and especially how their specific impact on the vegetation varies across the Arctic is however poorly understood. Here, we investigate how large and small herbivores influence vegetation density and plant community composition in four arctic vegetation types in Scandinavia and Alaska. We used...

Predator-prey overlap in three dimensions: cod benefit from capelin coming near the seafloor

Johanna Fall, Edda Johannesen, Göran Englund, Geir Odd Johansen & Øyvind Fiksen
Spatial overlap between predator and prey is a prerequisite for predation, but the degree of overlap is not necessarily proportional to prey consumption. This is because many of the behavioural processes that precede ingestion are non-linear and depend on local prey densities. In aquatic environments, predators and prey distribute not only across a surface, but also vertically in the water column, adding another dimension to the interaction. Integrating and simplifying behavioural processes across space and...

Data from: Reindeer control over subarctic treeline alters soil fungal communities with potential consequences for soil carbon storage

Henni Ylänne, Rieke L. Madsen, Carles Castaño, Daniel B. Metcalfe & Karina E. Clemmensen
Here we present the data and R script from “Reindeer control over subarctic treeline alters soil fungal communities with potential consequences for soil carbon storage” by Henni Ylänne, Rieke L. Madsen, Carles Castaño, Daniel B. Metcalfe and Karina E. Clemmensen (Global Change Biology, 2021). In this study we reported the impacts of grazing regime and mountain birch vicinity on the abundance, diversity and community composition of the soil fungal community, and explored how the soil...

Decreased temperature increases the expression of a disordered bacterial late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) protein that enhances natural transformation

Terhi Maula, Nelli Vahvelainen, Helena Tossavainen, Tuuli Koivunen, Marja T. Pöllänen, Anders Johansson, Perttu Permi & Riikka Ihalin
Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins are important players in the management of responses to stressful conditions, such as drought, high salinity, and changes in temperature. Many LEA proteins do not have defined three-dimensional structures, so they are intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) and are often highly hydrophilic. Although LEA-like sequences have been identified in bacterial genomes, the functions of bacterial LEA proteins have been studied only recently. Sequence analysis of outer membrane interleukin receptor I (BilRI)...

Camera trap data: Density dependence of daily activity in three ungulate species

J. Ignacio Ramirez
Daily activity in herbivores reflects a balance between finding food and safety. The safety-in-numbers theory predicts that living in higher population densities increases safety, which should affect this balance. High-density populations are thus expected to show a more even distribution of activity – i.e. spread – and higher activity levels across the day. We tested these predictions for three ungulate species; red deer (Cervus elaphus), roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) and wild boar (Sus scrofa). We...

Stoichiometric mismatch causes a warming-induced regime shift in experimental plankton communities

Sebastian Diehl, Stella A. Berger, Wojciech Uszko & Herwig Stibor
Many plant and algal communities respond to warming with shifts towards more carbon-rich species and growth forms, thus diluting essential elements in their biomass and intensifying the stoichiometric mismatch with herbivore nutrient requirements. The dataset is from a 95-day mesocosm experiment on the spring succession of an assembled plankton community in which we manipulated temperature (ambient vs. +3.6°C) and presence vs. absence of two types of grazers (ciliates and Daphnia) in a 2x2x2 factorial design...

Chinook salmon environmental data and allele frequency matrix

Yara Alshwairikh, Rebekah Horn, Travis Seaborn, Shawn Narum, Lisette Waits, William Swain, Steve Stephens-Cardenas, Jenny Olsson & Shayla Kroeze
Many species that undergo long breeding migrations, such as anadromous fishes, face highly heterogeneous environments along their migration corridors and at their spawning sites. These environmental challenges encountered at different life stages may act as strong selective pressures and drive local adaptation. However, the relative influence of environmental conditions along the migration corridor compared to the conditions at spawning sites on driving selection is still unknown. In this study, we performed genome-environment associations (GEA) to...
