Data from: Fine-scale genetic structure in a wild bird population: the role of limited dispersal and environmentally-based selection as causal factors

Colin Garroway, Reinder J. Radersma, Irem Sepil, Anna W. Santure, Isabelle De Cauwer, Jon Slate, Ben C. Sheldon, Colin J. Garroway & Reinder Radersma
Individuals are typically not randomly distributed in space; consequently ecological and evolutionary theory depends heavily on understanding the spatial structure of populations. The central challenge of landscape genetics is therefore to link spatial heterogeneity of environments to population genetic structure. Here, we employ multivariate spatial analyses to identify environmentally induced genetic structures in a single breeding population of 1174 great tits Parus major genotyped at 4701 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci. Despite the small spatial scale...

Data from: Bioturbation determines the response of benthic ammonia oxidising microorganisms to ocean acidification

Bonnie Laverock, Vassilis Kitidis, Karen Tait, Jack A. Gilbert, A. Mark Osborn & Steve Widdicombe
Ocean acidification (OA), caused by the dissolution of increasing concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in seawater, is projected to cause significant changes to marine ecology and biogeochemistry. Potential impacts on the microbially driven cycling of nitrogen are of particular concern. Specifically, under seawater pH levels approximating future OA scenarios, rates of ammonia oxidation (the rate-limiting first step of the nitrification pathway) have been shown to dramatically decrease in seawater, but not in underlying sediments....
