Geographical and ecological variables of Pseudotaxus chienii populations

Ting Wang
Pseudotaxus chienii, belonging to the monotypic genus Pseudotaxus (Taxaceae), is a relict conifer endemic to China. Its populations are usually small and patchily distributed, having a low capacity of natural regeneration. To gain a clearer understanding of how landscape variables affect the local adaptation of P. chienii, we applied EST-SSR markers in conjunction with landscape genetics methods: (1) to examine the population genetic pattern and spatial genetic structure; (2) to perform genome scan and selection...

Scripts in C for simulating the wave of gene advance under diverse systems of mating

Xin-Sheng Hu, Xin-Xin Zhang, Xiang Cheng, Ling-Ling Li, Xi Wang, Wei Zhou & Xiao-Yang Chen
This dataset includes 4 programs coded in C for simulating the wave of gene advance under diverse systems of mating. Program 1 was used for simulation under unifor density based on Equations (1) and (2) in the main text. Program 2 was used for simulation under uniform density based on Equations (5)-(11). Program 3 was used for Monte Carlo (MC) simulation under uniform density. Program 4 was used for MC simulation under logistic growth model....

The transcription factor PagLBD3 contributes to the regulation of secondary growth in Populus

Lijun Liu, Zhen Han, Tong Yang, Ying Guo, Wenhui Cui, Lijuan Yao, Gang Li, Aimin Wu & Jihong Li
Lateral organ boundaries domain (LBD) genes encode plant-specific transcription factors that participate in regulating various developmental processes. In this study, we genetically characterized PagLBD3 as an important regulator of secondary growth in Populus. Overexpression of PagLBD3 increased stem secondary growth in Populus with significantly higher rate of cambial cells differentiated into phloem, while dominant repression of PagLBD3 significantly decreased the rate of cambial cells differentiated into phloem. Furthermore, we identified 1756 PagLBD3 genome-wide putative direct...

Supplementary material from \"Evolutionary dynamics of sustainability ideas in China: inferences from ecological and economic concepts usage in People’s Daily\"

Danqing Zhang
Previous cultural evolutionary analyses have exploited the use of neutral models, or random copying models, analogous to neutral genetic drift, as null models to distinguish the unbiased copying and biased transmission of neutral cultural traits, but the dynamics and underlying mechanism of non-neutral cultural traits have not yet been explored. Adopting an ecological perspective, we define ecological and economic concepts as non-neutral cultural traits constitute a complex ecosystem of meaning representing sustainability ideas. We analyse...

Geographical variables of invasive Mikania micrantha populations

Ting Wang
Why invasive species can rapidly adapt to novel environments is a puzzling question known as the genetic paradox of invasive species. This paradox is explainable in terms of transposable elements (TEs) activity, which are theorized to be powerful mutational forces to create genetic variation. Mikania micrantha, a noxious invasive weed, in this sense provides an excellent opportunity to test the explanation. The genetic and epigenetic variation of 21 invasive populations of M. micrantha in southern...

RIP2 interacts with REL1 to control leaf architecture by modulating brassinosteroid signaling in rice

FPKM (Fragments per kilobase of exon model per million mapped fragments) value of all detected genes in in WT, rel1, rip2, and rel1 rip2 mutants. ZH11_1, ZH11_2, ZH11_3 represent samples were collected from ZH11 with three independent biological replicates. rel1_1, rel1_2, rel1_3 represent samples were collected from rel1 mutants with three independent biological replicates. rip2_1, rip2_2, rip2_3 represent samples were collected from rip2 mutant with three independent biological replicates. rel1rip2_1, rel1rip2_2, rel1rip2_3 represent samples were...

Soil macroinvertebrate communities have been assessed worldwide using the standard ISO/TSBF sampling procedure. The Macrofauna database currently comprises 3694 sites distributed throughout 41 countries, from 55º S latitude to 57ºN, sea level to over 4000m in elevation, in total annual total rainfall regimes between 500 and >3000mm and 5 to 32ºC mean temperature. These communities are significantly influenced by climatic parameters, soil texture and vegetation cover. Abundance and diversity were highest in tropical rain forests...
