Data from: Genome-wide selection components analysis in a fish with male pregnancy

Sarah P. Flanagan & Adam G. Jones
A major goal of evolutionary biology is to identify the genome-level targets of natural and sexual selection. With the advent of next-generation sequencing, whole-genome selection components analysis provides a promising avenue in the search for loci affected by selection in nature. Here, we implement a genome-wide selection components analysis in the sex-role-reversed Gulf pipefish, Syngnathus scovelli. Our approach involves a double-digest restriction-site associated DNA sequencing (ddRAD-seq) technique, applied to adult females, non-pregnant males, pregnant males...

Data from: Month of birth and risk of autism spectrum disorder, a retrospective cohort of male children born in Israel

Hila Shalev, Ido Solt & Gabriel Chodick
Background: Increased incidence and prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) over the last two decades have prompted considerable efforts to investigate its etiological factors. We examined an association between month of birth and ASD incidence. Methods: In a retrospective cohort of male children born from January 1999 to December 2008 in a large health organization in Israel (Maccabi Healthcare Services), ASD was followed from birth through December 2015. Results: Of 108,548 boys, 975 cases of...

Data from: Multilevel and sex-specific selection on competitive traits in North American red squirrels.

David N. Fisher, Stan Boutin, Ben Dantzer, Murray M. Humphries, Jeffrey E. Lane & Andrew G. McAdam
Individuals often interact more closely with some members of the population (e.g. offspring, siblings or group members) than they do with other individuals. This structuring of interactions can lead to multilevel natural selection, where traits expressed at the group-level influence fitness alongside individual-level traits. Such multilevel selection can alter evolutionary trajectories, yet is rarely quantified in the wild, especially for species that do not interact in clearly demarcated groups. We quantified multilevel natural selection on...

Data from: Inhibition decorrelates visual feature representations in the inner retina

Katrin Franke, Philipp Berens, Timm Schubert, Matthias Bethge, Thomas Euler & Tom Baden
The retina extracts visual features for transmission to the brain. Different types of bipolar cell split the photoreceptor input into parallel channels and provide the excitatory drive for downstream visual circuits. Mouse bipolar cell types have been described at great anatomical and genetic detail, but a similarly deep understanding of their functional diversity is lacking. Here, by imaging light-driven glutamate release from more than 13,000 bipolar cell axon terminals in the intact retina, we show...

Data from: Artificial night lighting inhibits feeding in moths

Frank Van Langevelde, Elmar M. Veenendaal, Thijs P. M. Fijen & Roy H. A. Van Grunsven
One major, yet poorly studied, change in the environment is nocturnal light pollution, which strongly alters habitats of nocturnally active species. Artificial night lighting is often considered as driving force behind rapid moth population declines in severely illuminated countries. To understand these declines, the question remains whether artificial light causes only increased mortality or also sublethal effects. We show that moths subjected to artificial night lighting spend less time feeding than moths in darkness, with...

Data from: Ants at plant wounds – a little-known trophic interaction with evolutionary implications for ant-plant interactions

Michael Staab, Felix Fornoff, Alexandra-Maria Klein & Nico Blüthgen
Extrafloral nectaries (EFNs) allow plants to engage in mutualisms with ants preventing herbivory in exchange for food. EFNs occur scattered through the plant phylogeny and likely evolved independently from herbivore-created wounds subsequently visited by ants collecting leaked sap. Records of wound-feeding ants are, however, anecdotal. By surveying 38,000 trees from 40 species, we conduct the first quantitative ecological study of this overlooked behavior. Ant-wound interactions were widespread (0.5% of tree individuals) and occurred on 23...

Data from: A facilitated diffusion mechanism establishes the Drosophila Dorsal gradient

Morphology of Mictis profana after experimentally preventing leg developement. Data also from wild caught M. profana.

Ummat Somjee, Christine Miller, Nikolai Tatarnic & Leigh Simmons
This data consists of morphological measurements of multiple morphological traits (pre-copulatory, post-copulatory and naturally selected), from two experimental groups. One group was prevented from developing mid-legs at their 5th instar, the other was prevented from developing much larger hind-legs. This data also contains morphological measures of wild-caught adults.
