    biodiversity hotspot - cingulata - forest fragmentation - habitat loss - neotropical mammals - neotropical region - pilosa - xenarthra

    Xenarthrans—anteaters, sloths, and armadillos—have essential functions for ecosystem maintenance, such as insect control and nutrient cycling, playing key roles as ecosystem engineers. Because of habitat loss and fragmentation, hunting pressure, and conflicts with domestic dogs, these species have been threatened locally, regionally, or even across their full distribution ranges. The Neotropics harbor 21 species of armadillos, 10 anteaters, and 6 sloths. Our data set includes the families Chlamyphoridae (13), Dasypodidae (7), Myrmecophagidae (3), Bradypodidae (4), and Megalonychidae (2). We have no occurrence data on Dasypus pilosus (Dasypodidae). Regarding Cyclopedidae, until recently, only one species was recognized, but new genetic studies have revealed that the group is represented by seven species. In this data paper, we compiled a total of 42,528 records of 31 species, represented by occurrence and quantitative data, totaling 24,847 unique georeferenced records. The geographic range is from the southern United States, Mexico, and Caribbean countries at the northern portion of the Neotropics, to the austral distribution in Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, and Uruguay. Regarding anteaters, Myrmecophaga tridactyla has the most records (n = 5,941), and Cyclopes sp. have the fewest (n = 240). The armadillo species with the most data is Dasypus novemcinctus (n = 11,588), and the fewest data are recorded for Calyptophractus retusus (n = 33). With regard to sloth species, Bradypus variegatus has the most records (n = 962), and Bradypus pygmaeus has the fewest (n = 12). Our main objective with Neotropical Xenarthrans is to make occurrence and quantitative data available to facilitate more ecological research, particularly if we integrate the xenarthran data with other data sets of Neotropical Series that will become available very soon (i.e., Neotropical Carnivores, Neotropical Invasive Mammals, and Neotropical Hunters and Dogs). Therefore, studies on trophic cascades, hunting pressure, habitat loss, fragmentation effects, species invasion, and climate change effects will be possible with the Neotropical Xenarthrans data set. Please cite this data paper when using its data in publications. We also request that researchers and teachers inform us of how they are using these data

    1988–2017 - amphibians - birds - Brazil - mammals - reptiles - road effects - road mortality - road survey - species occurrence - wildlife-vehicle collisions

    Mortality from collision with vehicles is the most visible impact of road traffic on wildlife. Mortality due to roads (hereafter road-kill) can affect the dynamic of populations of many species and can, therefore, increase the risk of local decline or extinction. This is especially true in Brazil, where plans for road network upgrading and expansion overlaps biodiversity hotspot areas, which are of high importance for global conservation. Researchers, conservationists and road planners face the challenge to define a national strategy for road mitigation and wildlife conservation. The main goal of this dataset is a compilation of geo-referenced road-kill data from published and unpublished road surveys. This is the first Data Paper in the BRAZIL series (see ATLANTIC, NEOTROPICAL, and BRAZIL collections of Data Papers published in Ecology), which aims make public road-kill data for species in the Brazilian Regions. The dataset encompasses road-kill records from 45 personal communications and 26 studies published in peer-reviewed journals, theses and reports. The road-kill dataset comprises 21,512 records, 83% of which are identified to the species level (n = 450 species). The dataset includes records of 31 amphibian species, 90 reptile species, 229 bird species, and 99 mammal species. One species is classified as Endangered, eight as Vulnerable and twelve as Near Threatened. The species with the highest number of records are: Didelphis albiventris (n = 1,549), Volatinia jacarina (n = 1,238), Cerdocyon thous (n = 1,135), Helicops infrataeniatus (n = 802), and Rhinella icterica (n = 692). Most of the records came from southern Brazil. However, observations of the road-kill incidence for non-Least Concern species are more spread across the country. This dataset can be used to identify which taxa seems to be vulnerable to traffic, analyze temporal and spatial patterns of road-kill at local, regional and national scales and also used to understand the effects of road-kill on population persistence. It may also contribute to studies that aims to understand the influence of landscape and environmental influences on road-kills, improve our knowledge on road-related strategies on biodiversity conservation and be used as complementary information on large-scale and macroecological studies. No copyright or proprietary restrictions are associated with the use of this data set other than citation of this Data Paper.

    ecological genomics - ecosystem engineering - evolutionary genetics - genome sequencing - niche construction - peatlands - Sphagnome - Sphagnum
    Considerable progress has been made in ecological and evolutionary genetics with studies demonstrating how genes underlying plant and microbial traits can influence adaptation and even ‘extend’ to influence community structure and ecosystem level processes. Progress in this area is limited to model systems with deep genetic and genomic resources that often have negligible ecological impact or interest. Thus, important linkages between genetic adaptations and their consequences at organismal and ecological scales are often lacking. Here we introduce the Sphagnome Project, which incorporates genomics into a long-running history of Sphagnum research that has documented unparalleled contributions to peatland ecology, carbon sequestration, biogeochemistry, microbiome research, niche construction, and ecosystem engineering. The Sphagnome Project encompasses a genus-level sequencing effort that represents a new type of model system driven not only by genetic tractability, but by ecologically relevant questions and hypotheses.

    IncP-1, IncP-7 and IncP-9 plasmids often carry genes encoding enzymes involved in the degradation of man-made and natural contaminants, thus contributing to bacterial survival in polluted environments. However, the lack of suitable molecular tools often limits the detection of these plasmids in the environment. In this study, PCR followed by Southern blot hybridization detected the presence of plasmid-specific sequences in total community (TC-) DNA or fosmid DNA from samples originating from different environments and geographic regions. A novel primer system targeting IncP-9 plasmids was developed and applied along with established primers for IncP-1 and IncP-7. Screening TC- DNA from biopurification systems (BPS) which are used on farms for the purification of pesticide-contaminated water revealed high abundances of IncP-1 plasmids belonging to different subgroups as well as IncP-7 and IncP-9. The novel IncP-9 primer-system targeting the rep gene of nine IncP-9 subgroups allowed the detection of a high diversity of IncP-9 plasmid specific sequences in environments with different sources of pollution. Thus polluted sites are "hot spots'' of plasmids potentially carrying catabolic genes.
    Does predation danger on southward migration curtail parental investment by female western sandpipers?

    Theory predicts that if extending parental care delays migratory departure, and if later migration is more dangerous, then parental care should be curtailed to make an earlier departure. Adult western sandpipers (Calidris mauri) depart Alaska in July, and the presence of peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) along their route rises steeply during the migratory period. Pacific dunlins (C. alpina pacifica) are ecologically similar, but do not depart Alaska until October, after peregrine passage has peaked. Because peregrine migration begins earlier in years with early snowmelt, we predicted that the curtailment of parental investment by western sandpiper, but not of Pacific dunlins, should be more pronounced in these more dangerous years. We measured breeding phenology of these species on the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge during three seasons with strongly differing snowmelt timing. We found that they initiated breeding simultaneously, and that western sandpipers, but not Pacific dunlins, ceased laying increasingly earlier, provided increasingly less parental care and departed increasingly sooner as snowmelt was earlier. Advancing departure date by the overall average of 5.2d relative to dunlin reduces migratory exposure to peregrines by an estimated 18%. Our results support the hypothesis that natural selection has favored curtailment of parental investment by western sandpipers to advance migratory departure.

    Our objective was to use data mining to develop and validate a detection model for clinical mastitis (CM) using sensor data collected at nine Dutch dairy herds milking automatically. Sensor data was available for almost 3.5 million quarter milkings (QM) from 1,109 cows; 348 QM with CM were observed by the participating farmers. Data was divided into a training and a test set, stratified at the cow level. For model building, QM with CM (n = 243) from the training set were taken together with 24,987 QM with a somatic cell count less than 200,000 cells/ml on a milk production test day from cows that never exceeded this threshold during all test days within parity and that were never visually checked by the farmers for CM. The model used decision tree (DT) induction as base classifier, with and without bagging and boosting techniques. Both bagging and boosting techniques work by building models using the base classifier on various samples of the training data. For validation two test sets were created. The first included 105 QM with CM and 13,313 QM without CM, using the same selection as for the training. This test set (Test_GreyOut) excluded the large pool of QM that have a less clear mastitis status. The second test set included the same 105 QM with CM but this dataset included QM with a less clear mastitis status (Test_GreyIn): for negative examples, those QM that were not scored as having CM by the farmers were labeled as negative for CM. From this large sample (n = 1,146,544), a random sample of 50,000 QM was selected. Sensitivity levels were computed at fixed SP levels, and the transformed partial area under the curve (pAUC) was calculated for specificity values of 97% or more to evaluate performance. To visualize performance of the detection models for specificity values of 97% or more, receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were constructed. When using the Test_GreyOut set, the transformed pAUC increased from 0.713 when using the base classifier alone, to 0.787 when combined with boosting, to 0.800 when combined with bagging. At a specificity of 99%, sensitivity was 43.5% for the base classifier, 60.0% when combined with boosting and 61% when combined with bagging. When testing on the TestInGrey set, pAUC values were lower, but still increased when bagging and boosting techniques were used: values increased from 0.643 when using the base classifier alone, to 0.677 when combined with boosting, to 0.702 when combined with bagging. At a specificity of 99%, sensitivity was 24.7% for the base classifier, 30.5% when combined with boosting and 35.2% when combined with bagging. These results were obtained using very narrow time-windows. It is therefore concluded that models developed by DT induction are promising for future implementation

    Adoption and implementation of efficient somatic cell count (SCC) control practices is an action of behavioral change, which is notoriously difficult to achieve and sustain, even when substantial production and economic gains are to be expected. In the current study, it was tested whether farmers are aware of these potential gains and whether providing farmers additional information on projected economic losses on a regular basis may motivate them to implement enhanced control practices. In-depth interviews revealed that the majority of the dairy farmers perceived cow-specific and herd-specific projected losses, due to elevated SCC levels, as not very relevant to them. Farmers posed that SCC was already monitored regularly at cow-level and provided them adequate information to support decision making. Actions were rationalized in a specific context comprising the intertwined notions of intentions and efficacy believes. Understanding of these notions is essential when advising farmers, being either veterinarians or others providing agricultural extension, to support farmers implementing enhanced management decisions.
