    DateIssued: 07-27-2016

    Description: The New Zealand acanthisittid wrens are the sister-taxon to all other “perching birds” (Passeriformes) and – including recently extinct species ...

  6. Data from: Vervet monkeys use paths consistent with context-specific spatial movement heuristics Dryad

    DateIssued: 10-28-2015

    Description: Animal foraging routes are analogous to the computationally demanding “traveling salesman problem” (TSP), where individuals must find the shortest...

  7. Data from: The selective myosin II inhibitor blebbistatin reversibly eliminates gastrovascular flow and stolon tip pulsations in the colonial hydroid ... Dryad

    DateIssued: 12-22-2015

    Description: Blebbistatin reversibly disrupted both stolon tip pulsations and gastrovascular flow in the colonial hydroid Podocoryna carnea. Epithelial longitudina...

  8. Data from: Continuous theta burst stimulation over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex decreases medium load working memory performance in healthy... Dryad

    DateIssued: 09-23-2015

    Description: The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) plays a key role in working memory. Evidence indicates that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over th...

  9. Data from: Perceptual expertise in forensic facial image comparison Dryad

    DateIssued: 09-24-2015

    Description: Forensic facial identification examiners are required to match the identity of faces in images that vary substantially, owing to changes in viewing co...

  10. Data from: Novel genetic capacitors and potentiators for the natural genetic variation of sensory bristles and their trait-specificity in Drosophila Dryad

    DateIssued: 02-24-2016

    Description: Cryptic genetic variation (CGV) is defined as the genetic variation that has little effect on phenotypic variation under a normal condition, but contr...

  11. Data from: Lack of spatial immunogenetic structure among wolverine (Gulo gulo) populations suggestive of broad scale balancing selection Dryad

    DateIssued: 10-16-2015

    Description: Elucidating the adaptive genetic potential of wildlife populations to environmental selective pressures is fundamental for species conservation. Genes...

  12. Data from: Selection on bristle length has the ability to drive the evolution of male abdominal appendages in the sepsid fly Themira biloba Dryad

    DateIssued: 07-07-2016

    Description: Many exaggerated and novel traits are strongly influenced by sexual selection. Although sexual selection is a powerful evolutionary force, underlying ...

  13. Data from: Phylogenetic placement of the unusual jumping spider Depreissia Lessert, and a new synapomorphy uniting Hisponinae and Salticinae (Araneae,... Dryad

    DateIssued: 01-08-2016

    Description: The relationships of the unusual salticid spider Depreissia from central Africa and Borneo have been difficult to resolve, obscured by its highly modi...

  14. Data from: Regulatory RNA at the root of animals: dynamic expression of developmental lincRNAs in the calcisponge Sycon ciliatum Dryad

    DateIssued: 01-14-2016

    Description: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important regulatory roles during animal development, and it has been hypothesized that an RNA-based gene regulati...

  15. Data from: Phylogeographic pattern of range expansion provides evidence for cryptic species lineages in Silene nutans in Western Europe Dryad

    DateIssued: 03-09-2016

    Description: As a result of recent or past evolutionary processes, a single species might consist of distinct Evolutionary Significant Units (ESUs), even correspon...

  16. Data from: Estimating cranial musculoskeletal constraints in theropod dinosaurs Dryad

    DateIssued: 12-08-2015

    Description: Many inferences on the biology, behaviour and ecology of extinct vertebrates are based on the reconstruction of the musculature and rely considerably ...

  17. Data from: Camouflaged or tanned: plasticity in freshwater snail pigmentation Dryad

    DateIssued: 09-30-2015
