2019. Martin, Thomas E. Causes of evolved differences in clutch size among songbird species remain debated. I propose a new conceptual framework that integrates aspects of... The American Naturalist.
2. Data from: A framework for simultaneous tests of abiotic, biotic, and historical drivers of species distributions: empirical tests for North American wood warblers based on climate and pollen
2019. Sanín, Camilo and Anderson, Robert P. Understanding how abiotic, biotic and historical factors shape species distributions remains a central question in ecology, but studies linking bio... The American Naturalist.
3. Data from: A migratory northern ungulate in the pursuit of spring: jumping or surfing the green wave?
2019. Bischof, Richard, Loe, Leif Egil, Meisingset, Erling L., Zimmermann, Barbara, Moorter, Bram Van, and Mysterud, Atle. The Forage Maturation Hypothesis (FMH) states that herbivores migrate along a phenological gradient of plant development in order to maximize energ... The American Naturalist.
4. Data from: A novel, enigmatic basal leafflower moth lineage pollinating a derived leafflower host illustrates the dynamics of host shifts, partner replacement, and apparent coadaptation in intimate mutualisms
2019. Luo, Shi-Xiao, Yao, Gang, Wang, Ziwei, Zhang, Dianxiang, and Hembry, David H. Leafflower plant/leafflower moth brood pollination mutualisms are widespread in the Paleotropics. Leafflower moths pollinate leafflower plants, but... The American Naturalist.
5. Data from: A test of the "flexible stem" model of evolution: ancestral plasticity, genetic accommodation, and morphological divergence in the threespine stickleback radiation
2019. Wund, Matthew A, Baker, John A, Clancy, Brendan, Golub, Justin L, and Foster, Susan A. If an ancestral stem group repeatedly colonizes similar environments, developmental plasticity specific to that group should consistently give rise... The American Naturalist.
2019. Heath, Jeremy J., Abbot, Patrick, and Stireman, John O. Most studies of adaptive radiation in animals focus on resource competition as the primary driver of trait divergence. The roles of other ecologica... The American Naturalist.
7. Data from: Anthropogenic harvesting pressure and changes in life history: insights from a rocky intertidal limpet
2019. Fenberg, Phillip B. and Roy, Kaustuv. The importance of large breeding individuals for maintaining the health of marine fish and invertebrate populations has long been recognized. Unfor... The American Naturalist.
8. Data from: Ants at plant wounds – a little-known trophic interaction with evolutionary implications for ant-plant interactions
2019. Staab, Michael, Fornoff, Felix, Klein, Alexandra-Maria, and Blüthgen, Nico. Extrafloral nectaries (EFNs) allow plants to engage in mutualisms with ants preventing herbivory in exchange for food. EFNs occur scattered through... The American Naturalist.
9. Data from: Biotic interactions contribute to the geographic range limit of an annual plant: herbivory and phenology mediate fitness beyond a range margin
2019. Benning, John William, Eckhart, Vincent M, Geber, Monica A, and Moeller, David A. Species’ geographic distributions have already shifted during the Anthropocene. However, we often do not know what aspects of the environment drive... The American Naturalist.
10. Data from: Cichlid fish use coloration as a cue to assess the threat status of heterospecific intruders
2019. Lehtonen, Topi K., Sowersby, Will, Gagnon, Karine, and Wong, Bob B. M. The ability to assess the threat posed by competitors, and to respond appropriately, is important for reducing the costs of aggression. In this res... The American Naturalist.
