1. Data from: A brood parasite selects for its own egg traits

2019. Spottiswoode, Claire N. and Spottiswoode, C. N. Many brood parasitic birds lay eggs that mimic their hosts' eggs in appearance. This typically arises from selection from discriminating hosts that... Biology Letters. University of Cambridge.

2. Data from: A circannual perspective on daily and total flight distances in a long-distance migratory raptor, the Montagu's harrier, Circus pygargus

2019. Schlaich, Almut E., Bouten, Willem, Bretagnolle, Vincent, Heldbjerg, Henning, Klaassen, Raymond H. G., Sørensen, Iben H., Villers, Alexandre, and Both, Christiaan. Long-distance migrants are particularly recognized for the distances covered on migration, yet little is known about the distances they cover durin... Biology Letters.

3. Data from: A collection of non-human primate computed tomography scans housed in MorphoSource, a repository for 3D data

2019. Copes, Lynn E., Lucas, Lynn M., Thostenson, James D., Hoekstra, Hopi E., and Boyer, Douglas M. A dataset of high-resolution microCT scans of primate skulls (crania and mandibles) and certain postcranial elements was collected to address quest... Scientific Data.

4. Data from: A Cretaceous aged Paleotropical dispersal established an endemic lineage of Caribbean praying mantises

2019. Svenson, Gavin, Rodrigues, Henrique M., and Svenson, Gavin J. Recent phylogenetic advances have uncovered remarkable biogeographic histories that have challenged traditional concepts of dispersal, vicariance a...

5. Data from: A full annual perspective on sex-biased migration timing in long-distance migratory birds

2019. Briedis, Martins, Bauer, Silke, Adamik, Peter, Alves, José A., Costa, Joana S., Emmenegger, Tamara, Gustafsson, Lars, Koleček, Jaroslav, Liechti, Felix, Meier, Christoph M., Prochazka, Petr, and Hahn, Steffen. In many taxa, the most common form of sex-biased migration timing is protandry – the earlier arrival of males at breeding areas. Here we test this ... Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

6. Data from: A genome-wide data assessment of the African lion (Panthera leo) population genetic structure and diversity in Tanzania

2019. Smitz, Nathalie, Jouvenet, Olivia, Ambwene Ligate, Fredrick, Crosmary, William-George, Ikanda, Dennis, Chardonnet, Philippe, Fusari, Alessandro, Meganck, Kenny, Gillet, François, Melletti, Mario, and Michaux, Johan R. The African lion (Panthera leo), listed as a vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (Appendix II of CITES), is mainly impact... PLOS ONE.

7. Data from: A global bionomic database for the dominant vectors of human malaria

2019. Massey, N. Claire, Garrod, Gala, Wiebe, Antoinette, Henry, Andrew J., Huang, Zhi, Moyes, Catherine L., and Sinka, Marianne E. Anopheles mosquitoes were first recognised as the transmitters of human malaria in the late 19th Century and have been subject to a huge amount of ... Scientific Data.

8. Data from: A hybrid phylogenetic–phylogenomic approach for species tree estimation in African Agama lizards with applications to biogeography, character evolution, and diversification

2019. Leaché, Adam D., Wagner, Philipp, Linkem, Charles W., Böhme, Wolfgang, Papenfuss, Theodore J., Chong, Rebecca A., Lavin, Brian R., Bauer, Aaron M., Nielsen, Stuart V., Greenbaum, Eli, Rödel, Mark-Oliver, Schmitz, Andreas, LeBreton, Matthew, Ineich, Ivan, Chirio, Laurent, Ofori-Boateng, Caleb, Eniang, Edem A., Baha El Din, Sherif, Lemmon, Alan R., and Burbrink, Frank T. Africa is renowned for its biodiversity and endemicity, yet little is known about the factors shaping them across the continent. African Agama liza... Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution.

9. Data from: A molecular genetic time scale demonstrates Cretaceous origins and multiple diversification rate shifts within the order Galliformes (Aves)

2019. Stein, R. Will, Brown, Joseph W., and Mooers, Arne Ø. The phylogeny of Galliformes (landfowl) has been studied extensively; however, the associated chronologies have been criticized recently due to mis... Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution.

10. Data from: A multilocus perspective on phylogenetic relationships in the Namib darkling beetle genus Onymacris (Tenebrionidae)
