The included files were used to reconstruct the phylogeny of Coelidiinae using combined morphological and molecular data, estimate divergence times and reconstruct ancestral biogeographic areas as described in the manuscript submitted for publication. The file “Coelidiinae_dna_morph_combined.nex” is a text file in standard NEXUS format used by various phylogenetic analysis programs. This file includes the aligned and concatenated nucleotide sequences or five gene regions (mitochondrial COI and 16S, and nuclear 28S D-2, histone H3, histone H2A and wingless) indicated by standard “ACGT” nucleotide symbols with missing data indicated by “?”, and morphological character data as defined in Table S3 used in the analyses. The data partitions are indicated toward the end of the file by ranges of numbers (“charset Subset 1 – 4” for the DNA data and “charset morph” for the morphological characters) followed by commands for the phylogenetic analysis program MrBayes that specify the model settings for each data partition. Detailed data on species included (as rows) in the dataset, including collection localities and GenBank accession numbers are provided in the Table_S1_Specimen_information.csv file. The file "TablesS2-S4.pdf" lists the primers used for polymerase chain reaction amplification, the list of morphological character definitions, and the morphological character matrix. The file “RASP_Distribution.csv” contains a list of the species included in the phylogenetic dataset (first column) and a code (second column) indicating their distributions as follows: (A) Oriental, (B) Palaearctic, (C) Australian, (D) Afrotropical, (E) Neotropical, and (F) Nearctic. More than one letter indicates that the species occurs in more than one region. The file "infile_for_BEAST.txt" is the input file in XML format used for the molecular divergence time analysis using the program BEAST (Bayesian Evolutionary Analysis by Sampling Trees) as described in the Methods section of the manuscript. This file includes comments that document the steps of the analysis.

Data associated with the manuscript "Niche conservatism and spread explain hybridization and introgression between native and invasive fish" by Jordan H. Hartman, Joel B. Corush, Eric R. Larson, Jeremy S. Tiemann, Philip Willink, and Mark A. Davis. For this project, we combined results of ecological niche models (ENMs) and next-generation restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RADseq) to test theories of niche conservatism and biotic resistance on the success of invasion, hybridization, and extent of introgression between native Western Banded Killifish and non-native Eastern Banded Killifish. This dataset provides the sampling locations and number of Banded Killifish in each population, accession numbers for RADseq from the National Center for Biotechnology Information Sequence Read Archive and the assignment of each Banded Killifish, the habitat associations of each population from the ENMs, and the occurrence points used to build the ENMs.

This dataset is provided to support the statements in Tarokh, A., and R.Y. Makhnenko. 2019. Remarks on the solid and bulk responses of fluid-filled porous rock, Geophysics. The unjacketed bulk modulus is a poroelastic parameter that can be directly measured in a laboratory test under a loading that preserves the difference between the mean stress and pore pressure constant. For a monomineralic rock, the measurement of the unjacketed bulk modulus is ignored because it is assumed to be equal to the bulk modulus of the solid phase. To examine this assumption, we tested porous sandstones (Berea and Dunnville) and limestones (Apulian and Indiana) mainly composed of quartz and calcite, respectively, under the unjacketed condition. The presence of microscale inhomogeneities, in the form of non-connected (occluded) pores, was shown to cause a considerable difference between the unjacketed bulk modulus and the bulk modulus of the solid phase. Furthermore, we found the unjacketed bulk modulus to be independent of the unjacketed pressure and Terzaghi effective pressure and therefore a constant.
