Mosquitoes are important vectors for pathogens that infect humans and other vertebrate animals. Some aspects of adult mosquito behavior and mosquito ecology play an important role in determining the capacity of vector populations to transmit pathogens. Here, we re-examine factors affecting the transmission of pathogens by mosquitoes using a new approach. Unlike most previous models, this framework considers the behavioral states and state transitions of adult mosquitoes through a sequence of activity bouts. We developed...

Salmon Creek Organic Geochemistry Chemometric Data

Laurel Larsen & Cleo Woelfle-Erskine
This datafile contains fluorescence indices and the results of a parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) performed on samples collected within the Salmon Creek Watershed in Sonoma County, Califonia. Please see Woelfle-Erskine et al. (2017) for site location details. The present dataset is provided in support of Larsen and Woelfle-Erskine (in review). The purpose of this dataset was to develop a fluorescent fingerprint for purposes of differentiating between surface water, groundwater, and hyporheic water.

Salmon Creek radon data

This datafile contains results of 222Rn analysis of samples collected within the Salmon Creek Watershed in Sonoma County, Califonia. Please see Woelfle-Erskine et al. (2017) for site location details. The present dataset is provided in support of Larsen and Woelfle-Erskine (in review).The purpose of this dataset was to determine relative ages of water samples.Data were collected in 2016 in the Fay Creek and Tannery Creek watersheds, both second-order tributaries of Salmon Creek.For further information, please...

Nocturnal dispersal flight of crickets: behavioural and physiological responses to cool environmental temperatures

Caroline Williams, Baojun Sun, Christopher Huebner, Lisa Treidel, Kevin Roberts, G.J. Kenagy & Rebecca Clark
1. Flight of nocturnal insects may be limited by cool nighttime environmental temperatures. We used laboratory and field experiments to explore the thermal basis of nocturnal flight in wing-polymorphic Gryllus lineaticeps crickets consisting of long-winged (LW), flight-capable morphs and short-winged (SW), flight-incapable morphs. These crickets are a model for life history evolution and loss of flight, but their thermal requirements for flight have been unknown. We hypothesized that LW crickets achieve warm body temperatures required...

Ecological basis and genetic architecture of crypsis polymorphism in the desert clicker grasshopper (Ligurotettix coquilletti)

Timothy O'Connor, Marissa Sandoval, Jiarui Wang, Jacob Hans, Risa Takenaka, & Noah Whiteman
Color polymorphic species can offer exceptional insight into the ecology and genetics of adaptation. Although the genetic architecture of animal coloration is diverse, many color polymorphisms are associated with large structural variants and maintained by biotic interactions. Grasshoppers are notably polymorphic in both color and karyotype, making them excellent models for understanding the ecological drivers and genetic underpinnings of color variation. Banded and uniform morphs of the desert clicker grasshopper (Ligurotettix coquilletti) are found across...

Data from: Aridity drives coordinated trait shifts but not decreased trait variance across the geographic range of eight Australian trees

Leander Anderegg, Xingwen Loy, Ian Markham, Christina Elmer, Mark Hovenden, Janneke HilleRisLambers & Margaret Mayfield
Large intraspecific functional trait variation strongly impacts many aspects of communities and ecosystems, and is the medium upon which evolution works. Yet intraspecific trait variation is inconsistent and hard to predict across traits, species, and locations. We measured within-species variation in leaf mass per area (LMA), leaf dry matter content (LDMC), branch wood density (WD), and allocation to stem area vs. leaf area in branches (branch Huber value, HV) across the aridity range of seven...

Data for: Radiative feedbacks on land surface change and associated tropical precipitation shifts

Marysa Lague, William Boos & Abigail Swann
Changes in land surface albedo and land surface evaporation modulate the atmospheric energy budget by changing temperatures, water vapor, clouds, snow and ice cover, and the partitioning of surface energy fluxes. Here idealized perturbations to land surface properties are imposed in a global model to understand how such forcings drive shifts in zonal mean atmospheric energy transport and zonal mean tropical precipitation. For a uniform decrease in global land albedo, the albedo forcing and a...
