Summary of influenza A subtypes in wild birds from GenBank and 50 studies

Wildlife Conservation Society & Sarah Olson
Wild aquatic birds are recognized as the natural reservoir of avian influenza A viruses (AIV), but across high and low pathogenic AIV strains, scientists have yet to rigorously identify most competent hosts for the various subtypes. We examined 11,870 GenBank records to provide a baseline inventory and insight into patterns of global AIV subtype diversity and richness. Further, we conducted an extensive literature review and communicated directly with scientists to accumulate data from 50 non-overlapping...

Interaction of soil fauna and plant litter composition on decomposition processes across the litter-soil interface

Yolima Carrillo & Becky Ball
Plant chemical composition and the soil community are known to influence litter and soil organic matter decomposition. Although these two factors are likely to interact, their mechanisms and outcomes of interaction are not well understood. Studies of their interactive effects are rare and usually focus on carbon dynamics of litter, while nutrient dynamics in the underlying soil have been ignored. Further, litter and soil are considered to constitute a decomposition continuum, but whether litter and...

Dieter Lukas & Alex Thornton
This file contains data collected as part of a study that is summarized in the following publication: "Individual variation in cognitive performance: developmental and evolutionary perspectives", by Alex Thornton & Dieter Lukas, published in Philosopohical Transactions of the Royal Society B 367: 2773-2783 (2012 http://rstb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/367/1603/2773.short The study was a meta-analysis investigating the factors that influence the performance of animals in cognitive testing. There are five separate datasets, all of which report data extracted from earlier...

Testing Amazon Transitional Forest Leaf Flammability: Combustion Experiment Temperature Readings (2013)

Amy Thissell & Jennifer Balch
Intensifying land use practices and global climate change are leading to increased forest fragmentation and more severe droughts in the southeastern transitional forests of the Brazilian Amazon. The combination of land use and droughts has increased fire frequency, intensity, and extent in the region. Various plant traits can either limit or promote flammability, as demonstrated in many seasonally dry environments (e.g. Mediterranean shrublands), which are home to species that are adapted to frequent fire. However,...

Vegetation Line Point Intercept Data, Owens Valley, CA USA 1984-2013

Zach Nelson
Each year, the Inyo County Water Department monitors vegetation conditions on the floor of the Owens Valley. The primary goal of this monitoring, according to the technical appendix to the Long-Term Water Agreement (Green Book) are to detect any “significant decreases and changes in Owens Valley vegetation from conditions documented in 1984 to 1987”. Vegetation live cover and species composition documented during the 1984-87 mapping effort were adopted as the baseline for comparison with each...

Long-term tree demography in old-growth forests of Huron Mts, MI from permanent-plot censuses, 1962-2009

Bennington College & Kerry Woods
Data set is repeated censuses of trees on nineteen 0.2-acre circular permanent plots in old-growth hemlock-northern hardwood forests in the Huron Mts. in northern Marquette Co., MI. Plots are located within a large private reserve, including about 4000 ha of never-logged, old-growth forest. Plots were first censused in 1962 and recensused in 1967 by Eric Bourdo (Michigan Technological University), with additional full censuses in 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 by Kerry D. Woods (Bennington College)....

Input data for: Patterns and variability of projected bioclimate habitat for Pinus albicaulis in the Greater Yellowstone Area

Montana State University & Tony Chang
Field observations of P. albicaulis adult (DBH>20cm) presences and absences within the Greater Yellowstone Area compiled from three data sources. 2,545 observations from the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program were assembled. FIA plots are located on a regular gridded sampling design with one plot at approximately every 2,500 forested hectares, with swapped and fuzzed exact plot locations within 1.6 km to protect privacy. To provide the most spatial accuracy, this study culled FIA field...

A mechanistic study of plant and microbial controls over R* for nitrogen in an annual grassland

USGS & Stephanie Yelenik
Differences in species’ abilities to capture resources can drive competitive hierarchies, successional dynamics, community diversity, and invasions. To investigate mechanisms of resource competition within a nitrogen (N) limited California grassland community, we established a manipulative experiment using an R* framework. R* theory holds that better competitors within a N limited community should better depress available N in monoculture plots and obtain higher abundance in mixture plots. We asked whether (1) plant uptake or (2) plant...

Long-term record of Hudson River water temperature

University Of Virginia & David Seekell
This data set contains monthly mean water temperatures for the Hudson River 1908-2007. The measurements were taken at Poughkeepsie NY. This is one of the longest river temperature data sets on record. The majority of the data are sourced from the Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Facility in Poughkeepsie NY. We averaged daily water temperature values to monthly values and added value by filling gaps within the Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Facility data set using USGS data. We...

STONE: Synthesis of Timings Observed in iNcrease Experiments

NCEAS 12574: Cook: Forecasting Phenology: Integrating Ecology, Climatology, And Phylogeny To Understand Plant Responses To Climate Change, National Center For Ecological Analysis And Synthesis & Elizabeth Wolkovich
The Synthesis of Timings Observed in iNcrease Experiments (STONE) database includes data from over 37 warming experiments focused explicitly on assessing phenological change with temperature increases. Only studies that gave data on phenological shifts and the temperature change were included. These data have been used in a study comparing experimental and observational results of temperature change (Wolkovich et al.) and in a study linking performance and a species' ability to track climate (Cleland et al.)....
