Data from: Trait‐based signatures of cloud base height in a tropical cloud forest

Catherine Hulshof, Bonnie G. Waring, Jennifer S. Powers & Susan P. Harrison
Clouds have profound consequences for ecosystem structure and function. Yet, the direct monitoring of clouds and their effects on biota is challenging especially in remote and topographically complex tropical cloud forests. We argue that known relationships between climate and the taxonomic and functional composition of plant communities may provide a fingerprint of cloud base height, thus providing a rapid and cost-effective assessment in remote tropical cloud forests. To detect cloud base height, we compared species...

Data from: Expansion of aromaticity magnetic criteria on multi-layer structures. Magnetic response and spherical aromaticity of Matryoshka-like [Sn@Cu12@Sn20]12- cluster

Alexander Boldyrev & Maksim Kulichenko
Structural characterization of the discrete [Sn@Cu12@Sn20]12− cluster exposed a fascinating architecture composed of three concentric structural layers in which an endohedral Sn atom is enclosed in a Cu12 icosahedron, which in turn is embedded in an Sn20 dodecahedron. Herein, the possibility of sustaining aromatic behavior for this prototypical multilayered species was evaluated, in order to extend this concept to more complex clusters on the basis of magnetic response and bonding analysis by the AdNDP approach....

Imperfect detection alters the outcome of management strategies for protected areas

Edd Hammill & Christopher Clement
Designing protected areas configurations to maximize biodiversity is a critical conservation goal. The configuration of protected areas can significantly impact the richness and identity of the species found there; one large patch supports larger populations but can facilitate competitive exclusion. Conversely, many small habitats spreads risk but may exclude predators that typically require large home ranges. Identifying how best to design protected areas is further complicated by monitoring programs failing to detect species. Here we...

Data for: Silica Induction of Diverse Inflammatory Proteome in Lungs of Lupus-prone Mice Quelled by Dietary Docosahexaenoic Acid Supplementation

James Pestka, Lichchavi Rajasinghe & Abby Benninghoff
Repeated short-term intranasal instillation of lupus-prone mice with to crystalline silica (cSiO2) induces inflammatory gene expression and ectopic lymphoid neogenesis in the lung, leading to early onset of systemic autoimmunity and rapid progression to glomerulonephritis. These responses are suppressed by dietary supplementation with the ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Here, we tested the hypothesis that dietary DHA supplementation suppresses cSiO2-induced inflammatory proteins in bronchoalveolar alveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and plasma of lupus-prone mice....

Data from: Resource exploitation collapses the home range of an apex predator

Melanie Dickie, Robert Serrouya, Avgar Tal, Philllip McLouglin, Scott McNay, Craig DeMars & Stan Boutin
Optimizing energy acquisition and expenditure is a fundamental trade-off for consumers, strikingly reflected in how mobile organisms use space. Several studies have established that home range size decreases as resource density increases, but the balance of costs and benefits associated with exploiting a given resource density is unclear. We evaluate how the ability of consumers to exploit their resources through movement (termed “resource exploitation”) interacts with resource density to influence home range size. We then...

Connections Impact on Student Persistence: Impact Report Spring 2015 to Fall 2018

Amanda M. Hagman, Heidi Kesler, Matt Sanders & Mitchell Colver
Connections is Utah State University's (USU) first-year seminary. A primary objective of Connections is student persistence. It is designed to help students become learners. While being a learner is not synonymous with being a college student, it aligns students’ expectations with what is required to succeed in college and at USU. This impact report explores the influence of Connections participation on student persistence to the next term. Participation in Connections is associated with a 1.4%...

Recolonizing carnivores: Is cougar predation behaviorally mediated by bears? Cougar Killsite Data

Julie Young, Jon Beckmann & Kristin Engebretsen
Conservation and management efforts have resulted in population increases and range expansions for some apex predators, potentially changing trophic cascades and predatory behavior. Changes in sympatric carnivore and dominant scavenger populations provide opportunities to assess how carnivores affect one another. Cougars (Puma concolor) were the apex predator in the Great Basin of Nevada, USA, for over 80 years. Black bears (Ursus americanus) have recently recolonized the Great Basin and are known to heavily scavenge on...

A population-genomic approach for estimating selection on polygenic traits in heterogeneous environments

Zachariah Gompert
Strong selection can cause rapid evolutionary change, but temporal fluctuations in the form, direction and intensity of selection can limit net evolutionary change over longer time periods. Fluctuating selection could affect molecular diversity levels and the evolution of plasticity and ecological specialization. Nonetheless, this phenomenon remains understudied, in part because of analytical limitations and the general difficulty of detecting selection that does not occur in a consistent manner. Herein, I fill this analytical gap by...

Energy pathways modulate the resilience of stream invertebrate communities to drought

Daniel Nelson, Michelle Busch, Darin Kopp & Daniel Allen
1. While climate change is altering ecosystems on a global scale, not all ecosystems are responding in the same way. The resilience of ecological communities may depend on whether food webs are producer- or detritus-based (i.e. “green” or “brown” food webs, respectively), or both (i.e. “multi-channel” food web). 2. Food web theory suggests that the presence of multiple energy pathways can enhance community stability and resilience and may modulate the responses of ecological communities to...

Data for Farmland Preservation Study

Arthur J. Caplan & Brent C. Chamberlain
This study fills a gap in cultural ecosystem service (CES) assessment of prime farmland located in peri-urban areas by presenting results from a choice experiment recently conducted in Utah’s Wasatch Front region. The choice experiment was designed to account for heterogeneous effects associated with a wide array of socio-demographic and attitudinal characteristics on household preferences for farmland preservation, including farmland used for the joint production of solar power and agricultural products. We apply a mixed-logit...

Standard Non-Uniform Noise Dataset

Andres Imperial & John Edwards
Fixed Pattern Noise Non-Uniformity Correction through K-Means Clustering Fixed pattern noise removal from imagery by software correction is a practical approach compared to a physical hardware correction because it allows for correction post-capture of the imagery. Fixed pattern noise presents a unique challenge for de-noising techniques as the noise does not present itself where large number statistics are effective. Traditional noise removal techniques such as blurring or despeckling produce poor correction results because of a...

The genus Jethsura Cameron is revised. Jethsura euthenia sp. nov., Jethsura gondawindua sp. nov., and Jethsura serpentina sp. nov. are newly described from Colombia, and Jethsura rubricauda sp. nov. is described from Mexico. Jethsura pyriformis (Provancher) from the Nearctic region is redescribed. Species images, distribution maps and an illustrated key is provided.
