TCCON data from Bremen (DE), Release GGG2020.R0

J. Notholt, C. Petri, T. Warneke & M. Buschmann
The Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) is a network of ground-based Fourier Transform Spectrometers that record direct solar absorption spectra of the atmosphere in the near-infrared. From these spectra, accurate and precise column-averaged abundances of atmospheric constituents including CO2, CH4, N2O, HF, CO, H2O, and HDO, are retrieved. This is the GGG2020 data release of observations from the TCCON station at Bremen, Germany

A test for plasticity in sperm motility activation

Phillip Byrne, Zara Anastas & Aimee Silla
Evolutionary theory predicts that selection will favour phenotypic plasticity in sperm traits that maximise fertilisation success in dynamic fertilisation environments. In species with external fertilisation, osmolality of the fertilisation medium is known to play a critical role in activating sperm motility, but evidence for osmotic-induced sperm plasticity is limited to euryhaline fish and marine invertebrates. Whether this capacity extends to freshwater taxa remains unknown. Here, we provide the first test for plasticity in sperm-motility activation...

Data from: Neuropeptide signalling shapes feeding and reproductive behaviours in male C. elegans

Matthew Gadenne, Iris Hardege, Eviatar Yemini, Djordji Suleski, Paris Jaggers, Isabel Beets, William Schafer & Yee Lian Chew
Sexual dimorphism occurs where different sexes of the same species display differences in characteristics not limited to reproduction. For the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, in which the complete neuroanatomy has been solved for both hermaphrodites and males, sexually dimorphic features have been observed both in terms of the number of neurons and in synaptic connectivity. In addition, male behaviours, such as food-leaving to prioritise searching for mates, have been attributed to neuropeptides released from sex-shared or...

Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS-attributed mortalities and associated sociodemographic factors in Papua New Guinea: Evidence from the comprehensive health and epidemiological surveillance system

Bang Nguyen PHAM, Nora Abori, Vinson D. Silas, Ronny Jorry, Chalapati Rao, Anthony D. Okely & William Pomat
Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV/AIDS are public health concerns in Papua New Guinea (PNG). This study examines TB and HIV/AIDS mortalities and associated sociodemographic factors in PNG. Method: As part of a longitudinal study, verbal autopsy (VA) interviews were conducted using the WHO 2016 VA Instrument to collect data of 926 deaths occurred in the communities within the catchment areas of the Comprehensive Health and Epidemiological Surveillance System from 2018-2020. InterVA-5 cause of deaths analytic tool...

Data and code for: No evidence of metabolic costs following adaptive immune activation or reactivation in house sparrows

Bethany Hoye, William Buttemer, Terance O'Dwyer, Lee Astheimer & Kirk Klasing
We examined the energetic costs of immune activation by measuring both basal (BMR) and exercise-induced maximal metabolic rates (MMR) in house sparrows before and after being injected with either saline (sham) or two novel antigens (keyhole limpet haemocyanin and sheep red blood cells; KLH and SRBC, respectively) after the primary and two subsequent vaccinations. We also examined the effect of experimentally-induced breeding levels of testosterone (T) on immune responses and their metabolic costs in both...

MOF-derived multi-interface carbon-based composites with enhanced polarization loss and efficient microwave absorption

Hongjiao Qu, Peng Zheng, Tao Wang, Xingyu Yu, Junjie Pan, Xiaoli Fan, Tengfei Zhang, Xin Sun & Jianping He
Metal-organic framework materials (MOFs) have been widely studied because of their adjustable composition and controllable structure in the field of microwave absorption (MA). Therein, Prussian blue analogs (PBA) have attracted the attention of researchers with ultra-high metal content. However, the attenuation ability of microwave for PBA-based composites is still unsatisfactory up to now. Therefore, the NiFe/CoFe@C composites were prepared by carbonizing polymetallic PBA (NiCoFe PBA) materials in this work, and the influence of different metal...

Field survey quadrat data - Exotic perennial grass invasion profiles differ between temperate threatened grassy communities

Julia Rayment, Kris French & Michael Bedward
Aim: Exotic perennial grasses are significant invaders of native grassy communities and frequently multiple species invade communities, some from nearby agricultural areas. There is little understanding of the landscape distribution of many species, making prioritisation for control a difficult decision. Location: New South Wales, Eastern Australia Methods: We undertook field surveys of exotic perennial grasses at 139 sites from nine grassy threatened ecological communities across four regions and assessed whether the profiles of exotic species...
