Data from: Parasite infection and decreased thermal tolerance: impact of proliferative kidney disease (PKD) on a wild salmonid fish in the context of climate change

Matthieu Bruneaux, Marko Visse, Riho Gross, Lilian Pukk, Lauri Saks & Anti Vasemägi
Parasites and pathogens can have an important effect on their host's thermal resistance. The impact of parasite infection on host physiological performances has traditionally been studied in controlled laboratory conditions, and much less is known about its actual effects in wild populations. Nonetheless, such knowledge is critical when assessing the effect of climate change on the future survival of the host. Tetracapsuloides bryosalmonae is a myxozoan endoparasite causing proliferative kidney disease (PKD) in salmonids. Infection...

Data from: Global effects of soil and climate on leaf photosynthetic traits and rates

Aim: The influence of soil properties on photosynthetic traits in higher plants is poorly quantified in comparison with that of climate. We address this situation by quantifying the unique and joint contributions to global leaf-trait variation from soils and climate. Location: Terrestrial ecosystems world-wide. Methods: Using a trait dataset comprising 1509 species from 288 sites, with climate and soil data derived from global datasets, we quantified the effects of 20 soil and 26 climate variables...

Data from: Population genomic analyses of early phase Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) domestication/captive breeding.

Hannu Mäkinen, Anti Vasemägi, Philip McGinnity, Tom F. Cross, Craig Primmer & Craig R. Primmer
Domestication can have adverse genetic consequences, which may reduce the fitness of individuals once released back into the wild. Many wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) populations are threatened by anthropogenic influences and they are supplemented with captively bred fish. The Atlantic salmon is also widely used in selective breeding programs to increase the mean trait values for desired phenotypic traits. We analyzed a genome-wide set of SNPs in three domesticated Atlantic salmon strains and...

Data from: Male mealworm beetles increase resting metabolic rate under terminal investment

Harmful parasite infestation can cause energetically costly behavioural and immunological responses, with the potential to reduce host fitness and survival. It has been hypothesized that the energetic costs of infection cause resting metabolic rate (RMR) to increase. Furthermore, under terminal investment theory, individuals exposed to pathogens should allocate resources to current reproduction when life expectancy is reduced, instead of concentrating resources on an immune defence. In this study, we activated the immune system of Tenebrio...

Supplementary table for Henno et al. in the Journal of Dairy Science with the title Effect of monensin on milk fatty acid profile in dairy cows and on the use of fatty acids for early diagnosis of elevated blood plasma concentrations of nonesterified fatty acids and hyperketonemia

Merike Henno, Katri Ling, Tanel Kaart, Tiia Ariko, Priit Karis, Hanno Jaakson, Sirje Kuusik & Meelis Ots
The use of monensin to reduce health disorders associated with negative energy balance in transition cows is widely used. Precalving continuous-release monensin capsule administration affected postcalving milk FA profile indicating alterations in the rumen microbiota of these cows.

Research into the parameters of a potato harvester's potato heap distributor, and the justification of those parameters

Jüri Olt, Valerii Adamchuk, Viktor Korniushyn, Viktor Melnik, Hryhoriy Kaletnik, Yevhen Ihnatiev & Risto Ilves
The low levels of efficiency and general quality when it comes to the use of potato harvesters in difficult soil and climatic conditions substantiate the relevance of the problem which is faced in terms of research by technologically advanced equipment and tools. They are looking to increase the efficiency of potato harvesters. This paper serves to justify the formation of the design and technical parameters of the V-type distributor, which directly acts on the undermined...

List of medicinal plant species in the semi-natural Miscanthus sinensis grasslands in Nagano and Yamanashi Prefectures, Japan

Indrek Melts
The dataset collected from the typical and the most representative type of semi-natural grasslands in Satoyama landscape in Honshu island, Japan. Twelve grasslands were located on the Kaida Plateau between 1000–1300 m a.s.l. in Nagano Prefecture (approximate geographical coordinate of the study area: 35.931555N, 137.604300E) and six grasslands were located on the north-eastern foot of Mt. Fuji between 1000–1300 m a.s.l. in Yamanashi Prefecture (approximate geographical coordinate of the study area: 35.431819N, 138.812522E). The study sites...

Maakasutuse, maakasutuse muutuse ja metsanduse sektori sidumisvõimekuse analüüs kuni aastani 2050

Mati Valgepea, Madis Raudsaar, Helen Karu, Eve Suursild, Enn Pärt, Allan Sims, Karin Kauer, Alar Astover, Martti Maasik, Airiin Vaasa & Paavo Kaimre
Kliimaneutraalsuse saavutamiseks 2050. aastaks on oluline kasvuhoonegaaside (KHG) heitkoguste vähendamine ja sidumisvõimekuse suurendamine kõigis sektorites. Et eesmärki täita, tuleb seada selged sihid, hinnates erinevates sektorites KHG heite vähendamise ja sidumise suurendamise potentsiaali ning käsitleda sektori mõju laiemalt ka majanduse konkurentsivõimele. Maakasutuse, maakasutuse muutuse ja metsanduse (LULUCF) sidumisvõimekuse uuring on valminud Keskkonnaministeeriumi tellimusel analüüsimaks kompleksselt LULUCFi sektori KHG sidumisvõimaluste potentsiaali ja ulatust 2030. ja 2050. aasta kliimapoliitika eesmärkide täitmiseks arvestades sealjuures ka pikemaajalist perspektiivi (kuni 2100....
