Data from: Undergraduate research experiences broaden diversity in the scientific workforce

Paul R. Hernandez, Anna Woodcock, Mica Estrada & P. Wesley Schultz
New data highlight the importance of undergraduate research experiences (UREs) for keeping underrepresented science students on the pathway to a scientific career. We used a large-scale, 10-year longitudinal, multi-institutional, propensity score matched research design to compare the academic performance and persistence in science of students that participated in URE(s) compared to similar students that had no research experience. Results showed that students who completed 10-or-more hours of co-curricular faculty mentored research per week across two...

Data from: Centennial-scale reductions in nitrogen availability in temperate forests of the United States

Forests cover 30% of the terrestrial Earth surface and are a major component of the global carbon (C) cycle. Humans have doubled the amount of global reactive nitrogen (N), increasing deposition of N onto forests worldwide. However, other global changes—especially climate change and elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations—are increasing demand for N, the element limiting primary productivity in temperate forests, which could be reducing N availability. To determine the long-term, integrated effects of global changes...
