Changes in plant species richness due to land use and nitrogen deposition across the globe

Juan Gallego-Zamorano, Mark Huijbregts & Aafke Schipper
Data and scripts corresponding to the article "Combined effects of land use and nitrogen deposition on plant species richness worldwide". In the article, we quantified the combined effects of land use and nitrogen deposition on terrestrial plant species richness at a 0.25º spatial resolution across the globe. We first determined the proportional changes in plant species richness for different land-use types and N deposition values through meta-analyses of local monitoring data obtained from the literature....

The metabolic hormone adiponectin affects the correlation between nutritional status and pneumococcal vaccine response in vulnerable indigenous children

Kris E. Siegers, Antonius E. Van Herwaarden, Jacobus H. De Waard, Berenice Del Nogal, Peter W.M. Hermans, Doorlène Van Tienoven, Guy A.M. Berbers, Marien I. De Jonge & Lilly M. Verhagen
Background: Almost 200 million children worldwide are either undernourished or overweight. Only a few studies have addressed the effect of variation in nutritional status on vaccine response. We previously demonstrated an association between stunting and an increased post-vaccination 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) response. In this prospective study, we assessed to what extent metabolic hormones may be a modifier in the association between nutritional status and PCV13 response. Methods: Venezuelan children aged 6 weeks to...

Leading trait dimensions in flood-tolerant plants

Yingji Pan, Ellen Cieraad, Jean Armstrong, William Armstrong, Beverley Clarkson, Ole Pedersen, Eric Visser, Laurentius Voesenek & Peter Van Bodegom
Background and Aims While trait-based approaches have provided critical insights into general plant functioning, we lack a comprehensive quantitative view on plant strategies in flooded conditions. Plants adapted to flooded conditions have specific traits (e.g. root porosity, low root/shoot ratio and shoot elongation) to cope with the environmental stressors including anoxic sediments, and the subsequent presence of phytotoxic compounds. In flooded habitats, plants also respond to potential nutrient and light limitations, e.g. through the expression...

Integrated population model for the Mallard in the Netherlands

, Eelke Jongejans, Chris A. M. Van Turnhout, Loes Van Den Bremer, Henk Van Der Jeugd & Erik Kleyheeg
Europe’s highest densities of breeding Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) are found in the Netherlands, but the breeding population there has declined by ~30% since the 1990s. The exact cause of this decline has remained unclear. Here, we used an integrated population model to jointly analyze Mallard population survey, nest survey, duckling survival and band-recovery data. We used this approach to holistically estimate all relevant vital rates, including duckling survival rates for years for which no explicit...

RTX-KG2: a system for building a semantically standardized knowledge graph for translational biomedicine

E. C. Wood, Amy K. Glen, Lindsey G. Kvarfordt, Finn Womack, Liliana Acevedo, Timothy S. Yoon, Chunyu Ma, Veronica Flores, Meghamala Sinha, Yodsawalai Chodpathumwan, Arash Termehchy, Jared C. Roach, Luis Mendoza, Andrew S. Hoffman, Eric W. Deutsch, David Koslicki & Stephen A. Ramsey
Abstract Background Biomedical translational science is increasingly using computational reasoning on repositories of structured knowledge (such as UMLS, SemMedDB, ChEMBL, Reactome, DrugBank, and SMPDB in order to facilitate discovery of new therapeutic targets and modalities. The NCATS Biomedical Data Translator project is working to federate autonomous reasoning agents and knowledge providers within a distributed system for answering translational questions. Within that project and the broader field, there is a need for a framework that can...

Sod translocation to restore habitats of the myrmecophilous butterfly Phengaris (Maculinea) teleius on former agricultural fields

Cristina G. Sevilleja, Frank Van Langevelde, Juan Gallego-Zamorano, Chiara Bassignana & Irma Wynhoff
In Europe, 50-70% of former natural grassland area has been destroyed during the past 30 years due to land use changes, losses are expected to increase in the future. Restoration is thought to reverse this situation by creating suitable abiotic conditions. In this paper, we investigate the effects of sod translocation with specific vegetation to facilitate the restoration of a former intensive agricultural field into a wet meadow. First, starting conditions were optimized including modification...

Steering microbiomes by organic amendments towards climate-smart agricultural soils

Kristof Brenzinger, Ohana Y. A. Costa, Adrian Ho, Guusje Koorneef, Bjorn Robroek, Douwe Molenaar, Gerard Korthals & Paul L. E. Bodelier
We steered the soil microbiome via applications of organic residues (mix of cover crop residues, sewage sludge + compost, and digestate + compost) to enhance multiple ecosystem services in line with climate-smart agriculture. Our result highlights the potential to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions from agricultural soils by the application of specific organic amendments (especially digestate + compost). Unexpectedly, also the addition of mineral fertilizer in our mesocosms led to similar combined GHG emissions than...

Data from: Plant life history traits rather than soil legacies determine colonisation of soil patches in a multi-species grassland

, Nyncke J. Hoekstra, Hannie De Caluwe, Peter M. J. M. Cruijsen, Eric J. W. Visser & Hans De Kroon
Interactions between plants and soil biota are increasingly shown to play critical roles in plant species co-existence processes. Plant species co-existence is thought to be promoted via biotic legacies that plant species leave behind in the soil after a plant disappears. These soil legacies are hypothesised to supress colonisation success when the preceding plant is of the same species, that is, when a plant species encounters its own, species-specific soil antagonists. However, colonisation of vacant...
