1. Although organic farming was originally promoted as an alternative farming system to address agronomic, environmental, and ecological issues, its conventionalisation has led to an intensification and specialisation of production. In light of this, several studies have questioned the environmental benefits of organic farming as well as its agronomic viability. Thus, there is a need to improve organic vegetable systems to reduce their environmental impact without affecting their productivity. To tackle this challenge, European farmers...

Data from: Robust clustering of languages across Wikipedia growth

Kristina Ban, Matjaž Perc & Zoran Levnajić
Wikipedia is the largest existing knowledge repository that is growing on a genuine crowdsourcing support. While the English Wikipedia is the most extensive and the most researched one with over 5 million articles, comparatively little is known about the behaviour and growth of the remaining 283 smaller Wikipedias, the smallest of which, Afar, has only one article. Here, we use a subset of these data, consisting of 14 962 different articles, each of which exists...

Data from: Aspiration-based coevolution of link weights promotes cooperation in the spatial prisoner's dilemma game

Chen Shen, Chen Chu, Lei Shi, Matjaz Perc & Zhen Wang
In this article, we propose an aspiration-based coevolution of link weights, and we explore how this affects the evolution of cooperation in the spatial prisoner's dilemma game. In particular, an individual will increase the weight of its link to its neighbors only if the payoff received via this interaction will exceed a pre-defined aspiration. Conversely, if the received payoff is below this aspiration, the link weight with the corresponding neighbor will be decreased. Our simulation...

Aufklärungsdiskurse in der deutschsprachigen Regionalpresse Zentraleuropas, 1800-1920

Thomas Nicklas & Matjaz Birk
The contributions brought together in this volume deal with German-language newspapers in Central Europe in the "long 19th century" from the perspective of the continuing influence of Enlightenment ideas in the regional press of the Habsburg Monarchy. Outstanding experts analyse the transfer of Enlightenment concepts in the Central European press. At the same time, the question is raised as to whether these regions had their own ideas of Enlightenment. The essays contained here in German...

Data from: Early spread of COVID-19 in Romania

Marian-Gabriel Hancean, Matjaz Perc & Juergen Lerner
This individual-level dataset describes (a) the early spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and (b) the first human-to-human transmission networks, in Romania. Specifically, in the first set of data (a), we profile the first 147 cases referring to: whether an individual is an index case, place of residence, sex, age, probable citizenship, probable country and place of infection, arrival date to a Romanian county, COVID-19 confirmation date as well as the sources of information. Also,...

Data from: Modelling of dysregulated glucagon secretion in type 2 diabetes by considering mitochondrial alterations in pancreatic alpha cells

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been associated with insulin resistance and the failure of β-cells to produce and secrete enough insulin as the disease progresses. However, clinical treatments based solely on insulin secretion and action have had limited success. The focus is therefore shifting towards α-cells, in particular to the dysregulated secretion of glucagon. Our qualitative electron-microscopy-based observations gave an indication that mitochondria in α-cells are altered in Western-diet-induced T2DM. In particular, α-cells extracted...

Efficiency of antlion trap design and larval behavior in capture success

Vesna Klokocovnik & Dušan Devetak
Traps constructed by an animal reduce the amount of energy required to seek prey. The main risk of trap-building predators is the greater uncertainty of encountering prey, owing to their immobility. Sometimes environmental characteristics do not allow them to build efficient traps, resulting in lower capture success. We observed prey escape, capture success, and behavior of two antlion species, Cueta lineosa, a habitat specialist, and Myrmeleon hyalinus, a generalist, building geometrically different traps. The traps...
