First large-scale quantification study of DNA preservation in insects from natural history collections using genome-wide sequencing

Insect declines are a global issue with significant ecological and economic ramifications. Yet we have a poor understanding of the genomic impact these losses can have. Genome-wide data from historical specimens has the potential to provide baselines of population genetic measures to study population change, with natural history collections representing large repositories of such specimens. However, an initial challenge in conducting historical DNA data analyses, is to understand how molecular preservation varies between specimens. Here,...

Latitudinal influences on bryozoan calcification through the Paleozoic

Catherine Reid, Patrick N Wyse Jackson &
Bryozoans are active non-phototrophic biomineralizers that precipitate their calcareous skeletons in sea-water. Carbonate saturation states vary temporally and spatially in Paleozoic oceans, and we used the Bryozoan Skeletal Index (BSI) to investigate whether bryozoan calcification is controlled by seawater chemistry in Paleozoic trepostome and cryptostome bryozoans. Our results show that cryptostome bryozoan genera are influenced by ocean chemistry throughout the Paleozoic and precipitate the most calcite per autozooid at lower latitudes, where carbonate saturation states...

Human Factors & Ethics Canvas (Responsible AI & Addressing The Triple Bottom Line)

Joan Cahill
Assessing the ethical implications of things which may not yet exist, or things which may have impacts we cannot predict, is very difficult. However, this should not be barrier to posing important questions and ensuring that these questions are addressed as part of the design process. Thinking about both potential positive, negative consequences and unintended consequences enables designers to build in protections into the design concept. Overall, it is argued that the specification of an...

Barry, Frank: Database on Irish Industrial History

Frank Barry
The book 'Industry and Policy in Independent Ireland, 1922-1972' identifies the leading manufacturing firms, indigenous and foreign, that were engaged in production in the Irish Free State/Ireland at any stage over the 50-year period from independence to EEC accession. This spreadsheet provides information on the sources from which the firm-level employment numbers cited in the text are drawn.

Abstract Background Recent evidence highlights the epidemiological value of blood DNA methylation (DNAm) as surrogate biomarker for exposure to risk factors for non-communicable diseases (NCD). DNAm surrogate of exposures predicts diseases and longevity better than self-reported or measured exposures in many cases. Consequently, disease prediction models based on blood DNAm surrogates may outperform current state-of-the-art prediction models. This study aims to develop novel DNAm surrogates for cardiovascular diseases (CVD) risk factors and develop a composite...

Abstract Background The Symptom Checklist (SCL) developed by the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study is a non-clinical measure of psychosomatic complaints (e.g., headache and feeling low) that has been used in numerous studies. Several studies have investigated the psychometric characteristics of this scale; however, some psychometric properties remain unclear, among them especially a) dimensionality, b) adequacy of the Graded Response Model (GRM), and c) measurement invariance across countries. Methods Data from 229,906 adolescents...

Leaf flammbility and volatiles of Ginkgo, Agathis, and Dicksonia

Rebecca Dewhirst, Sarah Baker, Jennifer McElwain, Matthew Haworth & Claire Belcher
The Triassic-Jurassic Boundary marks the third largest mass extinction event in the Phanerozoic, characterised by a rise in CO2-concentrations from ~600 ppm to ~2100 – 2400ppm, coupled with a ~3.0 – 4.0°C temperature rise. This is hypothesized to have induced major floral turnover, altering vegetation structure, composition and leaf morphology, which in turn are hypothesized to have driven changes in wildfire. However, the effects of elevated CO2 on fuel properties, such as chemical composition of...

Data from: Bumblebees can be exposed to the herbicide glyphosate whilst foraging

Linzi Jay Thompson, Stephen Smith, Jane Stout, Blánaid White, Elena Zioga & Dara Stanley
Bee declines are attributed to multiple factors, one of which is the use of pesticides. However, there is very little research surround the effects of non-insecticidal pesticides on bees. Herbicides are one of the most applied pesticide groups globally, with glyphosate being one of the most applied pesticides in the world. When herbicides are applied to plants, the plant typically dies a few days later. In the period between herbicide application and plant death it...
