RAMP data subset, January 1 through May 31, 2019

Jonathan Wheeler, Kenning Arlitsch, Minh Pham, Nikolaus Parulian, Patrick OBrien & Jeff Mixter
The data are a subset of data from RAMP, the Repository Analytics and Metrics Portal (http://ramp.montana.edu/), consisting of data from 35 (out of 50) participating institutional repositories (IR) from the period of January 1 through May 31, 2019. This subset represents data analyzed for a pending publication. For a description of the data collection, processing, and output methods, please see the "methods" section below. The 'RAMP Primer,' a Jupyter Notebook consisting of Python code for...

Data from: Land use change increases climatic vulnerability of migratory birds: insights from integrated population modelling

Qing Zhao, Todd W. Arnold, James H. Devries, David W. Howerter, Robert G. Clark & Mitch D. Weegman
1. Knowledge of land use patterns that could affect animal population resiliency or vulnerability to environmental threats such as climate change is essential, yet the interactive effects of land use and climate on demography across space and time can be difficult to study. This is particularly true for migratory species, which rely on different landscapes throughout the year. 2. Unlike most North American migratory waterfowl, populations of northern pintails (Anas acuta; hereafter pintails) have not...

Data from: Does body size predict the buzz-pollination frequencies used by bees?

Paul A De Luca, Stephen L Buchmann, Candace Galen, Andrew C Mason & Mario Vallejo-Marín
Body size is an important trait linking pollinators and plants. Morphological matching between pollinators and plants is thought to reinforce pollinator fidelity, as the correct fit ensures that both parties benefit from the interaction. We investigated the influence of body size in a specialized pollination system (buzz‐pollination) where bees vibrate flowers to release pollen concealed within poricidal stamens. Specifically, we explored how body size influences the frequency of buzz‐pollination vibrations. Body size is expected to...

Leaf vibrations produced by chewing provide a consistent acoustic target for plant recognition of herbivores

Reginald Cocroft & Alexis Kollasch
Plant defenses that respond to the threat of herbivory require accurate sensing of the presence of herbivores. Herbivory cues include mechanical damage, elicitors from insect saliva or eggs, and airborne volatiles emitted by wounded plants. Plants can also respond to the leaf vibrations produced by chewing herbivores. However, previous studies of the influence of feeding vibrations on plant defenses have been limited to single species pairs. In this study we test the hypothesis that chewing...

Data from: Human endometrial transcriptome and progesterone receptor cistrome reveal important pathways and epithelial regulators

Ru-Pin Alicia Chi, Tianyuan Wang, Nyssa Adams, San-Pin Wu, Steven Young, Thomas Spencer & Francesco DeMayo
Context. Poor uterine receptivity is one major factor leading to pregnancy loss and infertility. Understanding the molecular events governing successful implantation is hence critical in combating infertility. Objective. To define PGR-regulated molecular mechanisms and epithelial roles in receptivity. Design. RNA-seq and PGR-ChIP-seq were conducted in parallel to identify PGR-regulated pathways during the WOI in endometrium of fertile women. Setting. Endometrial biopsies from the proliferative and mid-secretory phases were analyzed. Patients or Other Participants. Participants were...

Data from: Telemedicine in neurology: telemedicine work group of the American Academy of Neurology update

Giesser, Lauren Moo, Pushpa Narayanaswami, Marvin A. Rossi, Madhu Soni, Nauman Tariq, Jack W. Tsao, Bert Vargas, Scott Vota, Scott Wessels, Hannah Planalp & Raghav Govindarajan
ABSTRACT Purpose: While there is strong evidence supporting the importance of telemedicine in stroke, its role in other areas of neurology is not as clear. The goal of this review is to provide an overview of evidence-based data regarding the role of teleneurology in the care of patients with neurologic disorders other than stroke. Recent findings: Studies across multiple specialties report noninferiority of evaluations by telemedicine compared with traditional, in-person evaluations in terms of patient...

Estimating survival for elusive juvenile pond‐breeding salamanders

Arianne Messerman, Raymond Semlitsch, Manuel Leal, Arianne F. Messerman & Raymond D. Semlitsch
Juvenile vital rates have important effects on population dynamics for many species, but this demographic is often difficult to locate and track. As such, we frequently lack reliable estimates of juvenile survival, which are necessary for accurately assessing population stability and potential management approaches to conserve biodiversity. We empirically estimated survival rates for elusive juveniles of 3 complex lifecycle species of salamanders (ringed salamander [Ambystoma annulatum], spotted slamander [A. maculatum], and small-mouthed slamander [A. texanum])...
