Tree trait, insect herbivore abundance and powdery mildew infection data (2018) from a tree diversity experiment in south-west FranceE. Field, B. Castagneyrol, M. Gibbs, H. Jactel, N. Barsoum, K. Schonrogge & A. Hector
This data set consists of data collected from one field season (2018) from the ORPHEE tree diversity experiment run by INRA Bordeaux in SW France. Data was collected on tree traits (tree height, shoot length), abundance of leaf miners, damage by leaf chewers, and leaf damage by oak powdery mildew, a foliar fungal pathogen. Data was collected from plots differing in tree species richness and drought treatment.
LeWoS: A universal leaf‐wood classification method to facilitate the 3D modelling of large tropical trees using terrestrial LiDARDi Wang, Stéphane Momo Takoudjou & Eric Casella
1. Leaf-wood separation in terrestrial LiDAR data is a prerequisite for non-destructively estimating biophysical forest properties such as standing wood volumes and leaf area distributions. Current methods have not been extensively applied and tested on tropical trees. Moreover, their impacts on the accuracy of subsequent wood volume retrieval were rarely explored. 2. We present LeWoS, a new fully automatic tool to automate the separation of leaf and wood components, based only on geometric information at...
Road vehicle collisions are likely to be an important contributory factor in the decline of the European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) in Britain. Here, a collaborative roadkill dataset collected from multiple projects across Britain was used to assess when, where and why hedgehog roadkill are more likely to occur. Seasonal trends were assessed using a Generalized Additive Model (GAM). There were few casualties in winter — the hibernation season for hedgehogs — with a gradual increase...
Tree trait, insect herbivore abundance and powdery mildew infection data (2016-17) from Forest Research Climate Matching Trials, UKE Field, K Schonrogge, N Barsoum, A Hector & M Gibbs
This data set comprises two years of data (2016 and 2017) from one trial (Hucking, Kent, UK) and one year (2017) from a second trial (Hartshorne, Derbyshire, UK). Data was collected on tree traits (tree height, shoot length, tree provenance), abundance of foliar insect herbivores (gallers, leaf manipulators and leaf miners) and leaf damage by oak powdery mildew, a foliar fungal pathogen. Data was collected from plots differing in tree diversity (provenance and species diversity).
Data from: Mitotic recombination and rapid genome evolution in the invasive forest pathogen Phytophthora ramorummAngela L. Dale, Nicolas Feau, Sydney E.

Invasive alien species often have reduced genetic diversity and must adapt to new environments. Given the success of many invasions, this is sometimes called the genetic paradox of invasion. Phytophthora ramorum is invasive, limited to asexual reproduction within four lineages, and presumed clonal. NA1 is responsible for sudden oak death in the USA, NA1, NA2 and EU1 are responsible for ramorum blight in the USA and Canada and EU1 and EU2 are responsible for sudden...
