Fragmentary Sequences for Variable-Sized RNAsim Datasets

Tandy Warnow & Eleanor Wedell
Thank you for using these datasets. These RNAsim aligned fragmentary sequences were generated from the query sequences selected by Balaban et al. (2019) in their variable-size datasets (https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.78nf7dq). They were created for use for phylogenetic placement with the multiple sequence alignments and backbone trees provided by Balaban et al. (2019). The file structures included here also correspond with the data Balaban et al. (2020) provided. This includes: Directories for five varying backbone tree sizes, shown...

Cline Center Coup D’état Project Dataset

Buddy Peyton, Joseph Bajjalieh, Dan Shalmon, Michael Martin & Jonathan Bonaguro
Coups d'état are important events in the life of a country. They constitute an important subset of irregular transfers of political power that can have significant and enduring consequences for national well-being. There are only a limited number of datasets available to study these events (Powell and Thyne 2011, Marshall and Marshall 2019). Seeking to facilitate research on post-WWII coups by compiling a more comprehensive list and categorization of these events, the Cline Center for...

Effects of salt marsh vegetation zonation on carbon and nitrogen cycling in Connecticut

Beth Lawrence, Ashley Helton, Chris Elphick, Aidan Barry & Sean Ooi
Coastal marshes fringing the Long Island Sound (Connecticut, USA) are dynamic ecosystems positioned at the interface between land and sea, and provide an array of essential ecosystem services to society associated with improved water quality, carbon sequestration, and disturbance regulation. However, these wetlands are increasingly altered by rising seas and invasive species, and have been affected by historical management such as tidal manipulation. We conducted a survey of 20 Connecticut salt marshes (10 tidally restored,...

Performance and refinement of nitrogen fertilization tools

Curtis Ransom, Jason Clark, Gregory Bean, Christopher Bandura, Matthew Shafer, Newell Kitchen, James Camberato, Paul Carter, Richard Ferguson, Fabián Fernández, David Franzen, Carrie Laboski, David Myers, Emerson Nafziger & John Sawyer
Improving corn (Zea mays L.) N management is pertinent to economic and environmental objectives. However, there are limited comprehensive data sources to develop and test N fertilizer decision aid tools across a wide geographic range of soil and weather scenarios. Therefore, a public-industry partnership was formed to conduct standardized corn N rate response field studies throughout the U.S. Midwest. This research was conducted using a standardized protocol at 49 site-years across eight states over the...

Pathotype complexity and genetic characterization of Phytophthora sojae populations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio

Linda Hebb, Carl A. Bradley, Santiago Xavier Mideros, Darcy E. P. Telenko, Kiersten Wise & Anne Elizabeth Dorrance
Phytophthora sojae, the causal agent of Phytophthora root and stem rot of soybean, has been managed with single Rps genes since the 1960’s, but has subsequently adapted to many of these resistance genes, rendering them ineffective. The objective of this study was to examine the pathotype and genetic diversity of P. sojae from soil samples across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio by assessing which Rps gene(s) were still effective and identifying possible population clusters. There...

Data for Integrating CyberGIS and Urban Sensing for Reproducible Streaming Analytics

Shaowen Wang, Fangzheng Lyu, Shaohua Wang, Charles Catlet, Anand Padmanabhan & Kiumars Soltani
Increasingly pervasive location-aware sensors interconnected with rapidly advancing wireless network services are motivating the development of near-real-time urban analytics. This development has revealed both tremendous challenges and opportunities for scientific innovation and discovery. However, state-of-the-art urban discovery and innovation are not well equipped to resolve the challenges of such analytics, which in turn limits new research questions from being asked and answered. Specifically, commonly used urban analytics capabilities are typically designed to handle, process, and...

Data for Poison Frogs in U.S. Collections

Devin Edmonds
The dataset shows all poison frogs (superfamily Dendrobatoidea) in private U.S. collections during 1990–2020. For each species and color morph, there is a date of arrival, the way it arrived in U.S. collections, and detailed notes related to its presence in the pet trade. A second sheet details 10 wildlife trade pathways identified for poison frogs. The data can be used to examine the amphibian pet trade.

Data from: Sex-specific contributions to nest building in birds

Mark Mainwaring, Jenó Nagy & Mark Hauber
The causes and consequences of interspecific variation in sex-specific contributions to animal parental care are relatively well understood during pregnancy or incubation and during offspring provisioning, but comparative patterns of sex-biased investment during nest-, den-, or other shelter-building have been almost completely overlooked. This is surprising because birthing shelter properties have important fitness consequences for both parents and offspring. Here, we address this gap in our knowledge by testing predictions concerning sex-specific contributions to avian...

Maize tassel detection from UAV imagery using deep learning

Yeyin Shi, Aziza Alzadjali, Mohammed Alali, Arun-Narenthiran Veeranampalayam-Sivakumar, Jitender Deogun, Stephen Scott & James Schnable
Dataset associated with paper titled "Maize Tassel Detection from UAV Imagery Using Deep Learning" published on the journal of Frontiers in Robotics and AI (DOI: 10.3389/frobt.2021.600410). The timing of flowering plays a critical role in determining the productivity of agricultural crops. If the crops flower too early, the crop would mature before the end of the growing season, losing the opportunity to capture and use large amounts of light energy. If the crops flower too...

The dataset contains estimates of fledgling activity rates during the daytime, nighttime, and across the post-fledging period, which were compared to estimates of fledgling morphologies (e.g. mass, tarsus,...

Avian plumage and eggshell colouration covary with sex-specific contributions to nest building

Jenő Nagy, Mark E. Hauber & Mark C. Mainwaring
Interspecific variation in sex-specific contributions to nest building remain poorly understood. We examine whether the colouration of parents and of eggs influences sex-specific nest building contributions in 521 species of Western Palearctic birds. Having colourful plumage and laying colourful eggs are costly because of the deposition of pigments (in feathers and eggs) and/or forming costly nanostructural substrates (of feathers). We tested the hypotheses that species in which females alone build nests (i) exhibit sexual plumage...

Disentangling lousy relationships: Comparative phylogenomics of two sucking louse lineages parasitizing chipmunks

Kayce Bell, Julie M. Allen, Kevin P. Johnson, John R. Demboski & Joseph A. Cook
The evolution of obligate parasites is often interpreted in light of their hosts’ evolutionary history. An expanded approach is to examine the histories of multiple lineages of parasites that inhabit similar environments on a particular host lineage. Western North American chipmunks (genus Tamias) have a broad distribution, a history of divergence with gene flow, and host two species of sucking lice (Anoplura), Hoplopleura arboricola and Neohaematopinus pacificus. From total genomic sequencing, we obtained sequences of...

ORCIDs mapped to PubMed authors

Vetle Torvik
The dataset is based on a snapshot of PubMed taken in December 2018 (NLMs baseline 2018 plus updates throughout 2018), and for ORCIDs, primarily, the 2019 ORCID Public Data File https://orcid.org/. Matching an ORCID to an individual author name on a PMID is a non-trivial process. Anyone can create an ORCID and claim to have contributed to any published work. Many records claim too many articles and most claim too few. Even though ORCID records...
