Data from: Quantifying dispersal of a non-aggressive saprophytic bark beetle

Nicolas Meurisse & Stephen Pawson
We performed a mark-recapture experiment to examine patterns of adult dispersal in Hylurgus ligniperda (F.) (Coleoptera: Scolytinae), a non-aggressive, saprophytic bark beetle. The experiment took place in a clearcut pine, Pinus radiata D. Don forest in the central North Island, New Zealand, during February to May 2014. Both flight-naïve and flight-experienced H. ligniperda were released in the center of a circular trap grid that extended to 960 m with 170 or 200 panel traps baited...

Data from: Predicting forest insect flight activity: a Bayesian network approach

Stephen M. Pawson, Owen G. Woodberry & Bruce G. Marcot
Daily flight activity patterns of forest insects are influenced by temporal and meteorological conditions. Temperature and time of day are frequently cited as key drivers of activity; however, complex interactions between multiple contributing factors have also been proposed. Here, we report individual Bayesian network models to assess the probability of flight activity of three exotic insects, Hylurgus ligniperda, Hylastes ater, and Arhopalus ferus in a managed plantation forest context. Models were built from 7,144 individual...

Data from: Exploration of genetic architecture through sib-ship reconstruction in advanced breeding population of Eucalyptus nitens

Jaroslav Klápště, Mari Suontama, Emily Telfer, Natalie Graham, Charlie Low, Toby Stovold, Russel McKinley & Heidi Dungey
Accurate inference of relatedness between individuals in breeding population contributes to the precision of genetic parameter estimates, effectiveness of inbreeding management and the amount of genetic progress delivered from breeding programs. Pedigree reconstruction has been proven to be an efficient tool to correct pedigree errors and recover hidden relatedness in open pollinated progeny tests but the method can be limited by the lack of parental genotypes and the high proportion of alien pollen from outside...

Data from: Depletion of heterogeneous source species pools predicts future invasion rates

Andrew M. Liebhold, Eckehard G. Brockerhoff & Mark Kimberley
Predicting how increasing rates of global trade will result in new establishments of potentially damaging invasive species is a question of critical importance to the development of national and international policies aimed at minimizing future invasions. Centuries of historical movement and establishment of invading species may have depleted the supply of species available for future invasions, and it has been suggested that the problem of invasions will diminish as a result of this. However, the...

Data from: Improvement of non-key traits in radiata pine breeding programme when long-term economic importance is uncertain

Yongjun Li, Heidi Dungey, Alvin Yanchuk & Luis A. Apiolaza
Diameter at breast height (DBH), wood density (DEN) and predicted modulus of elasticity (PME) are considered as ‘key traits’ (KT) in the improvement in radiata pine breeding programmes in New Zealand. Any other traits which are also of interest to radiata pine breeders and forest growers are called ‘non-key traits’ (NKTs). External resin bleeding (ERB), internal checking (IC), number of heartwood rings (NHR) are three such non-key traits which affect wood quality of radiata pine...
