Persistent Identifiers in Cultural Heritage Collections

Persistent Identifiers help make collections available for the long term so they can be discovered, researched and cited. A range of experts describe how PIDs can help manage, research and digitise collections.

Data for Interannual variability in the source location of North African dust transported to the Amazon

Cassandra Gaston, A Pourmand, J Longman, A Sharifi, Joseph Prospero, K Panechou, N Bakker, N Drake, D Guioiseau & Anne Barkley
Here, we present the data and MixSIAR code that corresponds to the manuscript “Interannual variability in the source location of North African dust transported to the Amazon.” African dust is seasonally transported to the western Tropical Atlantic Ocean (TAO) and South America (SA), including the Amazon Basin. Leading hypotheses suggest that either the Western North African potential source area (PSA) or the Central North African PSA (e.g., Bodélé Depression) is the main source of dust...

Roundup causes high levels of mortality following contact exposure

Edward Straw, Edward Carpentier & Mark Brown
1. Pollinators underpin global food production, but they are suffering significant declines across the world. Pesticides are thought to be important drivers of these declines. Herbicides are the most widely applied type of pesticides and are broadly considered ‘bee safe’ by regulatory bodies who explicitly allow their application directly onto foraging bees. We aimed to test the mortality effects of spraying the world’s most popular herbicide brand (Roundup®) directly onto bumble bees (Bombus terrestris audax)....

Chinese historic perceptions of the South China Sea : Zheng He and his legacy

Mark Hoskin
From the moment the period that now bears his name in China’s history ended, Zheng He has been an enigma for politicians and historians alike. In the post Imperial period, Sun Yat-Sen referred to him as an example of China’s maritime past, technical ingenuity, and therefore an enduring symbol of national pride. For China’s Republican leader, reference to Zheng He in 1918 was a natural extension of his upbringing in Cuiheng, Guangdong, a village which...

Objective: To undertake a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify genetic variants for stroke in Indians. Methods: In a hospital-based case-control study, eight teaching hospitals in India recruited 4,088 subjects, including 1,609 stroke cases. Imputed genetic variants were tested for association with stroke subtypes using both single-marker and gene-based tests. Association with vascular risk factors was performed using logistic regression. Various databases were searched for replication, functional annotation, and association with related traits. Status of...
