Acoustic recordings and corresponding mammal, bird, human activity, vegetation, and climate data from a tropical forest landscape

Johan Diepstraten, Jacques Kuemo Kuenbou & Jacob Willie
Obtaining and analysing sound data can be a tedious and lengthy process. We present sound data consisting of 38,065 1-minute sound recordings obtained in three sites within a rainforest landscape in southeast Cameroon. The sites differ in anthropogenic disturbance. We also present meta data corresponding to 20,485 of these recordings with the identification of all animal vocalisations in each 1-minute sound recording. Additionally, we provide a raw database with data on habitat, human activities, remoteness,...

Leading trait dimensions in flood-tolerant plants

Yingji Pan, Ellen Cieraad, Jean Armstrong, William Armstrong, Beverley Clarkson, Ole Pedersen, Eric Visser, Laurentius Voesenek & Peter Van Bodegom
Background and Aims While trait-based approaches have provided critical insights into general plant functioning, we lack a comprehensive quantitative view on plant strategies in flooded conditions. Plants adapted to flooded conditions have specific traits (e.g. root porosity, low root/shoot ratio and shoot elongation) to cope with the environmental stressors including anoxic sediments, and the subsequent presence of phytotoxic compounds. In flooded habitats, plants also respond to potential nutrient and light limitations, e.g. through the expression...

The EXCITE-network: providing access to leading-edge electron and X-ray microscopy facilities for geo-materials research

Oliver Plümper , Veerl Cnudde , Geertje ter Maat , Sylvia Walter , Richard Wessels & the EXCITE network
Understanding earth materials is critical to creating a sustainable, carbon-neutral society due to their involvement in many vital processes. Earth materials control the feasibility of subsurface energy storage, geothermal energy extraction, and are a source of critical elements. However, perturbations to geological systems can also result in hazards, such as human-induced earthquakes. If we want to tackle current, pressing scientific questions related to sustainable development for a circular economy, there is an urgent need to...

The shape of aroma: X-ray CT scans of citrus fruits, their separate tissues, and their individual oil glands

Erik Amezquita, Michelle Quigley, Tim Ophelders, Danelle Seymour, Elizabeth Munch & Daniel Chitwood
From preventing scurvy to being part of religious rituals, citrus are intrinsically connected to human health and perception. From tiny mandarins to head-sized pummelos, citrus capability of hybridization provides a vastly diverse array of fruit sizes and shapes, which in turn corresponds to a diversity of flavors and aromas. These sensory qualities are tightly linked to oil glands in the citrus skin. The oil glands are also key to understanding fruit development, and the essential...

Integrated population model for the Mallard in the Netherlands

, Eelke Jongejans, Chris A. M. Van Turnhout, Loes Van Den Bremer, Henk Van Der Jeugd & Erik Kleyheeg
Europe’s highest densities of breeding Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) are found in the Netherlands, but the breeding population there has declined by ~30% since the 1990s. The exact cause of this decline has remained unclear. Here, we used an integrated population model to jointly analyze Mallard population survey, nest survey, duckling survival and band-recovery data. We used this approach to holistically estimate all relevant vital rates, including duckling survival rates for years for which no explicit...

Grazing and global change factors differentially affect biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships in grassland ecosystems

Miao He, Yuhan Pan, Guiyao Zhou, Kathryn Barry, Yuling Fu & Xuhui Zhou
Grazing and global change (e.g., warming, nitrogen deposition and altered precipitation) both contribute to biodiversity loss and alter ecosystem structure and functioning. However, how grazing and global change interactively influence plant diversity, ecosystem productivity, and their relationship remains unclear at the global scale. Here, we synthesized 73 field studies to quantify the individual and/or interactive effects of grazing and global change factors on biodiversity-productivity relationship in grasslands. Our results showed that grazing significantly reduced plant...

Data from: Gradual warming prior to the end-Permian mass extinction

Jana Gliwa, Michael Wiedenbeck, Martin Schobben, Clemens Vinzenz Ullmann, Wolfgang Kiessling, Abbas Ghaderi, Ulrich Struck & Dieter Korn
The biggest known mass extinction in the history of animal life occurred at the Permian-Triassic boundary and has often been linked to global warming. Previous studies suggested that a geologically rapid (less than 40 kyr) temperature increase of more than 10°C occurred simultaneously with the main extinction pulse. This hypothesis is challenged by geochemical and palaeontological data indicating profound environmental perturbations and a temperature rise prior to the main extinction. Using Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry...

High-density genomic characterization of native Croatian sheep breeds

Ivana Drzaic, Ino Curik, Boris Lukic, Mario Shihabi, Meng-Hua Li, Juha Kantanen, Salvatore Mastrangelo, Elena Ciani, Johannes A. Lenstra & Vlatka Cubric-Curik
A recent comprehensive genomic analysis based on 50K SNP profiles has shown that the regional Balkan sheep populations have considerable genetic overlap but are distinctly different from surrounding breeds. All eight Croatian sheep breeds were represented by a small number of individuals per breed. Here, we genotyped 220 individuals representing the native Croatian sheep breeds (Istrian Sheep, Krk Island Sheep, Cres Island Sheep, Rab Island Sheep, Lika Pramenka, Pag Island Sheep, Dalmatian Pramenka, Dubrovnik Sheep)...

Peak Ring Magnetism: Rock- and mineral-magnetic properties of the Chicxulub impact crater

Bruno Daniel Leite Mendes , Agnes Kontny , Ksenia Gaus , Bonny Kuipers & Mark Dekkers
Large impact structures on Earth like the Chicxulub in Mexico are characterized by magnetic highs but the magneto-mineralogical origin is still poorly constrained and impact-generated melt versus hydrothermal activity models are discussed. The IODP-ICDP expedition 364 drilled into the peak ring of the Chicxulub impact crater, which is characterized by a well-developed hydrothermal system. This system was active for up to 2 Ma, reaching temperatures of 350-450°C. The main goal of our study is the...

Deepwater Systems Reloaded: Advances on our understanding on submarine lobe deposits

Yvonne T. Spychala , David M. Hodgson , Joris T. Eggenhuisen , Stephen Flint , Christopher Stevenson , Mike Tilston , Ian A. Kane , Amadine Prelat & Florian Pohl
Submarine lobes are high aspect ratio sand-rich deposits that are fed by turbidity currents and debris flows via channels in deep-marine settings. As a major component of submarine fans, they represent 1) an important archive of palaeo-environmental change, 2) sinks for organic carbon and pollutants, and 3) are also of economic interest. Classic models describe lobes as purely depositional tabular sheets that thin and fine from an apex. Over the last decade, outcrop studies, numerical...

Estimation of reinforced urn processes under left-truncation and right-censoring

Luis Antonio Souto Arias, Pasquale Cirillo & Cornelis W. Oosterlee
We propose a nonparametric estimator for bivariate left-truncated and right-censored (LTRC) observations that combines the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm and the Reinforced Urn Process (RUP). The resulting Expectation-Reinforcement (ER) algorithm allows for the inclusion of experts' knowledge in the form of a prior distribution, thus belonging to the class of Bayesian models. This can be relevant in applications where the data is incomplete, due to biases in the sampling process, as in the case of left-truncation...

Reciprocal bark exchange helps to disentangle tree species dependent bark and wood trait effects on invertebrate diversity

Chenhui Chang, Matty Berg, Richard Van Logtestijn, Juan Zuo, Li Lin, Cynthia Bom, Jesper Wolters, Maarten Biesbroeck, Pepijn De Ruijter, Mariet Hefting, Ute Sass-Klaassen & Hans Cornelissen
1. Previous studies showed that bark cover at early-decay stage had profound control on the invertebrate assemblages of bark and wood, with possible consequence for the decomposition process. However, previous experimental designs could not disentangle how bark versus wood traits affect the invertebrate assemblage process in bark and/or wood separately because wood traits of different tree species may vary independently from bark traits. Furthermore, we do not know whether such tree species specific bark trait...

Effectiveness of an add-on guided internet-based emotion regulation training (E-TRAIN) in adolescents with depressive and/or anxiety disorders: study protocol for a multicenter randomized controlled trial

Julie Emmelkamp, Marike A Wisman, Nico JM Beuk, Yvonne AJ Stikkelbroek, Maaike H Nauta, Jack JM Dekker & Carolien Christ
Abstract Background During adolescence, depressive and anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health disorders. Both disorders tend to persist, are predictive for other mental disorders, and are associated with severe impairment in diverse areas. Although Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has proven to be an effective treatment, a considerable number of adolescents do not respond to CBT and residual symptoms often remain. Therefore, it is of great importance to improve treatment outcomes for depressed...

Methods This large cross-sectional study consecutively included unselected individuals aged $$\ge$$ ≥ 16 years presenting for SARS-CoV-2 testing at three public health service test sites. Participants underwent molecular test sampling and received two self-tests (the Hangzhou AllTest Biotech saliva self-test and...

Evidence for pharmacological interventions to reduce cardiovascular risk for patients with chronic kidney disease: a study protocol of an evidence map

Julia M. T. Colombijn, Demy L. Idema, Kim van der Braak, Rene Spijker, Sabine C. A. Meijvis, Michiel L. Bots, Lotty Hooft, Marianne C. Verhaar & Robin W. M. Vernooij
Abstract Background Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) require a personalised strategy for cardiovascular risk management (CVRM) to reduce their high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Despite their high risk, patients with CKD appear to be underrepresented in randomised controlled trials (RCTs) for pharmacological CVRM interventions to reduce cardiovascular risk (pharmacological CVRM interventions). As a result, it remains unclear whether the efficacy of these interventions found in patients without CKD is similarly applicable to...
