Data from: Patterns of rangeland productivity and land ownership: implications for conservation and management

Nathaniel P. Robinson, Brady W. Allred, David E. Naugle & Matthew O. Jones
Rangelands cover 40-50% of the earth’s terrestrial surface. While often characterized by limited, yet variable resource availability, rangelands are vital for humans, providing numerous ecosystem goods and services. In the conterminous United States (CONUS) the dominant component of rangeland conservation is a network of public rangelands, concentrated in the west. Public rangelands are interspersed with private and tribal rangelands resulting in a complex mosaic of land tenure and management priorities. We quantify ownership patterns of...

Winter damage is more important than summer temperature for maintaining the krummholz growth form above alpine treeline

Colin T. Maher, Cara R. Nelson & Andrew J. Larson
1. Understanding the processes that control alpine treelines, the elevational limits of tree growth forms, has been a central question in ecology and is growing in importance with concern over climate change. Cool summer air temperatures are currently thought to be the ultimate limiter of upright tree growth at alpine treelines globally. However, winter damage has long been recognized as a shaping force near alpine treelines. Low-growing krummholz growth forms provide an opportunity to test...

Data from: The laboratory domestication of zebrafish: from diverse populations to inbred substrains

Jaanus Suurväli, Andrew R. Whiteley, Yichen Zheng, Karim Gharbi, Maria Leptin & Thomas Wiehe
We know from human genetic studies that practically all aspects of biology are strongly influenced by the genetic background, as reflected in the advent of ‘personalized medicine’. Yet, with few exceptions, this is not taken into account when using laboratory populations as animal model systems for research in these fields. Laboratory strains of zebrafish (Danio rerio) are widely used for research in vertebrate developmental biology, behaviour and physiology, for modelling diseases, and for testing pharmaceutic...
