Spatial personalities: a meta-analysis of consistent individual differences in spatial behavior

Erica Stuber, Ben Carlson & Brett Jesmer
Individual variation in behavior, particularly consistent among-individual differences (i.e., personality), has important ecological and evolutionary implications for population and community dynamics, trait divergence, and patterns of speciation. Nevertheless, individual variation in spatial behaviors, such as home range behavior, movement characteristics, or habitat use has yet to be incorporated into the concepts or methodologies of ecology and evolutionary biology. To evaluate evidence for the existence of consistent among-individual differences in spatial behavior – which we refer...

Improving intra- and inter-annual GPP predictions by using individual-tree inventories and leaf growth dynamics

Jing Fang, James Lutz, Herman Shugart, Xiaodong Yan, Wenqiang Xie & Feng Liu
Carbon sequestration is a key ecosystem service provided by forests. Inventory data based on individual trees are considered to be the most accurate method for estimating forest productivity. However, estimations of forest photosynthesis itself from inventory data remains understudied, particularly when considering the growth and development of individual trees under the background of global change. Here, we used the leaf growth process with phenology and non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) storage to revise an individual-tree based carbon...

Genomic time-series data show that gene flow maintains high genetic diversity despite substantial genetic drift in a butterfly species

Zachariah Gompert, Amy Springer, Megan Brady, Samridhi Chaturvedi & Lauren Lucas
Effective population size affects the efficacy of selection, rate of evolution by drift, and neutral diversity levels. When species are subdivided into multiple populations connected by gene flow, evolutionary processes can depend on global or local effective population sizes. Theory predicts that high levels of diversity might be maintained by gene flow, even very low levels of gene flow, consistent with species long-term effective population size, but tests of this idea are mostly lacking. Here,...

Physical and physiological performance adjust according to magnitude of an integrated immune challenge in the side-blotched lizard (Uta stansburiana)

Spencer Hudson, Emily Virgin, & Susannah French
Physical and physiological performance traits are constrained by their energetic costs, potentiating trade-offs when competing demands of the environment (internal, external) impinge upon concurrent investment. For reptiles, the costs of responding to internal challenges (e.g. infection, injury) can impede coping with external challenges (e.g. predator avoidance, foraging), and vice versa. Whether phenotypic shifts in performance occur may depend on not only challenge type and energetic state, but also challenge severity and response priority. To address...

Greenhouse- and field-measured plant-soil feedbacks are not correlated

andrew kulmatiski
Plant-soil feedbacks (PSFs) have become a commonly invoked mechanism of plant coexistence and abundance. Yet, most PSF experiments have been performed in greenhouse conditions. To test whether or not greenhouse-measured PSF values are of similar magnitude and positively correlated with field-measured PSFs, we compared PSF values from five different studies that measured PSF values in both greenhouse and field conditions. For 36 plant species, greenhouse-measured PSF values were larger than and not positively correlated with...

Data from: Expansion of aromaticity magnetic criteria on multi-layer structures. Magnetic response and spherical aromaticity of Matryoshka-like [Sn@Cu12@Sn20]12- cluster

Alexander Boldyrev & Maksim Kulichenko
Structural characterization of the discrete [Sn@Cu12@Sn20]12− cluster exposed a fascinating architecture composed of three concentric structural layers in which an endohedral Sn atom is enclosed in a Cu12 icosahedron, which in turn is embedded in an Sn20 dodecahedron. Herein, the possibility of sustaining aromatic behavior for this prototypical multilayered species was evaluated, in order to extend this concept to more complex clusters on the basis of magnetic response and bonding analysis by the AdNDP approach....

Public Perception of UAS and Vertiports in the Wastach Front Survey Results

Brent C. Chamberlain, Katelynn Hall & Keunhynn Park
This project aims to further understand the current public perception of UAS and their integration into residential areas for package delivery through the development of vertiports The survey also aims to identify evidence of NIMBY (not in my backyard) in these perceptions. The survey specifically asked participants about demographics, familiarity with UAV, perceptions of UAV, and perceptions of vertiports through 6 different potential vertiport placements in residential of community center focused areas.

Grazing Exclosure Experiment on the Henry Mountains of Southern Utah

Johan T du Toit & Dustin Ranglack
The data contained herein are the results of a grazing exclosure experiment on the Henry Mountains of S. Utah [38°5’ N, 100°50’W] to determine the relative impacts of bison, cattle, and lagomorphs on forage availability. Exclosures were erected in October 2011 and the standing crop of grass inside both exclosure types (full and partial), as well as an open reference plot was clipped in October 2012. Additionally, the local ranching community was surveyed to measure...

Data from: Genotyping-by-Sequencing for Populus Population Genomics: An Assessment of Genome Sampling Patterns and Filtering Approaches

Paul Wolf, Martin P. Schilling, Aaron Duffy, Hardeep S. Rai, Carol A. Rowe, Karen E. Mock & Bryce A. Richardson
Continuing advances in nucleotide sequencing technology are inspiring a suite of genomic approaches in studies of natural populations. Researchers are faced with data management and analytical scales that are increasing by orders of magnitude. With such dramatic advances comes a need to understand biases and error rates, which can be propagated and magnified in large-scale data acquisition and processing. Here we assess genomic sampling biases and the effects of various population-level data filtering strategies in...

Tabletop to Screen

Victor Lee, Mimi Recker & Jody Clarke-Midura
In this project we introduced students to coding via analog board games. Then students played digital instantiations of those board games. While students played the digital versions of the game, teachers leveraged similarities between the board game and the digital environment to introduce programming concepts. Finally, students created their own digital board games, applying the programming concepts that they learned in the first two parts. This project was implemented in both the students’ classroom and...

N. Macriss, T.J. Furniss, S.M.A. Jeronimo, E. L. Crowley, O. W. Germain, S. Germain, V. R. Kane, A. J. Larson & James A. Lutz
The 55 JFSP plots were established to capture forest types, fire histories, and severity levels beyond those found within the YFPD. The plots were square 50 m × 50 m plots established in Pinus ponderosa, Pinus jeffreyi, and Abies concolor – Pinus lambertiana forest types between 1,431 m and 2,250 m elevation. Plots were installed post-fire based on a randomly chosen locations stratified by burn severity levels as calculated from the differenced Normalized Burn Ratio...
