Data from: Predicting the spread of all invasive forest pests in the United States

Emma J. Hudgins, Andrew M. Liebhold & Brian Leung
We tested whether a general spread model could capture macroecological patterns across all damaging invasive forest pests in the United States. We showed that a common constant dispersal kernel model, simulated from the discovery date, explained 67.94% of the variation in range size across all pests, and had 68.00% locational accuracy between predicted and observed locational distributions. Further, by making dispersal a function of forest area and human population density, variation explained increased to 75.60%,...

International Crisis Behavior Project, 1918-2001

Michael Brecher & Jonathan Wilkenfeld
This data collection was produced as part of the International Crisis Behavior Project, a research effort aimed at investigating 20th-century interstate crises and the behavior of states under externally generated stress. To this end, the data describe, over a 83-year period, the sources, processes, and outcomes of all military-security crises involving states (with data on 956 crisis actors and 80 variables for each case). Variables were collected at both the micro/state actor level and the...

Data from: Defector clustering is linked to cooperation in a pathogenic bacterium

Edward W. Tekwa, Dao Nguyen, Michel Loreau & Andrew Gonzalez
Spatial clustering is thought to favour the evolution of cooperation because it puts cooperators in a position to help each other. However, clustering also increases competition. The fate of cooperation may depend on how much cooperators cluster relative to defectors, but these clustering differences have not been the focus of previous models and experiments. By competing siderophore-producing cooperator and defector strains of the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa in experimental microhabitats, we found that at the...
