Data from: Specialist foragers in forest bee communities are small, social or emerge early

Colleen Smith, Lucia Weinman, Jason Gibbs & Rachael Winfree
1. Individual pollinators that specialize on one plant species within a foraging bout transfer more conspecific and less heterospecific pollen, positively affecting plant reproduction. However, we know much less about pollinator specialization at the scale of a foraging bout compared to specialization at the species level. 2. In this study, we measured the diversity of pollen carried by individual bees foraging in forest plant communities in the mid-Atlantic United States. 3. We found that individuals...

Data from: Categorizing and assessing comprehensive drivers of provider behavior for optimizing quality of health care

Elisabeth Engl, Steve Kretschmer, Mokshada Jain, Saransh Sharma, Ram Prasad, B. M. Ramesh, Mrunal Shetye, Seema Tandon, Sanjiv Kumar, Tisa Barrios Wilson & Sema K. Sgaier
Inadequate quality of care in healthcare facilities is one of the primary causes of patient mortality in low- and middle-income countries, and understanding the behavior of healthcare providers is key to addressing it. Much of the existing research concentrates on improving resource-focused issues, such as staffing or training, but these interventions do not fully close the gaps in quality of care. By contrast, there is a lack of knowledge regarding the full contextual and internal...

Nutrient deposition on Arctic fox dens creates atypical tundra plant assemblages at the edge of the Arctic

John Markham, Paul Fafard & Jim Roth
Questions: In most ecosystems, some organisms can be considered ecosystem engineers because they modify their physical environment in a way that can affect many other organisms. Nutrient deposition may be extremely important as an ecosystem engineering activity in nutrient-limited environments, but this mechanism remains understudied. In low-Arctic tundra, a region characterized by continuous permafrost, low-nutrient soils, and slow nutrient turnover, Arctic foxes (Vulpes lagopus) concentrate nutrients on their dens through fecal deposition and feeding their...
