Foliar fungal endophytes are one of the most diverse guilds of symbiotic fungi found in the photosynthetic tissues of every plant lineage, but it is unclear how plant environments and leaf resource availability shape their diversity. We explored correlations between leaf nutrient availability and endophyte diversity among Pinus muricata and Vaccinium ovatum plants growing across a soil nutrient gradient spanning a series of coastal terraces in Mendocino, California. Endophyte richness decreased in plants with higher...
Restoring function: positive responses of carbon and nitrogen to 20 years of hydrologic restoration in montane meadowsCody Reed, Cody Reed, Asmeret Berhe, Kimber Moreland, Jim Wilcox & Benjamin Sullivan
Montane meadows are highly productive ecosystems that contain high densities of soil carbon (C) and nitrogen (N). However, anthropogenic disturbances that lead to channel incision and disconnected floodplain hydrology have altered the C balance of many meadows, converting them from net C sinks to net sources of C to the atmosphere. Restoration efforts designed to reconnect floodplain hydrology may slow rates of soil C loss from degraded meadows and restore conditions for C sequestration and...
Current pre-clinical models of cancer fail to recapitulate the cancer cell behavior in primary tumors primarily because of the lack of a deeper understanding of the effects that the microenvironment has on cancer cell phenotype. Transcriptomic profiling of 4T1 murine mammary carcinoma cells from 2D and 3D cultures, subcutaneous or orthotopic allografts (from immunocompetent or immunodeficient mice), as well as ex vivo tumoroids, revealed differences in molecular signatures including altered expression of genes involved in...
Data from: Enhanced decomposition and nitrogen mineralisation sustain rapid growth of Eucalyptus regnans after wildfireFeike A. Dijkstra, Meaghan Jenkins, Vivien De Remy De Courcelles, Claudia Keitel, Margaret M. Barbour, Zachary E. Kayler & Mark A. Adams
Eucalyptus regnans grows rapidly from seed after wildfires, out-competing other species, thereby forming pure stands of mature forests that rank amongst the world's most carbon dense. By global standards, these forests grow on infertile soils. It is unclear how E. regnans is able to obtain large amounts nitrogen (N) from these infertile soils to support its rapid growth after fire. We measured carbon (C) and N stored in plant biomass and photosynthetic rates of E....
Mechanical damage of hair can serve as an indicator of health status and its assessment relies on the measurement of morphological features via microscopic analysis, yet few studies have categorized the extent of damage sustained, and instead, have depended on qualitative profiling based on the presence or absence of specific features. We describe the development and application of a novel quantitative measure for scoring hair surface damage in scanning electron microscopic (SEM) images without predefined...
Villarrica is known to produce continuous monotonic infrasound making it a prime subject for volcano infrasound studies. This dataset corresponds to three distribution of infrasound sensors deployed across Villarrica's summit, flank, and a neighboring river (Rio Turbio) during a week in January 2020. Data was recorded on Gem Infrasound Loggers, which recorded with a sensitivity of 2.077962e-05 V/Pa, a 26 second corner period, and a sample rate of 100 Hz.

Modeled dataset for the estimation of atmospheric transport errors using a Multi-Physics and Analysis Ensemble on the Midwest USL.I. Diaz-Isaac, T. Lauvaux & K.J. Davis
Atmospheric inversions are used to assess biosphere-atmosphere CO2 surface exchanges. However, large uncertainties exist among inverse flux estimates independent of the spatial scales. Atmospheric transport model errors are one of the main contributors to the uncertainty affecting CO2 inverse flux estimates but have not been quantified thoroughly. The model dataset archived here were used to evaluate atmospheric transport errors over the US upper Midwest with an ensemble of simulations created with the Weather Research and...
Understanding giant impacts requires accurate description of how extreme pressures and temperatures affect the physical properties of the constituent materials. Here, we report shock experiments on two polymorphs of MgSiO3: enstatite and bridgmanite (perovskite) crystals. We obtain pressure-density shock equation of state to 14 Mbar and more than 9 g/cm3 a 40 % increase in density from previous data on MgSiO3. Density-functional-theory molecular dynamics (DFT-MD) simulations provide predictions for the shock Hugoniot curves for bridgmanite...
Minnesota peat viromes reveal terrestrial and aquatic niche partitioning for local and global viral populationsAnneliek Ter Horst, Christian Santos-Medellín, Jackson Sorensen, Laura Zinke, Rachel Wilson, Eric Johnston, Gareth Trubl, Jennifer Pett-Ridge, Steven Blazewicz, Paul Hanson, Jeffrey Chanton, Christopher Schadt, Joel Kostka & Joanne Emerson
Background: Peatlands are expected to experience sustained yet fluctuating higher temperatures due to climate change, leading to increased microbial activity and greenhouse gas emissions. Despite mounting evidence for viral contributions to these processes in thawing permafrost, little is known about viruses in other peatlands. More generally, soil viral biogeography and its potential drivers are poorly understood at both local and global scales. Here, 87 metagenomes and five viral size-fraction metagenomes (viromes) from a boreal peatland...
Data from: Reconstructing the migratory behavior and long-term survivorship of juvenile Chinook salmon under contrasting hydrologic regimesAnna M. Sturrock, J. D. Wikert, Timothy Heyne, Carl Mesick, Alan E. Hubbard, Travis M. Hinkelman, Peter K. Weber, George E. Whitman, Justin J. Glessner & Rachel C. Johnson
The loss of genetic and life history diversity has been documented across many taxonomic groups, and is considered a leading cause of increased extinction risk. Juvenile salmon leave their natal rivers at different sizes, ages and times of the year, and it is thought that this life history variation contributes to their population sustainability, and is thus central to many recovery efforts. However, in order to preserve and restore diversity in life history traits, it...

Data from: Single-cell transcriptomic analysis of tumor-derived fibroblasts and normal tissue-resident fibroblasts reveals fibroblast heterogeneity in breast cancerNicholas Hum, Aimy Sebastian, Kelly Martin, Sean Gilmore, Stephen Byers, Elizabeth Wheeler, Matthew Coleman & Gabriela Loots
Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are a prominent stromal cell type in solid tumors and molecules secreted by CAFs play an important role in tumor progression and metastasis. CAFs coexist as heterogeneous populations with potentially different biological functions. Although CAFs are a major component of the breast cancer stroma, molecular and phenotypic heterogeneity of CAFs in breast cancer is poorly understood. In this study, we investigated CAF heterogeneity in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) using a syngeneic mouse...
Internal waves strongly influence the physical and chemical environment of coastal ecosystems worldwide. We report novel observations from a distributed temperature sensing (DTS) system that tracked the transformation of internal waves from the shelf break to the surf zone over a narrow shelf-slope region in the South China Sea. The spatially-continuous view of temperature fields provides a perspective of physical processes commonly available only in laboratory settings or numerical models, including internal wave reflection off...
Numerical Simulations of Laboratory-Scale, Hypervelocity-Impact Experiments for Asteroid-Deflection Code ValidationTane P. Remington, J. Michael Owen, Akiko M. Nakamura, Paul L. Miller & Megan B. Syal
Asteroids and comets have the potential to impact Earth and cause damage at the local to global scale. Deflection or disruption of a potentially hazardous object could prevent future Earth impacts, but due to our limited ability to perform experiments directly on asteroids, our understanding of the process relies upon large-scale hydrodynamic simulations. Related simulations must be vetted through code validation by benchmarking against relevant laboratory-scale hypervelocity-impact experiments. To this end, we compare simulation results...
Rare phenotypes and behaviours within a population are often overlooked, yet they may serve a heightened role for species imperilled by rapid warming. In threatened spring-run Chinook salmon spawning at the southern edge of the species range, we show late-migrating juveniles are critical to cohort success in years characterized by droughts and ocean heatwaves. Late migrants rely on cool river temperatures over summer, increasingly rare due to the combined effects of warming and impassable dams....
Molecular dynamics trajectories for ionic conductors in: Paradigms of frustration in superionic solid electrolytesBrandon Wood, Joel Varley, Kyoung Kweon, Patrick Shea, Alex Hall, Andrew Grieder, Michael Ward, Vincent Aguirre, Dylan Ringling, Eduardo Ventura, Chimara Stancill & Nicole Adelstein
Superionic solid electrolytes have widespread use in energy devices, but the fundamental motivations for fast ion conduction are often elusive. Here, we draw upon atomistic simulations of a wide range of halide, oxide, sulfide, and closo-borate superionic conductors to illustrate some of the key features that enhance local cation mobility in these solids. We classify three types of frustration that create competition between different local atomic preferences, thereby flattening the diffusive energy landscape and enhancing...
