Data from: Grazing pressure affects offspring sex ratio in a socially monogamous passerine on the Tibet Plateau

Shaobin Li, Ruirui Shi, Wei Li & Guopan Li
Livestock grazing can affect habitat structure and availability of arthropod prey for grassland birds, and ultimately determines habitat quality. The habitat quality may affect breeding strategies (e.g. sex ratio adjustment) in bird species, but yet studies investigating grazing intensity on offspring sex ratio are still rare. In this paper, we examined the effect of grazing intensity by livestock on the secondary sex ratio of an alpine-steppe passerine, the Isabelline Wheatear Oenanthe isabellina, on the Tibet...

Data from: Corrosion resistant systems of formate packer fluid for G3/N80/TP110SS pipes at high temperature, high pressure and high H2S/CO2 ratios

Peng Xu, Zhengwu Tao & Zhihong Wang
A series of corrosion problems caused by high-temperature, high-pressure and high-acid gas environments has been an issue in oil and gas production for a long time. During the development of a high-acid gas field, the petroleum pipe is subjected to many aspects of corrosion, and the corrosion mechanism is complicated by the condition of the coexistence of H2S/CO2/O2. Based on the study of the corrosion problem associated with the formate packer fluid in Southwest China,...

Data from: Incorporation of Mn2+ into CdSe quantum dots by chemical bath co-deposition method for photovoltaic enhancement of quantum dot-sensitized solar cells

Chenguang Zhang, Shaowen Liu, Xingwei Liu, Fei Deng, Yan Xiong & Fang-Chang Tsai
A photoelectric conversion efficiency (PCE) of 4.9% was obtained under 100 mWcm−2 illumination by using quantum-dot-sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs) using a CdS/Mn:CdSe sensitizer. CdS quantum dots (QDs) were deposited on the TiO2 mesoporous oxide film by successive ionic layer absorption and reaction. Mn2+ doping into CdSe QDs is an innovative and simple method—chemical bath co-deposition, that is, mixing the Mn ion source with CdSe precursor solution for Mn:CdSe QD deposition. Compared with the CdS/CdSe sensitizer...

Data from: Landscape genetic structure of Scirpus mariqueter reveals a putatively adaptive differentiation under strong gene flow in estuaries

Mei Yang, Chengyuan Xu, Pierre Duchesne, Qiang Ma, Ganqiang Yin, Yang Fang, Fan Lu & Wenju Zhang
Estuarine organisms grow in highly heterogeneous habitats and their genetic differentiation are driven by selective and neutral processes as well as population colonization history. However, the relative importance of the processes that underlie genetic structure is still puzzling. Scirpus mariqueter is a perennial grass almost limited in the Changjiang River estuary and it’s adjacent Qiantang River estuary. Here, using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), a moderate-high level of genetic differentiation among populations (range FST: 0.0310-0.3325)...

Data from: Whitefly aggregation on tomato is mediated by feeding-induced changes in plant metabolites that influence the behavior and performance of conspecifics

Qi Su, Gong Chen, Mark C. Mescher, Zhengke Peng, Wen Xie, Shaoli Wang, Qingjun Wu, Jie Liu, Chuanren Li, Wenkai Wang & Youjun Zhang
1.Leaf damage caused by herbivore feeding often triggers induced resistance in plants. However, some herbivores can take advantage of the resulting metabolic changes in host plants and may even manipulate plant resistance, leading to a phenomenon known as induced susceptibility. 2.Previous work has shown that feeding by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci can reduce tomato Solanum lycopersicum resistance and that whiteflies tended to aggregate on infested plants. However, metabolomic changes in the plant and associated whitefly...
