Emigrant Savings Bank Depositor Data: "Depositor Database," "Household Database," and "Transactions Database" Files Created by Anbinder, O Grada, and Wegge

Tyler Anbinder, Simone Wegge & Cormac O Grada
This project involved creating a database of information on the predominantly Irish immigrants who opened the first 18,000 accounts at New York's Emigrant Savings Bank from 1850 to 1858. The "Depositor Database" contains a line for each of the bank's depositors and we supplemented the information in the bank's ledgers with data from the U.S. census, ship manifests, city directories, newspapers, death records, and court documents (including wills probated in the city's Surrogates Court). The...

Replication Data for: Maize response to macronutrients and potential for profitability in sub-Saharan Africa

Job Kihara
Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is plagued by low productivity and little research is available on the attainable responses and profitability to applied nutrients under variable environments. The objective of this study was to determine the attainable maize grain response to and potential of profitability of N, P and K application in SSA using boundary line approaches. Data from experiments conducted in SSA under AfSIS project (2009–2012) and from FAO trials database (1969–1996) in 15 countries and...

Puerto Rico Land Cover/Land Use Map in 2010

Chao Wang, Mei Yu, Qiong Gao & Xian Wang
This data set provides land cover and land use(LCLU) classification product at 30-m spatial resolution for Puerto Rico in 2010. The LCLU data was derived from Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) and Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) Phased Array L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) data around the year of 2010. The ground reference data were acquired by historical LCLU map, field trip surveys, and visual interpretation of high spatial resolution imagery from Google...

Replication Data for: Mbosso C Degrande A Villamor G van Damme P Tchoundjeu Z Tsafack S 2015 Factors affecting the adoption of agricultural innovation: the case of a Ricinodendron heudelotii kernel extraction machine in southern Cameroo

Charlie Mbossio
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/ZZDMXAAgroforestry is now accepted as a sustainable way of improving existing cropping systems. As with other agricultural innovations, the adoption of agroforestry practices depends on farmers’ perceptions of the benefits that would arise from the use of these practices. Ricinodendron heudelotii (Baill. Pierre ex Pax.) or njansang (in Bassa local language) is a tropical tree, the kernels of which are in high demand in Cameroon as a thickening ingredient. Njansang...

Tsafack SAM, Degrande A, Franzel S, Simpson B. 2015. Farmer-to-farmer extension: a survey of lead farmers in Cameroon. ICRAF Working Paper No. 195. Nairobi, World Agroforestry Centre.

Sygnola Tsafack & Degrande Ann
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/ZW5I9VThis study examines how the farmer-to-farmer (F2F) extension approach is implemented by farmer trainers in Cameroon. Those farmers selected to lead F2F extension are often known by different names but in this study, we use the term “lead farmer” (LF) as a generic term even though different names sometimes imply different roles. A questionnaire was used to collect data from 160 randomly selected LFs in six regions in Cameroon in...

Building Biocarbon and Rural Development in West Africa (BIODEV), WP3

Kalame, Fobissie; Kanninen, Markku
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/ZDW61DThe Building Biocarbon and Rural Development in West Africa Programme aims to demonstrate the multiple developmental and environmental wins that result from a high value biocarbon approach to climate change and variability in large landscapes principally in Mali, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The Programme will also build local institutions and capacity to be able to sustain the benefits in the sites and will establish linkages with related initiatives to jointly...

Sygnola Tsafack and Ann Degrande (2015) The Value of Printed Sources of Information in Agricultural Extension Case Study on “The Farmer’s Voice” in Cameroon, MEAS Evaluative Case Study

Tsafack Sygnola & Degrande Ann
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/Z1XF0SVarious methods are used to provide extension workers and farmers with agricultural information. Printed materials remain a major source of information, despite digitalization of information networks, but few studies have looked at their effectiveness. The present work characterizes and assesses the effectiveness of The Farmer’s Voice (TFV), an agricultural newspaper in Cameroon. Data were collected using a semi-structured questionnaire from 107 randomly sampled readers (mainly farmers, lead farmers and extension...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/XXW0JGThis study consists of village level baseline data and other related materials generated as part of the ‘Sentinel Landscapes’ initiative. The village level baseline data was collected using four survey protocols designed by the International Forest Resources and Institutions (IFRI). The data collected is used to understand the relationship between communities, local governance and forests. Four IFRI protocols were used for this purpose: (i) Forest Form (ii) Settlement Form (iii)...

Replication Data for: Rôle des feux de savane sur les caractéristiques biogéochimiques des sols en zone soudanienne du Burkina Faso

S Doamba, P Savadogo & H.B Nacro
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/WPB4MVLes feux de brousse dont les effets dépendent aussi bien de leurs intensités ainsi que de leur saison d’occurrence, sont considérés comme une perturbation écologique majeure des écosystèmes savanicoles. L’objectif général de cette étude est de générer des connaissances sur l’effet de la quantité du combustible et de la saison du feu sur le comportement du feu et les propriétés chimiques et biologiques du sol afin d’aider à la gestion...

Replication Data for: REDD+ Policy Approaches in the Congo Basin: A Comparative Analysis of Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

Fobissie Kalame, Alemagi Dieudonne & Minang Peter
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/WK3RANThe Congo Basin forests are a prime location for implementing REDD+. National REDD+ policy processes are ongoing and many REDD+ pilot initiatives are being demonstrated. However, the level of national engagement, progress and distributionof REDD+ activities varies considerably in the different Congo Basin countries. This study therefore uses a set of criteria to assess national and international policy initiatives and approaches for advancing REDD+ implementation in Cameroon and the Democratic...

Replication data for: Plant elemental composition and portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) spectroscopy: quantification under different analytical parameters

Erick Towett, Keith Shepherd & B Lee Drake
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/WGWE8SEmergence of portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) systems presents new opportunities for rapid, low-cost plant analysis, both as a lab system and in situ system. Numerous studies have extolled the virtues of using pXRF for a wide range of plant applications, however, formany such applications, there is need for further assessmentwith regards to analytical parameters for plant analysis. While pXRF is a potential powerful research tool for elemental composition analysis, its...
