Adey_Larson_Behavior.csv: Results of behavioral assays for rusty crayfish Faxonius rusticus collected from six lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin in summer 2018. Crayfish_ID is an individual crayfish ID or identifier that matches to individuals in Adey_Larson_Isotope. Collection is how organisms were collected (trapped = baited trapping, snorkel = by hand). Lake is the study lake crayfish were collected from. Length is crayfish carapace length in mm. CPUE is crayfish catch-per-unit effort from baited trapping in that lake during summer 2018. Shelter_Occupancy, Exploration, Feeding_Snail, Feeding_Detritus, Feeding_Crayfish, and Aggressiveness are behavioral assay scores for individual crayfish. Shelter_Occupancy is frequency of observation intervals (12 maximum) in which crayfish were observed in shelter over a 12 hour period. Exploration is time for crayfish to explore a new area measured in seconds (maximum possible time 1200 seconds or 20 minutes). Feeding_Snail, Feeding_Detritus, and Feeding_Crayfish is the time for crayfish to take a food item (snail, detritus, or snail in the presence of another crayfish) measured in seconds (maximum possibe time 1200 seconds or 20 minutes). Aggressiveness is the response to an approach with a novel object scored as a fast retreat (-2), slow retreat (-1), no visible response (0), approach without threat display (1), approach with threat display (2), interaction with closed chelae (3), or interaction with open chelae (4). Three repeated aggressiveness measures were made per individual (Aggresiveness1, Aggresiveness2, Aggresiveness3), which were summed for inclusion in subsequent analyses (Aggresiveness_Sum). More detailed behavioral assay methods can be found in Adey 2019 Masters thesis. Adey_Larson_Isotope.csv: Stable isotope (13C, 15N) values for rusty crayfish Faxonius rusticus and snail or mussel primary consumers from six lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin collected during summer 2018. Crayf is an individual crayfish ID or identifier that matches to the same individual crayfish in Adey_Larson_Behavior. Lake is the study lake. Collection is how organisms were collected (trapped = baited trapping, snorkel = by hand). Sample type indicates whether isotope values are for crayfish, snail, or mussel. d13C and d15N are stable isotope values.

In a set of field studies across four years, the effect of self-shading on photosynthetic performance in lower canopy sorghum leaves was studied at sites in Champaign County, IL. Photosynthetic parameters in upper and lower canopy leaves, carbon assimilation, electron transport, stomatal conductance, and activity of three C4-specific photosynthetic enzymes, were compared within a genetically diverse range of accessions varying widely in canopy architecture and thereby in the degree of self-shading. Accessions with erect leaves and high light transmission through the canopy are henceforth referred to as ‘erectophile’ and those with low leaf erectness, ‘planophile’. In the final year of the study, bundle sheath leakiness in erectophile and planophile accessions was also compared.

Total nitrogen leaching rates were calculated over the Mississippi Atchafalaya River Basin (MARB) using an integrated economic-biophysical modeling approach. Land allocation for corn production and total nitrogen application rates were calculated for crop reporting districts using the Biofuel and Environmental Policy Analysis Model (BEPAM) for 5 RFS2 policy scenarios. These were used as input in the Integrated BIosphere Simulator-Agricultural Version (Agro-IBIS) and the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model with Biogeochemistry (THMB) to calculate the nitrogen loss. Land allocation and total nitrogen application simulations were simulated for the period 2016-2030 for 303 crop reporting districts (https://www.nass.usda.gov/Data_and_Statistics/County_Data_Files/Frequently_Asked_Questions/county_list.txt). The final 2030 values are reported here. Both are stored in csv files. Units for land allocation are million ha and nitrogen application are million kg. The nitrogen leaching rates were modeled with a spatial resolution of 5' x 5' using the North American Datum of 1983 projection and stored in NetCDF files. The 30-year average is calculated over the last 30 years of the 45 years being simulated. Leaching rates are calculated in kg-N/ha.

This dataset contains model output from the Community Earth System Model, Version 2 (CESM2; Danabasoglu et al. 2020). These data were used for analysis in Impacts of Large-Scale Soil Moisture Anomalies in Southeastern South America, published in the Journal of Hydrometeorology (DOI: 10.1175/JHM-D-20-0116.1). See this publication for details of the model simulations that created these data. Four NetCDF (.nc) files are included in this dataset. Two files correspond to the control simulation (FHIST_SP_control) and two files correspond to a simulation with a dry soil moisture anomaly imposed in southeastern South America (FHIST_SP_dry; see the publication mentioned in the preceding paragraph for details on the spatial extent of the imposed anomaly). For each simulation, one file corresponds to output from the atmospheric model (file names with "cam") of CESM2 and the other to the land model (file names with "clm2"). These files are raw CESM output concatenated into a single file for each simulation. All files include data from 1979-01-02 to 2003-12-31 at a daily resolution. The spatial resolution of all files is about 1 degree longitude x 1 degree latitude. Variables included in these files are listed or linked below.

Coups d'état are important events in the life of a country. They constitute an important subset of irregular transfers of political power that can have significant and enduring consequences for national well-being. There are only a limited number of datasets available to study these events (Powell and Thyne 2011, Marshall and Marshall 2019). Seeking to facilitate research on post-WWII coups by compiling a more comprehensive list and categorization of these events, the Cline Center for Advanced Social Research (previously the Cline Center for Democracy) initiated the Coup D'état Project (CDP) as part of its Societal Infrastructures and Development (SID) project. More specifically, this dataset identifies the outcomes of coup events (i.e. realized or successful coups, unrealized coup attempts, or thwarted conspiracies) the type of actor(s) who initiated the coup (i.e. military, rebels, etc.), as well as the fate of the deposed leader. This is version 2.0.0 of this dataset. The first version, <a href="https://clinecenter.illinois.edu/project/research-themes/democracy-and-development/coup-detat-project-cdp ">v.1.0.0</a>, was released in 2013. Since then, the Cline Center has taken several steps to improve on the previously-released data. These changes include: <ol> <li>Filling in missing event data values</li> <li>Removing events with no identifiable dates</li> <li>Reconciling event dates from sources that have conflicting information</li> <li>Removing events with insufficient sourcing (each event now has at least two sources)</li> <li>Removing events that were inaccurately coded and did not meet our definition of a coup event</li> <li>Extending the time period covered from 1945-2005 to 1945-2019</li> <li>Removing certain variables that fell below the threshold of inter-coder reliability required by the project</li> <li>The spreadsheet ‘CoupInventory.xls’ was removed because of inadequate attribution and citation in the event summaries</li></ol> <b>Items in this Dataset</b> 1. <i>CDP v.2.0.2 Codebook.pdf</i> <ul><li>This 14-page document provides a description of the Cline Center Coup D’état Project Dataset.

Dataset associated with "Hiding in plain sight: genetic confirmation of putative Louisiana Fatmucket Lampsilis hydiana in Illinois" as submitted to Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation by Stodola et al. Images are from cataloged specimens from the Illinois Natural History Survey (INHS) Mollusk Collection in Champaign, Illinois that were used for genetic research. File names indicate the species as confirmed in Stodola et al. (i.e., Lampsilis siliquoidea or Lampsilis hydiana) followed by the INHS Mollusk Collection catalog number, followed by the individual specimen number, followed by shell view (interior or exterior). If no specimen number is noted in the file name, there is only one specimen for that catalog number. For example: Lsiliquoidea_46515_1_2_3_exterior. Images were created by photographing specimens on a metric grid in an OrTech Photo-e-Box Plus with a Nikon D610 single lens reflex camera using a 60mm lens. Post-processing of images (cropping, image rotation, and auto contrast) occurred in Adobe Photoshop and saved as TIFF files using no image compression, interleaved pixel order, and IBM PC Byte Order. One additional partial lot, INHS Mollusk Catalog No. 37059 (shown with both interior and exterior view in one image), is included for reference but was not genetically sequenced. A .csv file contains an index of all specimens photographed. SPECIES: species confirmed using genetic analyses GENE: cox1 or nad1 mitochondrial gene ACCESSION: GenBank accession number INHS CATALOG NO: Illinois Natural History Survey Mollusk Collection Catalog number WATERBODY: waterbody where specimen was collected PUTATIVE SPECIES: species determination based on morphological characters prior to genetic analysis Phylogenetic sequence data (.nex files) were aligned using BioEdit (Hall, T.A. 1999.

*This is the third version of the dataset*. New changes in this 3rd version: <i>1.replaces simulations where the initial condition consists of a sinusoidal channel with topographic perturbations with simulations where the initial condition consists of a sinusoidal channel without topographic perturbations. These simulations better illustrate the transformation of a nondendritic network into a dendritic one. 2. contains two additional simulations showing how total domain size affects the landscape's dynamism. 3. changes dataset title to reflect the publication's title</i> This dataset contains data from 18 simulations using a landscape evolution model. A landscape evolution model simulates how uplift and rock incision shape the Earth's (or other planets) surface. To date, most landscape evolution models exhibit "extreme memory" (paper: https://doi.org/10.1029/2019GL083305 and dataset: https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-4484338_V1). Extreme memory in landscape evolution models causes initial conditions to be unrealistically preserved. This dataset contains simulations from a new landscape evolution model that incorporates a sub-model that allows bedrock channels to erode laterally. With this addition, the landscapes no longer exhibit extreme memory. Initial conditions are erased over time, and the landscapes tend towards a dynamic steady state instead of a static one. The model with lateral erosion is named LEM-wLE (Landscape Evolution Model with Lateral Erosion) and the model without lateral erosion is named LEM-woLE (Landscape Evolution Model without Lateral Erosion). There are 16 folders in total. Here are the descriptions: <i>>LEM-woLE_simulations:</i> This folder contains simulations using LEM-woLE. Inside the folder are 5 subfolders containing 100 elevation rasters, 100 drainage area rasters, and 100 plots showing the slope-area relationship. Elevation depicts the height of the landscape, and drainage area represents a contributing area that is upslope. Each folder corresponds to a different initial condition. Driver files and code for these simulations can be found at https://github.com/jeffskwang/LEM-wLE. <i>>MOVIE_S#_data:</i> There are 13 data folders that contain raster data for 13 simulations using LEM-wLE. Inside each folder are 1000 elevation rasters, 1000 drainage area rasters, and 1000 plots showing the slope-area relationship. Driver files and code for these simulations can be found at https://github.com/jeffskwang/LEM-wLE. <i>>movies_mp4_format:</i> For each data folder there are 3 movies generated that show elevation (a), drainage area (b), and erosion rates (c). These files are formatted in the mp4 format and are best viewed using VLC media player (https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html). <i>>movies_wmv_format:</i> This folder contains the same movies as the "movies_mp4_format" folder, but they are in a wmv format. These movies can be viewed using Windows media player or other Windows platform movie software. The associated publication for this dataset has not yet been published, and we will update this description with a link when it is.

Data were used to analyze patterns in predator-specific nest predation on shrubland birds in Illinois as related to landscape composition at multiple landscape scales. Data were used in a Journal of Applied Ecology research paper of the same name. Data were collected between 2011 and 2014 at sites in east-central and northeastern Illinois, USA as part of a Ph.D. research project on the relationship between avian nest predation and landscape characteristics, and how nest predation affects adult and nestling bird behavior.
