Data characterize zooplankton in Shelbyville Reservoir, Illinois, United States of America. Zooplankton were sampled with a conical zooplankton net (0.5m diameter mouth) when water was deeper than 2 m and by grab sample when water was shallower. Zooplankton samples were concentrated and subsampled with a Hensen-Stempel pipette following protocols described in Detmer et al. (2019). Zooplankton were identified to the lowest feasible taxonomic unit according to Pennak (1989) and Thorp and Covich (2001) and were enumerated in a 1 mL Sedgewick-Rafter cell. Subsamples were analyzed until at least 200 individuals were enumerated from each site.were counted across for each of the three main taxonomic groups (cladocerans, copepods, and rotifers). Given the variation in zooplankton concentrations at each site, this process often lead to far more than 200 individuals being counted (x̄ = 269, min = 200, max = 487). A summary of the sample size from each site can be found in Supplementary Table S2. Abundances were corrected for volume of water filtered. For rare taxa (< 20 individuals per sample), all individuals were measured for length. For abundant taxa, length measurements were collected on the first 20 organisms of each abundant taxon encountered in a subsample. Dry mass was calculated from equations for microcrustaceans, rotifers, and Chaoborus sp. (Rosen ,1981; Botrell et al., 1976; Dumont and Balvay, 1979).

An online and paper knowledge, attitudes, and practices survey on ticks and tick-borne diseases (TBD) was distributed to farmers in Illinois during summer 2020 to spring 2022 (paper version titled Final Draft Farmer KAP_v.SoftCopy_Revised.docx). These are the raw data associated with that survey and the survey questions used (FarmerTickKAPdata.csv, data dictionary in Data Description.docx). We have added calculated values (columns 286 to end, code for calculation in FarmerKAPvariableCalculation.R), including: the tick knowledge score, TBD knowledge score, and total knowledge score, which are the sum of the total number of correct answers in each category, and score percent, which are the proportion of correct answers in each category.

We developed a new application of isotopic gas exchange which couples a tunable diode laser absorption spectroscope (TDL) with a leaf gas exchange system, analyzing leakiness through induction of C4 photosynthesis on dark to high-light transitions. The youngest fully expanded leaf was measured on 40-45 day-old maize(B73) and sorghum (Tx430). Detail definition of each variable in raw Li-6400XT and Li-6800 (in "Original_data_AND_Data_processing_code.zip") is summarized in: <a href="https://www.licor.com/env/support/LI-6800/topics/symbols.html#const">https://www.licor.com/env/support/LI-6800/topics/symbols.html#const</a>

This dataset includes data on soil properties, soil N pools, and soil N fluxes presented in the manuscript, "Refining the role of nitrogen mineralization in mycorrhizal nutrient syndromes". Please refer to that publication for details about methodologies used to generate these data and for the experimental design. For this verison 2, we added specific gross nitrogen mineralization rates (ugN/gOM/d), microbial biomass carbon (ugC/gdw), microbial biomass nitrogen (ugN/gdw) and microbial biomass C:N ratios to the newest version of the data set. Additionally, we updated values for gross nitrogen mineralization, microbial NO3 assimilation and microbial NH4 assimilation to reflect slight changes in data processing. Those changes are reflected in "220829_All data_repository.csv". "220829_nitrogen_mineralization_readme.txt " is updated readme for the new file. The other 2 files begin with “220426_” are older version and same as in V1.

This dataset contains Raman spectra, each acquired from an individual, living, primary murine cell belonging to one of the six most immature hematopoietic cell populations found in the body: hematopoietic stem cell (HSC), mutipotent progenitor 1 (MPP1), multipotent progenitor 2 (MPP2), multipotent progenitor 3 (MPP3), common lymphoid progenitor, common myeloid progenitor (CLP). These spectra are useful for identifying spectral signatures that are characteristic of each hematopoietic stem or early progenitor cell population. *NOTE: __MACOSX folder and files start with “._[file name]” found in "Raman spectra of single cells text files.zip" were created by the computer operation system, in unreadable format, which are not part of the data and can be removed/ignored when using the data.

This data set documents bat activity (counts per detector-night per phonic group) and bat diversity (number of bat species per detector-night) in relation to distance to the nearest forested corridor in a row crop agriculture dominated landscape and in relation to relative crop pest abundance. This data set was used to assess if bats were homogeneously distributed over a near-uninterrupted agricultural landscape and to assess the importance of forested corridors and the presence of pest species on their distribution across the landscape. Data was collected with 50 AudioMoth bat detectors along 10 transects, with each transect having 5 detectors. The transects started at a forest corridor and extended out for 4 km into uninterrupted row crop agriculture. Pest abundance was extrapolated from data collected in the same county during the same time as the study. Potentially important weather covariates were extracted from the nearest operational weather station.

This dataset contains nucleotide sequences of 16S rRNA gene from phytoplasmas and other bacteria detected in phloem-feeding insects (Hemiptera, Auchenorrhyncha). The datasets were used to compare traditional Sanger sequencing with a next-generation sequencing method, Anchored Hybrid Enrichment (AHE) for detecting and characterizing phytoplasmas in insect DNA samples. The file “Trivellone_etal_SangerSequencing.fas”, comprising 1397 positions (the longest sequence), includes 35 not aligned bacterial 16S rRNA sequences (16 phytoplasmas and 19 other bacterial strains) yielded using Sanger sequencing. The file “Trivellone_etal_AHEmethod1.fas” includes 34 not aligned bacterial 16S rRNA sequences (28 phytoplasmas and 6 other bacterial strains) and it contains 1530 positions (the longest sequence). Each sequence was assembled using assembled based on ABySS v2.1.0 pipeline. The file “Trivellone_etal_AHEmethod2.fas” includes 31 not aligned bacterial 16S rRNA sequences (27 phytoplasmas and 4 other bacterial strains) and it contains 1530 positions (the longest sequence).

This dataset includes five files developed using the procedures described in the article 'Developing County-level Data of Nitrogen Fertilizer and Manure Inputs for Corn Production in the United States' and Supplemental Information published in the Journal of Cleaner Production in 2021. Citation: Xia, Yushu, Hoyoung Kwon, and Michelle Wander. "Developing county-level data of nitrogen fertilizer and manure inputs for corn production in the United States." Journal of Cleaner Production 309 (2021): e126957. Brief method: The fertilizer and manure inputs for corn were generated with a top-down approach by assigning county-level total N inputs reported by USGS to different crops using state- and county-level survey data. The corn N needs were estimated using empirical extension-based equations coupled with soil and environmental covariates. The estimates of fertilizer N inputs were further refined for corn grain and silage production at the county level and gap-filling (using state-level averages) was carried out to generate final files for U.S. county-level N inputs. The dataset is provided in an alternative format in Google Earth Engine: https://code.earthengine.google.com/13a0078e7ee727bc001e045ad0e8c6fc

This dataset contain information for the paper "Changes in neuropeptide prohormone genes among Cetartio-dactyla livestock and wild species associated with evolution and domestication" Veterinary Sciences, MDPI. Protein sequences were predicted using GeneWise for 98 neuropeptide prohormone genes from publicly available genomes of 118 Cetartiodactyla species. All predictions (CetartiodactylaSequences2022.zip) were manually verified. Sequences were aligned within each prohormone using MAFFT (MDPImultalign2022.zip includes multiple sequence alignment of all species available for each prohormone). Phylogenetic gene trees were constructed using PhyML and the species tree was constructed using ASTRAL (MDPItree2022.zip).
