This dataset includes a total of 300 images of 45 extant species of Podocarpus (Podocarpaceae) and nine images of fossil specimens of the morphogenus Podocarpidites. The goal of this dataset is to capture the diversity of morphology within the genus and create an image database for training machine learning models. The images were taken using Airyscan confocal superresolution microscopy at 630x magnification (63x/NA 1.4 oil DIC). The images are in the CZI file format. They can be opened using Zeiss propriety software (Zen, Zen lite) or open microscopy software, such as ImageJ.

This repository includes scripts and datasets for the paper, "FastMulRFS: Fast and accurate species tree estimation under generic gene duplication and loss models." Note: The results from estimating species trees with ASTRID-multi (included in this repository) are *not* included in the FastMulRFS paper. We estimated species trees with ASTRID-multi in the fall of 2019, but ASTRID-multi had an important bug fix in January 2020. Therefore, the ASTRID-multi species trees in this repository should be ignored.

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

A defining feature of the Anthropocene is the distortion of the biosphere phosphorus (P) cycle. A relatively sudden acceleration of input fluxes without a concomitant increase in output fluxes has led to net accumulation of P in the terrestrial-aquatic continuum. Over the past century, P has been mined from geological deposits to produce crop fertilizers. When P inputs are not fully removed with harvest of crop biomass, the remaining P accumulates in soils. This residual P is a uniquely anthropogenic pool of P, and its management is critical for agronomic and environmental sustainability. This dataset includes data for us to quantify residual P from different long-term managed systems. The following is the desccription of the dataset. There are 7 sheets in total. 1.

These data were used to make a predictive model of when ornate box turtles (Terrapene ornata) are likely to be above ground and at risk from fire. The data were generated using shell temperatures, soil temperatures at 0.35 m deep from known overwintering sites, and the spring and fall soil temperature inversion dates during 2019–2022 to infer if 26 individual radio-tracked turtles were above or below ground at three sites in Illinois.

This dataset contains: field study design parameters, plant performance metrics, and nitrogen cycling rates associated with a field experiment that compared nitrification rates between maize lines with and without nitrification inhibition loci nitrogen fixation rates with with and without a nitrogen fixing inoculant product. The overarching goal was to evaluate nitrogen fixation by a diazotroph inoculant and retention of nitrogen in the rhizosphere via a novel nitrification inhibition phenotype of maize.

These data are the result of analyses of the metagenome of North American bats, including 18s and 16s barcode genes designed to target microorganisms of the gut. These files are Phyloseq import files created by the DADA2 program. Each barcode gene is uploaded separately as the four files required to build a phyloseq object. For each barcode gene, the files include amplicon sequence variant (ASV) sequences, sequence tables (seqtab) which connect individual samples to the ASVs, tax tables (taxtab) which identify the taxa present as determined by a Bayesian RDP classifier, and rooted phylogenetic trees for the ASVs. Additionally, we have included a "sample_data" file which is necessary for sorting of samples across all four sequence analysis data sets by study and species. Some sample information which could identify the location of endangered species has been restricted. Multiple studies are represented in the data which can be accessed using standard methods in the Phyloseq program (e.g. For a study of bats, parasites, and gut microbiome dysregulation by Bennett, Suski, and OKeefe 2024 [in prep March 2024], study specific data can be accessed using the Study variable "DYSBIOMICS." File names include reference to the primer set used to generate them (18s primer sets: G3, G4, G6; 16s primer set: 341F3_806R5).

This file contains the delta 15N values for leaf material collected from Cyathea rojasiana tree ferns before and after fertilization using ammonium -15N chloride solution to determine whether 15N update is possible from senescent leaves. Details of the experiment are provided in the online supplement to the published paper. Briefly, In February 2022 we selected three mature C. rojasiana individuals 1-1.5m in height that had leaves rooted in the soil and one new developing (but unexpanded) leaf. For each fern, two plastic pots (10 x 10 x 12 cm) were filled with a 50:50 mixture of washed river sand and soil from the Chorro watershed. For each pot, one senescent leaf that was rooted in the soil was carefully excavated and its roots transplanted into the pot. Pots were then fertilized by adding 30 ml of a 0.02 M 15N solution of ammonium-15N chloride (98% 15N; Sigma-Aldrich 299251; St Louis, MO) to yield a target concentration of 2 µg15N cm-3 of soil. After fertilization pots were carefully enclosed within thick plastic bags, and sealed around the senescent leaf rachis to prevent leaching any of 15N from the pot to the surrounding soil. At the time of N fertilization, pinnae of the youngest fully expanded leaf were collected from each fern. One pinna was collected from the base of the leaf and one from the distal end of the leaf. In March 2022, after 28 days the roots were removed from pots and two additional leaf pinnae sampled from each fern: one from the base and one from the distal end of the youngest (now fully expanded) leaf. Leaf samples were dried for 72 hours at 60 C and then leaf lamina tissue finely ground with a bead beater. The delta 15N for each leaf sample determined at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign using a Thermo Delta V Advantage IRMS run in combination with a Costech 4010 Elemental Analyzer. Samples were run in continuous flow relative to laboratory standards that were calibrated with USGS 40, 41, and NBS 19 reference materials.

Data associated with the manuscript "Stable isotopes and diet metabarcoding reveal trophic overlap between native and invasive Banded Killifish (Fundulus diaphanus) subspecies." by Jordan H. Hartman, Mark A. Davis, Nicholas J. Iacaruso, Jeremy S. Tiemann, Eric R. Larson. For this project, we sampled six locations in Michigan and Illinois for Eastern and Western Banded Killifish and primary consumers. Using stable isotope analysis we found that Eastern Banded Killifish had higher variance in littoral dependence and trophic position than Western Banded Killifish, but both stable isotope and gut content metabarcoding analyses revealed an overlap in the diet composition and trophic position between the subspecies. This dataset provides the sampling locations, accession numbers for gut content metabarcoding data from the National Center for Biotechnology Information Sequence Read Archive, the assignment of each family used in the gut content metabarcoding analysis as littoral, pelagic, terrestrial, or parasite. and the raw stable isotope data from University of California Davis.
