Dataset for F2F events of honeybees. F2F events are defined as face-to-face encounters of two honeybees that are close in distance and facing each other but not connected by the proboscis, thus not engaging in trophallaxis. The first and the second columns show the unique id's of honeybees participating in F2F events. The third column shows the time at which the F2F event started while the fourth column shows the time at which it ended. Each time is in the Unix epoch timestamp in milliseconds.

Filtered trophallaxis interactions for two honeybee colonies, each containing 800 worker bees and one queen. Each colony consists of bees that were administered a juvenile hormone analogy, a vehicle treatment, or a sham treatment to determine the effect of colony perturbation on the duration of trophallaxis interactions. Columns one and two display the unique identifiers for each bee involved in a particular trophallaxis exchange, and columns three and four display the Unix timestamp of the beginning/end of the interaction (in milliseconds), respectively.<br /><b>Note</b>: the queen interactions were omitted from the uploaded dataset for reasons that are described in submitted manuscript. Those bees that performed poorly are also omitted from the final dataset.

This dataset is associated with a larger manuscript published in 2022 in the Illinois Natural History Survey Bulletin that summarized the Fishes of Champaign County project from 2012-2015. With data spanning over 120 years, the Fishes of Champaign County is a comprehensive, long-term investigation into the changing fish communities of east-central Illinois. Surveys first occurred in Champaign County in the late 1880s (40 sites), with subsequent surveys in 1928–1929 (125 sites), 1959–1960 (143 sites), and 1987–1988 (141 sites). Between 2012 and 2015, we resampled 122 sites across Champaign County. The combined data from these five surveys have produced a unique perspective into not only the fish communities of the region, but also insight into in-stream habitat changes during the past 120 years. The dataset is in Microsoft Access format, with five data tables, one for each time period surveyed. Field names are self-explanatory, with some variation in data types collected during different surveys as follows: Forbes & Richardson (1880s) collected presence/absence only. Thompson & Hunt (1928-1929) collected abundance only, Larimore & Smith (1959-1960) collected length and weight for some samples, but only presence/absence at others. In some cases, fish of the same species were weighed in bulk, with the fields “LOW” and “HIGH” indicating the lower and upper limits of total length in the batch, and weight indicating the gross weight of all fish in the batch. Larimore and Bayley (1987-1988) collected length and weight for all surveys, and Sherwood and Stein (2012-2015) collected length and weight for all surveys except for cases where extremely abundant single species where subsampled. Lengths are reported in millimeters, and weight in grams. Two lookup tables provide information about species codes used in the data tables and sample site location and notes.

Data associated with the manuscript "Eastern banded killifish (Fundulus diaphanus diaphanus) in Lake Michigan and connected watersheds: the invasion of a non-native subspecies" by Jordan H. Hartman, Jeremy S. Tiemann, Joshua L. Sherwood, Philip W. Willink, Kurt T. Ash, Mark A. Davis, and Eric R. Larson. For this project, we sampled 109 locations in Lake Michigan and connected waters and found 821 total banded killifish. Using mitochondrial DNA analysis, we found 31 eastern and 25 western haplotypes which split our banded killifish into 422 eastern banded killifish and 398 western banded killifish. This dataset provides the sampling locations, banded killifish haplotypes, frequency of those haplotypes per location, accession numbers in GenBank, and the associated mitochondrial DNA sequences.

Agriculture is the largest user of water in the United States. Yet, we do not understand the spatially resolved sources of irrigation water use by crop. The goal of this study is to estimate crop-specific irrigation water use from surface water withdrawals, total groundwater withdrawals, and nonrenewable groundwater depletion for the Continental United States. Water use by source is provided for 20 crops and crop groups from 2008 to 2020 at the county spatial resolution. These results present the first national-scale assessment of irrigation by crop, county, water source, and year. In total, there are nearly 2.5 million data points in this dataset (3,142 counties; 13 years; 3 water sources; and 20 crops). This dataset supports the paper by Ruess et al (2023) in Water Resources Research, https://doi.org/10.1029/2022WR032804. When using, please cite as: Ruess, P.J., Konar, M., Wanders, N. , & Bierkens, M. (2023).

The effect of pesticide contamination on arthropod biomass and diversity in simulated prairie restorations depended on arthropod feeding guild (e.g., predator, herbivore, or pollinator). The pesticides used in this study were the neonicotinoid insecticide clothianidin and the phthalimide fungicide captan. This dataset includes two data files. The first contains information about the study sites ("plots") and pesticide treatments. The second contains information about arthropod biomass and morphospecies richness separated by feeding guild for each month-plot combination. R code in an R Markdown file for the analysis and data presentation in the associated publication is also provided. Detected effects included: predator biomass was 66% lower in plots treated with clothianidin, and this effect persisted across the growing season; the impact on herbivore biomass appeared to be inconsistent, with biomass being 51% lower with clothianidin in June but no detected difference in July or August; herbivore morphospecies richness was 12% lower in plots treated with both clothianidin and captain; pollinators appeared to be unaffected by clothianidin; and pollinator biomass increased by 71% when captan was applied to a plot.

Non-carnivore and non-prey species (humans, domestic species, avian species, etc.) were excluded from this dataset. All detections of each species at a camera within 30 minutes have been combined to 1 detection (only first detection within that 30 minutes kept) to avoid pseudoreplication.

One of the newest types of multimedia involves body-connected interfaces, usually termed haptics. Haptics may use stylus-based tactile interfaces, glove-based systems, handheld controllers, balance boards, or other custom-designed body-computer interfaces. How well do these interfaces help students learn Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)? We conducted an updated review of learning STEM with haptics, applying meta-analytic techniques to 21 published articles reporting on 53 effects for factual, inferential, procedural, and transfer STEM learning. This deposit includes the data extracted from those articles and comprises the raw data used in the meta-analytic analyses.

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.
