Bee movement between habitat patches in a naturally fragmented ecosystem depended on species, patch, and matrix variables. Using a mark-recapture methodology in the naturally fragmented Ozark glade ecosystem, we assessed the importance of bee size, nesting biology, the distance between patches (e.g., isolation), and nesting and floral resources in habitat patches and the surrounding matrix on bee movement. This dataset includes seven data files, three R code files, and a QGIS tool. Three of the data files include information collected at the study sites with regard to bees and matrix and patch characteristics. The other four data files are spatial files used to quantify the characteristics of the forest canopy between the study sites and the edge-to-edge distances between the study sites. R code in the R Markdown file recreates the analysis and data presentation for the associated publication. R script files contain processes for calculating some of the explanatory variables used in the analysis. The QGIS tool can be used as the first step to obtaining average values from a raster file where the cells are large relative to the areas of interest (AOI) that you would like to characterize. The second step is contained in one of the aforementioned R scripts. Detected effects included: Larger bees were more likely to move between patches. Bee movement was less likely as the distance between patches increased. However, relatively short distances (~50 m) inhibited movement more than our a priori expectations. Bees were unlikely to move away from home patches with abundant and diverse floral and below-ground nesting resources. When home patches were less resource-rich, bee movement depended on the characteristics of the away patch or the matrix. In these cases, bees were more likely to move to away patches with greater below-ground nesting and floral resources. Matrix habitats with more available floral and below-ground nesting resources appear to impede movement to neighboring patches, potentially because they already provide supplemental resources for bees.

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.

This data set is related to the SoyFACE experiments, which are open-air agricultural climate change experiments that have been conducted since 2001. The fumigation experiments take place at the SoyFACE farm and facility in Champaign County, Illinois during the growing season of each year, typically between June and October. - The <i>"SoyFACE Plot Information 2001 to 2021"</i> file contains information about each year of the SoyFACE experiments, including the fumigation treatment type (CO2, O3, or a combination treatment), the crop species, the plots (also referred to as 'rings' and labeled with numbers between 2 and 31) used in each experiment, important experiment dates, and the target concentration levels or 'setpoints' for CO2 and O3 in each experiment. - This data set includes files with minute readings of the fumigation levels (<i>"SoyFACE 1-Minute Fumigation Data Files"</i> folder) from the SoyFACE experiments. The <i>"Soyface 1-Minute Fumigation Data Files"</i> folder contains sub-folders for each year of the experiments, each of which contains sub-folders for each ring used in that year's experiments. This data set also includes hourly data files for the fumigation experiments (<i>"SoyFACE Hourly Fumigation Data Files"</i> folder) created from the 1-minute files, and hourly ambient/weather data files for each year of the experiments (<i>"Hourly Weather and Ambient Data Files"</i> folder). The ambient CO2 and O3 data are collected at SoyFACE, and the weather data are collected from the SURFRAD and WARM weather stations located near the SoyFACE farm. - The <i>"Fumigation Target Percentages"</i> file shows how much of the time the CO2 and O3 fumigation levels are within a 10 or 20 percent margin of the target levels when the fumigation system is turned on. - The <i>"Matlab Files"</i> folder contains custom code (Aspray, E.K.) that was used to clean the <i>"SoyFACE 1-Minute Fumigation Data"</i> files and to generate the <i>"SoyFACE Hourly Fumigation Data"</i> and <i>"Fumigation Target Percentages"</i> files. Code information can be found in the <i>"SoyFACE Hourly Fumigation Data Explanation"</i> file. - Finally, the <i>" * Explanation"</i> files contain information about the column names, units of measurement, and other pertinent information for each data file. *<b>NOTE:</b> We have identified some files in the “SoyFACE 1-Minute Fumigation Data Files” folder in our SoyFACE data set submission that were not downloaded properly - the files were present in the folder, but the actual files were empty. V3 ensures that there are no longer any empty files in the data set.

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.

The Morrow Plots at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are the longest-running continuous experimental plots in the Americas. In continuous operation since 1876, the plots were established to explore the impact of crop rotation and soil treatment on corn crop yields. In 2018, The Morrow Plots Data Curation Working Group began to identify, collect and curate the various data records created over the history of the experiment. The resulting data table published here includes planting, treatment and yield data for the Morrow Plots since 1888. Please see the included codebook for a detailed explanation of the data sources and their content. This dataset will be updated as new yield data becomes available. *NOTE: While digitized and accessed through IDEALS, the physical copy of the field notebook: <a href="https://archon.library.illinois.edu/archives/index.php?p=collections/controlcard&id=11846">Morrow Plots Notebook, 1876-1913, 1967</a> is also held at the University of Illinois Archives.

The compiled datasets include county-level variables used for simulating miscanthus and switchgrass production in 2287 counties across the rainfed US including 5-year (2012-2016) averaged growing season degree days (GDD), 5-year (2012-2016) averaged growing season cumulative precipitation, National Commodity Crop Productivity Index (NCCPI) values, regional dummies (only for miscanthus), the regional-level random effect of the yield response function, N price, land cash rent, the first year fixed cost (only for switchgrass), and separate datasets for simulating an alternative model assuming a constant N rate. The GAMS codes are used to run the simulation to obtain the main results including the age-varying profit-maximizing N rate, biomass yields, and annual profits for miscanthus and switchgrass production across counties in the rainfed US. The STATA codes are used to merge and analyze simulation results and create summary statistics tables and key figures.
