This dataset accompanies an article published in the journal Bioacoustics: "Tradeoffs in sound quality and cost for passive acoustic devices", https://doi.org/10.1080/09524622.2023.2290715. The dataset contains measurements for acoustic call files for free-flying bats simultaneously recorded on both Audiomoth and Anabat Swift passive acoustic recording devices in a conservation area in northeastern Missouri, USA. We paired calls from the two devices and compared indicators of recording quality measured in a proprietary program (Bat Call Identification Software). The dataset also contains a file enumerating the proportions of calls classified as low frequency, mid frequency, or Myotis (three phonic groups) for each type of recording device. The data were used to compare the quality and sensitivity of the two devices. The scripts for modeling procedures and figures are included in the dataset.

This dataset contains temperature measurements in four different bat box designs deployed in central Indiana, USA from May to September 2018. Hourly environmental data (temperature, solar radiation, and wind speed) are also included for days and hours sampled. Bat box temperature data were used as inputs in a free program, GNU Octave, to assess design performance with respect to suitability indices for endothermic metabolism and pup development. Scripts are included in the dataset.

A two-year field study was conducted to test the hypothesis that biochar application increases inorganic soil N availability during maize growth, leading to higher grain yields and N recovery efficiency while reducing the risk of N leaching following harvest. Four N fertilizer rates (0, 90, 179, and 269 kg ha-1 as urea ammonium nitrate solution) were applied with or without biochar (10 Mg ha-1) before maize planting each year. This dataset contains selected summary statistics (average and standard deviation) on soil and plant measurements. This file package also includes a readme.txt file that describes the data in detail, including attribute descriptions.

The included files were used to reconstruct the phylogeny of Coelidiinae using combined morphological and molecular data, estimate divergence times and reconstruct ancestral biogeographic areas as described in the manuscript submitted for publication. The file “Coelidiinae_dna_morph_combined.nex” is a text file in standard NEXUS format used by various phylogenetic analysis programs. This file includes the aligned and concatenated nucleotide sequences or five gene regions (mitochondrial COI and 16S, and nuclear 28S D-2, histone H3, histone H2A and wingless) indicated by standard “ACGT” nucleotide symbols with missing data indicated by “?”, and morphological character data as defined in Table S3 used in the analyses. The data partitions are indicated toward the end of the file by ranges of numbers (“charset Subset 1 – 4” for the DNA data and “charset morph” for the morphological characters) followed by commands for the phylogenetic analysis program MrBayes that specify the model settings for each data partition. Detailed data on species included (as rows) in the dataset, including collection localities and GenBank accession numbers are provided in the Table_S1_Specimen_information.csv file. The file "TablesS2-S4.pdf" lists the primers used for polymerase chain reaction amplification, the list of morphological character definitions, and the morphological character matrix. The file “RASP_Distribution.csv” contains a list of the species included in the phylogenetic dataset (first column) and a code (second column) indicating their distributions as follows: (A) Oriental, (B) Palaearctic, (C) Australian, (D) Afrotropical, (E) Neotropical, and (F) Nearctic. More than one letter indicates that the species occurs in more than one region. The file "infile_for_BEAST.txt" is the input file in XML format used for the molecular divergence time analysis using the program BEAST (Bayesian Evolutionary Analysis by Sampling Trees) as described in the Methods section of the manuscript. This file includes comments that document the steps of the analysis.

Three datasets: species_abundance_data, species_traits, and environmental_data. The three datasets were collected in the Fortuna Forest Reserve (8°45′ N, 82°15′ W) and Palo Seco Protected Forest (8°45′ N, 82°13′ W) located in western Panama. The two reserves support humid to super-humid rainforests, according to Holdridge (1947). The species_abundance_data and species_traits datasets were collected across 15 subplots of 25 m2 in 12 one-hectare permanent plots distributed across the two reserves. The subplots were spaced 20 m apart along three 5 m wide transects, each 30 m apart. Please read Prada et al. (2017) for details on the environmental characteristics of the study area.

The dataset includes the survey results about farmers’ perceptions of marginal land availability and the likelihood of a land pixel being marginal based on a machine learning model trained from the survey. Two spreadsheet files are the farmer and farm characteristics (marginal_land_survey_data_shared.xlsx), and the existing land use of marginal lands (land_use_info_sharing.xlsx). <b>Note:</b> the blank cells in these two spreadsheets mean missing values in the survey response. The GeoTiff file includes two bands, one the marginal land likelihood in the Midwestern states (0-1), the other the dominant reason of land marginality (0-5; 0 for farm size, 1 for growing season precipitation, 2 for root zone soil water capacity, 3 for average slope, 4 for growing season mean temperature, and 5 for growing season diurnal range of temperature). To read the data, please use a GIS software such as ArcGIS or QGIS.

The Nature Conservancy, Illinois, USA. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-1260194_V1 Climate change is a major environmental challenge that is likely to affect many aspects of life in Illinois, ranging from human and environmental health to the economy. Illinois is already experiencing impacts from the changing climate and, as climate change progresses and temperatures continue to rise, these impacts are expected to increase over time. This assessment takes an in-depth look at how the climate is changing now in Illinois, and how it is projected to change in the future, to provide greater clarity on how climate change could affect urban and rural communities in the state. Beyond providing an overview of anticipated climate changes, the report explores predicted effects on hydrology, agriculture, human health, and native ecosystems.

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>

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.
