This dataset provides files for use in analysis of human land preference across Australasia, and in a localized analysis of land preference in Laos and Vietnam. All files can be imported into ArcGIS for visualization, and re-analyzed using the open source Maxent species distribution modeling program. CSV files contain known human presence sites for model validation. ASC files contain geographically coded environmental data for mean annual temperature and mean annual precipitation during the Last Glacial Maximum, as well as downward slope data. All ASC files are in the WGS 1984 Mercator map projection for visualization in ArcGIS and can be opened as text files in text editors supporting large file sizes.

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.

These data were collected for an experiment examining effects of neonicotinoid (clothianidin) presence on hover fly (Diptera: Syrphidae) behavior. Hover flies of two species (Eristalis arbustorum and Toxomerus marginatus) were offered a choice to feed on artificial flowers laced with sucrose solution that was either contaminated (CLO) or not contaminated (CON) with clothianidin. Two different concentrations of clothianidin in 0.5 M sucrose solution were tested: 2.5 ppb and 150 ppb. We conducted four sets of 10 trials, each trial set examining a different combination of species and clothianidin dose. Across 6 hours of video for each trial we recorded 1) number of visits to each flower that resulted in feeding, and 2) amount of time spent feeding during each visit. We found that while neither species fed significantly longer on either of the solutions, E. arbustorum appeared to avoid flowers with clothianidin particularly at high rates. In the paper, we attribute this avoidance response, partially, to hover fly-visible spectral differences between the two flower choices and discuss potential implications for field and lab-based studies. In the enclosed zip file we have included all data for this project and code scripts from R. * Note: Data folder contains 4 files (instead of 6 as mentioned in Readme): e.tenax_photoreceptors.csv; hoverfly_data_UPDATE.csv; number_visits_UPDATE.csv; and Original 2018 hover fly choice test data_Clem2020.xlsx

The Delt_Comb.NEX text file contains the original data used in the phylogenetic analyses of Zahniser & Dietrich, 2013 (European Journal of Taxonomy, 45: 1-211). The text file is marked up according to the standard NEXUS format commonly used by various phylogenetic analysis software packages. The file will be parsed automatically by a variety of programs that recognize NEXUS as a standard bioinformatics file format. The first nine lines of the file indicate the file type (Nexus), that 152 taxa were analyzed, that a total of 3971 characters were analyzed, the format of the data, and specification for two symbols used in the dataset. There are four datasets separated into blocks, one each for: 28S rDNA gene, Histone H3 gene, morphology, and insertion/deletion characters scored based on the alignment of the 28S rDNA dataset. Descriptions of the morphological characters and more details on the species and specimens included in the dataset are provided in the publication using this dataset. A text file, Delt_morph_char.txt, is available here that states the morphological characters and characters states that were scored in the Delt_Comb.NEX dataset. The original DNA sequence data are available from NCBI GenBank under the accession numbers indicated in publication. Chromatogram files for each sequencing read are available from the first author upon request.

The dataset consists of two types of data: the estimate of land productivity (the maximum productivity, MP) and the estimate of land that has low productivity for any major crops planted in the Contiguous United States and then may be available for growing bioenergy crops (the marginal land, ML). All data items are in GeoTiff format, under the World Geodetic System (WGS) 84 project, and with a resolution of 0.0020810045 degree (~250 m). The MP values are calculated based on machine learning model estimated yields of major crops in the CONUS, and its expected value (MP_mean.tif), and associated uncertainty (MP_IDP.tif). The ML availability data have two versions: a deterministic version and a version with uncertainty. The deterministic MLs are determined as the land pixels with expected MP values falling in the range defined in the following criteria, and the MLs with uncertainty are determined as the probability that the MP value of a land pixel falls in the range defined in the following criteria: Criteria_____Description S1________ Current crop and pasture land with MP <= P50 S2________ Current crop and pasture land with MP <= P25 S3________ S1 + current grass and shrub land with P25 < MP < P50 S4________ S2 + current grass and shrub land with P10 < MP < P25 Economic__ Current crop and pasture land with potential profitability < 0 Here P10, P25 and P50 are the 10th, 25th and 50th percentile of crop MP values

We summarize peer reviewed literature reporting associations between for three soil quality indicators (SQIs) (β-glucosidase (BG), fluorescein diacetate (FDA) hydrolysis, and permanganate oxidizable carbon (POXC)) and crop yield and greenhouse gas emissions. Peer-reviewed articles published between January of 1990 and May 2018 were searched using the Thomas Reuters Web of Science database (Thomas Reuters, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and Google Scholar to identify studies reporting results for: “β-glucosidase”, “permanganate oxidizable carbon”, “active carbon”, “readily oxidizable carbon”, or “fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis”, together with one or more of the following: “crop yield”, “productivity”, “greenhouse gas’, “CO2”, “CH4”, or “N2O”. Meta-data for records include the following descriptor variables and covariates useful for scoring function development: 1) identifying factors for the study site (location, duration of the experiment), 2) soil textural class, pH, and SOC, 3) depth of soil sampling, 4) units used in published works (i.e.: equivalent mass, concentration), 5) SQI abundances and measured ecosystem functions, and 6) summary statistics for correlation between SQIs and functions (yield and greenhouse gas emissions). *Note: Blank values in tables are considered unreported data.

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.
