In a set of field studies across four years, the effect of self-shading on photosynthetic performance in lower canopy sorghum leaves was studied at sites in Champaign County, IL. Photosynthetic parameters in upper and lower canopy leaves, carbon assimilation, electron transport, stomatal conductance, and activity of three C4-specific photosynthetic enzymes, were compared within a genetically diverse range of accessions varying widely in canopy architecture and thereby in the degree of self-shading. Accessions with erect leaves and high light transmission through the canopy are henceforth referred to as ‘erectophile’ and those with low leaf erectness, ‘planophile’. In the final year of the study, bundle sheath leakiness in erectophile and planophile accessions was also compared.

Adey_Larson_Behavior.csv: Results of behavioral assays for rusty crayfish Faxonius rusticus collected from six lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin in summer 2018. Crayfish_ID is an individual crayfish ID or identifier that matches to individuals in Adey_Larson_Isotope. Collection is how organisms were collected (trapped = baited trapping, snorkel = by hand). Lake is the study lake crayfish were collected from. Length is crayfish carapace length in mm. CPUE is crayfish catch-per-unit effort from baited trapping in that lake during summer 2018. Shelter_Occupancy, Exploration, Feeding_Snail, Feeding_Detritus, Feeding_Crayfish, and Aggressiveness are behavioral assay scores for individual crayfish. Shelter_Occupancy is frequency of observation intervals (12 maximum) in which crayfish were observed in shelter over a 12 hour period. Exploration is time for crayfish to explore a new area measured in seconds (maximum possible time 1200 seconds or 20 minutes). Feeding_Snail, Feeding_Detritus, and Feeding_Crayfish is the time for crayfish to take a food item (snail, detritus, or snail in the presence of another crayfish) measured in seconds (maximum possibe time 1200 seconds or 20 minutes). Aggressiveness is the response to an approach with a novel object scored as a fast retreat (-2), slow retreat (-1), no visible response (0), approach without threat display (1), approach with threat display (2), interaction with closed chelae (3), or interaction with open chelae (4). Three repeated aggressiveness measures were made per individual (Aggresiveness1, Aggresiveness2, Aggresiveness3), which were summed for inclusion in subsequent analyses (Aggresiveness_Sum). More detailed behavioral assay methods can be found in Adey 2019 Masters thesis. Adey_Larson_Isotope.csv: Stable isotope (13C, 15N) values for rusty crayfish Faxonius rusticus and snail or mussel primary consumers from six lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin collected during summer 2018. Crayf is an individual crayfish ID or identifier that matches to the same individual crayfish in Adey_Larson_Behavior. Lake is the study lake. Collection is how organisms were collected (trapped = baited trapping, snorkel = by hand). Sample type indicates whether isotope values are for crayfish, snail, or mussel. d13C and d15N are stable isotope values.

Total nitrogen leaching rates were calculated over the Mississippi Atchafalaya River Basin (MARB) using an integrated economic-biophysical modeling approach. Land allocation for corn production and total nitrogen application rates were calculated for crop reporting districts using the Biofuel and Environmental Policy Analysis Model (BEPAM) for 5 RFS2 policy scenarios. These were used as input in the Integrated BIosphere Simulator-Agricultural Version (Agro-IBIS) and the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model with Biogeochemistry (THMB) to calculate the nitrogen loss. Land allocation and total nitrogen application simulations were simulated for the period 2016-2030 for 303 crop reporting districts (https://www.nass.usda.gov/Data_and_Statistics/County_Data_Files/Frequently_Asked_Questions/county_list.txt). The final 2030 values are reported here. Both are stored in csv files. Units for land allocation are million ha and nitrogen application are million kg. The nitrogen leaching rates were modeled with a spatial resolution of 5' x 5' using the North American Datum of 1983 projection and stored in NetCDF files. The 30-year average is calculated over the last 30 years of the 45 years being simulated. Leaching rates are calculated in kg-N/ha.

Dataset associated with "Hiding in plain sight: genetic confirmation of putative Louisiana Fatmucket Lampsilis hydiana in Illinois" as submitted to Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation by Stodola et al. Images are from cataloged specimens from the Illinois Natural History Survey (INHS) Mollusk Collection in Champaign, Illinois that were used for genetic research. File names indicate the species as confirmed in Stodola et al. (i.e., Lampsilis siliquoidea or Lampsilis hydiana) followed by the INHS Mollusk Collection catalog number, followed by the individual specimen number, followed by shell view (interior or exterior). If no specimen number is noted in the file name, there is only one specimen for that catalog number. For example: Lsiliquoidea_46515_1_2_3_exterior. Images were created by photographing specimens on a metric grid in an OrTech Photo-e-Box Plus with a Nikon D610 single lens reflex camera using a 60mm lens. Post-processing of images (cropping, image rotation, and auto contrast) occurred in Adobe Photoshop and saved as TIFF files using no image compression, interleaved pixel order, and IBM PC Byte Order. One additional partial lot, INHS Mollusk Catalog No. 37059 (shown with both interior and exterior view in one image), is included for reference but was not genetically sequenced. A .csv file contains an index of all specimens photographed. SPECIES: species confirmed using genetic analyses GENE: cox1 or nad1 mitochondrial gene ACCESSION: GenBank accession number INHS CATALOG NO: Illinois Natural History Survey Mollusk Collection Catalog number WATERBODY: waterbody where specimen was collected PUTATIVE SPECIES: species determination based on morphological characters prior to genetic analysis Phylogenetic sequence data (.nex files) were aligned using BioEdit (Hall, T.A. 1999.

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.
