Oncopeltus fasciatus hybrid genome assembly 1.0

    The milkweed bug, *Oncopeltus fasciatus*, was sequenced as part of the i5k pilot project from Baylor College of Medicine (Illumina data). To augment those resources, we present here a hybrid genome assembly with low coverage PacBio data, assembled with PBJelly: the *Oncopeltus fasciatus* Hybrid Genome Assembly v1.0.

    Data from: Range size, local abundance and effect inform species descriptions at scales relevant for local conservation practice

      This study describes how metrics defining invasions may be more broadly applied to both native and invasive species in vegetation management, supporting their relevance to local scales of species conservation and management. A sample monitoring dataset is used to compare range size, local abundance and effect as well as summary calculations of landscape penetration (range size × local abundance) and impact (landscape penetration × effect) for native and invasive species in the mixed-grass plant community of western North Dakota, USA.

      Data from: Data for the calculation of an indicator of the comprehensiveness of conservation of useful wild plants

        The datasets and code presented in this Data in Brief article are related to the research article entitled "Comprehensiveness of conservation of useful wild plants: an operational indicator for biodiversity and sustainable development targets". These data facilitate indicator assessments and serve as a baseline against which future calculations of the indicator can be measured. The data can also contribute to other species distribution modeling, ecological research, and conservation analysis purposes.

        Data from: The downed and dead wood inventory of forests in the United States

          The Forest Inventory and Analysis program of the United States (US) Forest Service has conducted an annual downed dead wood (DDW) inventory on all coterminous US forest land since 2002 (~1 plot per 38,850 ha), with a sample intensification occurring since 2012 (~1 plot per 19,425 ha). The data are organized according to DDW components and by sampling information which can all be linked to a multitude of auxiliary information in the national database.

          RF-CLASS: Remote-sensing-based Flood Crop Loss Assessment Service System

            The Remote-sensing-based Flood Crop Loss Assessment Service System (RF-CLASS) is an Earth Observation (EO) based flood crop loss assessment cyber-service system operated by the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS), George Mason University. RF-CLASS supports flood-related crop statistics and insurance decision-making.

            Uniform Soybean Tests, Northern Region

              The Uniform Soybean Tests, Northern Region, in place since 1941, evaluate yield, disease resistance, and quality traits of public breeding lines from northern states of the USA and Canadian provinces. The annual reports which compile the test results (PDF format) are available, and new reports are added annually.

              Uniform Soybean Tests, Southern States

                The Uniform Soybean Tests, Southern States, in place since 1943, evaluate yield, disease resistance, and quality traits of public breeding lines from the southern states of the USA. The annual reports which compile the test results (PDF format) are available, and new reports are added annually.

                Data from: Quality controlled research weather data – USDA-ARS, Bushland, Texas

                  The dataset contains 15-minute mean weather data from the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU) research weather station, Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) for all days in 2016. The data are from sensors deployed at standard heights over grass that is irrigated and mowed during the growing season to reference evapotranspiration standards.
