The Catálogo Taxonômico da Fauna do Brasil (Taxonomic Catalog of the Fauna of Brazil) is the result of the effort by more than 500 zoologists to document all animal species that inhabit the Brazilian territory. The database on the subfamily Cryptocephalinae is authored by world…
The Weevils of North America (WoNA) (http://symbiota4.acis.ufl.edu/scan/portal/checklists/checklist.php?cl=1) is an emerging resource for occurrence information, habitus photographs, legacy descriptions, and interactive identification keys for the almost 400 genera and 3300 species of weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) in North America.
The Cryptocephalinae of the World (http://camptosomata.myspecies.info/) serves to maintain images, updated classification, and bibliography of cryptocephaline leaf beetles. Currently, focus is largely on Stegnocephala, New World Cryptocephalus, and Fulcidacini; however, with time and continued collaboration we hope to build upon this work. Images are…
Whole Genome Structural Analysis of Caribbean hair sheep reveals quantitative link to West African Ancestry
Illumina Ovine 50K data from West African, St Croix, and Bergamesca sheep used in conjunction with data from The International Sheep Genome Consortium to determine the ancestry/origin of Caribbean hair sheep.
Effects of tannin in dairy cow diets and land application of manure on soil gas fluxes and nitrogen dynamics
This experiment was designed to determine if tannin concentration and nitrogen (N) content of field-applied dairy cow manure influences greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from soil, soil N mineralization, and plant productivity. The data presented include experimental design, soil physical characteristics, gas fluxes, soil nitrogen at 0-10 cm depth, soil nitrogen at 10-20 cm depth, chemical characteristics of dairy manure, and crop yield and biomass characteristics.
The swine production datasets are the product of ongoing work by the University of Arkansas Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the National Pork Board. The data documentation in this metadata record describes the project background and nomenclature, in addition to a description of the dataset structure, individual unit processes, and production scenarios. Flow-level metadata descriptions for selected unit processes within the U.S. swine dataset can be found in the Appendix section.
Data from: Changes in genetic selection differentials and generation intervals in US Holstein dairy cattle as a result of genomic selection
Aggregate means for six traits (milk, fat, and protein yields, somatic cell score, length of productive life, and daughter pregnancy rate)
Data from: Discovery of MicroRNAs of the Stable Fly (Diptera: Muscidae) by High-Throughput Sequencing
This dataset reports discovery and initial comparative analysis of 88 presumptive microRNA (miRNA) sequences from the stable fly, obtained using high-throughput sequencing of small RNAs. The majority of stable fly miRNAs were 22-23 nucleotides (nt) in length. Many miRNAs were arthropod specific, and several mature miRNA sequences showed greater sequence identity to miRNAs from other blood-feeding dipterans such as mosquitoes rather than to Drosophilids. This initial step in characterizing the stable fly microRNAome provides a basis for further analyses of life stage-specific and tissue-specific expression to elucidate their functional roles in stable fly biology.
