The Ogallala Agro-Climate Tool
The Ogallala Agro-Climate Tool is a Visual Basic application that estimates irrigation demand and crop water use over the Ogallala Aquifer region.
Data from: Long-Distance Transportation Causes Temperature Stress in the Honey Bee, Apis mellifera (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
To test how temperature may contribute to bee (*Apis mellifera*) transportation stress, temperature sensors were placed in hives in different locations and orientations on the trailer during shipping. Colony size prior to shipping significantly contributed to loss of population immediately after shipping which contributed to colony failure with smaller colonies more likely to fail and fail faster. Colony size also affects thermoregulation and temperature stress.
Data from: Shoot transcriptome of the giant reed, Arundo donax
The giant reed, *Arundo donax*, is a perennial grass species that has become an invasive plant in many countries. To establish a foundational molecular dataset, an llumina Hi-Seq protocol was used to sequence the transcriptome of actively growing shoots from an invasive genotype collected along the Rio Grande River, bordering Texas and Mexico. The assembly of 27,491 high confidence transcripts (≥200 bp) are reported with at least 70% coverage of known genes in other Poaceae species.
