Data from: A High-Quality Genome Assembly from a Single, Field-collected Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) using the PacBio Sequel II System

    A 2.3 Gb *de novo* genome assembly of a field-collected adult female Spotted Lanternfly (*Lycorma delicatula*) using a single PacBio SMRT Cell is provided. Supporting files for the manuscript "A High-Quality Genome Assembly from a Single, Field-collected Spotted Lanternfly (*Lycorma delicatula*) using the PacBio Sequel II System", include several intermediate versions of the assembly (raw output from Falcon, raw output from Falcon unzip, etc.) as well as the final assembly primary contigs and haplotigs (for the regions of the genome that were phased).

    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: Genome of the small hive beetle (Aethina tumida, Coleoptera: Nitidulidae), a worldwide parasite of social bee colonies, provides insights into detoxification and herbivory

        The small hive beetle (Aethina tumida, ATUMI) is an invasive parasite of bee colonies. ATUMI feeds on both fruits and bee nest products, facilitating its spread and increasing its impact on honey bees and other pollinators. The ATUMI genome has been sequenced and annotated, providing the first genomic resources for this species and for the Nitidulidae.
