Data from: Retention of Pantoea agglomerans Sc1R across stadia of the southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)

    This study aims to determine the acquisition of the bacterium Pantoea agglomerans strain Sc1R by early instars of Southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula, and determine persistence of P. agglomerans Sc1R across subsequent stadia. 1st and 2nd instars were exposed to P. agglomerans Sc1R and subsequently maintained to adulthood; cohorts were sampled at 3rd and 5th instars, as well as adults.

    Data from: Draft Genome Assembly of Passalora sequoiae a Needle Blight Pathogen on Leyland Cypress

      The objective was to generate a high-quality draft assembly of the whole genome as a resource for future applications such as temporal and spatial dispersal studies of the pathogen and to investigate genotype diversity relevant in fungicide resistance studies and cypress breeding programs. Supporting images illustrate Leyland cypress tree showing *Passalora* twig blight symptoms; Infected Leyland cypress leaf with sporulating conidioma of *Passalora sequoiae*; Conidia of *Passalora sequoiae*, and *Passalora* 9LC2 phylogeny.

      Data from: United States wildlife and wildlife product imports from 2000–2014

        Data are presented on 15 years of the importation of wildlife and their derived products into the United States (2000–2014), originally collected by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. These data include >2 million wildlife or wildlife product shipments, representing >60 biological classes and >3.2 billion live organisms. The data were curated and cleaned, and taxonomic information added to improve usability.
