Data from: Galls formed by Aceria genistae (Acari: Eriophyidae) alter resource allocation of the invasive weed Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius)

    The Scotch broom gall mite, Aceria genistae, attacks Cytisus scoparius (Scotch broom), an invasive shrub in California, USA. Feeding causes galls (localized tissue distortion) but the effect of A. genistae on overall host vigor and reproduction has not been assessed. We collected data on plant parts between two plants partitioned between two groups, heavily or lightly galled plants, at three northern California sites.

      Data from: Thermal tolerance regulates foraging behavior of ants

        Data files for manuscript titled "Thermal tolerance regulates foraging behavior of ants". Over two years, we tracked 322 foraging trips from 15 red harvester ant colonies in a mixed grass prairie of southwestern Oklahoma. During each trip, we measured surface temperature, distance, time, worker mass, seed mass, and foraging tempo (i.e. running speed). To assess P. barbatus heat tolerance, we measured CTmax and knock-down resistance of field-collected workers in the lab.
