Probable suitable habitat for Rusby's desert-mallow (Sphaeralcea rusbyi var. eremicola) in the California desert

Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Rusby's desert-mallow (Sphaeralcea rusbyi var. eremicola). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be suitable for the species, and the average standardized habitat suitability score for each location.Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model...

Potential productivity and change for sideoats grama in the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative area

This data set includes the relative production scenarios for sideoats grama [1.13(Temp) + 0.41(Precip) - 0.004(Precip)^2- 0.07(Sand) - 12.3]; this is the model from Epstein, et al. (1998). Soil texture (percent by weight) came from the Earth Systems Science Center (2008) which provided processed soils data from NRCS (gSSURGO), mean annual temperature (Celsius) and/or mean annual precipitation...

Metagenomic detection and reconstruction of Lake Sinai Virus from honey bee sequence data

A survey of public honey bee sequence data was performed to detect infections by Lake Sinai Virus (LSV). The Sequence Read Archive of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) was queried to identify accessions of RNA sequence data derived from honey bee. These were filtered as described below and then up to 50 million reads or read pairs were downloaded and searched against a...
