This data set documents the dry mass energy density, distribution, and stomach contents of age-0 chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) captured in the Kuskokwim Bay estuary in May and June 2004. The analysis of this data was published in Burrill et al. 2018 (DOI :10.1007/s00300-018-2297-2.).
Plant trait and soil moisture data associated with ontogenetic trait shifts - seedlings display high trait variability during early stages of development
These tabular data were compiled to document how key plant trait values change during plant development, particularly seedling stages, and in relation to soil moisture. An objective of our study was to answer three main research questions: (1) Do seedling trait values differ across early to late stages of seedling development and do those trajectories vary among plant species and functional types (i.e., forbs vs. grasses)?; (2) Does water availability influence seedling ontogenetic trait variation? and, if so, does this variation affect plant species drought performance?; and (3) Do seedling trait values at early stages of development differ from complied trait database values for species? These data represent key...
Greenhouse observations of plant herbivore interactions on Lepidium draba to test effects of ontogenic variability
Data were collected from an experimental greenhouse study in which Lepidium draba plants were grown from root cuttings to create plants at different ontogenic stages. Plants were arranged in mixed-age and single-age stands and exposed to the Lepidopteran herbivore, diamondback moth caterpillars. The success (biomass gain and surivival) of herbivores, the amount of feeding, and the growth of plants were recorded as responses to ontogenic stage. In addition, glucosinolates (a group of secondary metabolites known to act as defenses against herbivores) were quantified on plants of differing ontogenic stage.
Cumulative thermal units and developmental stage of Pallid Sturgeon free embryos reared at multiple temperatures
This dataset documents the onset of developmental stages of pallid sturgeon free embryos from hatch through melanin plug expulsion, when reared in the laboratory at five nominal temperatures (14, 17, 20, 23, and 26 degrees Celsius, ° C). Onset of developmental stages were recorded in days post-hatch (DPH) and cumulative thermal units (CTU). CTU are calculated as the sum of water temperature, in ° C, during the time of exposure, in our case, from the time of hatch to the time of sample preservation. Pallid sturgeon transition through a series of brief developmental stages during a free-embryo period from hatch to melanin plug expulsion, which is regarded as the approximate onset of exogenous feeding. Detailed characteristics...
