... Island ecosystems have experienced massive biodiversity loss, and invasive species, in particular rodents, are responsible for much of this loss (~15%). Rodent eradications have led to the recovery of over 100 island vertebrates and their ecological roles. While the focus of most eradication efforts has been vertebrate recovery, rodents are generalists that predominantly eat seeds and fruit. However, there has been limited work on the effects of rodent eradication on plant communities and plant-mediated ecological processes. In this study, we conducted repeated surveys of seed, juvenile, and adult tree abundance and survival in permanent vegetation plots across an islet network (Palmyra Atoll) in the Central Tropical Pacific, before and after the eradication of black rats (Rattus rattus). Our aim was to examine the role of seed predation on tree communities and biomass. We observed an 84% decrease in seed predation of an introduced foundational species (the coconut palm, Cocos nucifera), and a 14-fold increase in juvenile tree biomass in all species following eradication. Juvenile C. nucifera abundance increased 2-5 times more than other tree species, leading to a 10% increase in population growth rate and a 4-fold increase in adult tree biomass accumulation over the next tree generation. We conclude that rodents can have nuanced impacts on island ecosystems, including facilitation of other invasive species and alteration of ecosystem functions such as carbon and nutrient cycling and storage. Future eradication efforts need to incorporate plant responses, since plants can shape post-eradication recovery trajectories. These data include census data from permanent vegetation plots on Palmyra Atoll, data used to determine community biomass from these plots, maps of Palmyra Atoll and the vegetation plot locations, and statistical tests used to determine changes in stages and vital rates for tree species in the permanent vegetation plots.

Characterization of the Corals and Sponges of the Eastern Scotian Slope from a Benthic Imagery Survey
Contributors: Lindsay Beazley, Camille Lirette, Javier Guijarro
... A benthic imagery survey was conducted along the Eastern Scotian Slope in June 2018 to collect data in support of a Strategic Program for Ecosystem-Based Research and Advice project to evaluate the effectiveness of the Lophelia Coral Conservation Area and identify new areas of importance for benthic species that may qualify for protection under Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s 2009 Policy for Managing the Impact of Fishing on Sensitive Benthic Areas. Linear video and photographic transects from ~200 to 1000 m depth were collected at 10 stations between the Gully Marine Protected Area and the Lophelia Coral Conservation Area using the video and photographic camera system Campod and the ‘4K Camera’ drop camera system. Here we present a quantitative assessment of the corals and sponges observed at each of these 10 stations. Patterns in distribution by transect and depth are presented, as well as the relationship between coral distribution and groundfish fishing effort. We highlight the importance of the slope outside the canyons for the distribution of corals and sponges, where nearly 25 taxa were recorded between 167 – 970 m depth. Diversity and abundance appeared to show a west-to-east gradient across the study area, being highest on those stations adjacent to the Lophelia Coral Conservation Area. Groundfish fishing activity overlapped the distribution of corals and sponges in some parts of the study area, particularly between 200 and 500 m where the large branching corals Paragorgia arborea and Primnoa resedaeformis were observed, and also suggested that fishing may have taken place within the boundaries of the Lophelia Coral Conservation Area since its implementation in 2004. An extension of the boundaries of this closure may ensure its continued effectiveness and provide protection for the diverse and abundant coral and sponge communities that reside beyond its boundaries.
Abaqus Code for a Residual Control Staggered Solution Scheme for the Phase-Field Modeling of Brittle Fracture
Contributors: Karlo Seleš
... Abaqus UEL and UMAT subroutines for the phase-field modeling of brittle fracture. The code consists of the 3-layered system of user elements and user material subroutine producing a staggered algorithm with a residual norm based stopping criterion. The elements are 4-node full integration 2D and 8-node full integration 3D linear elements. The implementation files (source code and input files) for some examples published in the associated journal article are given. The files contain detailed explanations and instructions for users. This is an updated version of the dataset. See more info in Version_3-ChangeLog.txt For additional information, suggestions or comments, please contacts us at email@example.com
