The dataset contains the data collected in a user study carried out to evaluate the impact of using domain knowledge, ontologies, in the creation of global post-hoc explanations of black-box models. The research hypothesis was that the use of ontologies could enhance the understandability of explanations by humans. To validate this research hypothesis we ran a user study where participants were asked to carry out several tasks. In each task, the answers, time of response, and user understandability and confidence were collected and measured. The data analysis revealed that the use of ontologies do enhance the understandability of explanations of black-box models by human users, in particular, in the form of decision trees explaining artificial neural networks.

The THA-col composite was prepared by mixing THA (2.5% w/v) and col 1 (0.5% w/v) with simultaneous gelation induced by hydrogen peroxide and horseradish peroxidase for THA and neutralization for col. The composite biomaterial ink was characterized for fibrillation by turbidity measurement, fluorescence microscopy and rheological properties (shear thinning behaviour and amplitude sweep) were assessed. Anisotropic properties were introduced upon 3D bioprinting (3D DiscoveryTM, RegenHU) the biomaterial ink. Cellular behaviour was investigated by embedding human mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) spheroids into the hydrogel. Cell migration as well as chondrogenic differentiations was analysed over time by microscopy with subsequent image analysis (Oval plugin, ImageJ, NIH), gene expression analysis, histological stainings and glycosaminoglycan and DNA quantification. The fibrillation of col 1 and the homogenous distribution of the fibers within THA was shown by second harmonic generation imaging and fluorescent imaging and confirmed by turbidity measurement. After 3D bioprinting an anisotropic alignment of col fibrils was achieved that guided cell migration along the fiber orientation. Cell migration of hMSC spheroids showed similar behavior comparing THA-col and col whereas no migration was present for THA only. Chondrogenic differentiation resulted in an increase in cartilage related genes (col 2, aggrecan) with low tendency of hypertrophy (col X, col I, RunX2). Cartilage like matrix deposition was further corroborated by quantification of GAGs within samples that showed an overall increase within 21 days of culture similar to hMSC pellet control group. Safranin O staining resulted confirmed production of proteoglycans . Extrusion based printing has been investigated to produce scaffolds with anisotropic properties on microscale exploiting the shear forces inducing alignment of col fibres within a shear thinning HA matrix. The combination of the two matrix components brings unique features and advantages addressing cell migration, differentiation and material tissue integration compared to the single polymers. THA-col biomaterial has shown its potential for cartilage tissue engineering and represents a potential injectable material for cell free cartilage treatment.

An arboreal lifestyle is thought to be central to primate origins, and most extant primate species still live in the trees. Nonetheless, terrestrial locomotion is a widespread adaptation which has arisen repeatedly within the primate lineage. The absence of terrestriality among the New World monkeys (Platyrrhini) is thus notable and raises questions about the ecological pressures that constrain the expansion of platyrrhines into terrestrial niches. Here, we report the results of a natural experiment, comparing patterns of terrestrial behavior in white-faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus imitator) living on two islands off of the Pacific coast of Panama that lack mammalian predators (island sites) with the behavior of capuchins at three sites in central Panama with more intact predator communities (mainland sites). Surveys with camera traps revealed increased terrestriality in island vs. mainland sites. Capuchin detection rates were higher, the range of party sizes observed was larger, and individuals engaged in a wider range of terrestrial behaviors on the islands lacking mammalian predators. Further, females carrying infants were frequently photographed on the ground at the island sites, but never at the mainland sites. These findings support the longstanding hypothesis that predators constrain the exploitation of terrestrial niches by primates. These results are also consistent with the hypothesis that arboreal locomotion imposes costs that primates will avoid by walking on the ground when predation risk is low.

This dataset is a bibliographical database associated to the journal article "Twenty Years of Distributed Port-Hamiltonian Systems: A Literature Review" by R. Rashad, F. Califano, A.J. van der Schaft, and S. Stramigioli. In this article we review the research studies carried out in the past twenty years in the field of Distributed Port-Hamiltonian systems. The dataset includes the papers reviewed in this article, classified in their respective groups, which are over 150 studies. In addition, the dataset has an extra of 80 more studies that were not cited in the review paper, but are related to the field. All journal articles and the majority of the conference proceedings have their DOI included in the dataset. The main .bib file is named "Reference_List_Review". We hope this could guide new researchers in the field and accelerate the research and development of this powerful paradigm.
