This microsatellite dataset was constructed using eight microsatellite loci with 270 individual samples, representing wild population of Euonymus fortunei in Ohio, Kentucky, Kansas, and Minnesota. Also represented are multiple individuals from several Euonymus cultivars and also wild E. alatus (burning bush) from Ohio. This database is published as Elam RJ and Culley TM (2023) Genetic Analysis of Invasive Spread of Euonymus fortunei (Wintercreeper), a Popular Ornamental Groundcover. Invasive Plant Science and Management.
Data generated from a survey of problematic plants (species and cultivars) identified in seven public gardens in the Midwestern United States and Canada. Included are: (1) List of 881 plant taxa identified as problematic in the seven different public gardens; cultivars are presented individually and not collapsed within species; (2) Collapsed list in which cultivars have been subsumed under plant species; (3) List of only cultivars identified as problematic.
List of plant species recognized as invasive in the Midwest Invasive Plant Network (MIPN), and either regulated or informational. Shown are their method of introduction (intentional vs. accidental), and if intentional, whether it be introduced by ornamental, erosion control, feed/fodder/crops, aquarium trade, and/or medicinal or culinary uses. This was determined from a review of online sources and the scientific literature, and comparison to the dissertation by Sarah Reichard (1994).
Data set and code for paper "Population extinction and metapopulation synchrony: a reassessment"
The data consists of Z-transformed correlations and ranks in population growth among treatment and experimental populations of the butterfly Parnassius smintheus before during and after experimental extinction.
A second file contains the number of pair-wise dispersal events for these populations during the same period.
R files used to run the analysis are also included.

Talk Title: Lessons From Publishing: Do Researchers in Developing Countries Receive Credit for Their Work?
My laboratory is working to better understand if scientists in developing countries, where the majority of plant biodiversity occurs, are receiving proper scientific recognition for their research in the form of authorship in the peer-reviewed literature. We are also interested in promoting shared, accessible data that may be used in future studies to make novel advancements in the biological field. Our research thus far indicates that many scientists in developing countries are not being included in the published literature as authors
