e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Corridors affect dispersal initiation in reintroduced peregrine falcons


We reintroduced 33 peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) at two release areas with contrasting habitat configurations to assess landscape influences on dispersal. One site (Daniel Boone National Forest) had non-forested corridors within a forest matrix, whereas the other site (Tom Dorman State Nature Preserve) had forested corridors within an agricultural matrix. We used aerial telemetry and ground observation to assess differences in dispersal between sites and we used multivariate statistical analyses to detect combinations of response variables depicting landscape influences. Non-forested corridors at Daniel Boone affected post-fledging movements and initiation of dispersal, whereas no discernable pattern in dispersal initiation was observed at Dorman Preserve. Results included significant (p < 0.05) differences between peregrines at Daniel Boone and Dorman Preserve in (x) over bar +/- SD post-fledging area (PFA) size (2643.5 +/- 2599.0 and 931.7 +/- 732.1 ha, respectively), maximum movement distances (12.9 +/- 13.9 and 6.1 +/- 4.6 km, respectively), orientation of movements (second-order (x) over bar angle +/- 95% confidence interval (CI) = 280.8 +/- 58.6 (non-random orientation) and 358.8 +/- 98.8 (random orientation), respectively), time spent on the PFA (16.0 +/- 12.2 and 31.0 +/- 3.3 days, respectively) and selection of agricultural habitats (Euclidean distance vectors p = 0.66 and p = 2.50, respectively). Selection of agriculture by peregrines released on Daniel Boone reflected selection of corridors as part of pre-dispersal movement. These results, coupled with generally unorientated movement behaviour by Dorman Preserve peregrines, provided evidence for an influence of functional landscape connectivity on dispersal in peregrines.
