SapsuckRz

Repo for Aphid Suction trap project.

We aim to investigate how climate and landscape (including crop cover) affect aphid emergence and peak abundace across a large extent of the United States over a period of 11 years (2005-2015). We hope to understand potential drivers of pest and non-pest aphid species abundance and how this might change due to antropogenic climate change.

Data we are using

We will be combining aphid suction trap data from 46 sites across the U.S. with climate and landscape data

Aphid abuance data set available from KBS LTER database

weather data pulled from the prism_weather_data_pull.R scirpt can be found on figureshare: here The analysis script pulls this data into R from figshare.

landcover data pulled from cdl_landcover_data_pull.R via the USDA Cropland Data Layer. The intermediate data product is stored directly on this repository: here.

EDA- Exploratory Data Analysis

The folder with EDA was generated during the process of working through the data and potential projects/vinettes we hoped to move forward with. As these are exploratory, the code isn't super clean; however, we thought it useful to highlight the scientific process and any code we utilized prior to the final analysis.
