Summary

Chemically intensive crop production depletes wildlife food resources, hinders animal development, health, survival, and reproduction, and it suppresses wildlife immune systems, facilitating emergence of infectious diseases with excessive mortality rates. Gut microbiota is crucial for wildlife’s response to environmental stressors. Its composition and functionality are sensitive to diet changes and environmental pollution associated with modern crop production. In the study entitled Exposure to crop production alters cecal prokaryotic microbiota, inflates virulome and resistome in wild prairie grouse we use shotgun metagenomics to demonstrate that exposure to modern crop production detrimentally affects cecal microbiota of sharp-tailed [...]

Purpose

Agriculture poses an imminent threat to biodiversity with the greatest decline of avian abundance suffered by grasslands in North America. The relationship between crop production and rapid avian decline is poorly understood. We release data that were collected and derived during the study evaluating effects of exposure to crop production on prokaryotic microbiota, virulome, and resistome in prairie grouse. This study will facilitate development of sustainable agricultural practices
