This web map shows positive plant habitat condition indicators across Great Britain (GB). This data provides a metric of plant diversity weighted by the species that you would expect and desire to have in a particular habitat type so indicates habitat condition. In each Countryside Survey 2007 area vegetation plot the number of positive plant habitat indicators (taken from a list created from Common Standards Monitoring Guidance and consultation with the Botanical society of the British Isles (BSBI)) for the habitat type in which the plot is located are counted. This count is then divided by the possible indicators for that habitat type (and multiplied by 100) to get a percentage value. This is extrapolated to 1km squares across GB using a generalised additive mixed model. Co-variables used in the model are Broad Habitat (the dominant broad habitat of the 1km square), air temperature, nitrogen deposition, sulphur deposition, precipitation and whether the plot is located in a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) (presence or absence data).
This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) under accession number PRJEB36347. The dataset contains whole-genome sequencing from 13 natural populations of the Trinidadian guppy (Poecillia reticulata) (n=272) sampled across a range of colour and predation schemes. Data were collected to investigate the ecological genomics of Negative Frequency Dependent Selection (NFDS). Guppy males are colourful, displaying a mosaic of complex and varied colouration patterns; in comparison, females are drab and inconspicuous. Females prefer rare males and rare males show higher reproductive fitness. Rare males also have a significantly higher survival advantage. This project used genome scans to identify the evolutionary signatures of NFDS.
The dataset contains a stratified survey of ecological and soil states at sites where fine scale patterns of covariation between vegetation and edaphic characteristics were recorded. Key data collection included leaf area index, moss and organic matter thickness, surface and deeper soil moisture. Data were collected at sites in the Yukon (2013) and Northwest Territories (2014), Canada. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/36f4e380-d01d-44a7-8321-7a677e6996b2
This dataset reports results on seedling growth and survival for two hyphal exclusion experiments in a subtropical forest. The data include survival status, height, total biomass and the biomass of component plant parts, percentage root colonisation by mycorrhizas, for tree seedlings of ten common species including five ectomycorrhizal (ECM) and five arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) species, which were transplanted in the in-growth cores with windows covering different sizes of nylon meshes (35 vs. 0.5 µm). The dataset provides raw data on growth and survival metrics for each seedling, plus identifying codes for the dominant sites where the experiments were conducted, as well as experimental block, mesh treatment, botanical names for the tree species, and mycorrhizal type. The data were entered into Excel spreadsheets and exported as comma separated value files (csv). Study area - the Heishiding Nature Reserve (111°53’E, 23°27’N, 150-927 m a.s.l.) in Guangdong Province of south China.

This dataset contains potential activities of soil extra cellular enzyme measured from soil samples from the Phosphorus Limitation And ecosystem responses to Carbon dioxide Enrichment (PLACE). The enzyme activities measured are 1,4-β-glucosidase, cellobiohydrolase, N-acetyl β-D-glucosaminidase, leucine aminopeptidase, and acid phosphatase. Soil samples were collected in Autumn 2018 and analysed in the laboratory at Wageningen University. The experimental design uses 35 cm x 35 cm turf mesocosms from a long term nutrient manipulation experiment. The original experiment is based at Wardlow Hay Cop in the Peak District, UK. Two adjacent P-limited grass lands on a limestone/ calcareous soil and an acidic soil have had nutrient manipulated for > 20 years. In 2018 these mesocosms were exposed to either ambient CO2 (ca. 410 ppm) or 600 ppm. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/5e944db2-305f-4f15-87b4-5110224ac90d
The data set is sequences of microorganisms that were isolated or determined by direct DNA extraction from the Eyjafjallajökull Iceland lava flows. The data is held in BLAST as follows: Clone 16S rRNA gene sequences have been deposited in GenBank under accession numbers HQ898914 to HQ900366.
Dataset contains DNA sequencing from reciprocal crosses of B.terrestris dalmatinus and B.terrestris audax which were carried out by Biobest, Leuven. Four successful colonies (one of each cross direction) from two ’families’ were housed at the University of Leuven and kept in 21◦C with red light conditions, they were fed ad libitum with pollen and a sugar syrup. Callow workers were tagged in order to determine age. Worker reproductive status was confirmed by ovary dissection and entire bodies were then stored at -80◦C along with the original queen mothers and male fathers. Three reproductive workers, aged 16-17days, were selected from queen-less conditions from each of the crosses. This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the NCBI SRA under BioProject PRJNA573820
[This dataset is embargoed until September 1, 2021]. Data are presented showing litterfall ant species and abundance from a plot based fertilisation experiment. The experiment was carried out at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP) approximately 100 km north of Manaus. Data were collected in October 2018 and September 2019 by Santos-Neto. Sampling was carried out using a Wrinkler extractor. The data were collected to investigate the possible effects of different fertiliser applications on litterfall ant species and abundance. The work was carried out as part of the Amazon Fertilization Experiment (AFEX), funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Award reference NE/L007223/1, by the Brazilian government (Researcher scholarship) and the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP - logistical support and camps maintenance).
