  • These spatial layers map the suitability of climate conditions for infection of Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae across the UK. The model is based on laboratory data of environmental responses of these pathogens and hourly temperature and relative humidity regimes between 2007 and 2011, and focuses on how many times infection could have been completed within running 48 hour periods through the year. Average suitability of conditions are mapped for the whole period and for individual years from 2007 to 2011. This research was funded by the Scottish Government under research contract CR/2008/55, 'Study of the epidemiology of Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae in managed gardens and heathlands in Scotland' and involved collaborators from St Andrews University, Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Forestry Commission, the Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA) and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH). This dataset forms part of a series. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/a13d5821-824f-41ba-a930-26a5f0f4d2a6

  • This dataset contains information about moth abundance and pollen transport at sites lit by high-pressure sodium streetlights and unlit control sites. Moths were sampled at 20 matched pairs of lit and unlit sites within 40 km of Wallingford, Oxfordshire, UK (51°35' N, 1°8' W) during 2014, as part of a study of the effects of street lighting on moths and nocturnal pollen transport. Three sampling methods were used: night-time transects, light-traps and overhead flight activity surveys. Moths captured were identified, counted, and sampled for pollen transported on the proboscis, which was in turn identified and counted. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (Grant ID: NE/K007394/1).
