  • This dataset contains DNA sequence data from reproductive Bombus terrestris audax workers brain and ovarian tissue (80 – 100 days post establishment), and from the tissue of male offspring of these workers at varying developmental stages, specifically stage 4 larval heads, pupal heads, adult (13 – 14 days old) male brains and adult male sperm. This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the NCBI SRA under BioProject PRJNA573598

  • 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.

  • 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

  • The dataset contains partial sequence of Mucoromycotina species (liverwort) isolates containing Eukaryota, fungi, Incertae sedis and Mucoromycota analyising for ribosomal RNA genes. This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in NCBI Nucleotide Accession Numbers: MH174461-MH174649 (Mucoromycotina species Isolate) PopSet: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/popset?DbFrom=nuccore&Cmd=Link&LinkName=nuccore_popset&IdsFromResult=1375517951

  • A measure of the extent and complexity of riprian vegetation upstream of chalkstream sites derived from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data for three chalkstream sites within the Wessex chalk area (River Till, River Wylye and Nine Mile River). For each site there is an estimate of the minimum, maximum, mean and standard deviation height of vegetation along the banks for a range of distances upstream from the sampling location. Information on the extent and complexity of riparian vegetation upstream of chalkstream sites were used to better understand the relationships between in-stream biological communities and catchment and riparian land use. Stream sites surveyed represented a sample of chalkstreams across a gradient of catchment land cover intensification from catchments dominated by extensive calcareous grassland and woodland (Nine Mile River) to those dominated by arable and improved grasslands (Wylye). LiDAR data were obtained from the Environment Agency in April 2014. This dataset was created as part of work package 3.2 of the Wessex Biodiversity & Ecosystem Service Sustainability (BESS) project.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until April 1, 2021]. This dataset contains botanical data from 13 calcareous grassland, 13 heathland and 12 woodland sites within Dorset, UK. The sites were selected to represent a range of habitat types across a condition gradient as measured by levels of degradation from the original habitat. The original habitats were identified as being calcareous grassland, heathland or woodland from a survey conducted in the 1930s. Within heathland and calcareous grassland sites the percentage cover of all plant species were recorded within five 1m quadrat squares. Plants were recorded to species level where possible, or genus where species level was not possible. Covers of bare ground and litter were also recorded. Within woodlands plots, sampling was done slightly differently to enable recording of ground level plants and species within multiple canopy levels. Cover and presence of all herbaceous species were recorded in 2m quadrat squares, cover of tree seedlings (<1.5 m height) were recorded in 5m quadrat squares and ground-level cover of trunk of tree species if necessary were recorded in 10m quadrat squares. Heathland and calcareous grassland sites were visited in summer 2017 and woodland sites were visited in summer 2018.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until April 1, 2021]. This dataset contains pollinator abundance data from 13 calcareous grassland, 13 heathland and 12 woodland sites within Dorset, UK. The sites were selected to represent a range of habitat types across a condition gradient as measured by levels of degradation from the original habitat. The original habitats were identified as being calcareous grassland, heathland or woodland from a survey conducted in the 1930s. Butterflies, bees, hoverflies, flies and beetles were recorded to species level and the plant species insects were foraging on was also recorded. Data were collected on three different dates in 2017 and 2018: calcareous grassland in June, July and August; heathland transects in May, August and September; and woodland transects in May, June and July.

  • This data set details soil pH values and soil moisture values from experimental plots at a field site at Sourhope, Scotland, between 1998 and 2002. Data were collected as part of the NERC Soil Biodiversity Thematic Programme, which was established in 1999 and was centred upon the intensive study of a large field experiment located at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute) farm at Sourhope in the Scottish Borders (Grid reference: NT8545019630). During the experiment, the site was monitored to assess changes in above-ground biomass production (productivity), species composition and relative abundance (diversity).

  • This dataset includes soil mass, organic phosphorus, carbon and nitrogen concentrations for light and heavy fractions, obtained from soils collected from UK habitats. The dataset includes 20 soils, collected from the Ribble, Avon and Conwy catchments in the North West, South and North Wales respectively. Samples were split into light and heavy fractions using a physicochemical fractionation method. The dataset also includes recoveries of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus as a measure of the efficacy of the fractionation method. Extra data on sampling location, catchments conditions and bulk soil texture are also included in this dataset.

  • This dataset measures the abundance of ant species at baited traps set across twelve trees in four experimental plots in lowland, tropical rainforest. Baited traps were set at 5 m vertical intervals from the ground to as high as possible in the canopy, the stratum of each trap location was recorded. At each height two pairs of baited traps were set, each pair contained one trap baited with carbohydrate (honey and oats) and the second with protein (tuna). Traps within each pair were separated by approximately 20cm were left open for 24 hours. All ants collected were identified to morphospecies level and the species abundance in each trap was recorded.
