  • The dataset includes markers of oxidative state in banded mongooses at Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, in the period 2017-2021. Data are: red blood cell concentrations of glutathione; blood plasma concentrations of malondialdehyde; blood plasma concentrations of protein carbonyls; red blood cell activity of total superoxide dismutase; and whole milk concentrations of malondialdehyde. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/481c424e-f277-4eb7-9ee0-cbdb5532ef79

  • This data is an ensemble of Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) simulations, ran for a select set of 1kmx1km grid cells in Great Britain, each with a different set of parameter values, from 2001 to 2010. The data includes simulated Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) for 5 different plant functional types on an 8-day average. (Broadleaf trees, Needleleaf trees, C3 grasses, Shrubs, and Cropland) as well as the weighted combined sum. These simulations were obtained to facilitate statistical emulation, which is why a wide range of grid cells and parameter values were used (both also provided in the data set). The work was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council through research grant NE/T004177/1 JULES EMulator of ecosystem services (JEM) Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/789bea37-0450-4822-9857-3dc848feb937

  • This is a dataset on mortality costs and reproductive success from intergroup conflict in banded mongooses, collected from a wild population of banded mongooses on the Mweya Peninsula, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda between 2000-2019. We observed naturally occurring, aggressive interactions between social groups and recorded data on individual mortality occurring during and as a result of fighting. We used long term observations of reproductive events to determine individual reproductive success, measured as the total number of offspring assigned to each individual over the lifetime, and the number of offspring born to each individual from extra-group mating. We recorded data on oestrus events in social groups to determine when focal and rival groups were in oestrus simultaneously, and whether they were involved in an intergroup interaction with each other. These data were collected to examine the fitness costs and benefits of intergroup conflict.

  • The data provide information on a number of male cricket behaviours organized according to time and duration of the behaviour. Also included are the mean temperature at the ground level for the duration of each observation.

  • The dataset contain insect numbers, plant biomass, successful attacks of parasitoids, and behavioural response of parasitoids. The data are based on direct observations of insects and plants in field and laboratory experiments testing for the impact of different intensities of artificial light at night on an experimental insect food web with control (no light), and white LED light with 0.1,1,5,10,20,50,100 lux. Data collection was done in a field site, and controlled temperature room at Penryn Campus of University of Exeter, Penryn, UK. The field experiment was set up on 29th July 2016 and ran for nine weeks, while the additional experiments were conducted between summer 2016 and spring 2018. The data have been sampled as part of the NERC project NE/N001672/1 "Effects of artificial light on multi-trophic population dynamics".

  • Description of peatland sites included in the compilation of carbon accumulation rates, including resolution (high, low), interpolation (yes/no), contributor name, country, lon, lat, peatland type, dominant plant type, no. of dates used in the last millenium carbon accumulation rate calculation, and problems with the data. Peatland sites at northern hemisphere high and mid latitudes (260), tropical (30) and southern hemisphere high latitudes (7 sites).

  • Non-contact Atomic Force Microscopy images (NC-AFM) of surface nanobubbles on the carbonate mineral dolomite. Since surface nanobubbles were first imaged in 2000, they have been of growing interest to research due to their long lived properties, with reported lifetimes as long as several hours. Images of nanobubbles were produced under water, collector and depressant conditions using the air water supersaturation method. These are the first images of surface nanobubbles on dolomite. Surface nanobubbles could play a part in the processing of dolomite via froth flotation. These images lay a foundation for future analysis of the effect of nanobubbles in flotation.

  • This dataset contains the material required to reproduce 3D volumetric data describing the energy density of photons within a simulated environment and heatmaps and journey lengths for ensembles of weighted walkers experiencing specific simulated environments. The dataset includes source code for snapshots of the Monte Carlo Radiative Transfer (MCRT) code used to run simulations, the weighted random walking code used to emulate the behaviour of animals experiencing the simulated environment, as well as inputs and configuration files for both codes. The MCRT software outputs 3D volumetric data describing the energy density of photons within the simulated environment. Then, the weighted random walk code takes 2D planes from this data and produces heatmaps and journey lengths for ensembles of weighted walkers experiencing these simulated environments.

  • This document is the drillers log of strata encountered during site investigation work. The log was made in the field during drilling at Prees, Shropshire on 8th to 10th January 2020. The log includes basic information on lithology and drilling equipment used and depths of the individual core runs.
