  • Data comprise stable element concentrations in terrestrial Reference Animals and Plants (RAPs) and corresponding whole-body concentration ratios determined in two different Mediterranean ecosystems: a Pinewood and a Dehesa (grassland with disperse tree cover). The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) RAPs considered in the Pinewood ecosystem were Pine Tree and Wild Grass; whereas in the Dehesa ecosystem those considered were Deer, Rat, Earthworm, Bee, Frog, Duck and Wild Grass. The data include: elemental concentrations in soils; elemental concentrations in plants, invertebrates, vertebrate tissues and estimated concentrations for vertebrate whole-organisms; individual concentration ratios (relating the fresh matter concentration in organisms to the dry matter concentration in soil); vertebrate species tissue masses; fresh to dry matter data for invertebrate species; geometric and arithmetic mean and standard deviation summaries for elemental concentrations and concentration ratios. Elemental concentrations presented include I, Li, Be, B, Na, Mg, Al, P, S, K. Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Rb, Sr, Mo, Ag, Cd, Cs, Ba, Tl, Pb and U.

  • The shapefiles contain the classification and locations of each river style determined by the authors. The data were used to characterise the river styles in Bislak River, Philippines. Shapefiles were clipped to the catchment boundary from different national government agencies to produce different thematic maps. Catchment properties such as land use (from the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA)), geology (from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau), fault (from Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, rainfall isohyets, slope map, and the digital elevation model (also from NAMRIA) were used for regional and catchment analysis. The data only covers the whole Bislak catchment, Philippines. The CSV contains data used for the stream power analysis where stream power is a factor of slope and discharge.

  • Data consists of abundance counts and diversity of pollinators collected in Ghana. Pollinators were sampled with pan-traps between August and November 2016 in 126 greenspaces spread over an urbanisation gradient and three management practices (amenity lands, farmed sites and informal greenspaces) around Sunyani and Techiman, Ghana. All insects were identified to order in the field. Samples were stored in 70% alcohol before being pinned for identification. Bees and wasps were pinned and differentiated with microscopy based on Goulet and Hubert (1993). Bees were subsequently identified with microscopy to morpho-species following Eardley, Kuhlmann and Pauly (2010). Full details about this dataset can be found at
