  • The dataset contains aquatic carbon and dissolved greenhouse gas data collected from 6 headwater stream sampling sites within the UK’s largest tract of blanket bog, the Flow Country of N. Scotland. The streams drain from catchments under different peatland management regimes: natural non-drained peatland, drained peatland, and restored peatland (achieved via ditch blocking). Sites were sampled on an approximately fortnightly basis between September 2008 and August 2010. Data were obtained via collection of water and gas samples in situ, and concentrations were derived via subsequent sample processing and analysis. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • This dataset contains information regarding mountain river sites sampled in 2016-17. It includes: 1) physicochemical parameters of the river sites sampled, 2) tensile-strength loss data of a standardised cotton strip assay as a proxy for the decomposition of cellulose in mountain rivers, 3) molecular next generation sequencing data of the fungal Internal Transcribed Spacer region (ITS) and Cellobiohydrolase I gene (cbhI) sampled from the cotton strip decomposition assay. Field observations were made in Alaska, Austria, Ecuador, France, New Zealand and Norway to investigate how decreasing catchment glacier cover influences the fungal decomposition of organic matter in mountain rivers.
