  • This data was collected from co-evolving bacterial populations containing Pseudomonas fluorescens strain SBW25 and a plasmid, pQBR57. The composition of the community was tracked using flow cytometry to distinguish 1) an unlabelled wild type strain 2) a dTomato compensated host (SBW25 KO PFLU4242), and 3) a wild type host bearing a Green fluorescent protein (GFP) labelled compensated plasmid (pQBR57 KO 0059).

  • This dataset contains a mosquito species table with counts for adults and larvae. Samples are from 12 UK wetland sites, sampled between April 2017 and September 2018. A map included in the wetlandmetadata.docx file shows site locations, which include both coastal and inland wetlands, and range from Devon to Kent and from Lincolnshire to Dorset. Samples were collected by staff from University of Greenwich and the UK Health Security Agency: collaborators in a NERC-funded project (NE/NO13379/1), part of the Valuing Nature Programme. We found a total of 19 mosquito species: • 10 Aedes • 3 Anopheles • 3 Culisseta • 2 Culex • 1 Coquillettidia. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • This dataset is part of the study of mimetic host shifts in an endangered social parasite of ants, which is a joint study of the NERC's Centre for Ecology & Hydrology(UK), the University of Oxford(UK), University of Bialystok(Poland), Polish Academy of Sciences(Poland) and UFZ Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research(Germany). Combined with datasets collected from previous study, they compare the proportions of caterpillars of Maculinea rebeli being adopted by resident Myrmica ant species near Przemysl, Poland in autumn with proportions of successful survivors the following summer to establish host specificity of the socially parasitic butterfly species. The data comprise: the study year, the ant species, total number of ant nest, the number of caterpillar survivors found in the nest of each ant species, number of nests with caterpillar presence and total number of nests without caterpillar presence. They were obtained from one population for 4 years(Y2001, Y2003, Y2004, Y2005). Detailed research method can be found in Thomas et al. (2013) Mimetic host shifts in an endangered social parasite of ants. Proc. R. Soc. B vol. 280 no.1751. (doi: 10.1098/rspb.2012.2336) Full details about this nonGeographicDataset can be found at

  • This dataset describes the composition of a co-evolving community (as colony forming units) over a 30-transfer selection experiment in soil microcosms. The community consists of Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 + Pseudomonas putida KT2440 + plasmid pQBR57. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • Growth parameters for tree seedlings in a lowland tropical forest in Panama, subject to experimental soil warming. The experiment is situated at the Soil Warming Experiment in Lowland Tropical Rainforest (SWELTR) on Barro Colorado Island in Panama, where the whole soil profile is subject to warming by 4-degrees. Seedling species are Inga laurina, Ormosia macrocalyx, Tachigali versicolor, Lacmellea panamensis, Protium pittieri and Virola surinamensis. Data are seedling parameters: relative growth rates, height change over time, herbivory index, light-saturated photosynthesis (Amax), leaf chlorophyll concentration, light (photosynthetic photon flux density; PPFD). We also determined soil nutrient (N and P) mineralisation for the same period using in situ ion-exchange resins each month. Data were collected over the period 2016 to 2020, following 3 years of soil warming. Photosynthesis and leaf chlorophyll content index data were collected in field campaigns during 2019 and 2022, respectively. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • [This dataset is embargoed until May 1, 2025]. The dataset contains information on six functional traits of woody plants, including Leaf Area, Specific Leaf Area (SLA), Leaf Dry Matter Content (LDMC), Leaf Thickness (Lth), Wood Density (WD), Bark Thickness (BT). It also includes data on concentrations of C, N, P, Ca, Mg, and K in leaves; leaf fresh mass and leaf dry mass data; and fresh wood volume and dry wood mass data to calculate Wood Density. Ten leaves per individual were sampled, and three measurements were taken for leaf thickness at the base, middle, and top of the leaf. For wood density, a single branch sample was taken per individual and for bark thickness five measurements per individual were made. The data were collected between 2019 and 2022 from 27 forest monitoring plots (0.5 ha each) in five locations along an altitudinal (lowland, mid-elevation, and highland forests) and forest perturbation (low, medium, and high perturbation levels) gradient in Andean ecosystems in Colombia. The database includes information about the plot location and parameters of the locality. The purpose of this data collection was to determine whether the expression of functional traits in woody plants differs between the perturbation gradient and the relationship of the traits to ecosystem processes. This information is important for understanding the drivers of variation in forest resilience and the impacts of perturbation on ecosystem functioning. This data set was obtained within the framework of the BioResilience project, a transdisciplinary investigation that seeks to understand the resilience of forest ecosystems after the post-conflict period in Colombia.

  • This dataset provides linear trends, over varying time periods, for the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme (UKBMS) Collated Indices of individual butterfly species across the UK. The main statistical values derived from a linear regression (slope, standard error, P-value) are presented for the entire time series for each species (1976 to 2015), for the last 20 years, and for the last decade. In addition a trend class, based on slope direction and its significance, and a percentage change for that time period are provided to describe the statistical trends. These trend data are provided for 59 UK butterfly species. Trends across different time series allow us to determine the long and short-term trends for individual species. This enables us to focus conservation and research and also to assess species responses to conservation already in place. The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) and Butterfly Conservation (BC) are responsible for the calculation and interpretation of this trend datasets. The collection of the underlying UKBMS data is reliant on a large volunteer community. The UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme is funded by a consortium of organisations led by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC). This version supersedes the original version due to an error in the precision of the reported figures. This dataset is updated annually and a more recent version of the UKBMS species trends (2016) is now available. Full details about this dataset can be found at

  • [This dataset is embargoed until September 30, 2023]. The dataset contains: (i) estimates of zinc tolerance for 50 populations of Silene uniflora in the UK and Ireland generated between 03/2021 and 09/2021. The data were collected using cuttings from wild collected specimens. Root growth of cuttings in zinc rich media was assessed using deep water culture experiments. The data set contains the zinc tolerance (mean and standard deviations of root growth scores) and the number of cuttings assessed for each population; (ii) GPS positions describing the locations of 56 populations of Silene uniflora in the UK and Ireland which were observed between 2018 and 2021. Basic habitat type (montane, serpentine, mine, coastal) information is also included. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council NE/R001081/1.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until July 1, 2025]. This dataset contains information about the compound-specific stable hydrogen isotope composition (δ2H) of n-alkanoic acids with 26, 28 and 30 carbon atoms. The samples originated from the Lake Suigetsu sediment cores. Data is provided at an approximately ~60 year resolution from 132.7 ka BP to 125.2 ka BP (n = 60). To accompany this data, the mass-normalised concentrations of key n-alkane and n-alkanoic acids are provided, alongside n-alkane index values. This data was collected to infer changes to the Lake Suigetsu catchment and the East Asian Summer Monsoon during Glacial Termination II. This work was supported by the Quaternary Research Association, the Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society, the School of Geographical and Earth Science (University of Glasgow) and the NERC IAPETUS2 Doctoral Training Partnership.
