Intended and Taught GNH-Infused Curriculum in Secondary Schools of Thimphu and Samtse Districts, Bhutan: A Mixed Methods School Effectiveness Research

Pema Thinley
Quantitative data were gathered using a 6-point Likert-scale questionnaire from 22 government secondary schools of Thimphu and Samtse districts, Bhutan comprising 202 teachers. From the original sample of teachers (N=202) 12 volunteered for inclusion in semi-structured interviews. Data were collected from the secondary school teachers using tools such as survey and interviews.

Unsuccessful introduced biocontrol agents can act as pollinators of invasive weeds: Bitou Bush (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata) as an example

Caroline Gross, JD Whitehead, C Silveira de Souza & D Mackay
The extent of self-compatibility and reliance on pollinators for seed-set are critical determinants of reproductive success in invasive plant species. Seed herbivores are commonly used as biocontrol agents but may also act as flower visitors, potentially resulting in pollination. However, such contrasting or potentially counterproductive interaction effects are rarely considered or evaluated for biological control programs. We investigated the breeding system and pollinators of Bitou Bush (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. rotundata), an invasive species in Australia...

Supervisory Teaching and Its Impact on Student Agency in Primary Classrooms

Paul Crowhurst
This exploratory case study utilised three primary classrooms at one Hong Kong international school. Teachers in each classroom utilised a Supervisory Teaching framework for some lessons. Student learning was observed in these lessons over a period of five months, with the aim of noting any instances of student agency. The teachers were interviewed as part of the data collection process. This data set includes transcribed interviews, observation notes, category analysis data, acts of teaching analysis...

Ficus rubiginosa, fruitset data and wasp and seed data

K David Mackay
Aim: We tested four hypotheses: (1) that pioneer trees at distribution margins would receive fewer visits from pollinators and pollinator parasitoids than would trees in larger, established populations; (2) that predator release (lower rates of pollinator parasitism) would result in higher pollinator reproductive success; (3) that less competition among fewer pollinator foundresses would correlate with higher plant reproductive success; and (4) that these effects would be greater at the plant species’ expanding range margin. Location:...

Price and Values Impact Renewable Energy Support

Keri Phillips
The survey comprised demographic items and measures to assess both political and values orientations. These were followed by contingent choice questions to assess participants’ support for the 50% RET at eight cost amounts. This study investigated how projected electricity prices and personal values influence public support for a 50% renewable energy target (RET) in Australia. In an online experiment, 404 participants rated their support for a 50% RET across eight projected increases in their quarterly...

Biting mechanics determines craniofacial morphology among extant diprotodont herbivores: Dietary predictions for the giant extinct short-faced kangaroo, Simosthenurus occidentalis.

Dave Mitchell
Larger herbivores can act as keystone species which strongly influence their communities. During the Pliocene and Pleistocene, Australia was dominated by a number of large to gigantic marsupial herbivore taxa. Many of these have been understudied quantitatively with regards to their ecology; and identifying the diet of these species will improve our understanding of not only their ecologies, but also of past environments. Recent research has found that cranial morphology among kangaroos and wallabies corresponds...

The effect of EFL teachers’ Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) on EFL teaching in Saudi Arabian Secondary Schools

Sami Alghamdi
Data was collected using two main instruments – a web-based survey and semi-structured interviews. The data was analysed and presented for examination in a PhD Thesis. There are no restrictions on the thesis.

Eye movements and implicit source memory

Inés Antón-Méndez & Andrew Talk
During source memory studies, knowledge of some detail about the context of a previously experienced item or event is tested. Here, participants attended to different objects presented at different quadrants on a screen. In a later test phase, a single object was presented in all four quadrants, and participants verbally reported whether the object was new or previously seen (item recognition), and if it was previously seen, they indicated the original screen location (source memory...

Adaptive Learning and Forgetting in an Unconventional Experimental Routine

Elizabeth Kyonka
Learning and forgetting were assessed concurrently in two experiments that involved the same unconventional routine. The schedule of reinforcement changed every session. Sessions were run back-to-back with a 23-hour mid-session break such that in a single visit to the testing chamber, the subject completed the second half of one session and the first half of the next. The beginning of a new session was either signaled or unsignaled. Experiment 1 involved concurrent variable interval-variable interval...

The anatomy of a crushing bite: the specialised cranial mechanics of a giant extinct kangaroo

D Rex Mitchell
This dataset contains STL files of Simosthenurus occidentalis and Phascolarctos cinereus crania and mandibles for 3D modelling. The related publication, published earlier this year (10.1017/pab.2018.46), examines the skulls of twelve species, including the two species included in this dataset. The models for these same two species in the related study were generated from these same files, but for entirely different hypotheses and tests.

Interactions between two species of recently-sympatric invasive honeybees: Apis cerana induces aggression in Apis mellifera during foraging

Caroline Gross, Joshua Whitehead, Ellis Mackay, Keith Daivd Mackay, Nigel Andrew & Dean Paini
Honeybees Apis mellifera (European honeybee) and Apis cerana (Asian honeybee) are cosmopolitan, having colonized continents beyond their natural ranges. In tropical Australia, these alien species have recently become sympatric. The environmental and economic impacts of these species when in sympatry remain to be seen; however, any interspecific competition may be of significance. We examined conspecific and heterospecific interactions between honeybees foraging at the nectar- and pollen-providing flowers of Antipogon leptopus (Polygonaceae). We cross-classified 554 encounters...

The rules of engagement

Tanya Howard
Interview data from in-depth, one on one interviews with key informants involved in a range of participatory processes stimulated by legal requirements for natural resource planning and wind farm development.

Head to Head: the case for combative behaviour in Megaloceros giganteus

Ada J Klinkhamer, Nicholas Woodley, James M Neenan, William C H Parr, Philip Clausen, Marcelo R Sanchez-Villagra, Adrian Lister & Stephen Wroe
The largest antlers of any known deer species belonged to the extinct giant Megaloceros giganteus. It has been argued that their antlers were too large for use in fighting, instead being used only in ritualised displays to attract mates. Here we used finite element analysis (FEA) to test whether the antlers of M. giganteus could have withstood forces generated during fighting behaviour. We compared the mechanical performance of antlers in M. giganteus with three extant...

Measures of eastern quoll vocalisations extracted using PRAAT

Annalie Dorph & Paul McDonald
Defining an acoustic repertoire is essential to understanding vocal signalling and communicative interactions within a species. Currently, quantitative and statistical definition is lacking for the vocalisations of many dasyurids, an important group of small to medium-sized marsupials from Australasia that includes the eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus), a species of conservation concern. Beyond generating a better understanding of this species' social interactions, determining an acoustic repertoire will further improve detection rates and inference of vocalisations gathered...
