Monitoring how populations respond to sustained conservation measures is essential to detect changes in their population status and determine the effectiveness of any interventions. In the case of sea turtles, their populations are difficult to assess because of their complicated life histories. Ground-derived clutch counts are most often used as an index of population size for sea turtles; however, data are often incomplete with varying sampling intensity within and among sites and seasons. To address...

Data for figures and stats in the paper: The effects of locomotion on sensory-evoked haemodynamic responses in the cortex of awake mice

Beth Eyre, Kira Shaw, Paul Sharp, Luke Boorman, Llywelyn Lee, Osman Shabir, Jason Berwick & Clare Howarth
Investigating neurovascular coupling in awake rodents is becoming ever more popular due, in part, to our increasing knowledge of the profound impacts that anaesthesia can have upon brain physiology. Although awake imaging brings with it many advantages, we still do not fully understand how voluntary locomotion during imaging affects sensory-evoked haemodynamic responses. In this study we investigated how evoked haemodynamic responses can be affected by the amount and timing of locomotion. Using an awake imaging...

Wild zebra finches are attracted towards acoustic cues from conspecific social groups

Corinna Adrian, Simon Griffith, Marc Naguib & Wiebke Schuett
Social information gathered by observing others often supplements personal information collected from direct interactions with the physical environment during decision making. Social information use may be particularly beneficial in harsh environments or if resources are distributed patchily, ephemeral and unpredictable, and hence difficult to locate. We experimentally tested the use of acoustic cues in wild zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) as they flew around their arid habitat as a way of locating conspecifics on the ground,...

Protecting wellbeing and resilience in BAME families and communities during a public health emergency

Iyiola Solanke, florence ayisi, Claudia Bernard, Gargi Bhattacharyya, Anna Gupta, Raminder Kaur, Monica Lakhanpaul, Sabu Padmadas, Shirin Rai & Maria Stokes
Ignoring race, gender and class when tackling a pandemic can undermine not only wellbeing across Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic families and communities (BAME FC) but also their levels of trust in government. A framework to protect wellbeing and resilience in BAME FC during public health emergencies was developed by Co-POWeR to ensure that laws and guidance adopted are culturally competent.

High pitch sounds small for domestic dogs dataset

Anna Korzeniowska, Julia Simner, Holly Root-Gutteridge & David Reby
Humans possess intuitive associations linking certain non-redundant features of stimuli – e.g., high-pitched sounds with small object-size (or similarly, low-pitched sounds with large object-size). This phenomenon, known as crossmodal correspondence, has been identified in humans across multiple different senses. There is some evidence that non-human animals also form crossmodal correspondences, but the known examples are mostly limited to the associations between the pitch of vocalisations and the size of callers. To investigate whether domestic dogs,...

Flower species and their abundances on farmland in Hampshire and West Sussex during 2014 and 2018

R. Nichols, T.J. Wood, J.M. Holland & D. Goulson
The dataset contains information about floral abundance on eight farms across Hampshire and West Sussex in 2014 and 2018. Transects of 3km were marked out on each farm and surveyed 3 times in both years. Flower species seen along transects were identified and their estimated abundances recorded. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (Grants NE/P009972/1 and NE/J016802/1).

Insect visitations to wildflower seed mix trials on farms in West Sussex and Oxfordshire from 2019-2021

R. Nichols, J.M. Holland & D. Goulson
The dataset contains information about insect visitations to flowers growing in seed mix trial plots on two farms, one in West Sussex, and one in Oxfordshire. The data was collected during the spring and summer seasons of 2019, 2020, and 2021. Seed mix trial plots were walked centrally and insects visiting flowers in the plots were recorded, and where possible, identified to genus or species level. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research...
