Data from: The direction aftereffect is a global motion phenomenon

William Curran, Lee Beattie, Delfina Bilello, Laura A. Coulter, Jade A. Currie & Jessica M. Pimentel Leon
Prior experience influences visual perception. For example, extended viewing of a moving stimulus results in the misperception of a subsequent stimulus’s motion direction – the direction aftereffect (DAE). There has been an on-going debate regarding the locus of the neural mechanisms underlying the DAE. We know the mechanisms are cortical, but there is uncertainty about where in the visual cortex they are located – at relatively early local motion processing stages, or at later global...

Data from: Unravelling the macro-evolutionary ecology of fish-jellyfish associations: life in the ‘gingerbread house’

Donal C. Griffin, Chris Harrod, Jonathan D.R. Houghton & Isabella Capellini
Fish-jellyfish interactions are important factors contributing to fish stock success. Jellyfish can compete with fish for food resources, or feed on fish eggs and larvae, which works to reduce survivorship and recruitment of fish species. However, jellyfish also provide habitat and space for developing larval and juvenile fish which use their hosts as means of protection from predators and feeding opportunities, helping to reduce fish mortality and increase recruitment. Yet, relatively little is known about...

Data from: The influence of warming on the biogeographic and phylogenetic dependence of herbivore-plant interactions

Xidong Mu, Meng Xu, Anthony Ricciardi, Jaimie T.A. Dick, Du Luo, Hui Wei, Yinchang Hu & Qiwei Wei
Evolutionary experience and the phylogenetic relationships of plants have both been proposed to influence herbivore-plant interactions and plant invasion success. However, the direction and magnitude of these effects, and how such patterns are altered with increasing temperature, are rarely studied. Through laboratory functional response (FR) experiments, we tested whether the per capita feeding efficiency of an invasive generalist herbivore, the golden apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata, is dependent on the biogeographic origin and phylogenetic relatedness of...

Elemental analysis of soil in the Ningbo watershed, China

A. Meharg, C. Meharg, Y. Zhu & G. Li
Elemental analysis of 80 soil samples taken in the Ningbo Watershed, in the Zhangxi catchment, Eastern China. Variables measured include As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, P, Pb, and lead isotope ratios along with concentrations of Zn, Ca and K. Data was collected in March 2016 and analysed at Queens Belfast University. The data was collected and analysed as part of a NERC NSFC funded multi project research programme UK- China Critical Zone Observation Programme.
