Soil properties and soil greenhouse gas emissions in biochar-amended bioenergy soils undergoing long term field incubation

S.D.C. Case, N.P. McNamara, D.S. Reay, J.S. Chaplow & J. Whitaker
Data collected during field and laboratory experiments to investigate the long-term effects of biochar application to soil on greenhouse gas emissions in a bioenergy plantation (Miscanthus X. giganteus). Analysis included monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O)), soil physical (bulk density and soil moisture ) and soil chemical analyses (total carbon (C) and nitrogen (N), extractable ammonium and nitrate). Biochar was applied to plots in a bioenergy plantation...

This dataset consists of stock (area) data for Broad Habitats across Great Britain in 2007. The data are national estimates generated by analysing the sample data from 591 1km squares and scaling up to a national level. The data are summarized as habitat area per Land Class (areas of similar environmental characteristics). The sample sites are chosen from a stratified random sample, based on a 15 by 15 km grid of GB and using the...

K.J. Kirby, S.M. Smart, H.I.J. Black, R.G.H. Bunce, P.M. Corney, R.J. Smithers & M.W. Shaw
This dataset consists of the vascular plants, bryophytes and lichens recorded in plots in 103 woodland sites surveyed across Great Britain in 1971 and again over the growing seasons of 2000, 2002 and 2003 (referred to as '2001 survey'), using exactly the same field methods. Data were collected under projects managed by The Nature Conservancy (in 1971) and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (in 2001).

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), chlorobenzenes (CB) and organochlorine pesticides (OC) data from rivers [LOIS]

D. Leach, A. Meharg, J. Wright, N. Bachiller-Jareno, I. Tindall & R. Moore
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), chlorobenzenes (CB) and organochlorine pesticides (OC) data from river water collected at various sites within the Humber catchment area as part of the Land Ocean Interaction Study project (LOIS). Data were collected at regular weekly intervals and intermittently during periods of high flows. All sites were samples from early 1994 to the end of 1996 except for O12, which was sampled from November 1994 till November 1996. The sampling was carried out...

Location data of worker bumblebees across an agricultural landscape in Buckinghamshire, UK

C. Carvell, A.F.G. Bourke, S. Dreier, M.S. Heard, W.C. Jordan, S. Sumner, J. Wang & J.W. Redhead
This dataset contains locations of worker bumblebees of five species (Bombus terrestris, B. lapidarius, B. pascuorum, B. hortorum, B. ruderatus) across an agricultural landscape centred on the Hillesden Estate, Buckinghamshire, UK. Locations were recorded in the field using a handheld GPS unit. Workers were non-lethally DNA sampled between June and August 2011, and genetic analysis used to confirm species and assign individuals to full-sib groups (colonies). Data were collected as part of a project led...

UK ecological status map

R. Dyer & T. Oliver
A spatial indicator of ecological status for valuation of biodiversity across the UK, based on species occurrence records was developed. UK species occurrence data were collated from the Biological Records Centre (BRC). The mean ecological status was calculated across all taxonomic groups for the 2000 to 2013 time period, relative to the species richness maximums from the 1970-1990 time period, showing differences as colours.

LiDAR based Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data for South West England

F. Ferraccioli, F. Gerard, C. Robinson, T. Jordan, M. Biszczuk, L. Ireland, M. Beasley, A. Vidamour, A. Barker, R. Arnold, M. Dinn, A. Fox & A. Howard
This is a high resolution spatial dataset of Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data in South West England. The DTM along with a Digital Surface Model (DSM) cover an area of 9424 km2 that includes all the land west of Exmouth (i.e. west of circa 3 degrees 21 minutes West). The DTM represents the topographic model (height) of the bare earth. The dataset is a part of outcomes from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology South...

Operational taxonomic units for soil bacteria in the Wolf and Tamar catchments

R. Griffiths, R.F. Pywell, J. Peyton, P. Nuttall, R. Sarlej & B. Thomson
This dataset contains operational taxonomic units for soil bacteria collected from various land use categories in the Wolf and Tamar catchments in South west England. A range of soils were targeted from the Tamar region comprising a range of land uses. Approximate location of sampling sites was determined from maps to provide good spatial coverage of the catchment. Exact sites were determined in the field, considering accessibility and other logistic, and soils taken.

Vegetation survey data from Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog Forest

A. Sowerby & B.A. Emmett
This dataset contains vegetation survey data from an upland heath site in the Clocaenog Forest. Vegetation was surveyed in the experimental plots at the Climoor site in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. The vegetation at the site is a typical UK upland heathland, dominated by Calluna vulgaris, with Vaccinium myrtillus and Empetrum nigrum also being present in the vegetation understory. In each year, measurements were taken at a...

Soil respiration data from Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog Forest

A. Sowerby & B.A. Emmett
This dataset contains soil respiration data from the Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog forest, north-east Wales. Measurements began in March 1999 at the field site, and were repeated in approximately bi-weekly intervals until Oct 2013 (although there are some larger gaps for technical or logistical reasons in this 14 year dataset). The data were collected using 3 different methods/machines over the years: static chambers, soil respiration chamber and EGM-4 (from PP Systems), and soil respiration chamber...
