Coccinellidae competition

W.T Hentley & M.N Brien
This dataset contains count data for the number of each aphid life stage (nymphal stages 1-4 and adult) consumed by coccinellids in two lab-based experiments. The unit of observation (row) in the dataset is aphid life stage, therefore five rows correspond to one focal coccinellid. We experimentally assessed changes in feeding behaviour (prey preference and consumption rate) of native UK coccinellid species (Adalia bipunctata and Coccinella septempunctata), whose populations are, respectively, declining and stable, when...

It does not require specialist geomorphological or botanical expertise but consistent recognition of features included on the form is essential. To ensure consistency of recording all surveyors must be accredited, and recording...

Climate hydrology and ecology research support system potential evapotranspiration dataset for Great Britain (1961-2015) [CHESS-PE]

E.L. Robinson, E. Blyth, D.B. Clark, E. Comyn-Platt, J. Finch & A.C. Rudd
1km resolution gridded potential evapotranspiration over Great Britain for the years 1961-2015. This dataset contains time series of two potential evapotranspiration variables. The first is potential evapotranspiration (PET) (mm/day) calculated using the Penman-Monteith equation [1] for FAO-defined well-watered grass [2]. The second is potential evapotranspiration with interception correction (PETI) (mm/day), which adds a correction for interception by a well-watered grass on days in which there is rainfall. Both PET and PETI are calculated using the...
