Authority, Identity and Ethics of Data Re-publication and Duplication

Lesley Wyborn , Kirsten Elger , Jens Klump , Kerstin Lehnert & Mingfang Wu
Today, research data is widely available in digital form, datasets are easily accessible online and the dataset creator should consider it advantageous as this leads to greater uptake. However, the downside is that digital datasets can be easily copied, duplicated in multiple places, and re-published through more than one repository or service. Particularly with web services, mirroring resources is a common practice, especially in online GIS packages and dashboards. ‘Copy WMS link’ buttons are common,...

Counting the bodies: estimating the numbers and spatial variation of Australian reptiles, birds and mammals killed by two invasive mesopredators

Alyson Stobo-Wilson, Brett Murphy, Sarah Legge, Hernan Caceres-Escobar, David Chapple, Heather Crawford, Stuart Dawson, Chris Dickman, Tim Doherty, Patricia Fleming, Stephen Garnett, Matthew Gentle, Thomas Newsome, Russell Palmer, Matthew Rees, Euan Ritchie, James Speed, John-Michael Stuart, Andres Suarez-Castro, Eilysh Thompson, Ayesha Tulloch, Jeff Turpin & John Woinarski
Aim: Introduced predators negatively impact biodiversity globally, with insular fauna often most severely affected. Here, we assess spatial variation in the number of terrestrial vertebrates (excluding amphibians) killed by two mammalian mesopredators introduced to Australia, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) and feral cat (Felis catus). We aim to identify prey groups that suffer especially high rates of predation, and regions where losses to foxes and/or cats are most substantial. Location: Australia Methods: We draw information...

microCT Scan Images of Hydrogen Storage in Coal

Stefan Iglauer, Hamed Akhondzadeh, Hussein Abid, Adriana Paluszny, Alireza Keshavarz, Muhammad Ali, Ausama Giwelli, Lionel Esteban, Joel Sarout & Maxim Lebedev
H2 adsorption data on sub-bituminous coal as a function of pressure. Hydrogen flooding of a coal core. Micro CT imaging of the effect on coal swelling after hydrogen injection. Hydrogen is trapped, and no swelling is observed indicating that coal might be a good candidate for the storage of hydrogen.

Calculations for: Detector dog work assessing probability of detection for Yellow crazy ant

Benjamin Hoffmann
The use of detector dogs within environmental programs has increased greatly over the past few decades, yet their search methods are not standardised, and variation in dog performance remains not well quantified or understood. There is much science to be done to improve the general utility of detector dogs, especially for invertebrate surveys. We report research for detector dog work conducted as part of yellow crazy ant eradication. One dog was first used to quantify...

Marine biodiversity patterns in coastal Australian waters revealed by a three-year environmental DNA survey

Tina Berry, Megan Coghlan, Benjamin Saunders, Anthony Richardson, Mathew Power, Euan Harvey, Simon Jarman, Oliver Berry, Claire Davies & Michael Bunce
Aim To test the capacity of eDNA to characterise the spatial and seasonal patterns found within a range of zooplankton communities, and investigate links with concurrent abiotic data collected as part of Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) programme. Location Samples were sourced seasonally for three years from nine Pan-Australian marine sites (n=90). Methods Here we apply a multi-assay metabarcoding approach to environmental DNA extracted from a rare long-term collection of bulk plankton samples. Six...

The Minke Whale Project

R Alastair Birtles, Matthew Curnock, Susan Sobtzick, Peter Arnold & Peter Valentine
The Minke Whale Project (based at James Cook University, North Queensland, Australia) conducts multi-disciplinary research into dwarf minke whale biology and behaviour, the social and economic values of the whales and the sustainable management of swim-with-whales tourism. The MWP research team works collaboratively with the GBR swim-with-minke whales tourism industry, Reef managers and wildlife conservation NGOs. Dwarf minke whales visit the northern Great Barrier Reef each austral winter, forming the only known predictable aggregation of...

Data Journals - Bridging the worlds of data and research

David Carlson , Kirsten Elger , Jens Klump , Ge Peng & Johannes Wagner
In less than one decade the open-access data journal Earth System Science Data (ESSD, a member of the Copernicus Open Access Publisher family) grew from a start-up venture into one of the highest-rated journals in global environmental science. Stimulated by data needs of the International Polar Year 2007-2008, ESSD now serves a very broad community of data providers and users, ensuring that users get free and easy access to quality data products and that providers...

The Australian AuScope Virtual Research Environments (AVRE): a Flexible, Service-Oriented Geoscience Platform to Empower Researchers for the Global Challenges of Today and Those of the Future

Jens Klump , Tim Rawling , Carsten Friedrich , Ulrich Engelke , Vincent Fazio & Lesley Wyborn
AuScope is Australia’s National Geoscience Research Infrastructure Program and seeks to provide a world-class research physical and digital infrastructure to help tackle Australia's key geoscience challenges. Launched in 2007, AuScope’s data-generating infrastructures range from VLBI telescopes to geochemistry/geochronology laboratories and geophysical data acquisitions. To utilise data collected by these infrastructures and equivalents elsewhere, the Australian Geoscience Research and Government communities have collaborated on building a suite of data portals, tools, software and virtual laboratories that...

Impact of water resources development on connectivity and primary productivity across a tropical river floodplain

Bianca Molinari, Ben Stewart-Koster, Tim J. Malthus & Stuart E. Bunn
1. Floodplain wetlands provide an important subsidy for riverine food webs as sites of high algal production. However, this subsidy depends on the degree of landscape connectivity during flood pulses, which provides the opportunity for movement of higher order consumers between rivers and floodplains to access these productive habitats. Changes in floodplain inundation extent and duration, due to variable wet season flows or water resources development (WRD), can impact landscape connectivity and ultimately the magnitude...

Investigating gas-exchange performance between wheat landraces and commercial varieties

Robert Sharwood, Demi Sargent, Gonzalo Estavillo & Robert Furbank
Improvement of photosynthetic traits in crops to increase yield potential and crop resilience has recently become a major breeding target. Synthetic biology and genetic technologies offer unparalleled opportunities to create new genetics for photosynthetic traits driven by existing fundamental knowledge. However, large “gene bank” collections of germplasm comprising of historical collections of crop species and their relatives offer a wealth of opportunities to find novel allelic variation in the key steps of photosynthesis, to identify...

Data from: Rhytiphora: a phylogenetic and morphological study of Australia’s largest longhorn beetle genus

Lauren Ashman, Diana Hartley, Mengjie Jin, David Rowell, Luisa Teasdale, Adam Slipinski & Andreas Zwick
Rhytiphora Audinet-Serville is the most speciose longhorn beetle (Cerambycidae) genus in Australia, with about 200 species (from nearly 40 former genera, now synonymised into one) distributed across the entire continent. We used mitochondrial genome data from whole genome shotgun sequencing and COI barcoding of museum specimens to reconstruct the phylogeny of 68 Rhytiphora species, and analyse their morphological diversity and biogeographic history. We recovered a monophyletic Rhytiphora containing two distinct clades, within which all of...
