1. Rivers are dynamic ecosystems in which both human impacts and climate-driven drying events are increasingly common. These anthropogenic and natural stressors interact to influence the biodiversity and functioning of river ecosystems. Disentangling ecological responses to these interacting stressors is necessary to guide management actions that support ecosystems adapting to global change. 2. We analysed the independent and interactive effects of human impacts and natural drying on aquatic invertebrate communities—a key biotic group used to...

Signal value of stress behaviour

Jamie Whitehouse
Physiological and psychological stress are accompanied by nonverbal behaviour across a wide range of species. The function of this ‘stress behaviour’ is not well understood but is often assumed to be read by others as a cue to stress. Displaying signs of weakness is, however, difficult to understand from an evolutionary perspective and therefore further investigation into why these behaviours exist is needed. Here, we test whether displacement behaviours (i.e., those known to be associated...

Interviews with survivors of Albanian dictatorship across generations

Blerina Kellezi
The interviews are 86.9 minutes long on average and range from 32 to 240 minutes. The dataset contains 27 anonymised transcripts in the original language together with documentation, including the coding structure used for data analysis, the interview schedule and the informed consent procedures.

Data from: Body size and shape responses to warming and resource competition

Hanrong Tan, Andrew Hirst, David Atkinson & Pavel Kratina
Body size is a fundamental trait that impacts many aspects of species biology and ecology. It is in turn influenced by a suite of environmental factors, and often decreases with warming. Although environmental conditions can also impact body shape, which is another functional trait that influences locomotion, resource acquisition, and potentially physiological processes, such responses are poorly understood and rarely quantified. We experimentally tested the independent and combined effects of environmental temperature, resource level, and...

Fear of COVID-19, loneliness, smartphone addiction, and mental wellbeing among the Turkish general population: a serial mediation model

A. Rifat Kayis, Begum Satici, M. Engin Deniz, Seydi Ahmet Satici & Mark D. Griffiths
The novel coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has become a major health problem worldwide. The impact of COVID-19 has also been associated with psychological and social problems. The main objective of the present study was to examine the associations between fear of COVID-19 and mental wellbeing, through a serial mediation analysis that included loneliness and smartphone addiction. Utilising convenience sampling from 73 of 81 cities in Turkey via the web-based survey the present study comprised 773 participants...

Dataset for analysing spatiotemporal dynamics of large carnivores in Kasungu National Park, Malawi

Robert Davis, Richard Yarnell, Louise Gentle, Antonio Uzal, William Mgoola & Emma Stone
Effective conservation management requires an understanding of the spatiotemporal dynamics driving large carnivore density and resource partitioning. In African ecosystems, reduced prey populations and the loss of competing guild members, most notably lion (Panthera leo), are expected to increase levels of competition between remaining carnivores. Consequently, intraguild relationships can be altered, potentially increasing the risk of further population decline. Kasungu National Park (KNP), Malawi, is an example of a conservation area that has experienced large-scale...

Factors used to Influence Mobile Health Application Rating

Milon Biswas, M Shamim Kaiser, Marzia Hoque Tania, Russell Kabir, Mufti Mahmud & Atika Ahmad Kemal
Over the last five years, mobile health applications (mHealthapp) have evolved exponentially to assess and support our health and well-being. This paper presents an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabledmHealth app rating tool which takes multidimensional measures such as starrating, user’s review and features declared by the developer to generate apprating. However, currently, there is very little conceptual understanding onhow users’ reviews affect app rating from a multi-dimensional perspective. This study applies artificial intelligence (AI)-based text mining technique...
