Data from: Seasonal progression and differences in major floral resource use by bees and hoverflies in a diverse horticultural and agricultural landscape revealed by DNA metabarcoding

Abigail Lowe, Laura Jones, Georgina Brennan, Simon Creer & Natasha De Vere
Gardens are important habitats for pollinators, providing floral resources and nesting sites. There are high levels of public support for growing ‘pollinator-friendly’ plants but whilst plant recommendation lists are available, they are usually inconsistent, poorly supported by scientific research and target a narrow group of pollinators. In order to supply the most appropriate resources, there is a clear need to understand foraging preferences, for a range of pollinators, across the season within horticultural landscapes. Using...

Translin facilitates RNA polymerase II dissociation and suppresses genome instability during RNase H2- and Dicer-deficiency (data files)

Ramsay McFarlane
The conserved nucleic acid binding protein Translin contributes to numerous facets of mammalian biology and genetic diseases. It was first identified as a binder of cancer-associated chromosomal translocation breakpoint junctions leading to the suggestion that it was involved in genetic recombination. With a paralogous partner protein, Trax, Translin has subsequently been found to form a hetero-octomeric RNase complex that drives some of its functions, including passenger strand removal in RNA interference (RNAi). The Translin-Trax complex...

Plant-root pathogenic fungal and plant-mycorrhizal fungal association networks in a subtropical forest

Chunchao Zhu, Zihui Wang, Wenqi Luo, Jiayi Feng, Yongfa Chen, Dong He, M. D. Farnon Ellwood, Chengjin Chu & Yuangzhi Li
Although rhizosphere fungi are essential for plant survival and ecosystem functioning, little is known about the processes that structure plant–fungal association networks. In this study, we constructed association networks between 43 plant species and two groups of root-associated fungi (mycorrhizal and pathogenic fungi; MF and PF, respectively) in a diverse subtropical forest. We then evaluated the modularity of plant–MF and plant–PF networks and linked them to the functional traits and phylogenies of both plants and...

Single time point sampling of site characteristics, soil parameters and soil greenhouse gas emissions for extensive and intensive sheep-farming sites in North Wales and Devon, 2016

A.F. Charteris, P. Harris, K.A. Marsden, I.M. Harris, Z. Guo, D.A. Beaumont, H. Taylor, G. Sanfratello, D.L. Jones, S.C.M. Johnson, M.J. Whelan, N. Howden, H. Sint, D.R. Chadwick & L.M. Cárdenas
The data pertains to a single time point ‘snapshot’ spatial sampling of site characteristics, soil parameters and soil greenhouse gas emissions for two sites (Extensive and Intensive). The extensively managed site (‘Extensive’; 240-340 m above sea level; a.s.l.) consisted of an 11.5 ha semi-improved, sheep-grazed pasture at Bangor University’s Henfaes Research Station, Abergwyngregyn, North Wales (53°13’13’’N, 4°0’34’’W). The intensively managed site (‘Intensive’; on average 160 m a.s.l.) was a 1.78 ha sheep-grazed pasture located in...

Nitrous oxide emissions and associated microbial diversity, soil biochemical properties and crop growth and yield from a field trial of winter barley with the addition of microplastics, Abergwyngregyn, UK, 2020-2021

L.M. Greenfield, M. Graf, S. Rengaraj, R. Bargiela, G.B. Williams, P.N. Golyshin, D.R. Chadwick & D.L. Jones
This dataset contains field data on nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, microbial community composition, crop yield and growth and soil biochemical properties. The field trial consisted of three different treatments of control, conventional microplastic addition and biodegradable microplastic addition where winter barley was grown. The data presented are from field and laboratory measurements. Data was collected by the data authors. The field trial was carried out from September 2020 to July 2021 at Henfaes Field Centre,...

Hurricane disturbance accelerated the thermophilization of a Jamaican montane forest

Edmund V. J. Tanner, Peter Bellingham, John Healey & Kenneth Feeley
Thermophilization – changes in community composition towards greater relative abundances of species associated with warmer environments – has been described for plants and animals in many locations around the world. Disturbances of various kinds have increased rates of thermophilization in temperate sites, and this has been proposed, but not demonstrated, for some tropical environments. In this study, we tested whether disturbance by a Category four hurricane in 1988 (Hurricane Gilbert) increased thermophilization in a Jamaican...

Linking variation in planktonic primary production to coral reef fish growth and condition

Ronan Roche
Within low nutrient tropical oceans, islands and atolls with higher primary production support higher reef fish biomass and reef organism abundance. External energy subsidies can be delivered onto reefs via a range of physical mechanisms. However, the influence of spatial variation in primary production on reef fish growth and condition is largely unknown. It is not yet clear how variability in food delivery onto a reef interacts with reef depth and slope, and affects reef...

Dry bulk density, loss on ignition and organic carbon content of surficial soils from English and Welsh salt marshes 2019

P. Ruranska, C.J.T. Ladd, C. Smeaton, M.W. Skov & W.E.N. Austin
The data provide a quantitative measure of the dry bulk density, soil texture, organic matter content (LOI) and organic carbon present within surface soils (up to a depth of 10 cm). A total of 212 samples from 49 sites across England and Wales were collected using modified syringe samplers as part of the citizen scientist programme CarbonQuest, part of Carbon Storage in Intertidal Environments (C-SIDE) project. Sites were chosen to represent contrasting habitats across England...

Data from: Fauxcurrence: simulating multi-species occurrences for null models in species distribution modelling and biogeography

Owen Osborne
This dataset contains GPS coordinates of occurrences from 22 species from Sulawesi, Indonesia. It was used in the manuscript "Fauxcurrence: simulating multi-species occurrences for null models in species distribution modelling and biogeography" to demonstrate the utility of the fauxcurrence R package (https://github.com/ogosborne/fauxcurrence).
