UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) Cairngorm spider data 2004-2019

C. Andrews, R. Snazell & J. Dick
This dataset consists of count data (by gender) for all species of spider collected from three habitats (mire, dwarf-shrub heath, pine woodland) at the Cairngorms Environmental Change Network (ECN) site between 2004 and 2019. Spiders were collected in pitfall traps on a two-weekly basis between March and early November. Each habitat contained 10 pitfall traps, spaced 10 m apart. Samples were aggregated by habitat and collection date prior to analysis. The number of male and...

Historical (1950-2005) and projected (2006-2099) hydrological model (HMF-WA) estimates of monthly mean and annual maximum river flows across West Africa driven by CMIP5 projected climate data

P. Rameshwaran, V.A. Bell, H.N. Davies & A.L. Kay
This dataset comprises seven ensembles of hydrological model estimates of monthly mean and annual maximum river flows (m3s-1) on a 0.1° × 0.1° grid (approximate grid of 10 km × 10 km) across West Africa for historical (1950 to 2005) and projected future (2006 to 2099) periods. This dataset is the output from the Hydrological Modelling Framework for West Africa, or “HMF-WA” model. The ensembles correspond to historical and three projected future climate scenarios (RCP2.6,...

Data from: Among-individual and within-individual variation in seasonal migration covaries with subsequent reproductive success in a partially-migratory bird

Jane Reid, Moray Souter, Sarah Fenn, Paul Acker, Ana Payo-Payo, Sarah Burthe, Sarah Wanless & Francis Daunt
Within-individual and among-individual variation in expression of key environmentally-sensitive traits, and associated variation in fitness components occurring within and between years, determine the extents of phenotypic plasticity and selection and shape population responses to changing environments. Reversible seasonal migration is one key trait that directly mediates spatial escape from seasonally-deteriorating environments, causing spatio-seasonal population dynamics. Yet, within-individual and among-individual variation in seasonal migration versus year-round residence, and dynamic associations with subsequent reproductive success, have not...

Data from: Location, but not defensive genotype, determines ectomycorrhizal community composition in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) seedlings

Jim Downie, Andy F. S. Taylor, Glenn Iason, Ben Moore, Jonathan Silvertown, Stephen Cavers & Richard Ennos
1. For successful colonisation of host roots, ectomycorrhizal (EM) fungi must overcome host defence systems, and defensive phenotypes have previously been shown to affect the community composition of EM fungi associated with hosts. Secondary metabolites, such as terpenes, form a core part of these defence systems, but it is not yet understood whether variation in these constitutive defences can result in variation in colonisation of hosts by specific fungal species. 2. We planted seedlings from...

Improving assessments of data-limited populations using life-history theory

Cat Horswill, Andrea Manica, Francis Daunt, Mark Newell, Sarah Wanless, Matthew Wood & Jason Matthiopoulos
1. Predicting how populations may respond to climate change and anthropogenic pressures requires detailed knowledge of demographic traits, such as survival and reproduction. However, the availability of these data varies greatly across space and taxa. Therefore, it is common practice to conduct population assessments by filling in missing values from surrogate species or other populations of the same species. Using these independent surrogate values concurrently with observed data neglects the life‐history trade‐offs that connect the...

Caterpillar masses from grass margins and hedgerows under streetlights, Oxfordshire, UK, 2018-2020

D.H. Boyes, D.M. Evans, R. Fox, M.S. Parsons & M.J.O. Pocock
This dataset contains information about moth caterpillar masses at sites lit by streetlights (LED; high pressure sodium and low-pressure sodium) and unlit control sites. Caterpillars were sampled at 26 matched pairs of lit and unlit sites between 2018 and 2020 as part of a study of the effects of street lighting on the early life stages of moths.

Grid-to-Grid model estimates of soil moisture for Great Britain and Northern Ireland driven by UK Climate Projections 2018 (UKCP18) Regional (12km) data (1980 to 2080)

A.L. Kay, A.C. Rudd, H.N. Davies, R.A. Lane & V.A. Bell
Gridded hydrological model soil moisture estimates on a 1km grid over Great Britain and Northern Ireland for the period Dec 1980 - Nov 2080 (units: m water/m soil), driven by UK Climate Projections 2018 (UKCP18) Regional (12km) data (1980 to 2080). The data are provided in gridded netCDF files. There is one file for each ensemble member and separate files for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. To aid interpretation, two additional spatial datasets are provided:...
