Data from: Long-term belowground effects of grassland management: the key role of liming

Jemma Heyburn, Paul McKenzie, Michael J. Crawley & Dario A. Fornara
The functioning of human-managed grassland ecosystems strongly depends on how common management practices will affect grassland ‘belowground compartment’ including soil biogeochemistry and plant roots. Key questions remain about how animal grazing, liming (e.g. the addition of CaCO3 to soils), and nutrient fertilization might affect, in the long-term, soil nutrient cycling and multiple root traits. Here we focus on a mesotrophic grassland located in Berkshire, UK, where contrasting levels of rabbit grazing, liming and different inorganic...

Data from: Cascading effects of thermally-induced anemone bleaching on associated anemonefish hormonal stress response and reproduction

Ricardo Beldade, Agathe Blandin, Rory O'Donnell & Suzanne C. Mills
Organisms can behaviorally, physiologically, and morphologically adjust to environmental variation via integrative hormonal mechanisms, ultimately allowing animals to cope with environmental change. The stress response to environmental and social changes commonly promotes survival at the expense of reproduction. However, despite climate change impacts on population declines and diversity loss, few studies have attributed hormonal stress responses, or their regulatory effects, to climate change in the wild. Here, we report hormonal and fitness responses of individual...
