Data from: Persistence, impacts and environmental drivers of covert infections in invertebrate hosts

InĂªs Fontes, Hanna Hartikainen, Chris Williams & Beth Okamura
Background: Persistent covert infections of the myxozoan, Tetracapsuloides bryosalmonae, in primary invertebrate hosts (the freshwater bryozoan, Fredericella sultana) have been proposed to represent a reservoir for proliferative kidney disease in secondary fish hosts. However, we have limited understanding of how covert infections persist and vary in bryozoan populations over time and space and how they may impact these populations. In addition, previous studies have likely underestimated covert infection prevalence. To improve our understanding of the...

RSMP Baseline Dataset

Keith Cooper
This dataset was compiled for the Regional Seabed Monitoring Plan (RSMP) baseline assessment reported in Cooper and Barry (2017). The dataset comprises of 33,198 macrofaunal samples (83% with associated data on sediment particle size composition) covering large parts of the UK continental shelf. Whilst most samples come from existing datasets, also included are 2,500 new samples collected specifically for the purpose of this study. These new samples were collected during 2014-2016 from the main English...
