Data associated with 'Aggregation Behaviour of E-SARA Asphaltene Fractions Studied by Small-angle Neutron Scattering'

Dewi Ballard, Peiqi Qiao, Beatrice Cattoz, Peter Dowding, Sylvain Prevost, Mohammed Alshamsi, Thibaut V J Charpentier, Kevin Roberts, Zhenghe Xu & David Harbottle
Using the Extended-SARA method to fractionate asphaltenes based on their interfacial activity, the current study reports the first results on the estimated size and shape of interfacially active (IAA) and remaining (RA) asphaltene nanoaggregates. These fractions have been reported to exhibit distinctly different chemical architectures that influence the size of asphaltene clusters in good and poor solvents. However, little is known about the building blocks, commonly referred to as nanoaggregates, which form these clusters and...

Proactive conservation to prevent habitat losses to agricultural expansion

David Williams, Michael Clark, Graeme M. Buchanan, G. Francesco Ficetola, Carlo Rondinini & David Tilman
The projected loss of millions of square kilometres of natural ecosystems to meet future demand for food, animal feed, fibre, and bioenergy crops is likely to massively escalate threats to biodiversity. Reducing these threats requires a detailed knowledge of how and where they are likely to be most severe. We developed a geographically explicit model of future agricultural land clearance based on observed historic changes and combine the outputs with species-specific habitat preferences for 19,859...

Data from: Maxwell-Cattaneo magnetoconvection dataset

David Hughes, Ibrahim Eltayeb & Michael Proctor
We study the instability of a Bénard layer subject to a vertical uniform magnetic field, in which the fluid obeys the Maxwell-Cattaneo (MC) heat flux-temperature relation. We extend the work of Bissell (Proc. R. Soc. A, 472: 20160649, 2016) to non-zero values of the magnetic Prandtl number pm. With non-zero pm, the order of the dispersion relation is increased, leading to considerably richer behaviour. An asymptotic analysis at large values of the Chandrasekhar number Q...

Data from: Longevity, body dimension and reproductive mode drive differences in aquatic versus terrestrial life history strategies

Pol Capdevila, Maria Beger, Simone Blomberg, Bernat Hereu, Cristina Linares & Roberto Salguero-Gómez
1. Aquatic and terrestrial environments display stark differences in key environmental factors and phylogenetic composition but their consequences for the evolution of species’ life history strategies remain poorly understood. 2. Here, we examine whether and how life history strategies vary between terrestrial and aquatic species. We use demographic information for 685 terrestrial and 122 aquatic animal and plant species to estimate key life history traits. We then use phylogenetically corrected least squares regression to explore...

Data associated with ‘Molecular Characterization of Strongly and Weakly Interfacially Active Asphaltenes by High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry’

Dewi Ballard, Martha L. Chacón-Patiño, Peiqi Qiao, Kevin Roberts, Robert Rae, Peter Dowding, Zhenghe Xu & David Harbottle
Asphaltenes are a complex mixture of molecular structures with a variety of functionalities, which in turn impacts their physical properties. Discriminating between asphaltenes that are strongly and weakly interfacially active is providing new direction to mitigate asphaltene-related problems. Whole asphaltenes (WA) were extracted from a South American heavy crude oil, further fractionated into interfacially active asphaltenes (IAA) and remaining asphaltenes (RA), and molecularly characterized by positive-ion (+) atmospheric pressure photoionization (APPI) using a 9.4 tesla...

Data associated with 'Reaction Rate Governs the Viscoelasticity and Nanostructure of Folded Protein Hydrogels'

Anders Aufderhorst-Roberts
Hydrogels constructed from folded protein domains are of increasing interest as resilient and responsive biomaterials, but their optimisation for applications requires time-consuming and costly molecular design. Here, we explore a complementary approach to control their properties by examining the influence of crosslinking rate on the structure and viscoelastic response of a model hydrogel constructed from photo-chemically crosslinked bovine serum albumin (BSA). Gelation is observed to follow a heterogeneous nucleation pathway in which BSA monomers crosslink...

A major combustion aerosol event had a negligible impact on the atmospheric ice-nucleating particle population

Michael Adams, Mark Tarn, Alberto Sanchez-Marroquin, Grace Porter, Daniel O'Sullivan, Alexander Harrison, Zhiqiang Cui, Jesús Vergara Temprado, Federico Carotenuto, Mark Holden, Martin Daily, Thomas Whale, Sebastien Sikora, Ian Burke, Jung-uk Shim, Jim McQuaid & Benjamin Murray
Clouds containing supercooled water are important for both climate and weather, but our knowledge of which aerosol particle types nucleate ice in these clouds is far from complete. Combustion aerosols have strong anthropogenic sources and if these aerosol types were to nucleate ice in clouds they might exert a climate forcing. Here, we quantified the atmospheric ice-nucleating particle (INP) concentrations during the UK’s annual Bonfire Night celebrations, which are characterised by strong anthropogenic emissions of...

Data associated with 'Solute Specific Perturbations to Water Structure and Dynamics in Tertiary Aqueous Solution'

Harrison Laurent, Daniel Baker, Alan Soper, Michael Ries & Lorna Dougan
Liquid water is known as the “universal” solvent, capable of dissolving a wide variety of different solutes. While much is now understood about the impact of solutes on water structure in binary solutions, it is much more challenging to deconvolute the potentially competing effects of more complex solutions. Here, we present a correlative NMR and neutron diffraction study to examine the solute induced perturbation of water structure and dynamics in a tertiary solution containing the...

Development of an automatic integrated gene detection system for novel severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (SARS-CoV2)

Yuchang Li, Jing Li, Ying Zhang, Lizhong Dai, Lin Li, Juan Liu, Sen Zhang, Xiaoyan Wu, Yi Hu, Chengfeng Qin, Tao Jiang & Xiaoping Kang
In December 2019, Wuhan, China suffered a serious outbreak of a novel coronavirus infectious disease (COVID) caused by novel severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (SARS-CoV 2). To quickly identify the pathogen, we designed and screened primer sets, and established a sensitive and specific qRT-PCR assay for SARS-CoV 2; the lower limit of detection (LOD) was 15 (95% CI: 9.8–21) copies per reaction. We combined this qRT-PCR assay with an automatic integration system for nucleic acid...

Reliably predicting pollinator abundance: challenges of calibrating process-based ecological models

Emma Gardner, Tom Breeze, Yann Clough, Henrik Smith, Katherine Baldock, Alistair Campbell, Michael Garratt, Mark Gillespie, William Kunin, Megan McKerchar, Jane Memmott, Simon Potts, Deepa Senapathi, Graham Stone, Felix Wäckers, Duncan Westbury, Andrew Wilby & Thomas Oliver
1. Pollination is a key ecosystem service for global agriculture but evidence of pollinator population declines is growing. Reliable spatial modelling of pollinator abundance is essential if we are to identify areas at risk of pollination service deficit and effectively target resources to support pollinator populations. Many models exist which predict pollinator abundance but few have been calibrated against observational data from multiple habitats to ensure their predictions are accurate. 2. We selected the most...

Estimation of environmental, genetic and parental age at conception effects on telomere length in a wild mammal

Sil H.J. Van Lieshout, Alexandra M. Sparks, Amanda Bretman, Chris Newman, Christina D. Buesching, Terry Burke, David W. Macdonald & Hannah L. Dugdale
Understanding individual variation in fitness-related traits requires separating the environmental and genetic determinants. Telomeres are protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that are thought to be a biomarker of senescence as their length predicts mortality risk and reflect the physiological consequences of environmental conditions. The relative contribution of genetic and environmental factors to individual variation in telomere length is however unclear, yet important for understanding its evolutionary dynamics. In particular, the evidence for transgenerational...
