Data from: Predators regulate prey species sorting and spatial distribution in microbial landscapes

George Livingston, Kayoko Fukumori, Diogo Provete, Masanobu Kawachi, Noriko Takamura, Mathew Leibold & Mathew A. Leibold
1. The role of predation in determining the metacommunity assembly model of prey communities is understudied relative to that of interspecific competition among prey. Previous work on metacommunity dynamics of competing species has shown that sorting by habitat patch type and spatial patterning can be affected by disturbances. 2. Microcosms offer a useful model system to test the effect of multi-trophic interactions and disturbance on metacommunity dynamics. Here, we investigated the potential role of predators...

Data from: Estimating animal density without individual recognition using information derivable exclusively from camera traps

Yoshihiro Nakashima, Keita Fukasawa & Hiromitsu Samejima
1. Efficient and reliable methods for estimating animal density are essential to wildlife conservation and management. Camera trapping is an increasingly popular tool in this area of wildlife research , with further potential arising from technological improvements, such as video recording functions that allow for behavioural observation of animals. This information may be useful in the estimation of animal density, even without individual recognition. Although several models applicable to species lacking individual markings (i.e. unmarked...
