H2 adsorption data on sub-bituminous coal as a function of pressure. Hydrogen flooding of a coal core. Micro CT imaging of the effect on coal swelling after hydrogen injection. Hydrogen is trapped, and no swelling is observed indicating that coal might be a good candidate for the storage of hydrogen.

Using dietary metabarcoding analyses to characterise waterbirds-agriculture interactions

Amelie Corriveau, Marcel Klaassen, Stephen Garnett, Mirjam Kaestli, Matthew Power, Mahsa Mousavi-Derazmahalleh, Megan Coghlan, Keith Christian, Michael Bunce & Hamish Campbell
Globally, the use of agricultural fields by waterbirds has increased, resulting in conflicts with farmers. Designing effective management strategies to resolve these conflicts requires understanding the species’ resource use. Dietary analyses can shed light on the extent of consumption of agricultural crops and surrounding natural resources, as well as the potential relationship between diet and an individual’s body condition and ultimately its fitness. We examined the dietary composition of the tropical magpie goose (Anseranas semipalmata),...

Population connectivity and genetic offset in the spawning coral Acropora digitifera in Western Australia

Arne A. S. Adam, Luke Thomas, Jim Underwood, James Gilmour & Zoe T. Richards
Anthropogenic climate change has caused widespread loss of species biodiversity and ecosystem productivity across the globe, particularly on tropical coral reefs. Predicting the future vulnerability of reef-building corals, the foundation species of coral reef ecosystems, is crucial for cost-effective conservation planning in the Anthropocene. In this study, we combine regional population genetic connectivity and seascape analyses to explore patterns of genetic offset (the mismatch of gene-environmental associations under future climate conditions) in Acropora digitifera across...

MWA GLEAM Survey Raw Data 2013-2015

The GaLactic and Extragalactic All-sky MWA (GLEAM) survey comprises three months of observations spread over three years using the MWA between 72 and 231 MHz. The surveyed area includes all sky south of declination 30deg and each part of the sky is revisted at least three times. About 50% of the data have been processed and published in continuum catalogues by Hurley-Walker et al. (2017, 2019c) and Franzen et al. (2021). This collection concerns the...

DNA metabarcoding confirms primary targets and breadth of diet for coral reef butterflyfishes

Darren Coker, Joseph DiBattista, Michael Stat, Roberto Arrigoni, James Reimer, Tullia Terraneo, Rodrigo Villalobos, Jessica Nowicki, Michael Bunce & Michael Berumen
Understanding species-specific resource requirements is paramount in managing and protecting biodiversity in a world where environmental quality is in decline. Dietary data can inform predator–prey relationships and how changes in prey availability impact different species. However, for many coral reef fishes, prey and predatory events can be difficult to observe and identify, both in situ and within examined stomach samples. Here we applied DNA metabarcoding of stomach content samples for eleven Red Sea butterflyfish species...

Data from: Scat DNA provides important data for effective monitoring of mammal and bird biodiversity

Mieke Van Der Heyde, P. W. Bateman, Michael Bunce, Grant Wardell-Johnson, Nicole White & Paul Nevill
Fauna has long been neglected in the monitoring of ecological restoration, despite the key role they play in ecosystem function. Vertebrate surveys can be time consuming and costly, often requiring multiple methodologies and taxonomic expertise, making comprehensive monitoring cost prohibitive. Here we evaluate a new method of assessing mammal and bird diversity through the genetic identification of scat collections. Using DNA metabarcoding of scat collections from three bioregions we generated bird and mammalian assemblage data...

Data from: Getting to the root of organic inputs in groundwaters: stygofaunal plant consumption in a calcrete aquifer

Mattia Saccò
Groundwater environments interact with and support subterranean biota as well as superficial aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. However, knowledge of subterranean energy flows remains incomplete. Cross-boundary investigations are needed to better understand the trophic structures of groundwater ecosystems and their reliance on carbon inputs from aboveground. In this study we used carbon and nitrogen stable isotope analyses combined with radiocarbon fingerprints to characterise organic flows in groundwater ecosystems. We coupled these data with DNA metabarcoding of...

Feeding in the Devonian antiarch placoderm fishes: a study based upon morpho-functional analysis of jaws

Zerina Johanson, Oleg Lebedev, Alexander Kuznetsov, Aleksey Tsessarsky, Kate Trinajstic & Farkhad Isakhodzayev
Antiarch placoderm fishes were an abundant component of the Middle Paleozoic vertebrate assemblages. Despite a large number of known taxa and specimens, the morphology and function of the skeletal elements of their jaws is inadequately known. Because of this, questions regarding their feeding modes and their roles in the trophic webs remains open. We present a skeleto-muscular model of the antiarch jaw apparatus with an attempt to reconstruct its potential biomechanical function. The position of...

Population genomics of a predatory mammal reveals patterns of decline and impacts of exposure to toxic toads

Brenton Von Takach
Mammal declines across northern Australia are one of the major biodiversity loss events occurring globally. There has been no regional assessment of the implications of these species declines for genomic diversity. To address this, we conducted a species-wide assessment of genomic diversity in the northern quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus), an Endangered marsupial carnivore. We used next-generation sequencing methods to genotype 10,191 SNPs in 352 individuals from across a 3220 km length of the continent, investigating patterns...

Data from: Drought then wildfire reveals a compound disturbance in a resprouting forest

Lewis Walden
The frequency and intensity of forest disturbances such as drought and fire are increasing globally, with an increased likelihood of multiple disturbance events occurring in short succession. Disturbances layered over one another may influence the likelihood or intensity of subsequent events (a linked disturbance) or impact response and recovery trajectories (a compound disturbance), with substantial implications for ecological spatiotemporal vulnerability. This study evaluates evidence for disturbance interactions of drought followed by wildfire in a resprouting...

Data from: eDNA metabarcoding of log hollow sediments and soils highlights the importance of substrate type, frequency of sampling and animal size, for vertebrate species detection

Ethan Ryan, Bill Bateman, Kristen Fernandes, Mieke Van Der Heyde & Paul Nevill
Fauna monitoring often relies on visual monitoring techniques such as camera trappings, which have biases leading to underestimates of vertebrate species diversity. Environmental DNA (eDNA) has emerged as a new source of biodiversity data that may improve biomonitoring; however, eDNA based assessments of species richness remain relatively untested in terrestrial environments. We investigated the suitability of fallen log hollow sediment as a source of vertebrate eDNA, across two sites in south-western Australia - one with...

High functional diversity in deep-sea fish communities and increasing intra-specific trait variation with increasing latitude

Elisabeth Myers, Marti Anderson, Libby Liggins, Euan Harvey, Clive Roberts & David Eme
Variation in both inter- and intra-specific traits affect community dynamics, yet we know little regarding the relative importance of external environmental filters vs internal biotic interactions that shape the functional space of communities along broad-scale environmental gradients, such as latitude, elevation or depth. We examined changes in several key aspects of functional alpha-diversity for marine fishes along depth and latitude gradients by quantifying intra- and inter-specific richness, dispersion and regularity in functional trait space. We...
