Vegetation structure and fuel dynamics in fire-prone, Mediterranean-type Banksia woodlands

Ryan Tangney, R.G. Miller, J.B. Fontaine, W.P. Veber, K.X. Ruthrof & B.P. Miller
Increasing extreme wildfire occurrence globally is boosting demand to understand the fuel dynamics and fire risk of fire-prone areas. This is particularly pressing in fire-prone, Mediterranean climate-type vegetation, such as the Banksia woodlands surrounding metropolitan Perth, southwestern Australia. Despite an extensive wildland-urban interface and frequent fire occurrence, fuel accumulation and the spatial variation in fuel risk is not well quantified across the broad extent of this ecosystem. Using a space for time sampling approach to...

Data from: Transgenerational plasticity responses of oysters to ocean acidification differ with habitat

Laura Parker, Elliot Scanes, Wayne O'Connor & Pauline Ross
This dataset contains data from a two-part experiment described in the paper: Transgenerational plasticity responses of oysters to ocean acidification differ with habitat, J Exp Biol jeb.239269. This paper assessed the role of tidal habitat on the existing and transgenerational response of larvae of the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata to ocean acidification caused by elevated carbon dioxide (CO2). In experiment 1, gravid Sydney rock oysters were collected from the subtidal and high intertidal zone...

Health condition data for Platypus from New South Wales and Victoria

Jana Stewart, Gilad Bino, Tahneal Hawke & Richard Kingsford
Platypuses (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) inhabit the permanent rivers and creeks of eastern Australia, from north Queensland to Tasmania, but are experiencing multiple and synergistic anthropogenic threats. Baseline information of health is vital for effective monitoring of populations but is currently sparse for mainland platypuses. Focusing on six hematology and serum chemistry metrics as indicators of health and nutrition (packed cell volume (PCV), total protein (TP), albumin, globulin, urea, creatinine, and triglycerides), we investigated their variation across...

Sex- and trait-specific silver-spoon effects of developmental environments, on ageing

Krish Sanghvi, Felix Zajitschek, Maider Iglesias-Carrasco & Megan L. Head
AbstractThe environment organisms experience during development can have effects which carry over into their adult lives. These developmental environments may not only affect adult traits at a given point in time, but also how these traits change with age. Generally, stressful developmental environments can lead to sub-optimal adult fitness traits and a faster deterioration of these traits with age. But whether these environments affect how performance traits change with age or whether they affect males...

The burden of size and growth for the juveniles of large mammalian herbivores: structural and functional constraints in the feeding biology of juveniles relative to adults in red kangaroos, Osphranter rufus

Terence Dawson, Melinda Norton, Suzette Rodoreda, Sarah Abbott & Steven McLeod
Juvenile mammals in their post weaning developmental stages face many challenges in transitioning to adulthood. Among large grazing species such as ruminant bovids and cervids an overarching challenge is acquiring and processing sufficient nutrients to survive and grow, with a gut that may not yet be fully developed. Marsupial kangaroos of Australia face similar challenges; they also digest vegetation by fermentation in a large foregut. In red kangaroos, Osphranter rufus (= Macropus rufus), the dominant...

Tspe_v1 (Telopea speciosissima) genome supplementary files for: Chromosome-level de novo genome assembly of Telopea speciosissima (New South Wales waratah) using long-reads, linked-reads and Hi-C

Stephanie Chen, Maurizio Rossetto, Marlien Van Der Merwe, Patricia Lu-Irving, Jia-Yee Yap, Hervé Sauquet, Greg Bourke, Timothy Amos, Jason Bragg & Richard Edwards
Telopea speciosissima, the New South Wales waratah, is an Australian endemic woody shrub in the family Proteaceae. Waratahs have great potential as a model clade to better understand processes of speciation, introgression and adaptation, and are significant from a horticultural perspective. Here, we report the first chromosome-level genome for T. speciosissima. Combining Oxford Nanopore long-reads, 10x Genomics Chromium linked-reads and Hi-C data, the assembly spans 823 Mb (scaffold N50 of 69.0 Mb) with 97.8 %...

The stabilising impact of natural selection on the allometry of sexual ornaments: Fish that escape locomotor constraints exhibit extravagant ornamentation

Thomas Summers & Terry Ord
1. Positive allometry has been considered a hallmark of sexual selection whereby larger males of superior condition develop disproportionately larger ornaments for their body size compared to smaller males of poorer condition. 2. Yet many structures known to be sexually selected often exhibit other allometric patterns. This has led to controversy over the utility of allometry in adequately capturing the signature of sexual selection, particularly if static (within population) and evolutionary (across species) allometries are...

Sydney Women and Sexual Health Data: 2004

Garrett Prestage
In the 2004 Sydney Women and Sexual Health (SWASH) survey, data were collected on social attachment to the gay and lesbian community; sexual identity and attraction; sexual partners and practices; drug use; health behaviour and knowledge; and age, education, employment, children, ethnicity and geographic location. Results were entered from the coded questionnaires and loaded into SPSS software for analysis. The data were cleaned and checked for internal consistency and, where inconsistencies were found, checked against...

2000 Male Out Survey Data

Susan Kippax
A large sample of homosexually active men was recruited through the mail-out, self complete questionnaire procedure. The participants represent a broad cross-section of the homosexually active population of Australia, both gay community attached and non gay community attached men. The resultant data based on this diverse sample of homosexually active men drawn from every corner of Australia complement those findings from periodic surveys conducted in principal gay communities. Data was collected on demographic variables, sexual...
