  • We used mRNA-seq to identify the RNA profiles in three tissue types (brain, fat body and ovary) in two time points (after 10% cohort death (TP1) and 60% cohort death (TP2)) for two treatments (egg removal (R) and egg removal and replacement (C)), with up to six biological replicates per tissue/time point/treatment combination. Each sample was sequenced on two lanes (L1 and L2) of the sequencing machine in order to generate sufficient numbers of reads while controlling for between lane variability. This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, Gene Expression Omnibus (NCBI GEO). Accession Number: GSE172422

  • Geographic distances between pairs of wild bumblebee colonies across an agricultural landscape centred on the Hillesden Estate, Buckinghamshire, UK. Colony locations were estimated using the foraging locations of workers sampled in summer 2011, genotyped and grouped into full-sib families. The spatial structure of five Bombus species (Bombus terrestris, B. lapidarius, B. pascuorum, B. hortorum and B. ruderatus) was determined, with inter-colony distances varying from 7 to 5264 metres. Data were collected as part of a project led by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, funded under the Insect Pollinators Initiative.

  • Microsatellite data for five species of common and declining bumblebee (Bombus terrestris, B. lapidarius, B. pascuorum, B. hortorum and B. ruderatus) collected across the Hillesden Estate, Buckinghamshire, UK, in summer 2011. Worker genotypes were determined from individuals sampled across an agricultural landscape and queen genotypes were reconstructed from sampled worker offspring. Data were collected as part of a project led by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, funded under the Insect Pollinators Initiative.

  • Data comprise concentration ratios for lead and 210Pb in terrestrial wildlife and plants, and residual maximum likelihood (REML) model values for taxons (order, family and genus). Pb was used as an example of the derivation and application of a REML model for terrestrial wildlife species. The model outputs consists of a mean value for each taxa on a common scale after REML adjustment (referred to as the ‘REML mean’) taking account of the random factor (i.e. site). The REML mean value represents a relative scaling value. Funding for preparing this data set was provided by the TREE project (http://www.ceh.ac.uk/tree) funded by the NERC, the Environment Agency and Radioactive Waste Management Ltd. under the RATE programme.
