  • MultiMOVE is an R package that contains fitted niche models for almost 1500 plant species in Great Britain. This package allows the user to access these models, which have been fitted using multiple statistical techniques, to make predictions of species occurrence from specified environmental data. It also allows plotting of relationships between species' occurrence and individual covariates so the user can see what effect each environmental variable has on the specific species in question. The package is built under R 3.1.2 and depends on R packages 'leaps', 'earth', 'fields', 'mgcv', 'stringr', 'gsubfn', 'randomForest' and 'nnet'. Full details about this application can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/94ae1a5a-2a28-4315-8d4b-35ae964fc3b9

  • [THIS APPLICATION HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN]. MultiMOVE is an R package that contains fitted niche models for almost 1500 plant species in Great Britain. This package allows the user to access these models, which have been fitted using multiple statistical techniques, to make predictions of species occurrence from specified environmental data. It also allows plotting of relationships between species' occurrence and individual covariates so the user can see what effect each environmental variable has on the specific species in question. The package is built under R 2.10.1 and depends on R packages 'leaps', 'earth', 'fields' and 'mgcv'.

  • Data and associated papers. Ocean acidification and the Permo-Triassic mass extinction. Ediacaran metazoan reefs from the Nama Group, Namibia. NERC Grant Re-inventing the planet: The Neoproterozoic revolution in oxygenation, biogeochemistry and biological complexity.

  • This dataset contains measurements of herbivory and the potential controls on herbivory for nitrogen-fixing and non-fixing trees in a mature tropical forest of Panama. Data include herbivory measures on 1,626 leaves from 350 seedlings belonging to 43 species, 23 nitrogen-fixing species, 20 non-fixing species. Herbivory metrics are presented at the leaf and seedling level. The data also includes leaf chemical and physical traits hypothesized to influence herbivory at the species level, and seedling-level traits such as stem length and growth rate. Data were collected in 2017 by measuring leaf area missing on seedlings in the BCI 50 ha plot seedling census in order to determine whether fixers have higher rates of herbivory than non-fixers, and what traits govern herbivory. Data were collected by W. Barker, S.J. Wright, L. Comita, B. Sedio and colleagues. Funders of research generating the data include the Natural Environment Research Council, U.S. National Science Foundation, Leverhulme Trust, British Council, Society of Experimental Biology Company of Biologists, University of Leeds Priestly International Centre for Climate and Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/67c95112-edee-435f-9355-9d8bab3a5634

  • SOMBASE is a tool for looking at marine molluscs in the seas around Antarctica. Using a database and the latest mapping technology it is possible to display all the places where a family, genus or species has been found on an electronic map. These maps show us how widely spread different organisms are and if they prefer a particular area or type of habitat. The database can also be used to address questions about biodiversity in the seas around Antarctica and how it''s unique environment affects which animals are found there. SOMBASE contains comprehensive distribution records of Antarctic, Magellanic, and Sub-Antarctic Gastropods and Bivalves as well as records for many other species from the Southern Hemisphere. Based upon published records and British Antarctic Survey data these distribution maps form part of a biogeographic database, which also includes taxonomic, ecological and habitat data. The database contains information on over 3,250 species from more than 3,800 locations.

  • This dataset contains high resolution measurements of tree motion in response to wind at six sites. The data was collected using sensors mounted directly onto the tree trunk. The sites are: Rivox, Kershope, Kyloe and Clocaenog in the UK. Guanica in Puerto Rico and six open-grown trees from Australia.

  • The dataset contains records of Drosophila flies and associated parasitic wasps collected along two elevational (temperature) gradients from Australian rainforest site. The data is presented at the individual Drosophila pupae level. It describes patterns of parasitism levels from 14 sites and the structure of quantitative food webs at six sites. Also included are temperature records from each site. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/85657c4c-54c9-4d02-a262-455ea1c38d95
