  • Vegetation surveys from 35 transects in 2005 and 34 transects in 2006, focusing on tree and shrub abundance and sizes, in Monks Wood National Nature Reserve (Cambridgeshire, England). The transects were located in occupied territories of Marsh Tits, and also unoccupied areas of the wood used as controls, in order to sample the birds' habitat. However, the surveys also provide representative and widespread sampling of the overall woodland. The surveys include all woody tree and shrub species, and also standing and fallen deadwood, in different size categories. Fieldwork was undertaken and supervised by the authors and funded by the Natural Environment Research Council's National Capability investment.

  • The results of an analysis of the connectivity of sixteen priority habitat networks in England using the Condatis methodology. The dataset includes conductance scores for each of the priority habitat networks (an overall assessment of how connected the habitat network is), the flow scores for each contiguous habitat patch within each of the habitat networks (the importance of that patch to connectivity), as well as details of protection. Additionally, the dataset includes data and scripts needed to run a demonstration Condatis analysis, and produced the figures used in Travers et al., 2021 (in prep.). Dispersal distances of 2, 4 and 8 km were used as inputs into Condatis. The outputs of connectivity assessments using those dispersal figures were geometrically averaged to provide results summing up the connectedness of a habitat network over a range of dispersal abilities. To determine how much connectivity (flow), and which patches were protected in each habitat network they were overlaid with SSSI and NNR spatial data. If more than 50% of a patch’s area was covered by a protected area it was determined to be protected.

  • The dataset comprises of plant species recorded from plots located within the Moor House National Nature Reserve, with associated plot information such as slope and aspect, also peat depth. The sampling strategy was based on a grid, using 2 x 2 metre square plots. The majority of the plots were recorded in the summers of 2008 and 2009 by surveyors employed by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.
