  • The dataset is the lake polygons from the UK Lakes Portal (https://eip.ceh.ac.uk/apps/lakes/), originally based on OS PANORAMA but this dataset includes data from a number of sources. It has a basic set of attributes including the water body ID (WBID) as well as the computed area and perimeter of each lake. The WBID is commonly used across research institutions and is the same ID as used on the UK Lakes Portal, where more information can be found on each lake in this dataset. This is v3.6, which follows the same versioning as the underlying database. Although the database has seen the majority of the changes since version 1, the polygons have also been changed and improved over that time, mostly fixing issues with lake outlines, but also some new sites being added.

  • This dataset includes the dates and/or duration of all the environmental and phenological events that could be derived from a series of photographs taken by a fixed-point repeat camera system at the UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) site in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland. The data covers the timing of permanent winter snow fall and subsequent spring melt on northern and eastern facing hill slopes between 2002 and 2019, as well as invertebrate (spittlebug spittlemass) and plant (heather flowering, scots pine leaf flushing) phenological events between 2010 and 2019. Three photographs were taken on a daily basis to maximise the chances of cloud free images, with the clearest image used for analysis. Event detection was generally achieved using manual assessment, but heather flowering showed a high degree of subjectivity, and so an automated pixel colour counting method was used to determine the peak flowering season. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.

  • This dataset contains genotypes (in three digit-format) for unique clones of the freshwater bryozoan species Cristatella mucedo and Fredericella sultana at microsatellite loci and representing sampling sites across the UK. Cristatella mucedo data additionally covers Northern Ireland. Full details about this nonGeographicDataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/9d63e68b-2499-40fb-b05b-4fa2a55399fc

  • This is a dataset on mortality costs and reproductive success from intergroup conflict in banded mongooses, collected from a wild population of banded mongooses on the Mweya Peninsula, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda between 2000-2019. We observed naturally occurring, aggressive interactions between social groups and recorded data on individual mortality occurring during and as a result of fighting. We used long term observations of reproductive events to determine individual reproductive success, measured as the total number of offspring assigned to each individual over the lifetime, and the number of offspring born to each individual from extra-group mating. We recorded data on oestrus events in social groups to determine when focal and rival groups were in oestrus simultaneously, and whether they were involved in an intergroup interaction with each other. These data were collected to examine the fitness costs and benefits of intergroup conflict.

  • The dataset contains borehole groundwater levels and physico-chemical parameters for the period May 2017 to June 2018 including; (1) near-monthly measurements of water table depth, groundwater temperature, pH, electrical conductivity and total dissolved solids obtained from manual sampling of 22 boreholes; and (2) higher temporal resolution (5-min time-step) timeseries of water table depth, groundwater temperature and electrical conductivity obtained from automatic dataloggers in 3 of the abovementioned boreholes.

  • Data comprise a set of broadleaf afforestation scenarios (provided as netCDF files) that may be run with the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES), a community land surface model. The scenarios are based on the CEH Land Cover 2000 classification. Afforestation takes place according to catchment structure and existing land cover. Scenarios cover twelve river catchments in Great Britain: Dee, Tay, Ouse, Ure, Derwent, Thames, Avon, Tamar, Severn at Bewdley , Severn at Haw Bridge, Ribble and Clyde. Afforestation scenarios relate to two catchment properties: - (1) River network structure and (2) Land use. By using these two catchment properties, in conjunction with different extents of afforestation, up to 288 afforestation scenarios per catchment are generated. This dataset was created as part of the NERC doctoral training partnerships (grant number NE/L002612/1).

  • The resource consists of cartesian coordinates, expressed in units of pixels for groups of eight individual fish, swimming in a shoal. The fish were filmed from above with a high resolution video camera. The data were generated from the images and video using automated two-dimensional tracking software. A food stimulus delivering a single food reward was presented six times per trial. The data were collected between July and August 2017 in a controlled fish laboratory at the University of Bristol by the data authors. The data were collected to test the effects of group behaviour in fish shoals on foraging performance. There are instances where one or more fish in a frame could not be tracked. Where such instances occur are indicated in the data files. The research was funded through NERC grant NE/P012639/1 Hunger and knowledge: foraging decisions in an uncertain and social world All procedures regarding the use of animals in research followed United Kingdom guidelines and were approved by the University of Bristol Ethical Review Group (UIN UB/17/060).

  • [This nonGeographicDataset is embargoed until May 31, 2022]. The resource consists of cartesian coordinates, expressed in units of pixels, for fish swimming individually, in groups of six individuals, and in groups of six individuals while presented repeatedly with a food stimulus delivering two food items until satiation. The fish were filmed from above with a high resolution video camera. The data were generated from the images and video using automated two-dimensional tracking software. The data were collected between September 2019 and March 2020 in a controlled fish laboratory at the University of Bristol by the data authors. The data were collected to test how individual temperament and the acquisition of knowledge and satiation interact when animals make foraging decisions in groups. There are instances where one or more fish in a frame could not be tracked. Where such instances occur are indicated in the data files. The research was funded through NERC grant NE/P012639/1 Hunger and knowledge: foraging decisions in an uncertain and social world. All procedures regarding the use of animals in research followed United Kingdom guidelines and were approved by the University of Bristol Ethical Review Group (UIN UB/17/060).

  • This data resource provides plot-level plant occurrence data for the first six years (2015-2020) of the National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS, covering the UK, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man). Data consist of individual observations of plants, and other habitat characteristics, at the metre-scale; observations are accompanied by percentage cover information recorded according to the Domin frequency-abundance scale commonly used in plant community ecology. Other information provided includes the plot type (size, shape, according to the NPMS classification), the volunteer-recorded NPMS habitat, the date of sampling, and information regarding the spatial location of the plot. Information contained within the metadata file should allow users to reconstruct the sampling history (including gaps) of any plot that has been sampled within the NPMS scheme between 2015 and 20120. The NPMS is organised and funded by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland, Plantlife and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. This work partly supported through Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.
