This global spatial layer of contextual intactness aims to identify priority areas around the world where protection and management will best promote biodiversity persistence. This layer was derived b... morey integrating both the condition of each focal location and the condition of all other locations expected to have supported shared species with the focal location prior to any habitat degradation. The contextual intactness of each location (grid cell) is the proportion of habitat predicted to have once supported a similar assemblage of species but is now in worse condition than the focal location. This was derived using the BILBI global biodiversity assessment system, by integrating: (1) an updated map of the terrestrial human footprint on natural systems, and; (2) generalized dissimilarity models of species assemblage turnover for terrestrial vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants.less
The value of intact habitat for conserving biodiversity - - Published 23 Mar 2020
Outdoor freshwater mesocosms spiked with varying concentrations of copper were sampled in order to profile microbial communities. Samples collected include water, sediment and cellulose baits. DNA was... more extracted from all sample types. In addition to this, RNA was extracted from sediment samples and reverse transcribed to get cDNA. The v4 region of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene was amplified using Earth Microbiome primers 515F and 806R.
The 16S rRNA gene amplicons were sequenced on the Illumina MiSeq platform with 250 base pair-end reads. Forward and reverse read alignments, quality filtering, chimera checking and OTU clustering were performed using USEARCH v9.
OTU sequences were submitted to GenBank, however, 130 were found to be too novel for submission and thus are made available here.less

This data product provides the expected plant community composition within 175 grid cells (250 m resolution) of Tasmania, Australia. The data are provided as a spreadsheet (.csv) detailing the plant s... morepecies (rows) expected to be either present (1) or absent (0) in each of the 175 grid cells (columns). less

This collection identifies the spider communities associated with cotton in different locations throughout Australia. Seven sites extending over 20 degrees of latitude were sampled. At each site 1-3 f... moreields were sampled 3-5 times during the cotton growing season using pitfall traps and beatsheets. All the spiders collected were identified to family.less
