The datafile contains the composition and abundance of airborne pollen in the campus of the Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia. The data was collected for the period between September 2007 to December 2009 as part of a large research program looking at atmospheric particles and human health and phenology of urban planted environments (unpublished).
<br>Tropical rainforests play a powerful role in mediating the global climate through the exchange and storage of carbon and water. Climate change is expected to generate higher atmospheric water demand in many areas, potentially increasing the rate of evaporation. In this study, we show that higher evaporative demand may in fact lead to lower fluxes of water from tropical rainforests and a reduced capacity of these forests to store carbon.</br> The record contains meteorological and forest inventory data in addition to data on soil water potential, sapflow measurements and tree hydraulic vulnerability measures from Robson Creek and Cow Bay study sites in Far North Queensland. The measurements occurred over a period of two years form 2019 to 2020.
This data contains maximum vegetation height collected from airborne full waveform lidar and hyperspectral data in the VNIR bands in the Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt site in 2012
The record contains images of elevation profile of the Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt Site obtained from Airborne full waveform lidar and hyperspectral data in the VNIR bands using the a research aircraft of Flinders University – Airborne Research Australia (ARA).
The data set contains count data of amphibians from surveys of grazing properties in the Central and Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. Amphibians were surveyed using pitfall and funnel trapping along transects. Twelve properties were surveyed for the data set. Each property was surveyed 5 times for five trap nights on each survey between 2014 and 2015. A total of 2378 amphibians were captured from 11 different species during the surveys. All species captured were from one of three families: Limnodynastidae (three species), Myobatrachidae (four species) and Hylidae (four species).
This dataset contains predictions of the aboveground biomass density (AGBD) for Australia for 2020. Data were generated by the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) NASA mission, which used a full-waveform LIDAR attached to the International Space Station to provide the first global, high-resolution observations of forest vertical structure. Data include both Level 4A (~25 m footprints) and Gridded Level 4B (1 km x 1 km) Version 2. The Australian portion of the data was extracted from the original global datasets <a href="https://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=2056">GEDI L4A Footprint Level Aboveground Biomass Density</a> and <a href="https://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=2299">GEDI L4B Gridded Aboveground Biomass Density</a>.
This record contains data on the leaf level physiology, chemistry and structural traits from the Robson Creek Site, Far North Queensland measured in 2012. There are two data sets provided: 1) response variables containing parameters associated with photosynthetic light response curves (Al) and 2) response variables containing parameters associated with photosynthesis and intercellular carbon dioxide curves (ACi).
The datafile contains the composition and abundance of airborne pollen in the suburb of Casuarina, Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. The data was collected for the period between March 2004 to November 2005 as part of a large research program looking at atmospheric particles and human health (see Stevenson et al., 2007).
This data contains leaf area index calculated from Digital Cover Photography images taken at the core 1-ha plot within the Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt site in 2014.
This data set contains the count data of reptiles captured through pitfall and funnel trapping in surveys of grazing agricultural properties in the Central Tablelands of NSW, Australia. Experimental treatments were examined and additional environmental variables were recorded. Each of the 12 sites (farms) was surveyed five times, once between January and March 2014 and four times between October 2014 and March 2015. Each survey consisted of five trap nights. In total 5,040 traps were surveyed giving a combined total of 25,200 trapping nights. 1,242 captures were recorded from 28 species of reptiles. The majority of the species (19) were from the family Scincidae.
