application/x-fascinator-package Biotic tropical seagrass seed dispersal by dugong and green sea turtles in the Great Barrier Reef

Tags:

Data is of tropical seagrass seeds found in dugong and/or green sea turtle faecal samples. Samples were collected from Cleveland Bay, Upstart Bay and Pioneer in the central Great Barrier Reef in 2014. Samples were kept in seawater from the site (not frozen) before being sieved in freshwater and scoped to find seagrass seeds. Seagrass seeds were stained in a Tetrazolium solution to determine viability. Data was recorded on the weight of faecal samples (wet and oven dried), number of seagrass seeds found and species, whether the seeds were viable after excretion and the number with split seed coats. Seagrass species found were Zostera muelleri (ZM), Halophila spp. (HO) (identification to genera only possible), Halophila decipiens (HD) and Halodule uninervis (HU)

application/x-fascinator-package Limited capacity for developmental thermal acclimation in three tropical wrasses

Tags:

This dataset contains performance data for three tropical wrasse species: Halichoeres melanurus, Halichoeres miniatus and Thalassoma amblycephalum. New recruits from each species were collected from the Cairns region of the central Great Barrier Reef and divided into a control ('cont' - 29 degrees celsius) and plus 2 (31 degrees celsius) temperature treatment. Fish were reared in these treatments for 11 weeks. After the 11 week acclimation period, performance metrics were tested at their developmental treatment and then switched into the opposing temperature treatment. After four days habituation, individuals were then tested at their new temperature treatment. 'H. mini' refers to Halichoeres miniatus; 'H. mel' refers to Halichoeres melanurus and 'T. ambly' refers to Thalassoma amblycephalum. 'MO2Rest' refers to resting metabolic rate; 'MO2Max' to maximum metabolic rate and 'Net MO2' to net aerobic scope.

application/x-fascinator-package Plantar pressures are elevated in people with longstanding diabetes-related foot ulcers during follow-up

Tags:

The enclosed data reports on a longitudinal observational study which assessed plantar pressures in a cohort of active diabetic foot ulcer patients over six months in comparison to age and sex matched diabetes controls without a history of foot ulcers. Twenty-one cases and 69 controls started the study and 16 cases and 63 controls completed the study. The peak plantar pressures and pressure-time integrals were assessed at three visits (baseline, first-follow up at 3 months and second follow-up at 6 months). For the first time the study results demonstrated that plantar pressures remain elevated at sites of ulceration throughout follow-up in people with foot ulcers with very little change over time.

This data-set contains raw (de-identified) data used for the analysis of the study "Plantar pressures are higher in cases with diabetic foot ulcers compared to controls despite a longer stance phase duration". 146 participants were included in the study: 21 DFU (Group 1) (patients with diabetic foot ulcers); 70 DM Control (Group 2) (patients with type 2 diabetes) and 55 healthy participants (Group 3). Data were collected in 5 trials (column label suffixes A-E) and were recorded within the plantar aspect of the foot at 10 anatomical locations: plantar surfaces of the hallux (T1), combined toes one to five (T2to5), metatarsal one (M1), metatarsal two (M2), metatarsal three (M3), metatarsal four (M4), metatarsal five (M5), the mid foot (Midfoot) , the medial rear foot (MHeel) and the lateral rear foot (LHeel). Data includes peak pressures in N/cm²; pressure time integral (PTI) in Ns/cm²; contact area of the foot in cm², estimated vertical ground reaction force (contact area multiplied by mean peak pressure, MPP) in N, maximum sensor pressures in N/cm² and body mass adjusted force (Spreadsheet 1) and stance times in ms (Spreadsheet 2)

application/x-fascinator-package Spatial prioritisation outputs in systematic conservation planning reflecting differences in spatial priorities based on changes in planning-unit size, thematic resolution of habitats, and socioeconomic costs

Tags:

This dataset contains raw spatial prioritisation outputs from the decision-support software tool Marxan. These include the two main outputs from prioritisations: 1) individual solutions created for each conservation scenario run (100 solutions each), and 2) selection frequency data of each of the 20 scenarios, detailing the relative importance of each planning unit in the spatial prioritisation. The allssolnfreq.csv file consists of selection frequency data for each planning unit for each of the 20 conservation prioritisation scenarios run. Selection frequency values reflect the number of times each planning unit was selected as part of a good solution (100 total per scenario). The allsols.csv files consists of each individual solution produced for each scenario (100 solutions per scenario, 20 scenarios total). Binary data, 0 representing unselected planning units; 1 representing selected planning units. Scenario code IDs reflect those used in publication to which these datasets relate. 

application/x-fascinator-package Potential allergens of the Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea gigas)

Tags:

The increasing production and consumption of molluscs are associated with a rise in the prevalence of mollusc allergy worldwide, currently affecting 0.2% to 1.3% of the general population. However, the elucidation of mollusc allergens, crucial for better diagnostics, still lags behind other seafood groups such as fish and crustacean. Genomic data have previously been utilized for the improved identification of non-food allergens by performing similarity searches using the BLAST program. Based on the published genome of the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) we aimed to identify the repertoire of potential allergen using bioinformatics analysis and sought to validate allergenicity using a combination of immuno-chemical methods and proteomic analysis. A repertoire of 25,982 genome-derived proteomes of the Pacific oyster were aligned with 2117 allergen sequences resulting in over 800 protein homologues. Of those, 95 proteins were potentially cross-reactive allergens due to high identity with known allergens (>50% identity). Analysis of the transcriptomic data showed the proteins were differentially expressed across tissue of the oyster.  

application/x-fascinator-package Physiological plasticity vs. inter-population variability: understanding drivers of hypoxia tolerance in a tropical estuarine fish

Tags:

This data-set contains oxygen consumption and haematology data collected in a study on the acclimation potential of barramundi to low-oxygen (hypoxia) exposure. Fish were exposed to diel-cycling hypoxia for 0 (control), 8 or 16 days. Each individual fish was used only once throughout this trial, and thus all measurements are independent. The full materials and methods are included in the related publication and as Chapter 3 of the author’s PhD thesis.
