The data set “Movement behaviour of the carabid beetle Pterostichus melanarius in crops and at a habitat interface explains patterns of population redistribution in the field” was the basis for research into the movement behavior of the carabidae beetle Pterostichus melanarius in crops and on a habitat interface to explain patterns of redistribution of the population in the field.

The data set “Animals in Roman Times in the Dutch Eastern River Area” is the result of an archeological zoological study of animal remains found during excavations of settlements from Roman times in Nijmegen and the surrounding area. The purpose of the study was to obtain detailed information about the animals, in particular about their function.

Nature management to reduce the impact of wildlife on their habitat can be done in many ways, among which the removal of animals (by culling or translocation) is most often used. However, there are alternative ways to control densities in the wild, such as opening or closing water points. The dataset “Modeling elephant-mediated cascading effects of water point closure” contains the underlying data for a study on manipulating large herbivores by closing water points. It has been suggested to remove artificial water points in order to change the distribution of African elephants, which are found in high densities in national parks in South Africa and which are thought to have a destructive effect on vegetation.
