Abstract

This dataset contains Moth and Aphid catch abundance data from the Rothamsted Insect Survey light-trap and suction trap networks. The dataset is a supplement to Bell et al (2020) (https://doi.org/10.1111/icad.12412) and can be used to reproduce the R analyses presented.

Data collection period01 Jan 1969 to end of 31 Dec 2016
Geographic coverageGreat Britain
Data collection method

The Rothamsted Insect Survey operates two trap networks throughout the United Kingdom that sample aphids and moths using suction-traps and light-traps, respectively. More information about the network and data collection processes can be found at https://insectsurvey.com/.

Data preparation and processing activities

Data were extracted from the RIS database ‘Paul’ that holds records of moths and aphids. For each site-year between 1969 and 2016, we calculated the total number of individuals summed across all species caught in that site-year.

The files aphid_linear_estimates.csv, aphid_non_linear_estimates.csv, moth_linear_estimates.csv and moth_non_linear_estimates.csv are linear and non-linear trend predictions derived from the AphidTidy and MothTidy datasets using the poptrend R package summary.trend function. This function is used for computing the yearly estimates.

The files aphid_random_linear_effects.csv and moth_random_linear_effects.csv are random year effects components visible following the call plot.trend when tempRE = TRUE in the call to ptrend.
