Brief description

This dataset contains information gathered from automatic weather stations (model: Environdata, Warwick, Queensland) located at 13 sites in the Simpson Desert. The weather stations record min, max and average temperature for each day. This is an ongoing dataset that has been recording measured temperature data since 1995.

The research data is stored with a Microsoft Access database and is approximately 50MB

This data was collected with the following Australian Research Council grant funding:

  • 1995 to 1997 - Impact of feral predation on populations of small vertebrates in arid Australia.
  • 1995 to 2000 - Determinants of local abundance and diversity of small mammals in arid Australia; the role of oases and regional processes.
  • 1996 to 1998 - Determinants of abundance and diversity of marsupials in Arid Australia; role of facilitation.
  • 1998 to 1999 - Diversity of lizards in arid Australia: a keystone role for termites.
  • 1999 to 2001 - Morphological and functional plasticity in Australian populations of the House mouse, Mus musculus domesticus.
  • 2000 - The impact of rainfall on seed abundance and diversity in arid Australia.
  • 2001 to 2003 - Population dynamics of Australian desert rodents; effects of competition for food with ants.
  • 2004 to 2006 - Boom and bust: the role of fire and rain in driving the dynamics of seeds and rodents in arid Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0451749.
  • 2004 to 2008 - Desert island biogeography: vertebrate dynamics after fire-induced fragmentation of habitat in central Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0452475.
  • 2006 to 2009 - Avoiding environmental bankruptcy: the grazing impacts of red kangaroos and sheep http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/LP0668879.
  • 2007 to 2009 - Biodiversity enhancement in Arid Australia: the importance of micro-refugia and biotic interactions http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0773754.
  • 2009 to 2013 - The renaissance predator: complex predator-prey interactions and vertebrate diversity in arid Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0988535.
