Appendix 1 contain the spreadsheet and guidelines for the collection of data on impacts of invasive alien plants (IAPS) on plant communities and Habitat Natura2000 in Italy. Appendix 2 contain data on impact mechanisms and outcomes of invasive alien plants (IAPs) in Italy, given per Administrative Regions. Appendix 2 contain data of 167 IAPs impacting Natura2000 Habitats in Italy.
Data for: Accumulation rates of natural radionuclides (40K, 210Pb, 226Ra, 238U, and 232Th) in topsoils due to long-term cultivations of water spinach (Ipomoea Aquatica Forssk.) and rice (Oryza Sativa L.) based on model assessments: A case study in Dong Nai Province, Vietnam
This dataset includes:
1) Description of 81 scenarios that were used to represent a continuum of potential changes in the hydrologic regime away from the baseline condition.
2) Synthetic flow duration curves for the 81 scenarios. There are tabs for both the Green River (USGS gage at Jensen Utah) and Yampa River (at Deerlodge Park).
3) The predicted change in plant presence and cover away from the baseline condition for each of the scenarios.
4) Flow duration curves for the three projected flow scenarios for the Yampa River along with the annual peak discharge data used to quantify the 2-yr, 3-yr, and 20-yr recurrence interval floods.

The social-ecological system of the Lake Manyara basin (Northern Tanzania), a UNESCO Biosphere reserve (BR) suffers from socio-economic and environmental problems due to decreasing water levels, erosion and land and water use conflicts. An integrated assessment of the social-ecological interactions of the area is required to support future sustainable management. Within the Drivers-Pressures-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) framework an integrated literature review and several methods of knowledge collection were combined to identify future management priorities and challenges. Annex 1 provides original fragments of information found in the selected literature, and coded as COD1, both for problems and causes of problems and for solutions. Focus groups with farmers and pastoralists collected a comprehensive set of statements about the situation. Annex 2 provides maps drawn by members of the authorities, the scientists, the pastoralists and the smallholder farmers in a community mapping exercise. Annex 3 provides a list of the 26 ecosystem services assessed by the participants during Focus Group 2. Annex 4 provides the questions used in the key informants interviews. Annex 5 provides the initial codes (letters) and corresponding merged codes (numbers) from key informants interviews. Annex 6 provides benchmarking results from the literature review and key-informants interviews.
Research Data 1 is the modified version of the Benchmark Simulation Model no.1 (Gernaey et al., 2014) dry weather influent file. It includes soluble inert nitrogen (S_NI) component as an input. It is used as a dynamic influent file for municipal wastewater in the study.
Research Data 2 is the dynamic influent file for leachate used in the study. It consists Activated Sludge Model no.1 (Henze et al., 2000) based influent characterization of old landfill leachate. The dynamic composition of leachate was generated based on Galleguillos and Vasel (2011).
