Yep APNI (Australian Plant Name Index) list Australian Native and Naturalized plants as well as some weed species.
APNI includes some services for looking up plant names.
APC the Australian Plant Census is a list of the currently accepted names as recognised by CHAH the Council of Heads of Australian Herbaria. (http://www.anbg.gov.au/chah/)
You can find data related to the Canadian lynx and snowshoe hare pelt-trading records of the Hudson Bay Company, starting in 1845. It seems to be a standard dataset, described for instance in Predator-Prey Models.
The base repository is Lynx and Hare Data, and you can find for instance the csv file lynxhare.csv.
The Lotka-Volterra Models for predactor/...
There are a number of research papers/study on this subject.
This 1991 paper covers a lot of historical as well as data current at the time.

There are quite a few wildlife mapping datasets out there, and growing. Narrowing it down to species' is hit or miss, but if its a hit, you will be happily rewarded, as this data tends to be high quality, and uniquely interesting. Here's a few, look at JellyWatch in particular:
Christmas Bird Count
North American Breeding Bird Survey
I didn't get it: are you looking for synthtic datasets only, or are you looking for real time series data for validating your own ODE models?
In any case, try perhaps

Allen Downey's free online book Think Stats uses data from the National Survey of Family Growth to consider the question "Do First Babies Arrive Late?"
Section 1.3 of the book explains some use of the data. There is a newer version of the dataset (2006-2010) on the NSFG site.

I would start by looking at the NHanes data sets (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes.htm). They have many vital signs, so the heart rate would probably be there as well as ecg type measures in some of the data sets. I don't know about the stress or similar variables, but search the documentation, it would not surprise me if a question along those lines were ...
I don't know when this came along, but the Atlas of Living Australia now has an API which can (maybe) answer the question.
This query asks for every member of the plant kingdom for which there is a record showing its presence in a polygon which matches Australia:
The UCI Machine Learning Repository has one dataset from 2013 called Fertility
100 volunteers provide a semen sample analyzed according to the WHO 2010 criteria. Sperm concentration are related to socio-demographic data, environmental factors, health status, and life habits
The dataset is multivariate, and is likely to be used for regression or ...

Currently, the data on global male infertility is lacking—both in terms of prevalence estimates and men’s experiences across cultures—...
Brose, Cushing, Berlow et al: Body sizes of consumers and their resources
Here, we try to reduce such limitations by documenting body size ratios for 16,863 consumer–resource links. The data includes body size ratios from terrestrial (n = 12,398 links), marine (n = 2355 links), freshwater (n = 1,983 links) and soil (n = 51 links) ecosystems.

The repository has a folder called "PAMLdat" among other potential data sources:
iNaturalist has worldwide observations of biological organisms. You can do a bulk download here. This data is not strictly "open", because login is required. However it is free to register.

Some data I have found and that I need and maybe anybody needs:

Other common GIS formats
Along with the GIS file types listed in the original question, these are (in my experience) the most common formats in which GIS data is distributed. There are many other GIS file formats, but data is usually shared in the ones listed here.
MDB - ESRI personal geodatabase build on Microsoft Access Database format
North American Breeding Bird Survey is what you'll most likely find useful; BBS has two data options.
Migratory Bird Data Center has some more data too.

All of these datasets include Canada, but ...

This resource integrates point observations, species range maps, and assessment of reserves (forthcoming). This database integrates data from GBIF as well with protected areas and ecoregion maps.
I don't know what exactly you would qualify as 'biological' data, but I would classify predator/prey relationships as 'ecological' ... and therefore I'd look in one of two places:
DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Searches about 30 archives of environmental & ecological data.
Dryad, a repository for evolutionary & environmental data. ...

The WHO and World Bank can provide the data in your desired format if you reach out to the contact associated with the dataset.
