Probable suitable habitat for Triple-ribbed milkvetch (Astragalus tricarinatus) in the California desert

Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Triple-ribbed milkvetch (Astragalus tricarinatus). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be suitable for the species, and the average standardized habitat suitability score for each location.Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model inputs....

Greater sage-grouse population change (percent change) in a high oil and gas development, low population estimate scenario, and with no effects of climate change (2006-2062)

This data set defines boundaries of oil and gas project areas, greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) core areas, and non-core and non-project areas within the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI; southwestern Wyoming). Specifically, the data represents results from the manuscript “Combined influences of future oil and gas development and climate on potential...

Hierarchically nested and biologically relevant monitoring frameworks for Greater Sage-grouse, 2019, Cluster Level 3 (Nevada), Interim

nv_lvl3_moderatescale: Nevada hierarchical cluster level 3 (moderate-scale) for Greater sage-grouseWe developed a hierarchical clustering approach that identifies biologically relevant landscape units that can 1) be used as a long-term population monitoring framework, 2) be repeated across the Greater sage-grouse range, 3) be used to track the outcomes of local and regional populations by...

Probable suitable habitat for Pale-yellow layia (Layia heterotricha) in the California desert

Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Pale-yellow layia (Layia heterotricha). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be suitable for the species, and the average standardized habitat suitability score for each location.Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model inputs. However, maps...

Lignin phenol data for solid phase peat cores collected from the Alligator River and Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuges

This dataset includes lignin phenol monomer concentrations normalized to 100 mg of organic carbon. These analyses were conducted on select intervals from peat cores collected at the Alligator River (AR) and Great Dismal Swamp (GDS) National Wildlife Refuges in North Carolina and Virginia/North Carolina, USA, respectively. The eight lignin phenol monomers provide unique proxy information on...
