Data and Tools

Our interdisciplinary, integrated science teams develop various data sets and tools in support of the USGS mission areas. These tools then aid natural resource managers in decision making and support of the complex issues they face in today's world.

Hierarchically nested and biologically relevant monitoring frameworks for Greater Sage-grouse, 2019, Cluster Level 7 (Wyoming), Interim

wy_lvl7_coarsescale: Wyoming hierarchical cluster level 7 (coarse-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 Creamy blazing star (Mentzelia tridentata) in the California desert

Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Creamy blazing star (Mentzelia tridentata). 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.

Hierarchically nested and biologically relevant monitoring frameworks for Greater Sage-grouse, 2019, Nevada and Wyoming, Interim

We 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 comparing population changes across scales, and 4) be used to inform where to best spatially target...

State-and-Transition Simulation Model of Buffelgrass in Saguaro National Park (2014-2044)

This is a spatially-explicit state-and-transition simulation model of buffelgrass dynamics in Saguaro National Park. Buffelgrass is an invasive grass spreading in the park. The model represents uninvaded and invaded parts of the desert ecosystem including transition pathways related to management activities and includes a connection to a fire behavior model. The model was built using the ST-...
