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.

Workflow to create global species distribution model for Bombina orientalis, Xenopus laevis, and Pomacea from GBIF data and climate, land cover, topography, and MODIS derived predictors

This data bundle contains some of the inputs, all of the processing instructions and all outputs from a single VisTrails/SAHM workflow. This model specifically includes location data for Bombina orientalis and random background locations. Predictors include climatic, topographic, and land cover rasters. The three bundle documentation files are: 1) '_archive_bundle_metadata.xml' (this file)...

Potential suitable habitat for Cushenberry buckwheat (Eriogonum ovalifolium var. vineum) in the California desert

Here we present the map of potential suitable habitat for Cushenberry buckwheat (Eriogonum ovalifolium var. vineum). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be potentially 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...

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

nv_lvl7_coarsescale: Nevada 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...

Simulation to evaluate response of population models to annual trends in detectability

In 'Simulation to evaluate response of population models to annual trends in detectability', we provide data and R code necessary to create simulation scenarios and estimate trends with different population models (Monroe et al. 2019). Literature cited: Monroe, A. P., G. T. Wann, C. L. Aldridge, and P. S. Coates. 2019. The importance of simulation assumptions when evaluating detectability in...

Intraguild predation dataset for arthropods on tarweed plants

Data on intraguild predation of arthropods on the tarweed Hemizonia congesta. Arthropod counts (predators, herbivores, etc) and counts of entrapped arthropod corpses on focal plants in an experiment manipulating arthropod carrion amount and plant damage. Quantifications of plant damage and reproduction are presented.
