Probable suitable habitat for Barstow woolly sunflower (Eriophyllum mohavense) in the California desert

Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Barstow woolly sunflower (Eriophyllum mohavense). 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, Cluster Level 2 (Wyoming), Interim

wy_lvl2_finescale: Wyoming hierarchical cluster level 2 (fine-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 comparing...

Ovary mass and stable hydrogen isotope data for resident and migratory female dark-eyed juncos.

This dataset includes ovary mass and stable hydrogen isotope compositions of feathers and claws from resident and migratory female dark-eyed juncos (Junco hyemalis) collected during early spring at Mountain Lake Biological Station, Pembroke, Virginia. A total of 18 migrant and 15 resident female dark-eyed juncos, a songbird that exhibits seasonal sympatry, were caught during March-Ap

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'
