Potential suitable habitat for Desert cymopterus (Cymopterus deserticola) in the California desert

Here we present the map of potential suitable habitat for Desert cymopterus (Cymopterus deserticola). 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 original model...

Hierarchically nested and biologically relevant monitoring frameworks for Greater Sage-grouse, 2019, Cluster Level 6 (Wyoming), Interim

wy_lvl6_coarsescale: Wyoming hierarchical cluster level 6 (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...

Greater sage-grouse population change (percent change) in a moderate oil and gas development, high 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...

Potential productivity and change estimates for eight grassland species to evaluate vulnerability to climate change in the southern Great Plains

This data set includes the relative production scenarios for eight (8) grass species based on linear models from Epstein, et al. (1998). We selected two indicator species for each community: shortgrass prairie: blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis; BOGR) and buffalo grass (Bouteloua dactyloides; BODA); mixedgrass prairie: sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula; BOCU) and little bluestem (...
