Potential suitable habitat for Tehachapi monardella (Monardella linoides ssp. Oblonga) in the California desert

Here we present the map of potential suitable habitat for Tehachapi monardella (Monardella linoides ssp. Oblonga). 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 orig...

Metagenomic detection and reconstruction of Lake Sinai Virus from honey bee sequence data

A survey of public honey bee sequence data was performed to detect infections by Lake Sinai Virus (LSV). The Sequence Read Archive of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) was queried to identify accessions of RNA sequence data derived from honey bee. These were filtered as described below and then up to 50 million reads or read pairs were downloaded and searched agains

Laboratory Incubation results from 2015 for bacterial cell counts, carbon use efficiency, growth efficiency, and dissolved organic matter chemistry from four glacier outflows and four rock glacier outflows in Colorado

Bacterial Data include results of incubations of lakewater bacteria with dissolved organic matter extracted from Colorado glacier or rock glacier outflows in 2015. Cells were counted pre- and post- incubations. The “Counts” tab is the number of cells counted in each view of the microscope using the acridine orange method. “C Calculations” tab is the calculation of

Potential productivity and change for tobosagrass in the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative area

This data set includes the relative production scenarios for tobosagrass [0.08(Temp) - 0.58]; this is the model from Epstein, et al. (1998). Soil texture (percent by weight) came from the Earth Systems Science Center (2008) which provided processed soils data from NRCS (gSSURGO), mean annual temperature (Celsius) and/or mean annual precipitation (millimeters%

Stable carbon isotope and wood component concentration data for riparian cottonwood tree rings, Little Missouri River, North Dakota

This dataset includes stable carbon isotope values, lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose concentrations (expressed as percent of ash-free dry mass) for riparian cottonwood (Populus deltoides) tree rings growing on the Little Missouri River floodplain, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota. Drought stress induces stomatal closure and the carbon isotope ratio of annual tr

Probable and potential suitable habitat for 43 rare plant species in the California desert

Multiple-use public lands are intended to meet the needs of current and future generations and require balancing a host of diverse resource uses and values within and across landscapes. In the California desert, there are significant interests in further developing renewable energy (solar, wind, geothermal) and important conservation concerns on multiple-use public lands.
