Genetic data from Red-cockaded woodpeckers (Dryobates borealis) used to assess changes in population genetic differentiation and diversity over the past century throughout the southeastern United States.

These data include nuclear microsatellite data and mitochondrial DNA sequences (mtDNA) for specimens of Red-cockaded woodpeckers collected from three time points: 1881-1969 (mtDNA only), 1992-1994, and 2010-2014. Additional information regarding individual identifiers, population assignment, regional assignment, and eco-regional assignment are included as are longitude/latit

Total Mercury Concentrations in Dragonfly Larvae from U.S. National Parks (ver. 3.0, February 2020)

Comma-separated values (.csv) file containing data related to mercury concentrations in dragonfly samples from U.S. National Parks collected as part of the Dragonfly Mercury Project (DMP)

Probability of Streamflow Permanence (PROSPER) Continuous Parameter Grids (CPGs)

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed the PRObability of Streamflow PERmanence (PROSPER) model, a GIS raster-based empirical model that provides streamflow permanence probabilities (probabilistic predictions) of a stream channel having year-round flow for any unregulated and minimally-impaired stream channel in the Pacific Northwest region, U.S. The model provides annual

Forest management and cervid herbivory data from Western Oregon, USA, 2012

Land management practices often directly alter vegetation structure and composition, but the degree to which ecological processes such as herbivory interact with management to influence biodiversity is less well understood. We hypothesized that intensive forest management and large herbivores have compounding effects on early-seral plant communities and plantation establishment (i.e., tree

Habitat use, diet, movement, and vegetation use by western gray squirrels (Sciurus griseus) in the North Cascades Range, USA, 2008-2011

Data are contained in a comma-separated spreadsheet files (.csv) that describe vegetation characteristics of high- and low-use areas, nest tree sites, and individual nest trees used by western gray squirrels in the North Cascades as determined through live-trapping and radiotelemetry at two study sites: Stehekin, and the southern Methow Valley (Squaw Creek drainage), Washington.

Western US 30m Heatload Values

Heat load, a unitless value from 0 (low incident radiation) to around 1 (high incident radiation), is calculated using aspect, slope, and latitude (McCune and Dylan 2002 ). For the purposes of the exploration tool, the data are binned into 6 classes using Geometric Interval. Classes range from very low to very high and are designed to allow the classification of a polygon i

Columbia Spotted Frog (Rana luteiventris) Breeding at Grazing Exclosures in Eastern Oregon 2002-2010 and 2013

We studied the short-term effects of full and partial livestock grazing exclosures on Columbia Spotted Frog (CSF; Rana luteiventris) populations using a controlled manipulative field experiment with pre- and post-treatment data. This dataset includes vegetation data collected 2002-2010 and 2013 at 94 lakes and ponds in and around the Blue Mountains in eastern Oregon. Data collection followe...

Fuels Database for Intact and Invaded Big Sagebrush Ecological Sites

The Fuels Guide and Database for Big Sagebrush Ecological Sites was developed as part of the Joint Fire Sciences Program project “Quantifying and predicting fuels and the effects of reduction treatments along successional and invasion gradients in sagebrush habitats” (Shinneman et al. 2015). The research was carried out by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Forest and Rang

Telemetry and habitat data for Oregon spotted frogs (Rana pretiosa) in Oregon, USA

We used radio-telemetry to study late-season movement and habitat use by the Oregon spotted frog (Rana pretiosa) at 9 sites from 4 populations along the Cascade Mountains in Oregon. This dataset includes individual frog morphometrics, location data, and habitat use during each tracking event that occurred roughly weekly between September and January of 2011, 2012, and 2016.
