Climatic CPGs -- 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

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.

DNA yields and concentrations from buccal swab samples of Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers

The data were generated as part of a study to determine if buccal (oral) swabs could be used to obtain genetic material from Red-Cockaded Woodpecker chicks. Different swab types were investigated to determine if any specific type gave the highest DNA yields.

Riparian Final Vegclass. Olympic National Park NRCA Westside Rivers Riparian Vegetation Project (2016)

Beschta and Ripple (2012) assert that increased elk populations in the Olympic National Park due to extirpation of wolves in the 1920’s has led to a reduction in riparian vegetation. They hypothesize that a decrease in this vegetation has led to an increase in erosion and undercutting of large conifer trees along the river banks, causing woody debris in the river, which in turn im

Occurrence locations and trait data for freshwater fishes, amphibians, and reptiles native to the state of Oregon

These datasets include occurrence points and trait data for freshwater fishes, amphibians, and reptiles native to Oregon State. Occurrence data were extracted from the VertNet database and include points within Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, as well as points found within ecoregions that overlap with Oregon state (U.S. EPA Level III EcoRegions). Occurrence points include records fro
