Assessment of bird exposure to lead at Tyndall and Beale Air Force Bases

Soil contamination by lead (Pb) from past small munitions training on Beale Air Force Base, California and Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida may result in adverse effects for passerine birds that utilize the locations. A study was conducted during 2016–17 at both Air Force Bases (AFB) to assess the risk of bird exposure to Pb. Two different methods were used to estimate exposure....

Microclimate influences mangrove freeze damage: implications for range expansion in response to changing macroclimate

In this data release, we present data from three nights of chilling temperatures in 2015 (18th/19th January 2015; 18th/19th February 2015; 5th/6th March 2015) and from three nights of freezing temperatures in 2017/2018 (6th/7th January 2017; 1nd/2nd January 2018; 16th/17th January 2018). In the paper that accompanies this release, we synthesized hypotheses regarding the effects of...

Burmese python environmental DNA data, and associated attributes, collected from ARM Loxahatchee NWR and surrounding areas, from 2014-2016

Environmental DNA (eDNA) detection of invasive species can be used to delimit occupied ranges and estimate probabilities to inform management decisions. Environmental DNA is shed into the environment through skin cells and bodily fluids and can be detected in water samples collected from lakes, rivers, and swamps. In south Florida, invasive Burmese pythons occupy much of the Greater Everglades...
