Comparing live capture methods for nutria (Myocastor coypus): single versus multicatch traps

Data from a nutria trap type comparison study. Single catch traps were compared to muliticatch traps at the same study sites at the same time. The study site was Sauvie Island, Oregon. The data include trap location, location ownership, location cover, and number and size of animals caught in the different trap types. Study was conducted March through April 2011.

Louisiana Barrier Island Comprehensive Monitoring Program – 2008 habitat map, Acadiana Bays Region

The Barrier Island Comprehensive Monitoring (BICM) program was developed by Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) and is implemented as a component of the System Wide Assessment and Monitoring Program (SWAMP). The program uses both historical data and contemporary data collections to assess and monitor changes in the aerial and subaqueous extent of is

Removing threats before they spread: Eradication of two non-native fishes in Miami, Florida (USA)

The proliferation of non-native fishes in Florida is a serious problem, and new species continue to be introduced to the State. Herein we report the eradication of two species of non-native fishes in Miami, Florida (Giant Cichlid Petenia splendida and Blue Mbuna Labeotropheus fuelleborni; both Family: Cichlidae). We removed these fishes before they were observed in the extensive,

East Sabine Lake Hydrologic Restoration (CS-32): 2015 land-water classification

The Louisiana State Legislature created Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in order to conserve, restore, create and enhance Louisiana's coastal wetlands. The wetland restoration plans developed pursuant to these acts specifically require an evaluation of the effectiveness of each coastal wetlands restoration project in achieving long-term solutions to

Plant community establishment in a coastal marsh restored using sediment additions, Barataria Basin, Louisiana

This data release consists of vegetation cover, soil surface elevation (also called vertical land motion of the wetland (VLMw)), and vertical accretion data collected over 23 months beginning in May 2001 in a restored brackish marsh in southeast Louisiana, USA. Vegetation cover was estimated in permanent plots, and soil cores were collected for determination of bulk density, org

Stable isotopic insights into Bathymodiolus childressi at two seeps in the U.S. Atlantic margin

Chemosynthetic environments support distinct benthic communities capable of utilizing reduced chemical compounds for nutrition. Hundreds of methane seeps have been documented along the U.S. Atlantic margin (USAM), and detailed investigations at a few seeps have revealed distinct environments containing mussels, microbial mats, authigenic carbonates, and soft sediments. The dominant mu

Bioblitzes facilitate non-native fish tracking and interagency partnerships data

Maintaining up-to-date information on non-native organisms’ distributions and species composition can be difficult, especially when species cross jurisdictional boundaries that require interagency coordination. Herein I report on the use of tools that have been used in Florida over the past seven years to assist with tracking of non-native fishes. Ten Fish Slams, where professional b

Trojan Y chromosome strategy for eradication of non-native species data

The Trojan Y Chromosome (TYC) strategy is a promising eradication method for biological control of non-native species. The strategy works by manipulating the sex ratio of a population through the introduction of supermales that guarantee male offspring.

Carbon budget assessment of tidal freshwater forested wetland and oligohaline marsh ecosystems along the Waccamaw and Savannah rivers, U.S.A. (2005-2016) (version 2.0, May 2019)

Data to support carbon (C) budget assessment of tidal freshwater forested wetland and oligohaline marsh ecosystems along the Waccamaw and Savannah rivers, U.S.A. This work represents the first estimates of C standing stocks, C mass balance, soil C burial, and lateral C export to aquatic environments in tidal freshwater forested wetlands undergoing transition to oligohaline marsh.
