Louisiana Barrier Island Comprehensive Monitoring Program – 2008-2016 habitat change, Late Lafourche Delta 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

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

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.

Everglades NP SET-MH Project Metadata (ver 2.0, July 2019)

Due to their position at the land-sea interface, coastal wetlands are sensitive to sea-level rise and many other aspects of global change. Small changes in coastal wetland surface elevation can lead to comparatively large changes in coastal wetland ecosystem structure and function, and in some cases wetland loss. The surface elevation table (SET)-marker horizon (MH) approach (SET-MH

Hemichromis collection data for genetic characterization in Florida

The African Jewelfish, Hemichromis letourneuxi, is an invasive, predatory cichlid fish introduced at least once to Florida. Its native range is in northeastern Africa. First encountered in Miami in the 1960s, it has since been found west and north within the state of Florida. It thrives in a wide range of aquatic habitats, including shallow, vegetated or rocky areas of canals, tidal

Fish data collected during 2015 and 2016 at 9 sites at the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Florida

Field sampling occurred at locations within Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge on three transects along the natural salinity gradient of increasing salinity to the coastal south. We used three replicates per tier (east-west) for a total of nine sampling sites. Sites were approximately 1300 m apart in all directions. Sampling events occurred every 3–4 weeks from January to M
