Green turtle genetics in the Gulf of Mexico, 2006-2019

Mitochondrial DNA markers have elucidated patterns of connectivity between green turtle nesting populations (rookeries) and juveniles foraging in neritic nursery habitats. However, missing rookery baseline data and haplotype sharing among populations have often impeded inferences, including ascertaining origins of Gulf of Mexico juveniles. We sequenced the mitochondrial control region and addition

KiteNest modeling scripts and output

KiteNest is a spatially explicit model of Everglades snail kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis plumbeus) relative nest site selection that quantifies the relationships between a range of environmental factors and nest site selection specific to the southern portion of the species' range. Using hydrologic conditions such as mean 2-week water depth and water depth change rate, days since the last fire, dist

Satellite tracking data for post-nesting green turtles from Northwest Florida (2002-2020)

This dataset includes processed satellite tracking data collected from green turtles between July 2002 and October 2020 in the Gulf of Mexico along the west coast of Florida from the Florida Keys to the Gulf Islands National Seashore. It contains model output including from the state-space model (SSM) described in Lamont et al. (2022) and centroids associated with the 50 percent and 95 percent ker

Sea level rise scenarios for the Cape Sable seaside sparrow

The endangered Cape Sable seaside sparrow (Ammospiza maritima mirabilis; CSSS) occurs in marl prairie habitat at the southern end of the Everglades, at the southernmost part of the Florida peninsula. The locations of three of its six subpopulations are proximate to the coast, putting them at risk for inundation caused by sea level rise (SLR). The spatially explicit predictive model EverSparrow pro

Coastal wetland elevation survey of Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Alabama, 2016–2018

This data release includes elevation data collected from 2016–2018 within coastal wetland habitats at Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Alabama, and at Ogburn Marsh within the reserve. A total of 771 points were surveyed for elevation via Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS.

Topo-bathymetric survey at Gandys Beach, New Jersey, 2018

This Data Release contains field topo-bathymetric survey data in a selected saltmarsh shoreline along Gandys Beach, New Jersey, where constructed oyster reefs (CORs, aka oyster castles) were installed to protect the shoreline and enhance habitat for oyster and other species.  Oyster castles were constructed as a part of a living shoreline project along Gandys Beach in 2016 in response to the damag

Isotope data from Shimada 2018 research expedition

Stable isotope data of fauna, particulate organic matter, and rocks collected during the 2018 research cruise aboard the NOAA Ship Bell M. Shimada that examined benthic communities off the western U.S. coast.

Fish, amphibian, and conductance data from Panacea Unit, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, FL, 2009-2016

These data are meant to support a publication "Disentangling direct and indirect effects of extreme events on coastal wetland communities" in the Journal of Animal Ecology. This dataset contains both amphibian and fish observations based on our use of plastic minnow traps. Additionally we present (specific) conductance values observed during our trapping periods.

Soil property and geochronology (137Cs and 210Pb) data (2014) in salt marsh soils of Jamaica Bay Estuary, New York City

This dataset contains soil property and geochronology (Cesium-137 and lead-210 dating) data from soil cores collected in August 2014 in salt marshes of Jamaica Bay Estuary, New York City.

Motility of sperm from adult largemouth bass pond exposure to 17 alpha-ethinylestradiol or estrone-atrazine mixture (2018)

Adult largemouth bass have been shown to be sensitive to induction of intersex in response to chronic estrogen exposures over a complete reproductive cycle. Late summer to fall is the period of early gonad recrudescence when spermatogenesis is beginning in preparation for the spawning season in the spring. Our objective was to assess in 2018 whether early gonad recrudescence was a period of sensit

Soil elevation change in mangrove forests and marshes of the Greater Everglades: a regional synthesis of surface elevation table-marker horizon (SET-MH) data

The surface elevation table (SET)-marker horizon (MH) approach (SET-MH, together) is a method for quantifying surface elevation change through measurements of surface and subsurface processes that control wetland soil elevation. This dataset combines SET-MH data from five different U.S. Geological Survey efforts to monitor surface elevation change in the coastal wetlands of the Greater Everglades

Abundance, density, habitat placement and behaviors of Eumunida picta in the western Atlantic off the southeastern U.S. coastline from 2000-2009

Data on the abundance, density, habitat placement and behaviors of Eumunida picta observed from analyzed videos recorded during submersible dives from 2000-2009 in the western Atlantic off the southern U.S. coastline.
