Variables pertaining to establishment success of non-native fishes introduced to the Hawaiian Islands and Guam for use in risk analysis modeling

Data represent dependent and independent variables used in logistic modeling for a study entitled "Evaluating Establishment Success of Non-native Fishes Introduced to Inland Aquatic Habitats of Tropical Pacific Islands." The phases of invasion of nonnative species are transport, introduction, establishment, and spread. To understand likelihood of establishment of species moved to new reg

Xenopus metamorphosis after neonicotinoid exposure

Xenopus laevis tadpoles were held in 4 replicate vivaria for each of 4 treatments of neonicotinoid pesticides and one control treatment for at least one month (Control media, thiamethoxam high concentration of 100 ppm, thiamethoxam low concentrations of 20 ppm, clothianidin high concentrations of 100 ppm, and clothianidin low concentration of 20 ppm). Water was sampled for chemical testing on Day

Specimen observation data for Najas marina L. from 1863 to 2020

The North American distribution of Najas marina L. from 1863 to 2020 is presented in this dataset. Fields provided include georeferenced coordinates, dates of collections, collectors, and source herbaria. Data are housed in the U.S. Geological Survey's Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Database (

Discerning innate immunity in American kestrels, Falco sparverius, through 21 days post-hatch

Data consist of flow cytometry files that were generated in the analysis of white blood cells from kestrel blood. Thus, data are in standard format that allows files created by one type of acquisition hardware and software to be analyzed by any other type.

Sediment macrofaunal composition, sediment grain size, and taxa functional traits of multiple deep-sea coral habitats in the Gulf of Mexico, 2009-2014

Deep-sea corals can create a highly complex, three-dimensional structure that facilitates sediment accumulation and influences adjacent sediment environments through altered hydrodynamic regimes. Infaunal communities adjacent to different coral types, including reef-building scleractinian corals and individual colonies of octocorals, are known to differ from background non-coral soft-sediment comm

Gene expression and liver cell metabolism from Xenopus laevis tadpoles exposed to neonicotinoids

Data were collected from Xenopus laevis tadpoles exposed to clothianidin and thiamethoxam in two concentrations each, 100 ppm and 20 ppm. Gene expression was generated from brains and livers, and liver cells provided metabolic activity data.

Sightings data for a note on the "First Documentation of Long-Distance Travel by a Florida Manatee to the Mexican Caribbean"

West Indian manatees (Trichechus manatus) are separated into two allopatric subspecies: the Florida manatee (T. m. latirostris) and the Antillean manatee (T. m. manatus). In the winter of 2020-2021, an adult manatee was sighted off the coast of Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, in areas where Antillean manatees are not typically seen. The individual had distinct watercraft scars on its body, which wer

The Louisiana Amphibian Monitoring Program from 1997 to 2017: Data

Call observation data from the Louisiana Amphibian Monitoring Program (LAMP). Each route has 10 stops. The routes are in one of 3 Louisiana regions (north, south and Florida parishes). Routes are identified by number and name. Call observations are categorical number 0 (not heard) through 3 (full chorus with overlapping calls). Each route has 10 stops. A full description of data collection can be

Louisiana's Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) elevation data

Wetland restoration efforts conducted by the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in Louisiana rely on monitoring efforts to determine the efficacy of these efforts. The Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) was developed to assist in a multiple-reference approach that uses aspects of hydrogeomorphic functional assessments and probabilistic sampling for monitor

Field observation of current velocities (2018) in Gandy?s Beach, New Jersey with living shoreline structures

This dataset contains measured (interval=20 minutes) current velocity during February 1 to April 4, 2018 at seven locations along the Gandy's Beach, New Jersey in upper Delaware Bay. These data were used for the analysis of current pattern dynamics along the coast in upper Delaware Bay with oyster-reef based living shoreline structure for shoreline protection.

Molecular data to investigate phylogeographic patterns, species boundaries, and demographic history of a North American freshwater mussel species complex (Bivalvia: Unionidae)

Here we provide public access to three DNA sequence alignments (COI, ND1, ITS1) and details on all specimens utilized in Keogh et al. (in review).

Sediment grain size, geochemistry, and polychaete functional traits of Norfolk Canyon (western Atlantic) axis, hard substrate, and adjacent slope habitats, 2012-2013

Dataset of sediment geochemistry, water column parameters, and macrofaunal functional traits associated with sediment communities collected in Norfolk Canyon axis, hard substrates, and adjacent slope habitats in 2012 and 2013.
