Bayou Bonfouca Marsh Creation (PO-104): 2016 and 2018 land-water classifications

The Louisiana State Legislature created the 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 arresting

Delta Management at Fort St. Philip (BS-11): 2021 land-water classification

The Louisiana State Legislature created the 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 arresting

Permethrin concentrations on sawgrass collected from National Key Deer Refuge in 2015

Sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) samples were collected from marshes on five different keys (Big Pine, Torch, Ramrod, Cudjoe, and Sugarloaf Keys) within National Key Deer Refuge in January and June of 2015 and analyzed for contamination by the mosquito control insecticide permethrin. Permethrin was detected on 17 of 57 samples collected in January while it was detected on 40 of 56 samples collected i

Data from an annual trapping effort of an urban aquatic turtle population in Lafayette, Louisiana from 2009-2021

This dataset includes results from an ongoing annual trapping effort targeting aquatic turtles at two urban ponds in Lafayette, Louisiana. This project began in 2009 and consists of five days of active and passive trapping each May. This project is ongoing with plans to continue in May of 2022.

Data from the development and evaluation of a CRISPR/Cas12a-based biosensor for the detection of DNA from Pseudogymnoascus destructans using samples collected from various species of bats across the United States, from 2018 to 2023

Reported here are the fluorescence data points recorded from CRISPR/Cas12a biosensor assays to detect the presence or absence of DNA from Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd), the causative fungal agent of white-nose syndrome in bats, from artificial controls, dermal swab, and guano samples. Ct values from qPCR experiments are also provided in a table. Furthermore, we also provide the GenBank accessi

Molecular data used to test species boundaries, characterize phylogeographic patterns of genetic diversity, and guide the Endangered Species Act listing decision for a North American freshwater mussel species complex

Here we provide the molecular datasets and metadata associated with specimens used in the investigation of species boundaries and phylogeographic structure of two freshwater mussels, one common (Pleurobema sintoxia) and one being considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act (Pleurobema rubrum).

Adult mosquito and butterfly exposure to permethrin and relative risk following ULV sprays

This dataset contains data of permethrin residues on adult mosquitoes and adult butterflies following their exposure to ultra-low volume (ULV) sprays containing permethrin. The dataset also contains toxicity information for permethrin; first for adult mosquitoes and adult butterflies following their exposure to the ULV sprays, and for adult mosquitoes exposed during toxicity tests to determine med

Stable isotope signatures from green turtles and hawksbills at Buck Island Reef National Monument, U.S. Virgin Islands from 2012-2019

We used stable isotope analysis of nitrogen and carbon turtle epidermal samples to describe the trophic niche of the sampled sea turtle population by portraying δC as a habitat structure variable against δN as a resource gradient axis. We examined isotopic data for hawksbills (n = 64) and green turtles (n = 241) hand-captured across an 8-year time frame (2011-2019) to assess interspecific competit

Estuarine vegetated wetland change scenarios for estuaries in the conterminous United States, 1996–2019

This data release contains land cover-derived statistics regarding estuarine vegetated wetland area change within estuary drainage areas along the conterminous U.S. This dataset includes net change in estuarine vegetated wetland area based on National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Coastal Change Assessment Program (C-CAP) 1996 and 2016 land cover data. Net change was assessed bet

Louisiana Outer Coast Restoration Project – 2022 habitat map, North Breton Island

This data release includes 2022 data for the Louisiana Outer Coast Restoration Project for North Breton Island. Specifically, this data release includes a detailed habitat map, general habitat map, georeferenced imagery, and a bare-earth digital elevation model (DEM) developed from light detection and ranging data. These habitat maps are developed using the methods and classification scheme from L

Oceanographic conditions at Richardson reef reveal new suitable habitat for cold-water corals

Cold-water corals create complex structures, but our incomplete knowledge of their niche space limits our ability to understand their distribution and therefore the impact of the ecosystem services they provide in the ocean. The Richardson reef complex consists of over 150 km of linear reef tracts within an area of 75 km2 between 700-900 m depth. This reef experiences rapid shifts in temperature,

Stable isotope data for sea turtles and prey items in St. Joseph Bay, FL (2011-2021) and comprehensive summary of sea turtle diet papers

1. This stable isotope dataset includes the carbon and nitrogen values for loggerhead, Kemp's ridley, green sea turtles and their prey items in St. Joseph Bay, FL sampled between 2011 and 2021. 2. This dataset was created from a collection of sea turtle diet papers to produce a comprehensive summary of sea turtle diet based on scientific publications for loggerhead, Kemp's ridley and green turtles
