Hawaii Waterfalls Linked to the National Hydrography Datasets

Hawaii Waterfalls Linked to the National Hydrography Datasets

Waterfall locations and estimated waterfall heights on five of the main Hawaiian Islands linked the NHD. Knowing waterfall locations and characteristics can aide in understanding species distributions and migration patterns across stream networks.

Refining the coarse filter approach: Using habitat-based species models to identify rarity and vulnerabilities in the protection of U.S. biodiversity

Preserving biodiversity and its many components is a priority of conservation science and how to efficiently allocate resources to preserve healthy populations of as many species, habitats, and ecosystems as possible. We used the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Gap Analysis Project (GAP) species models released in 2018, which identify...
