Hawaii Island airborne detection of fungal pathogens of Ohia, 2016-2017

January 26, 2022

This data release includes metadata and tabular datasets that document (1) Austropuccina, Ceratocystis and Myrtaceae qPCR (quantitative polymerase chain reaction) DNA detections in Passive Environmental Samplers (PES), (2) wind speed, wind gust speed, and wind direction measurements collected at two sites in the Kahuku Unit of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (HAVO) where paired PES were located, (3) localities, sites and elevations where PES were located, and (4) Genbank accession numbers for Austropuccinia and Ceratocystis DNA sequences amplified from samples collected in a subset of PES. These raw data were analyzed and reported in the manuscript "Environmental Monitoring for Invasive Fungal Pathogens of ??hi?a (Metrosideros polymorpha) on the Island of Hawai?i".
