Prescribed Fire Permit Records for Georgia and Florida

We compiled and analyzed a database of burn permits for prescribed fires conducted in Florida and Georgia from 2006-2016. The dataset contains the number of permitted burns and expected acres burned by county in the two states for every day in the 11 year period. Also included are the county-wide average daily weather conditions for temperature and relative humidity, calculated from the...

Aboveground Biomass Data Collected in 2016-17 from Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia

Aboveground Biomass Data from Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia. Plot data includes X and Y location, downed dead wood (DDW) count, mangrove species identification, and site descriptions. Species information was recorded for Bruguiera gymnorhiza, Sonneratia alba, Xylocarpus granatum, Lumnitzera littorea, Rhizophora apiculata, Rhizophora lamarckii, Rhizophora mucronata, Rhizophora stylosa...

Water Quality Data Analyses in the Canadian River Basin, 1939-2013

Summary of statistics, regression analyses, LOADEST regressions, mean annual flow-weighted concentrations/values, and Kendal tau trend analyses of flow-weighted constituent concentrations of dissolved chloride, suspended sediment, dissolved oxygen, pH, and Temperature values of water samples collected intermittently at USGS streamgages on the Canadian River or its tributaries fr

Fish Data Collection on the Canadian River 1995-2015

The use of streamflow simulations from the Vflo model and subsequent calculation of streamflow metrics to investigate flow-ecology relationships may be hindered by our inability to accurately model flow variability and extreme flows of the arid Great Plains. The Canadian River and other rivers in the Great Plains tend to have highly variable flows and harsh environmental conditions. The...

Point locations of daily flow rates in the Canadian River watershed derived from hydrologic modeling 1994-2013

The development of a hydrologic foundation, essential for advancing our understanding of flow-ecology relationships, was accomplished using the high-resolution physics-based distributed rainfall-runoff model Vflo. We compared the accuracy and bias associated with flow metrics that were generated using Vflo at both a daily and monthly time step in the Canadian River basin, USA. First, we c

Geographic patterns and time trends in surface-water quality, modeled streamflow, fish population characteristics, and ecological flows in the Canadian River Basin from Northeast New Mexico to Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma

Geographic patterns and time trends of water-quality, modeled streamflow, and ecological data were compared along the Canadian River and selected tributaries in northeastern New Mexico to Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma to determine effects of climate change on water quality, streamflows, fish populations and ecological flows in this watershed from 1939 to 2013. Project participants included sta

West Portrillo Mountains Scaled Quail Brood Survival 2014-2015

Grassland birds are among the most imperiled bird guilds in North America. Scaled quail (Callipepla squamata) are a semi-arid grassland bird whose populations have declined over the past half century. We monitored scaled quail in New Mexico to study the effects of habitat, temperature and precipitation on survival of scaled quail adults, nests, and broods.

Impact of Drought on Southwestern Pronghorn Population Trends and Predicted Trajectories in the Southwest in the Face of Climate Change_Predictor

Climate often drives ungulate population dynamics, and as climates change, some areas may become unsuitable for species persistence. Unraveling the relationships between climate and population dynamics, and projecting them across time, advances ecological understanding that informs and steers sustainable conservation for species. Using pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) as an ecologica
