Molecular Sexing of Birds Using Quantitative PCR (qPCR) of Sex-Linked Genes and Logistic Models

This dataset provides cycle threshold (Ct) values achieved during qPCR for 6 sex-linked genes, and two autosomal genes, for individuals from 60 species and across 13 orders of birds.

Brant (Branta bernicla) Genetic Data from North America, Europe, and Asia

This data package is comprised of one table with genetic data from Brant (Branta bernicla). Data include sampling location and allele sizes of 14 microsatellite loci.

Harlequin Duck Genetic Data, North America, Greenland, and Iceland, 1952-2001

This data package is comprised of three tables with data from wintering Harlequin Ducks (Histrionicus histrionicus) from Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Maine, Greenland, and Iceland. The first table contains available allele sizes for 7 microsatellite loci and mtDNA control region haplotypes. The second table contains the mtDNA control region sequences used to assign haplotypes. The third t

DNA Microsatellite and Sex Identification Marker Screening for Mexican Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis lucida)

Two tables of data are included in this data release. The first table provides screening results for 32 previously described and/or published microsatellites and 1 sexing marker, primer redesigns for use in Mexican Spotted Owls in this data release, and size of markers in Mexican Spotted Owls. The second table provides microsatellite and sexing marker results for 10 tissue and 98 feather samples f

Southern Beaufort Sea Polar Bear Diet and Gut Microbiota Data, 2015-2019

This dataset is one table with data collected and derived from polar bears sampled in Alaska's southern Beaufort Sea during 2015-2019. Data include demographic and morphometric information from each sampled polar bear, gut microbiome diversity indices derived from fecal DNA metabarcoding, and the proportion of prey species detected in individual bear diets derived from quantitative fatty acid anal

Gavia Species Identification and Diet Composition from Feces, Central North Slope, Alaska, 2012-2014

This data set is comprised of one table with sampling information and NCBI BioProject accession numbers for sequence information of this amplicon-based study targeting Loon (Gavia sp.) and fish species expected in lake systems of the North Slope of Alaska from fecal samples. Highly conserved primers which could differentiate species of interest were developed for five portions of gavia mtDNA genes

Detection of Multiple Fish Species Using Environmental DNA (eDNA), Alaska 2018

This release provides results of an environmental DNA (eDNA) study of fish identified in seven Alaskan lakes, three streams, and a positive control. Samples included replicates for multiple sampling dates and locations. The reference list and conserved primer sets to identify species present were developed using publicly available data ( Highly conserved prim

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) mtDNA and Microsatellite Genetic Data, Alaska, Canada and Russia, 1880-2012

This data set provides sample information, microsatellite genotype, and NCBI accession numbers for mitochondrial DNA sequences of peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) from North America and Russia.

Genetic Microsatellite Data from Sorex, Based on Holarctic Sampling

This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from 17 autosomal loci (Sug001, Sug002, Sug003, Sug006, Sug007, Sug008, Sug009, Sug010, Sug011, Sug012, Sug019, Sug021, Sug022, Sug023, Sug024, Sug029, Sug038) in shrews, Sorex spp.

Genetic data from Cooper's Hawks, North America

This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from six autosomal loci (AgCA222, Age7.1JT, BV13, BV20, NVH206, NVH195-2) in Cooper's Hawks. Samples originated from blood samples collected from live trapped birds.

Genomic Data from Ptarmigan and Grouse, Alaska

This data set provides sample data and NCBI accession information for genomic sequencing of ptarmigan and grouse from Alaska.

Blood Parasite Infection, Body Mass, and Survival Data from Emperor Geese (Anser canagicus), Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, Alaska, 2006-2016

This dataset provides two tables of blood parasite infection data collected from Emperor Geese (Anser canagicus) on Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, Alaska, 2006-2016. Three genera of blood parasites (Leucocytozoon, Haemoproteus, Plasmodium) were detected by molecular sequencing of a 479 bp fragment of the Cytochrome-b gene. The data provided in the tables are: 1) age, sex, mass, infection status, and NCBI
