Maps of the USGS Climate Adaptation Science Centers (May 2024)

The Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) partner with natural and cultural resource managers, tribes and indigenous communities, and university researchers to provide science that helps fish, wildlife, ecosystems, and the communities they support adapt to climate change. The CASCs provide managers and stakeholders with information and decision-making tools to respond to the effects of climat

Riverine carbon form and flow data from a temperate forested watershed in Southeast Alaska (2021)

Data from high frequency sampling of multiple carbon forms were collected in a predominately rain-fed watershed in Southeast Alaska during the main run-off season (May-October 2021). The dataset includes dissolved organic carbon, particulate organic carbon, coarse particulate organic carbon, and invertebrate biomass carbon point samples and daily stream flow. The objective of this study was to col

Global data on the relationship between urban biodiversity and ecosystem functioning between 2006 and 2023

This database contains documented observations of the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in urban areas globally published between 2006 and June 2023. We systematically reviewed publications from Web of Science. To be included, studies needed to explicitly assess how at least one metric of biodiversity related to at least one ecosystem function and must have been conducted

Model outputs highlighting how biodiversity loss reduces global terrestrial carbon storage based on climate and land-use changes projected for 2050

Carbon sequestration and biodiversity are tightly linked, but many models projecting carbon storage change do not account for the role biodiversity plays in the sequestration capacity of terrestrial ecosystems. Here, we link a macroecological model projecting changes in vascular plant richness with empirical biodiversity-biomass stock relationships, to assess the consequences of plant biodiversity

Dataset of Species Presence Locations for 116 Freshwater Fish Species in Wyoming, Montana, and the Surrounding States from 1800 – 2022

The University of Wyoming Stream Species Dataset is a species presence dataset containing presence locations for 116 freshwater fish species in Wyoming, Montana, and the surrounding states. It contains data from 40,490 unique sample events (location, month, year). Data was derived from multiple sources (Table 1) and limited to fish occurrences in rivers and streams.

Comprehensive Historic Biodiversity Inventory List of Boston Harbor, 1861-2020

This data set is an amalgamation of records of marine and coastal species occurrence in the Boston Harbor. Taxon include marine mammals, shorebirds, fish, marine invertebrates, and marine macro algae. The earliest record acquired was from 1861. Records span through 2020. We curated records from federal and state agencies, peer reviewed and gray literature, and scientific grade research observation

Data Release for Assessing the Impact of Changing Water Resources on Migratory Bird Health and Management in the Central Flyway of the United States

There is a growing movement within natural resource management to view wildlife health as a cumulative outcome of many different factors, rather than simply the absence of disease. This inclusive understanding of health opens the door to management options that are more creative than traditional techniques to prevent or mitigate pathogens. The public health field uses a determinants of health fram

Assessing factors related to Walleye stocking success in the midwestern United States - Associated Data

This data was used for the analysis in the paper "Assessing factors related to Walleye stocking success in the midwestern United States". This data includes stocking records of walleye from the Midwestern United States and subsequent evaluations of these stockings as provided by state agencies. Additionally, attributes of lakes such as size (depth, area), trophic state, and temperature are include

Linear Ditches of Northeastern U.S. Coastal Marshes from Maine to Virginia Derived from 2023 2D Aerial Imagery Basemap

Salt marshes of the Northeastern United States (Maine to Virginia) are vulnerable to loss given their history of intensive human alteration. One direct human modification – ditching – was common across the Northeast for salt hay farming since European Colonization and for mosquito control in the first half of the 20th century. We hand-digitized linear ditches across Northeastern intertidal emergen

The U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat): A Database and Interactive Tool for Inland Fisheries Management and Research

The U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat) contains data compiled from 14,729 creel and angler surveys conducted by state natural resource management agencies (including Washington DC and Puerto Rico) in inland waters across the United States. Data are contained in eight .csv files which contain information about survey characteristics (Survey_Data.csv), angler effort (AngEffort_Da

A Remote Sensing Approach to Characterize Winter Water Level Drawdown Patterns in Lakes

This data release consists of four datasets that were used for evaluating winter drawdown patterns in 166 Massachusetts lakes greater than 0.3 km2 surface area. The first dataset (“Water area and level.csv”) provides water area and water level time series data of 166 lakes from 2016 to 2021. Water area and water level time-series data were derived from European Space Agency’s Sentinel 1 synthetic
