Cocos Island, Guam Brown Treesnake Rapid Response Visual Survey and Capture Data, 10/2020 - 05/2023

These data were generated during a USGS Rapid Response for brown treesnakes (Boiga irregularis) on Cocos Island Guam (Islan Dåno’, Guåhan in CHamoru). They represent data collected during nocturnal visual surveys for brown treesnakes and data associated with captured snakes, effort during visual surveys as time and distance, as well as lizards, birds, and bats encountered during transect surveys.

Guam, USGS Closed Population (NWFN), an experimental eradication of brown treesnakes in a 5-ha study site, 2016 - 2023

These data represent a case study on managing the invasive brown treesnake (Boiga irregularis) on Guam within a 5 ha snake enclosure located on Northern Guam. The site code (NWFN or North West Field North) reflects a location on Andersen Air Force Base, Northern Guam, which has been a study site for close to two decades. The experimental process followed an adaptive resource management process to

Model subareas and moisture zones used in a sensitivity analysis of a water-budget model completed in 2022 for the islands of Oahu and Maui, Hawaii

A sensitivity analysis of groundwater-recharge estimates from a water-budget model was completed for the islands of Oahu and Maui, Hawaii (Johnson and others, 2023). Results of the sensitivity analysis were used to quantify the relative importance of selected model parameters to recharge estimates for three moisture zones (dry, mesic, and wet) on Oahu and Maui. These shapefiles contain the boundar

Seepage Runs of Hālawa Stream, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi: December 2021 - June 2022

This data release contains four seepage runs conducted along selected reaches of South Hālawa Stream, North Hālawa Stream, and Hālawa Stream, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi between December 2021 and June 2022. The data release has four child items that each consist of the following files: (1) a metadata xml file describing the child-item files and data attributes, (2) an annotated map showing the seepage-run meas

Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park plant cover, seedling, and plot description data, 2019

This data release includes data and metadata on plant and substrate cover, seedling counts, canopy cover, burn severity, and location information for plots that were established to monitor the efficacy of post-fire seed addition in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park on the Island of Hawaiʻi.

Hawai‘i Island ʻōpeʻapeʻa (Hawaiian hoary bat; Lasiurus semotus) mist netting effort, capture, and tag retention, 2018–2021

‘Ōpe‘ape‘a (Hawaiian hoary bats; Lasiurus semotus) were surveyed at 23 sites on Hawaiʻi Island from 33 to 2,341 m elevation from May 2018 to August 2021. Of the 23 sites, 8 were established as fixed survey sites for sampling at repeated intervals from January 2019 through January 2021. We surveyed each fixed site at least once per four-month period (January–April, May–August, September–December),

Hawaiʻi Island ʻōpeʻapeʻa (Hawaiian hoary bat) roost data, 2018–2021

Hawaiian hoary bats ('ōpe'ape'a; Lasiurus semotus) were captured and tracked back to roosting locations on Hawaiʻi Island from 2018-2021. We examined resource selection at multiple spatial scales - perch location within a roost tree, roost tree, and forest stand. We used a discrete choice modeling approach to investigate roost selection and describe attributes of day-roost trees including those us

Puuhonua o Honaunau and Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Parks, carbon dioxide treatment and qPCR eDNA assays for eradicating and monitoring invasive fish in anchialine pools, 2019-2022 (ver. 2.0, July 2023)

This data release includes metadata and tabular data that documents lab and field trials testing the efficacy of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas diffused into water to manage invasive fish in anchialine pools. The data release also includes information documenting sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) assays to detect environmental DNA (eDNA) from tilapia

Seepage-run discharge measurements, March 23, 2022, He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i

This data release contains a comma-delimited ascii file of 15 discrete discharge measurements made at sites along selected reaches of He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i, on March 23, 2022. These discrete discharge measurements form what is commonly referred to as a "seepage run." The intent of the seepage run is to quantify the spatial distribution of streamflow along the reach dur

Hawaiian forest bird avian malaria prevalence 2018-2021

Native and introduced forest birds were captured and then released across the Hawaiian Islands to acquire a blood sample for obtaining DNA and test for exposure to avian malaria (Plasmodium relictum). A total of 2,945 samples were collected and analyzed for avian malaria prevalence from 39 species captured at 66 sites from Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii islands.

Moloka'i, Hawai'i rapid assessment of hydrology, soils, and vegetation in coastal wetlands 2022

In this project, we assessed the potential for twelve coastal wetland sites on the island of Molokaʻi, Hawaiʻi, to provide socio-cultural resources and habitat for flora and fauna following restoration. In April 2022, a rapid field assessment of hydrology, soils, and vegetation was carried out at each of the wetland sites. The data provided here were collected in order to inform a prioritization p

Hawaiian Islands excess rainfall conditions under current (2002-2012) and future (2090-2099) climate scenarios

One of the determinants of runoff is the occurrence of excess rainfall events where rainfall rates exceed the infiltration capacity of soils. To help understand runoff risks, we calculated the probability of excess rainfall events across the Hawaiian landscape by comparing the probability distributions of projected rainfall frequency and land cover-specific infiltration capacity. We characterized
