This dataset includes the location and associated summarized temperature and soil moisture values associated with each seedling outplanted in this experiment. Temperature range (Temp.diff) is the average monthly temperature range for the life of the plant and/or experiment. Soil water content (Avg.wc) is the average soil water content for the life of the plant and/or experiment. Each plot and the associated elevation (Elev) are recorded. Each seedling has a unique identifier and all information associated used for data analysis. Survival of each seedling is noted with a 1 (survived) or 0 (died). An index of growth per day, 'slope' is provided for each seedling. Seedlings were planted across eight plots (Plot: A-H)...

This dataset was developed to model habitat suitability for two ungulate species on the island of Lanai. This includes raster data derived from WorldView-2 data to create a normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI). This index, in addition to other datasets, was used to develop habitat suitability models for Axis deer and mouflon sheep. Datasets and indices derived for use in modeling efforts, as well as suitability models, are included within this data release.
Montane plant communities throughout the world have responded to changes in precipitation and temperature regimes by shifting ranges upward in elevation. Continued warmer, drier climate conditions have been documented and are projected to increase in high-elevation areas in Hawai‘i, consistent with climate change effects reported in other environments throughout the world. Organisms that cannot disperse or adapt biologically to projected climate scenarios in situ may decrease in distributional range and abundance over time. Restoration efforts will need to accommodate future climate change and account for the interactive effects of existing invasive species to ensure long-term persistence. As part of a larger, ongoing...

This dataset was developed to model habitat suitability for two ungulate species on the island of Lanai. This includes raster data derived from WorldView-2 data to create a bare ground index. This index, in addition to other datasets, was used to create the habitat suitability models. Datasets and indices derived for use in modeling efforts, as well as suitability models, are included within this data release.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
