Nafus, M.G., 2020, Data associated with toxicant applications for brown treesnake control: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This file describes three datasets used to evaluate individual traits in brown treesnakes and how they affect susceptibility to toxicant applications. This file references three data sets that include 'Guam GROUND', SURVTOX', and 'HMU NWFN TRT.' Guam GROUND reference to snakes encountered during visual surveys on Guam and whether they were located on the ground or arboreal. SURVTOX refers to a known fate study of telemetered snakes that either survived or died during an application of toxic baits. HMU NWFN TRT refers to the demography of snakes captured pre and post-toxicant treatment.

The data were collected in association with monitoring brown treesnake populations on Guam. They can be used to evaluate metrics related to brown treesnakes on Guam, especially in association with toxicant applications. The data were collected for a variety of reasons necessary for monitoring and understanding brown treesnake populations on Guam. They were opportunistically synthesized and analyzed to support the paper listed in the abstract.
