Here we present the map of potential suitable habitat for Creamy blazing star (Mentzelia tridentata). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be potentially suitable for the species and the average standardized habitat suitability score for each location.Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model inputs. However, maps of suitable habitat should be used at a resolution no smaller than 360 m (i.e., 36 pixels x 36 pixels), which corresponds with the resolution of the coarsest model input. These data are intended to be used only to target future plant surveys in areas where new occurrences are most likely to benefit future habitat...

We used 29 years of data on boreal chorus frogs at two sites to view life-history, estimate demographic parameters, assess weather-related covariates, and determine the magnitude of process variation in target parameters. Average estimates of survival probabilities were 0.51 (Standard error [SE]=0.04) and 0.43 (SE=0.04), and average estimates of recruitment probabilities were 0.64 (SE=0.07) and 0.44 (SE=0.04). Process variation accounted for greater than 76% of the total temporal variation in both parameters at one pond and in survival probability alone at the other.

This sampling frame is a set of grid-based finite-area frames spanning Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The grid for the United States is broken into individual grids for the continental United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Alaska is combined with Canada into a single grid. Each country/state/territory extent consists of four nested sampling grids at 50x50km, 10x10km, 5x5km, and 1x1km resolutions. The original 10x10km continental United States grid was developed by the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture for use in the interagency “Bat Grid” monitoring program in the Pacific Northwest and was expanded across Canada, the United States, and Mexico for the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat)....

This data release contains simulated orthophosphate concentrations (milligrams per liter) as a function of year, season, and flow for 53 monitoring stations in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. These data were generated for a study published in Science of the Total Environment. They were extracted from the Weighted Regressions in Time, Discharge and Season (WRTDS; Hirsch et al. 2010) models developed for each monitoring station using two functions in the EGRET R package: the flowDuration function and the plotConcTimeSmooth function. The flowDuration function in the EGRET package (Hirsch and DeCicco, 2015) was used to quantify the 5th and 95th percentile flows to represent low and high flows, respectively, for each season...

This dataset includes stable carbon isotope values, lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose concentrations (expressed as percent of ash-free dry mass) for riparian cottonwood (Populus deltoides) tree rings growing on the Little Missouri River floodplain, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota. Drought stress induces stomatal closure and the carbon isotope ratio of annual tree rings tends to be negatively correlated with water availability, especially in dry environments. However, lignin and hemicellulose can obscure annual trends in carbon isotope compositions as these wood components can differ in δ13C relative to pure cellulose. We measured δ13C of whole wood in annual tree rings from seven trees with oldest...

Habitat use, diet, prey availability and foraging ecology of the endangered Hawaiian hoary bat (Lasiurus cinereus semotus, Vespertilionidae), was examined in the east Maui region inclusive of the Waihou Mitigation Area, Pu‘u Makua Restoration Area and the wind power facility operated by Auwahi Wind Energy, LLC. Research funding was provided to conduct the bat ecology study by Auwahi Wind Energy, LLC, in order to fulfill requirements for mitigating bat fatalities under its approved incidental take permit. This study included the first genetic analysis of Hawaiian hoary bat guano items, and broadly confirms the major arthropod orders (Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, and Blattodea) found in previous microscopy-based...

Spreadsheet for identifying individual storms for the Stochastic Empirical Loading Dilution Model (SELDM) . The spreadsheet was used in conjunction with the SELDM simulations used in the publication: Stonewall, A.J., and Granato, G.E., 2019, Assessing potential effects of highway and urban runoff on receiving streams in total maximum daily load watersheds in Oregon using the Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2019-5053, 116 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20195053.

The Bushy Park Reservoir is a relatively shallow impoundment in a semi-tropical climate and is the principal water supply for the 400,000 people of the City of Charleston and the surrounding areas including the industries in the Bushy Park Industrial Complex. Although there is an adequate supply of freshwater in the reservoir, there are taste-and-odor water-quality concerns. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Charleston Water System, monitored the hydrology and water-quality conditions in the Bushy Park Reservoir immediately before, during, and after a unique shutdown period when the average daily 800-cubic-feet-per-second withdrawals by South Carolina Electric and Gas (SCE+G) Williams Station...

Concentration results and quality assurance for pharmaceutical, hormone, and per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) analyzed in landfill leachate and wastewater influent and effluent. Samples were collected between July and October 2016, using U.S. Geological Survey field methods. Water-quality samples for pharmaceutical and hormone compounds (reported in nanograms per liter; ng/L) were analyzed at the U.S. Geological Survey, National Water Quality Laboratory in Denver, Colorado. Samples for PFAS compounds (reported in ng/L) were analyzed at the Oregon State University Environmental and Molecular Toxicology Field Laboratory, College of Agricultural Sciences.

These data were compiled to investigate differentiation in physiological activity varies through time for different functional groups. These include the seasonal progress of 13 plant species representing perennial C3 shrub, C3 grass, C4 grass, and annual forb functional groups of the Colorado Plateau, USA. These data can be used to test for differences in carbon assimilation strategies (SeasonalEcophyAciData) and how photosynthetic rates related to climate (SeasonalEcophyMonthlyData). Data can be arranged at the seasonal, annual, species-, or functional group-levels to compare multi-level processes.

This release includes all data collected in support of a juvenile Chinook salmon exposure study designed to understand the retention of microplastic clothing fibers (hereon refered to as "microfibers") after feeding. To understand the potential impacts of microfiber ingestion to fish, we ran a feeding experiment with juvenile Chinook salmon to determine if ingested fibers are retained and/or digestion rates altered over a full, experimentally determined, 10 day digestion period. Data includes: fish weights, microfiber counts, and quality assurance (QA) data for the experiment. QA steps are detailed in the process section of the metadata.

Midcontinent sandhill cranes (Antigone canadensis) are the most abundant management population of cranes in the world and have a broad breeding range. Four breeding segments of midcontinent sandhill cranes have been designated based on spatial and temporal distributions throughout the year, including Western Alaska–Siberia (WA–S), Northern Canada–Nunavut (NC–N), West-central Canada–Interior Alaska (WC–A) and East-central Canada–Minnesota (EC–M). WA–S and NC–N cranes primarily are composed of the lesser sandhill crane (A. c. canadensis) subspecies that breeds in the arctic, whereas WC–A and EC–M cranes are composed primarily of greater sandhill cranes (A. c. tabida), birds which breeds in northern parts of temperate...

We examined species boundaries within an imperiled group of freshwater mussels in the genus Cyclonaias (Bivalvia: Unionidae) using morphometrics, molecular phylogenetics, and multispecies coalescent models to help guide pending conservation assessments and legislative decisions. Congruence across all lines of evidence indicated that current taxonomy overestimates diversity in the C. pustulosa species complex, while underestimating diversity in the C. nodulata species complex. Here we provide all molecular, morphological, and collection information collected and analyzed in our investigation.
