Data describe results of a set of laboratory experiments using a previously described quantitative thiaminase I activity assay to test the thiaminase activity of whole zebrafish homogenates. Parameters described include the thiaminase activity data, dilution factors, incubation time, and tissue weight assayed. Experiments were conducted at the USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center, Columbia, MO in 2006.
Survival of grass carp and black carp gavaged with an oral dose of antimycin A in two carriers, corn oil and ethanol
The data consists of survival, length and weight of grass carp and black carp gavaged with an oral dose of antimycin A in two carriers, corn oil and ethanol.
This collection of metadata is harvested from the CSAS Metadata Clearinghouse, which serves as an aggregator for metadata from across many USGS science centers.
Data describe specificity and sensitivity testing for the L.sil2 assay. This assay is used to amplify eDNA from the freshwater mussel Lampsilis siliquoidea.
Simulated impacts of feather oiling on avian energetics and migration: R environment model code and raw output
This dataset represents a modeling effort intended to explore the impacts of oiling on migratory birds. The purpose of this model is to provide a first principles approach to predict potential biological impacts of altered energetics dynamics in north American migratory birds due to oiling of feathers. This data includes predicted theoretical impacts on migration timing, wintering latitude, starvation rates, and increased food uptake. This data was generated through model implementation in R (R Core Team 2020; Version 4.0.4).
Mission The mission of the River Studies Branch is to develop interdisciplinary science to inform river management and restoration. The River Studies Branch carries out basic and applied research in support of ecosystem-level management and restoration of large rivers, streams, flood-plain wetlands, and aquatic resources by providing scientific understanding of riverine ecology, habitat dynamics, and effects of human-induced disturbances. Problems Addressed Most rivers in the world have been substantially altered from their natural state by multiple stressors including dams, water use, channelization, land use changes, and chemical pollution. Society has recognized that these alterations have resulted in diminished...
Collection of data associated with particular programs administered at CERC
Morphometric measurements from unionid Pondmussel (Ligumia subrostrata) and concentrations of four per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in water and mussels collected from a 14-day accumulation and 7-day elimination study
Dataset consists of morphometric measurements from unionid Pondmussel (Ligumia subrostrata) and concentrations of four per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in water and freshwater mussels collected from a 14-day accumulation and 7-day elimination study. The accumulation of four per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were measured. Samples (4 replicates) were collected at 0, 4, 12, 48, 96, 168, and 336 hours during the uptake phase of the exposure. Samples (4 replicates) were collected at time point 348, 360, 408, and 504 hours during the elimination phase of the exposure. Note the time points are sequential with the uptake portion of the study followed by the elimination portion of the study.
These data represent the measurements of length and mouth gape from large juvenile and adult wild-caught and small juvenile hatchery origin black carp, and the results of laboratory size preference trials with bivalve prey, specifically Corbicula clams. Wild-caught black carp ranged from 429-1580 mm total length, a larger range than measured in previous studies. Corbicula feeding trial data consist of the shell dimensions of each clam, survival, and the frequency which clams were engulfed by black carp.
