Vegetation and breeding birds were sampled in Upper Mississippi River floodplain forest edge and interior areas to (1) measure Phalaris cover and (2) evaluate if the breeding bird assemblage responded to differences in Phalaris cover or other forest structure variables. Data are counts of birds collected during 3 surveys within 50m at each site using 10 minute point count methods. Vegetation was sampled using a releve technique at the bird count point within 10m of the point.

Net sedimentation rates were obtained for backwaters of the Upper Mississippi River in Pools 4, 8, and 13 by measuring annual bed elevation changes along transects between 1997 and 2001. Average sedimentation rates (cmּyr�1) during the 5-yr period were lower than most previously reported rates in backwaters of the River, with means of –0.08 (standard error [SE] = 0.18) in Pool 4, 0.21 (SE = 0.10) in Pool 8, and 0.47 (SE = 0.26) in Pool 13.�Poolwide estimated mean sedimentation rates in the terrestrial areas adjacent to backwaters appeared higher, ranging from 0.32 (SE = 0.14) to 0.78 (SE = 0.25) cmּyr�1, but were not significantly different than rates in aquatic areas.�When averaged over the study period, sedimentation...
We applied Zequanox using a custom-engineered, boat mounted application system to replicated 0.30 Hectare plots within a small inland lake. The objectives of these applications were to determine if uncontained, open-water Zequanox applications could effectively control zebra mussel populations and protect native unionid mussel populations within zebra mussel infested systems. The datasets included are as follows: Exposure Water Chemistry Hardness and Alkalinity Native Mussel Sonde Water Chemistry Zebra Mussel Density Zebra Mussel Length Zebra Mussel Mortality Zequanox Concentration ShapeFiles: PLOTS, UNIONID, ZEQUANOX CONCENTRATION, ZM_DENSITY, ZM_MORTALITY

The Long Term Resource Monitoring (LTRM) program employs a destructive harvest method for sampling aquatic vegetation whereby a rake is dragged ~1.5 m over the substrate and plant materials are retrieved. The density of each species of submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV), and of all species combined, are scored based on the amount of plant material collected on the teeth of each rake. Plant density (PD) scores are ordered and vary from 0 (no plants captured) to 5 (80-100% of rake teeth covered). The PD score of 1 has represented the vast majority of all non-zero values since 1998 and is associated with a wide range of biomass (e.g. <1g to 694g fresh weight in Pools 4 and 8 during the 2017 field season). However,...
This code may be used to fit linear models with multivariate random effects and heterogeneous measurement-level residual variances. The code as written may be used to estimate associations between water temperature ('temp') and continuous year ('yearctr'), study reach (or field station; 'fs'), log-transformed mean July water discharge (in 1000 cms units; 'logmeanJulycms1000'), number of days from a central sampling date (for a given year, days from a standard month and day; 'jdatectr'), time of sampling (in fractions of hours from noon on the given date; 'timectrhr') and interactions thereof. Water, discharge and air data may be obtained from https://www.umesc.usgs.gov/data_library/water_quality/water1_query.shtml,...
The code files were used to analyze data used with the publication, "Probabilities of detecting submersed aquatic vegetation species using a rake method may vary with biomass," by Brian Gray. The study explored whether probabilities of species detections for four submerged aquatic vegetation species varied among sampling units in a rake-biomass study and, if so, whether such variation reflected variation in species abundance. Variation in detection probabilities, when unaddressed, yielded biased estimators of percent frequency of occurrence and of occurrence-habitat associations. The study found substantial among-unit variation in detection probabilities, and that majorities of that variation on the logit or modeling...
This code may be used to estimate the effects of study treatments on mortality among Sagittaria plants raised from small tubers, and growth among Sagittaria plants raised from seeds and small and large tubers. Input data and information about those data may be obtained at https://doi.org/10.5066/F7Q52NW4.

Detailed point center quarter sampling (Mueller-Dombois and Ellenberg 1974) was conducted during late June along a 150-m long transect that started at a bird survey point. Four plots were sampled corresponding to the start, 50m, 100m and end points of each transect. At each of these four sample plots, species, diameter at breast height (dbh) and distance from the center of the plot were recorded tor trees (>8cm dbh) and saplings (≤8cm dbh). Number of standing snags (>8cm dbh and over 2 m tall) within 25m of the plot center were counted. Total basal area of each plot was estimated using a size 10 angle gauge and averaged over the four plots in each transect. As well, height of a representative canopy tree and understory...

Satellite transmitters (Model PTT-100, Microwave Telemetry, Inc) were implanted in 31 adult male (marked during July 2010 and July 2011) and 27 juvenile (marked during August 2014 and August 2015) common loons that were captured on breeding lakes in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The satellite transmitters were programmed to transmit on a variable schedule based on the anticipated stage of migration during the loon’s annual cycle. We utilized the most accurate locations per 8-hour transmission period to describe the daily winter location of each adult loon. Spot measurements of water
