Data included are from a series of field sample collections from Lakes Michigan and Huron, and laboratory mesocosms targeting the round goby fish (Neogobius melanostomus). The round goby is a benthic fish that has heavily invaded four of the five Laurentian Great Lakes. Because it inhabits a variety of substrates, including coastal breakwaters, traditional methods (e.g., trawling, trapping) are inadequate to quantify overall population size. Environmental DNA (eDNA) may be a viable option for improving detection and quantification of the species. Field data include number of round goby caught and associated ambient conditions of the aquatic matrix (temperature, pH, turbidity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen). Mesocosm...

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Indiana. Fragmentation of park land by urban areas, such this highway, can create islands of natural ecosystems and can disrupt the natural movement of plants and animals. Page 16 (bottom left), U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1085.

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore (INDU) was created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)-National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Mapping Program (VMP). The INDU covers an area of approximately 37,050 ha (15,000 acres), and includes approximately 15 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is divided into seven units (East Unit, West Unit, Calumet Prairie, Heron Rookery, Hobart Prairie Grove, Hoosier Prairie, and Pinhook Bog). The map classification scheme used to create the vegetation data set is designed to represent local plant communities at the finest level possible using the National Vegetation Classification...

This data release contains soil and vegetation data collected along a post glacial chronosequence associated with populations of oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) at the Indiana Dunes National Park. The post glacial chronosequence includes sand dunes and moraines, representing a successional gradient from woodland transition, to oak savanna, woodland and forest, to oak hickory forests on the Lake Border Moraine. Soil samples were collected from August 24, 2017 to September 1, 2017; vegetation cover data (percent cover by species) were collected from 1/4-meter squared plots (0.5 by 0.5 m) where the soil samples were taken. DNA extracted from soil and rhizosphere samples were analyzed for bacterial communities...

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Indiana. The unique environment of the Indiana Dunes supports a large variety of animals, such as Canada geese. Page 19 (top), U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1085.

The dataset consists of abundance information of butterfly species (61 species) collected at 25 sites in northwest Indiana in 1998 and 1999. Each site was surveyed 21 times. Auxiliary data on environmental conditions were collected to allow us to relate habitat differences among sites to differences in abundance and composition of the butterfly community.

Wetlands are an important nesting site for birds. Circa 1990. Page 22 (top photo), U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1085.
The geodatabase contains 13 relate tables that together provide updated and synchronized classifications to an existing vegetation map layer for each of the nine park units in the Great Lakes Network (GLKN) of the National Park Service (NPS) Natural Resource Inventory and Monitoring Program. The classifications include 1) vegetation types at every hierarchical level in the 2015 version of the U.S. National Vegetation Classification (USNVC) and 2) map classes that represent vegetation and land cover in the vegetation map layers. Furthermore, the tables provide a crosswalk between the two classifications (vegetation and map). Each park unit in GLKN has received, at different times over several years, vegetation data...

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Indiana. The unique environment of the Indiana Dunes supports a large variety of vegetation, such as the prickly pear cactus. Page 18 (right), U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1085.

This soil and vegetation data were collected along a successional gradient at the Indiana Dunes National Park. Soil samples were processed for standard soil chemistry, texture, and nutrients. DNA extracted from soil samples were analyzed for bacterial communities using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing technique to understand the composition and distribution of these communities along the successional gradient. Soils samples were collected in 2015 and 2017. Vegetation data were collected only in 2017, as the vegetation was dormant in 2015. We collected the data to examine the relationships among soils, vegetation, and composition of the microbial communities along a dunal chronosequence. A dunal chronosequence is a series...
