Water quality, atmospheric nitrogen deposition and herbaceous plant species richness in the USA, 1970-2011
This data release is comprised of a data set that contains specific conductance and chloride concentration data in HUC-8 watersheds that intersect with areas with unconventional oil and gas plays, and a data set that contains atmospheric nitrogen deposition rates and herbaceous plant species richness values across sample sites in the USA. Associated publication: Koenker, R., Chernozhukov, V., Xuming. and Peng, L., 2017, Handbook of quantile regression: Boca Raton, FL, CRC Press.
This data set contains atmospheric nitrogen deposition rates and herbaceous plant species richness values across sample sites in the USA, originally used for the publication by Simkin et al. (2016. Conditional vulnerability of plant diversity to atmospheric nitrogen deposition across the United States. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 113: 4086-4091. A portion of this data set was used for example quantile regression analyses in the book chapter Cade (2017. Quantile regression applications in ecology and the environmental sciences. R. Koenker, et al., eds. Handbooks of Modern Statistical Methods: Handbook of Quantile Regression. Chapman & Hall/CRC. The data set contains...
