Concerns about the influence of climate change on biota have emerged over the past decade, and responses in species populations and distribution patterns have already been documented (Parmesan 1996, Thomas and Lennon 1999). Current climates and communities will not simply migrate, but rather will re-form in novel ways over time (Fox 2007; Hunter et al. 1988; Williams and Jackson 2007). Due to the uncertainty of future climatic patterns and species responses, enduring features of the landscape (geophysical settings) are appropriate targets of assessment, planning, and conservation (Anderson and Ferree 2010, Beier and Brost 2010, Brost and Beier 2012; Hunter et al. 1988). Only recently have enduring features been...

This dataset was clipped to the WLCI study area by USGS staff. This metadata references the polygonal ARC/INFO GIS cover showing the current and historic distribution of potential habitat, or range, of the Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and Gunnison Sage-grouse (Centrocercus minimus) in Western North America. This data was initially researched and compiled by Dr. Michael A. Schroeder, research biologist for the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. The initial draft of current and historic range data was mapped and submitted to state, federal, or provincial natural resource agencies and other experts for review, comment, and editing. The final product represents the best available science...

This dataset represents the 2006 parturition areas for pronghorn in Wyoming as mapped by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Delineated parturition areas indicate areas with seasonally high concentrations of birthing animals. Boundaries are based on systematic and opportunistic long-term observation data. Depending on location and habitat conditions, birthing often occurs over dispersed areas. Such areas are not mapped as parturition areas.

This dataset contains the predicted distributions of 445 terrestrial vertebrate species in Wyoming, created in a GIS modeling process using species habitat association rules in combination with species geographic range. Because of the large size of this dataset, it is distributed in two ways (complete, statewide), and tiled into 56 1:100,000-scale quadrangles units which are small enough to be utilized in the PC Arc/Info or ArcView environment.

This individual species distribution is derived from a GIS modeling process using species habitat association rules in combination with species geographic range. There are a total of 445 individual terrestrial vertebrate species distributions generated for Wyoming by the Wyoming Gap Analysis project.

http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/wyndd/ The Wyoming Natural Diversity Database (WYNDD) is a service and research unit of the University of Wyoming that maintains a comprehensive database on the distribution and ecology of rare plants, rare animals, and important plant communities in Wyoming. WYNDD distributes this information upon request under the philosophy that the best decisions regarding natural resources will be made only when everyone has access to complete and current scientific data.

Access to Wyoming's Wildlife is a guide to the wildlife habitat management areas and public access areas throughout the state. The guide will tell you what facilities are available at each location, including facilities for the physically challenged, what kinds of fish and wildlife might be found, and what types of recreational activities are permissible.

Abstract (from http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcb.12642/abstract): Predicting biodiversity responses to climate change remains a difficult challenge, especially in climatically complex regions where precipitation is a limiting factor. Though statistical climatic envelope models are frequently used to project future scenarios for species distributions under climate change, these models are rarely tested using empirical data. We used long-term data on bird distributions and abundance covering five states in the western US and in the Canadian province of British Columbia to test the capacity of statistical models to predict temporal changes in bird populations over a 32-year period. Using boosted regression...
The NBII operates the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) clearinghouse for biological and ecological metadata. The Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory manages the NBII Metadata Clearinghouse. Users can access the Clearinghouse through this link to search for metadata for datasets, geospatial data layers, projects, reports, and other products that have been described using FGDC Metadata and the Biological Data Profile.

Anthropogenic climate change is likely to alter the patterns of moisture availability globally. The consequences of these changes on species distributions and ecosystem function are largely unknown, but possibly predictable based on key ecophysiological differences among currently coexisting species. In this study, we examined the environmental and biological controls on transpiration from a piñon–juniper (Pinus edulis–Juniperus osteosperma) woodland in southern Utah, USA. The potential for climate-change-associated shifts in moisture inputs could play a critical role in influencing the relative vulnerabilities of piñons and junipers to drought and affecting management decisions regarding the persistence of this...

These data are intended for use in a variety of applications where fish distribution and activity is important. Note that the StreamNet database contains distribution information for numerous species. Within the source database, overlap does not exist for a particular species/run/subrun combination. See information under the spatial process log for specific information regarding the query that was used to construct this particular feature class.
