These raster data represent the results of a case study in Arizona on how vertebrate richness metrics can be used with existing state and federal guidance in wind and solar energy facility siting. Each of the four geodatabases (see Cross References) contain eight native terrestrial wildlife group models in Arizona: 1) all vertebrates, 2) amphibians, 3) reptiles, 4) birds, 5) mammals, 6) bats, 7) raptors and 8) long-distant migratory birds. An XML workbook is included that lists all terrestrial native vertebrate species in Arizona which cross-walks these species to the name of the National Gap Analysis Project species distribution model.
Aeroecology focuses "on the planetary boundary layer, or aerosphere, and the myriad of organisms that, in large part, depend upon this environment for their existence" (Kunz et al. 2008). The primary mission of the Aeroecology Community is to act as a clearing house for remotely sensed data related to biological use of the aerosphere. This community aims to provide biological data collected from weather radar, portable radar, thermal imaging, and other applicable and emerging technologies.

This data release contains the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) Master Sampling Grid at the 5 km x 5 km scale with biologically relevant covariates for NABat analyses attributed to each cell of the 5 km x 5 km grid frame for the continental United States. It was created using ArcPro and the 'sf', 'tidyverse', 'dplyr' and 'exactextractr' packages in R to extract covariates from multiple data sources following the 10 km x 10 km attributed grid process as well as adding additional covariates. These covariates include the habitat characteristics such as percent of wetlands, forest, deciduous and coniferous forest, dominant and subdominant oak types, the number of tree and oak species, topographic features...

This data release contains the environmental geospatial raster data sets used to estimate summer roosting habitat for 4 species considered under the United States Forest Service proposed Bat Conservation Strategy (Myotis lucifugus, MYLU; Myotis septentrionalis, MYSE; Myotis sodalis, MYSO; and Perimyotis subflavus, PESU). This suite of environmental data was hypothesized to influence summer roost habitat suitability and were produced at a spatial resolution of 250 m per pixel.
Our model is a full-annual-cycle population model {hostetler2015full} that tracks groups of bat surviving through four seasons: breeding season/summer, fall migration, non-breeding/winter, and spring migration. Our state variables are groups of bats that use a specific maternity colony/breeding site and hibernaculum/non-breeding site. Bats are also accounted for by life stages (juveniles/first-year breeders versus adults) and seasonal habitats (breeding versus non-breeding) during each year, This leads to four states variable (here depicted in vector notation): the population of juveniles during the non-breeding season, the population of adults during the non-breeding season, the population of juveniles during the...

Hawaiian hoary bats ('ōpe'ape'a; Lasiurus semotus) were captured and tracked back to roosting locations on Hawaiʻi Island from 2018-2021. We examined resource selection at multiple spatial scales - perch location within a roost tree, roost tree, and forest stand. We used a discrete choice modeling approach to investigate roost selection and describe attributes of day-roost trees including those used as maternity roosts. ‘Ōpe‘ape‘a were found roosting in a variety of tree species and in an assortment of habitat types including native and non-native habitats. This data release consists of six tabular datasets: (1) Hawaiʻi Island ʻōpeʻapeʻa roost perch metrics, 2019–2021, (2) Hawai‘i Island ʻōpeʻapeʻa roost tree metrics,...

These bat location estimates have been reported by Bogan and others (In press) and come in the form of a GIS shape file. Three species of nectar-feeding phyllostomid bats migrate north from Mexico into deserts of the United States (U.S.) each spring and summer to feed on blooms of columnar cacti and century plants (Agave spp). However, the habitat needs of these important desert pollinators are poorly understood. We followed the nighttime movements of two species of long-nosed bats (Leptonycteris yerbabuenae and L. nivalis) in an area of late-summer sympatry at the northern edges of their migratory ranges. We radiotracked bats in extreme southwestern New Mexico during 22 nights over two summers and acquired location...

The dataset is comprised of historical observations and predictions of winter colony counts at known sites for three bat species (little brown bat, Myotis lucifugus; tricolored bat, Perimyotis subflavus; and big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus). The dataset consists of two separate but related data files in tabular format (comma-separated values [.csv]). Each data set consists of predicted winter counts derived using winter status and trends modeling methods developed by the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat). These two predicted winter count data sets were used to inform NABat summertime status and trends analysis: 1) modeled abundance predictions for all hibernacula for all three species from 2010-2021,...

Hawaiian hoary bats ('ōpe'ape'a; Lasiurus semotus) were surveyed at 23 sites on Hawaiʻi Island from 33 to 2,341 m elevation from May 2018 to August 2021. Of the 23 sites, 8 were established as fixed survey sites for sampling at repeated intervals from January 2019 through January 2021. We surveyed each fixed site at least once per four month period (January–April, May–August, September–December), with a survey comprising one to three netting events. Additional opportunistic surveys were conducted at alternate locations or on alternate dates. We captured 138 unique bats (37 female, 101 male) and recaptured 10 bats over 224 mist-netting events. This data file includes data pertaining to mist netting effort locations,...

These data contain the results from the North American Bat Monitoring Program's (NABat) species distribution model (SDM) for the northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis). The provided tabular data includes predictions (with upper and lower confidence intervals) for northern long-eared bat occupancy probabilities (which represent the probability of presence) based on data from the entire summer season (May 1-August 31), averaged from 2017-2022, in each NABat grid cell (5km x 5km scale) across the range of the species. Specifically, predictions represent occupancy probabilities in the pre-volancy season in the summer (May 1–July 15), i.e., the period of time before juveniles can fly and become detectable by...
