    Abstract:
    These data document vegetation structure and composition in canyons throughout three mountain ranges in the western Great Basin (Mineral, Douglas, and Lyon Counties, Nevada and Mono County, California): the Wassuk Range, Sweetwater Mountains, and east slope of the Sierra Nevada. Vegetation data were collected in 2012, 2013, and 2014 at 158 locations where breeding birds were surveyed annually from 2012 through 2014 or 2015. Data include but are not limited to estimates of cover of trees (live and dead, differentiated by species), shrubs (differentiated by species), native herbaceous plants (generally not differentiated by species), and cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum); and sizes or size classes of trees (live and dead). With the exception of cheatgrass, which was measured each year at most locations, vegetation at each location was measured once, in either 2012 or 2013.
