Dendroctonus pseudotsugae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) sequential sampling data

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins, attacks Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco (Pinaceae), throughout western North America. Periodic outbreaks cause increased mortality of its host. Bark samples were obtained from 326 trees distributed over 21 stands during a 2-year period in the late winter to early spring of 1997 and 1998 in the Colorado Front Range.

Vegetation, soils, and landscape data for experimental rehabilitation of slash pile fire scars in conifer forests of the Front Range, Colorado

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Drastic changes in soil physical, chemical, and biotic properties following slash pile burning and their lasting effects on vegetation cover have been well documented in western North American ecosystems. However, processes that inhibit burn scar recovery are poorly understood as are the most effective means for their rehabilitation.

Forest-level appendices to the assessment of the influence of disturbance, management activities, and environmental factors on carbon stocks of U.S. National Forests

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This is a supplement for the General Technical Report RMRS-GTR-402 “Assessment of the influence of disturbance, management activities, and environmental factors on carbon stocks of U.S. National Forests" (Birdsey et al. 2019). Included are nine appendices that contain forest-level carbon information, model results, key figures, and interpretation for individual national forests across the nine National Forest System regions in the U.S.

Post-fire field observations across the 2007 Egley Fire in central Oregon (1st Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains field observations taken in 2008 at 350 plots within the extent of the 2007 Egley Fire in central Oregon. Plots were located as paired sites in areas that had been treated and untreated prior to the 2007 Egley Fire. Field observations include a suite of vegetation, soil, fuel, and surface cover characteristics.

Field attributes and satellite data for "How vegetation recovery and fuel conditions in past fires influences fuels and future fire management in five western U.S. ecosystems" (1st Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains field and satellite observations at 1567 plots across wildfire extents that burned between the years 2000-2007, collected for Joint Fire Science Project ID: 14-1-02-27. Field attributes were measured between the years 2013-2016 and include a suite of vegetation, soil, and surface cover characteristics.

An effective and efficient assessment process

Publications Posted on: March 30, 2018
Depending on the agency, discipline, or audience, assessments supply data and information to address relevant policy questions and to help make decisions. If properly executed, assessment processes can draw conclusions and make recommendations on how to manage natural resources. Assessments, especially large ones, can be easily influenced by internal and external forces.

Supporting data for "Morphologic plasticity and increasing competition explain deviation from the Metabolic Scaling Theory in semi-arid conifer forests, southwestern USA"

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication includes tree measurements taken 2008-2010 in three mixed conifer forests: the Pinaleño Mountains and Santa Catalina Mountains in southeastern Arizona, and the Jemez Mountains (Valles Caldera National Preserve) in northern New Mexico. Tree data measured at all locations include: species, condition, diameter at breast height and maximum vertical height.
