Northern Arizona, USA, post-wildfire avian data: western bluebird detection/non-detection and banding data

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Western bluebird (Sialia mexicana) population data were collected in northern Arizona, USA, following two wildfires (Hochderferr Fire, Horseshoe Fire) that occurred in May and June 1996. This is a data subset consisting of 8 years of bird data collection post-wildfire (1999-2006) and 3 years of vegetation data (2002, 2005, 2006), and is part of a larger long-term data set.

Species occurrence data from the aquatic eDNAtlas database

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The eDNA samples in the eDNAtlas database describe species occurrence locations and were collected by the U.S. Forest Service and numerous agencies that have partnered with the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) throughout the United States. This project began in 2015, but updates will include legacy data that were collected using the same protocol. The eDNAtlas database consists of three feature classes.

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
These data document annual detections of breeding birds in canyons throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. Data were collected during the breeding season from 2001 through 2015, inclusive, and in 2018 and 2019. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts.

Incidental and long-distance bird observations in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (3rd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
These data document detections of birds in canyons throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. A small number of detections were made in the valleys adjacent to these mountain ranges and in the Desatoya Range. Data were collected during the breeding season from 2002 through 2015, inclusive, and in 2018 and 2019.

Fire and tree mortality database (FTM)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The Fire and Tree Mortality (FTM) database includes standardized observations of fire injury and survival or mortality for 171,177 individual tree-level observations, representing 142 tree species across the United States. Of these, 7,191 trees have burned twice. These trees were burned in 420 prescribed fires and wildfires occurring in 35 years, from 1981 to 2016.
