Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
Comprised of 12 sites nationwide, the Fire and Fire Surrogates study (FFS) is a comprehensive interdisciplinary experiment designed to evaluate the economics and ecological consequences of alternative fuel reduction treatments in seasonally dry forests of the United States.

Expected change in suitable habitat for riparian species along the Rio Grande in New Mexico under changing climate

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt 3.3.3) methods were used to estimate expected change in suitable habitat for 12 different wildlife species under changing climate along the Rio Grande in New Mexico.

Santa Fe Watershed Fuels Reduction Project: Avian Point Counts

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Data were collected during a fuels reduction project conducted by the Santa Fe National Forest in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed from 2002 to 2007. Fuel reduction includes mechanical thinning, burning of piles and broadcast burning though only a small portion of the study area was burned during wildlife monitoring. In addition to areas thinned, we collected data in adjacent areas that were not actively managed.

Data product containing nest success and factors affecting nest survival for "Nest success of Black-backed Woodpeckers in forests with mountain pine beetle outbreaks in the Black Hills, South Dakota"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains nest success and measurements of other factors that might affect nest survival of Black-backed Woodpeckers (picoides articus) found in the Black Hills of South Dakota in mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) infested areas in 2004 and 2005.

Data product containing elk telemetry and vegetation characterization for "Habitat use by elk (Cervus elaphus) within structural stages of a managed forest of the northcentral United States"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains capture and telemetry measurements for elk (Cervus elaphus) in the Black Hills National Forest. Radio-collared elk were located 2-3 times per month and behavior observed. These data also include vegetation characterization at 412 locations where the precise location of elk were observed and 509 random locations.

Incidental and long-distance bird observations in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document observations of birds, mostly in canyons and a small proportion in intervening valleys, 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 from 2002 through 2012, inclusive.

Wildlife population and harvest data for Forest Service 2010 RPA assessment

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
The data documents trends in the populations and harvests of wildlife species across the United States, from 1955 to 2010, as one set of resource condition indicators as required by the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act (RPA) of 1974. Data from a variety of sources were used to document recent historical trends in big game, small game, migratory game birds, furbearers, nongame, and imperiled species.

Incidental and long-distance bird observations in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document observations of birds, mostly in canyons and a small proportion in intervening valleys, 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 observations were made in the valleys adjacent to these mountain ranges. Data were collected from 2002 through 2014, inclusive.

Vegetation structure and composition in the Shoshone Mountains and Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document vegetation structure (trees, shrubs, and ground cover), composition of trees and shrubs (in most cases, ground cover is differentiated by functional group but not by species), and presence or absence of cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) 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.
