Data collected in 2012 using Q-methodology to identify the importance of water-based ecosystem services derived from the Shoshone National Forest

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains the results of a 2012 study of the preferences of 96 stakeholders (e.g., farmers, ranchers, outfitters and guides, average citizens, natural resource managers and scientists, county commissioners) from Wyoming and Montana for 34 water-based ecosystem services.

Modeled historical streamflow metrics for the contiguous United States and National Forest Lands

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
Available water supply varies greatly across the United States depending on topography, climate, elevation and geology. Forested and mountainous locations, such as national forests, tend to receive more precipitation than adjacent non-forested or low-lying areas. However, contributions of national forest lands to regional streamflow volumes is largely unknown.

Flower phenology and climate data for Artemisia tridentata populations

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains 2012 flowering data for the 52 populations of big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) grown in 3 garden locations: Majors Flat and Ephraim in Idaho, as well as Orchard, Idaho. Data include geographical details, subspecies, julian date of flowering, and population climate variable information.

Growth and survival before and after a mountain pine beetle outbreak in a ponderosa pine genetic trial

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data package contains data used for the publication "An insect outbreak shifts the direction of selection from fast to slow growth rates in the long-lived conifer Pinus ponderosa" (de la Mata et al. 2017). The study includes measurements from 204 half-sibling families planted in a common garden experiment planted in 1974 and last measured in 2013.

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest daily average streamflow data: 1992-2001

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains daily average streamflow from October 1992 through September 2001 for 11 stream gauging stations located on the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF) which is located in the Little Belt Mountains of Central Montana, USA. Streamflow was measured at two locations on Tenderfoot Creek (Upper and Lower) as well as seven subwatersheds.

Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex (BMWC) 2004 visitor preference and usage data along with characteristics and attitudes towards Fire Management

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
Research at the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex (BMWC) in Montana explored differences in recreation visitors’ attitudes towards the use of management-ignited prescribed fires in the wilderness. This data publication contains the results of both on-site and mail-back surveys during the summer and fall of 2004.

Northern New Mexico post-fire refugia data

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This publication contains spatial data, tabular data and scripts used to analyze the spatial patterns of refugia and associated plant communities following each of several fires in northern New Mexico. Four of the geotiff files were derived during the project (*Kernel.tif) using dNBR (delta Normalized Burn Ratio) or dNDVI (delta Normalized Difference Vegetation Index).

Tree demography records and last recorded fire dates from the Pinaleño Demography Project, Arizona USA

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication includes tree measurements taken from 2008-2013 across a gradient of forest types in the Pinaleño Mountains in southeastern Arizona, USA. Tree data include: species, pith date, and last recorded fire date. These data were collected as part of the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) Growth and Demography of Pinaleño High Elevation Forests research project.

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains daily meteorological data collected at the Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations located on the Coram Experimental Forest (Flathead National Forest) in Montana. The Terrace Hills weather station was installed in May of 1996, and the Desert Ridge weather station was installed in May of 2001. Data are included up through 2015 for both stations.

Fire Lab tree list: A tree-level model of the western US circa 2009 v1

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
Maps of the number, size, and species of trees in forests across the western United States are desirable for many applications such as estimating terrestrial carbon resources, predicting tree mortality following wildfires, and for forest inventory.
