Digital surface, terrain, and canopy height models for Priest River Experimental Forest in 2002

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
The data publication contains 1 meter raster data sets for three different digital elevation models (DEM) for the Priest River Experimental Forest in north Idaho in 2002. The first is a digital terrain model (DTM), which is the ground surface with all vegetation and human-made structures removed. The second is a digital surface model (DSM), which includes all vegetation and human-made structures.

RxCADRE 2008, 2011, and 2012: Clip plot locations

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains both the pre- and post-burn clip plot locations for the 2008, 2011, and 2012 Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) fuels and ground cover fraction data (both of which are available in a separate data publication).

RxCADRE 2008, 2011, and 2012: Ground cover fractions

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This comma-delimited ASCII file contains estimated ground cover fractions at the post-fire clip plot locations at the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) units burned in 2008, 2011, and 2012. These plots are located at the Eglin Air Force Base, northeast of Valparaiso, Florida in Okaloosa County and the Joseph Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, near Camila, Georgia.

John Muir Wilderness and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks Wilderness: 1990 visitor survey data

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
A long-term problem that confronted wilderness managers in the early 1990s, and continues today, is the displeasure hikers express about meeting recreational livestock (primarily horses and mules) and seeing impacts of stock use. This data set contains the responses from a visitor survey of 891 participants who spent time in Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks Wilderness or John Muir Wilderness during 1990.

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.

Streamflow data for the Priest River Experimental Forest

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Streamflow data have been collected at the Priest River Experimental Forest (PREF) since 1939. A number of different devices have been used over the years to record these data, ranging from mechanical strip charts to electronic water level sensors connected to electronic data loggers.

Qualitative and quantitative 2004-2005 data on Yakutat residents, local relationships to the Situk River, and management implications

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This study examines relationships to place between residents of Yakutat, Alaska and the Situk River. It documents an assessment of local perspectives on use, conflict, and management issues on the river. Initial semi-structured, in-depth interviews were conducted with targeted community members in 2004 to gain an understanding of local perspectives.

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.

Detections of breeding birds in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (3rd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
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 2014, inclusive. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts.
