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.

RxCADRE 2008, 2011, and 2012: Lidar data and derived raster products

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data package contains raw lidar data and derived raster products from the 2008, 2011, and 2012 Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE). Data include LAZ lidar files and derived rasters including terrain, canopy height, mean intensity surfaces, as well as percent canopy cover.

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.

Lubrecht State Experimental Forest Prescribed Fire Effects Study 1973-2006

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains pre and post fires stand and fuels data collected over a 33 year period. Rod Norum as part of his PhD dissertation work, began this study in 1973. He laid out 32 small (25 by 25 meter) plots in a Douglas fir/western larch stand on the University of Montana's Lubrecht Experimental Forest. Twenty of the plots were burned in separate prescribed fires in 1973.

Biomass, fuel load, and litter measurements before prescribed fire in the Shoshone mountains of Nevada

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains measurements of biomass and fuel load data for sampled trees as well as the litter and dead parts of the trees following spring prescribed fire in the Shoshone Mountain Range of central Nevada on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nye and Lander Counties.

Maximum temperatures, needle mat, and vegetation measurements in pinyon-juniper microsites following prescribed burn in the Shoshone mountains of Nevada

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Temperature sensitive devices were placed in particular microsites throughout plots located in the Shoshone Mountain Range of central Nevada on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nye and Lander Counties. The area was then burned and the devices were collected and transcribed into a dataset that also contains depth of needle mat and tree/shrub measurements.

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
These data document vegetation structure and composition of trees and shrubs 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.
