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.

Data supporting publication of fortifying the forest: thinning and burning increase resistance to a bark beetle outbreak and promote forest resilience

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
This package contains data used for the publication "Fortifying the forest: thinning and burning increase resistance to a bark beetle outbreak and promote forest resilience" (Hood et al. 2016). This study includes measurements from 1996-2012 at the Lubrecht Fire-Fire Surrogate Study Site, which was established in 2000 and includes four treatments, an untreated control, prescribed burn, a thinning, and a thinning followed by prescribed burn.

Data for National Fire and Fire Surrogate study: environmental effects of alternative fuel reduction treatments

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.

Presence and absence of butterflies in the Shoshone Mountains and Toiyabe and Toquima ranges, Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document annual observed presences and absences of resident butterflies in canyons throughout three mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander and Nye counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, and Toquima Range. Data were collected from 1995 through 2003, 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.

Presence and absence of butterflies in the Shoshone Mountains and Toiyabe and Toquima ranges, Nevada (3rd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document observed presence of butterflies in canyons throughout three mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander and Nye counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, and Toquima Range. Data were collected from 1995 through 2005, inclusive, and in 2013 and 2014.

Predicting concentrations of at-risk species nationally

Projects Posted on: May 28, 2015
In the last decade there has been growing use of ecosystem services to economically justify biodiversity conservation programs that ultimately contribute to human well-being. The short term costs of biodiversity degradation remain overshadowed by the short term economic benefits of resource extraction and land use intensification to support growing human populations. Spatially explicit models of at-risk species occurrence are needed to anticipate where imperilment issues are likely to emerge in the future under alternative climate and land use scenarios. 

Presence and absence of butterflies in the Shoshone Mountains and Toiyabe and Toquima ranges, Nevada (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
These data document observed presence of butterflies in canyons throughout three mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander and Nye counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, and Toquima Range. Data were collected from 1995 through 2005, inclusive. Records for each year reflect multiple visits (generally 5 or 6) at about 10-14 day intervals from late May or early June through late August or early September.

Biodiversity and management of the madrean archipelago: the sky islands of southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. 1994 Sept. 19-23; Tucson, AZ.

Publications Posted on: May 08, 2009
This conference brought together scientists and managers from government, universities, and private organizations to examine the biological diversity and management challenges of the unique "sky island" ecosystems of the mountains of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.

Wildlife and invertebrate response to fuel reduction treatments in dry coniferous forests of the Western United States: a synthesis

Publications Posted on: September 07, 2006
This paper synthesizes available information on the effects of hazardous fuel reduction treatments on terrestrial wildlife and invertebrates in dry coniferous forest types in the West. We focused on thinning and/or prescribed fire studies in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and dry-type Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), and mixed coniferous forests.
