Temporal correlations in population trends: Conservation implications from time-series analysis of diverse animal taxa

Publications Posted on: November 18, 2016
Population trends play a large role in species risk assessments and conservation planning, and species are often considered threatened if their recent rate of decline meets certain thresholds, regardless how large the population is. But how reliable an indicator of extinction risk is a single estimate of population trend?

Faunal characteristics of the Southern Rocky Mountains of New Mexico: implications for biodiversity analysis and assessment

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
To define the faunal context within which local and regional resource management decisions are made, conservation of biological diversity requires an understanding of regional species occurrence patterns. Our study focused on the Southern Rocky Mountains of New Mexico and included the San Juan, the Sangre de Cristo, and the Jemez Mountains.

Data product containing nest site selection and survival data for "Nesting ecology of greater sage-grouse Centrocercus urophasianus at the eastern edge of their historic distribution"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
The greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) in North Dakota is listed as a Priority Level 1 Species of Special Concern by the the North Dakota Game and Fish Department due to the declining populations between 1965 and 2003. This data publication contains nest site selection and nest survival data for the greater sage-grouse in North Dakota between 2005 and 2006.

Detections of breeding birds in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada

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 from 2001 through 2009, inclusive. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts. Each point was visited three times per season.

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 from 2001 through 2012, inclusive. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts. In most cases, each point was visited three times per season.

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.

Capture history and handling times for "Netguns: a technique for capturing Black-backed Woodpeckers"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication includes capture history and handling times for Black-backed Woodpeckers (Picoides articus) between September 2008 and June 2011 in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Study sites chosen were forests impacted recently by fire or mountian pine beetle infestations. Seventy-five Black-backed Woodpeckers were captured using Coda or carbon dioxide powered netguns, and 26 of those birds were recaptured.
