NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Longleaf Pine Range

    Longleaf pine forests once encompassed more than 90 million acres of the North American landscape and represented some of the world’s most unique biologically diverse ecosystems. In 2010, approximately three percent, or 3.4 million acres, of longleaf pine forest remained. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

    NWRC Chemical Effects Database

      The NWRC Chemical Effects Database is a searchable database that contains bioassay records and data for chemicals analyzed and evaluated for repellency, toxicity, reproductive inhibition, and immobilization. Studies were conducted from 1943 to 1987 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC), its predecessors, and by the U.S. Geological Survey's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (PWRC) (formerly part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). The online database comprises published data only. The entire database, including unpublished data, is currently searchable by NWRC staff.

      Data from: USBombus, Contemporary Survey Data of North American Bumble Bees (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Bombus) Distributed in the United States

        US*Bombus* is a large dataset that represents the outcomes of the largest standardized survey of bee pollinators (*Hymenoptera*, *Apidae*, *Bombus*) on the planet. The motivation to collect live bumble bees across the US was to document the decline and conservation status of *Bombus affinis*, *B. occidentalis*, *B. pensylvanicus*, and *B. terricola*. This dataset documents a total of 17,796 adult occurrence records across 391 locations and 38 species of *Bombus*. The geospatial coverage of the dataset extends across 41 of the 50 US states and from 0 to 3500 m a.s.l. The temporal scale of the dataset represents systematic surveys that took place from 2007 to 2010. The dataset was developed using SQL server 2008 r2. For each specimen, the following information is generally provided: species name, sex, caste, temporal and geospatial details, Cartesian coordinates, data collector(s), and when available, host plants. This database has already proven useful for a variety of studies on bumble bee ecology and conservation. Considering the value of pollinators in agriculture and wild ecosystems, this large systematic collection of bumble bee occurrence records will likely prove useful in investigations into the effects of anthropogenic activities on pollinator community composition and conservation status.

        NUOnet (Nutrient Use and Outcome Network) database

          The Nutrient Uptake and Outcomes (NUOnet) database will be able to help establish baselines on nutrient use efficiencies; processes contributing to nutrient losses; and processes contributing to optimal crop yield, nutritional and organoleptic quality. This national database could be used to calculate many different environmental indicators from a comprehensive understanding of nutrient stocks and flows.
