The Aquatic eDNAtlas Project: Lab Results Map - USFS RMRS

    The eDNA samples in the eDNAtlas database describe species occurrence locations and were collected by the U.S. Forest Service and numerous agencies that have partnered with the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) throughout the United States. The eDNAtlas is accessed via an interactive ArcGIS Online (AGOL) map that allows users to view and download sample site information and lab results of species occurrence for the U.S. The results are primarily based on samples analyzed at the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) and associated with geospatial attributes created by the Boise Spatial Streams Group (BSSG).

    The Range-Wide Bull Trout eDNA Project - USFS RMRS

      The bull trout (*Salvelinus confluentus*) eDNA survey results Online Map allows users to view the survey results in an interactive map by coupling 1) predictions from the range-wide, spatially precise Climate Shield model on the location of natal habitats of bull trout with 2) a sampling template for every 8-digit hydrologic unit in the historical range of bull trout, based on the probability of detecting bull trout presence using environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling. The map provides the ability to zoom in and look at an area of interest, as well as to create queries or select an area to download points as a shapefile.

      Invasive and Exotic Species of North America - Invasive.org

        [Invasive.org](https://www.invasive.org/) is a joint project between University of Georgia's Bugwood Network and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Over 8,300 images, including over 1,000 new images of invasive/exotic/noxious plant, insect, pathogen and other species (including many weeds) and their biological control agents, taken by over 250 photographers. Most images were digitized from high-resolution 35mm slides. Multiple levels of jpeg format images are downloadable and may be copied and used for any non-profit, educational purpose with appropriate credit and copyright notice. Although most images are North American in nature, the system also contains images of organisms that are "Non-U.S. Natives", or are considered to be "U.S. Invasives."

        Flat Mites of the World

          Flat Mites of the World provides a portal to a variety of keys, images, and fact sheets to help support identification of this diverse, potentially destructive group of mites.

          Data from: Defensive aphid symbiont Hamiltonella defensa effects on Aphelinus glycinis and Aphelinus atriplicis

            *Aphelinus glycinis* was collected in the Peoples Republic of China under a Memorandum of Understanding between their Ministry of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). *Aphelinus atriplicis* was collected by employees of the USDA, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), in the Republic of Georgia with the permission of that government. The parasitoids were imported into the USDA, ARS, Beneficial Insect Introductions Research Unit containment facility in Newark, Delaware, under permits from the USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (Permit Numbers P526P-08-02142 and P526P-09-01929). No specific permissions were required to collect *Aphis craccivora* or *Acyrthosiphon pisum* because these are cosmopolitan aphids that occur in the field throughout North America. None of the species collected or studied are endangered or protected.

            Data from: Population dynamics of an invasive forest insect and associated natural enemies in the aftermath of invasion

              Datasets archived here consist of all data analyzed in Duan et al. 2015 from Journal of Applied Ecology. Specifically, these data were collected from annual sampling of emerald ash borer (*Agrilus planipennis*) immature stages and associated parasitoids on infested ash trees (*Fraxinus*) in Southern Michigan, where three introduced biological control agents had been released between 2007 - 2010.
