    USDA Plants Database API in R

      The USDA maintains a database of plant information - [USDA Plants Database](http://plants.usda.gov/java/) - containing trait data, some of its life history. This resource is an independently created RESTful API for that data. The API, and open issues for bugs/feature requests can be found in the GitHub repository. This tool can be used from the command line, R, Ruby, Python, a browser, etc.

      LANDFIRE

        LANDFIRE (LF), Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools, is a shared program between the wildland fire management programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior, providing landscape scale geo-spatial products to support cross-boundary planning, management, and operations. LANDFIRE is a program that provides over 20 national geo-spatial layers (e.g. vegetation, fuel, disturbance, etc.), databases, and ecological models that are available to the public for the US and insular areas.

        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.
