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).

Spatial Modeling for Resources Framework (SMRF)

Spatial Modeling for Resources Framework (SMRF) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) in Boise, ID, and was designed to increase the flexibility of taking measured weather data and distributing the point measurements across a watershed.

Rocky Mountain Research Station Air, Water, & Aquatic Environments Program

The Air, Water, and Aquatic Environments (AWAE) research program is one of eight Science Program areas within the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS). Our science develops core knowledge, methods, and technologies that enable effective watershed management in forests and grasslands, sustain biodiversity, and maintain healthy watershed conditions.

Data from: Effects of conifer treatments on soil nutrient availability and plant composition in sagebrush steppe

Conifer control in sagebrush steppe of the western United States causes various levels of site disturbance influencing vegetation recovery and resource availability. The data set presented in this article include growing season availability of soil micronutrients and levels of total soil carbon, organic matter, and N spanning a six year period following western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis spp. occidentalis) reduction by mechanical cutting and prescribed fire of western juniper woodlands in southeast Oregon. These data can be useful to further evaluate the impacts of conifer woodland reduction to soil resources in sagebrush steppe plant communities.

Data from: Host specificity of Aphelinus species considered for introduction to control Diuraphis noxia

These data are results of laboratory experiments on host specificity of ten populations of seven species from two species complexes in the genus Aphelinus. Host specificity was not related to host plant species or the phylogenetic relatedness of the aphids or the parasitoids. From these results, we conclude that A. hordei is an excellent candidate for introduction into the USA to control D. noxia.

Data From: Weather, Snow, and Streamflow data from four western juniper-dominated Experimental Catchments in south western Idaho, USA.

Weather, snow, stream, topographic, and vegetation data are presented from the South Mountain Experimental Catchments from water years 2007-2013 (10-1-2007 to 9-30-2013). The data provide detailed information on the weather and hydrologic response for four highly instrumented catchments in the late stages of woodland encroachment.
