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: Data from camera surveys identifying co-occurrence and occupancy linkages between fishers (Pekania pennanti), rodent prey, mesocarnivores, and larger predators in mixed-conifer forests

      These data provide information on the frequency of fisher detections by camera traps, and single-season occupancy and local persistence of fishers in small patches of Sierra Nevada mixed-conifer forest habitats. The data are used to identify basic patterns of co-occurrence with fishers, and to evaluate the relative importance of presence of competing mesocarnivores, rodent prey, and predators for fisher occupancy of small, 1 km^2^ grid cells of forest habitat.
