Summary

These data describe coarse habitat use, activity information, and differences between used and available microhabitats and vegetation types to provide information about the behavior and habitat relationships of adult female giant gartersnakes (Thamnophis gigas) associated with a restored marsh in the Sacramento Valley of California. These data support the following publication: Brian J. Halstead, Patricia Valcarcel, Glenn D. Wylie, Peter S. Coates, Michael L. Casazza, and Daniel K. Rosenberg (2016) Active Season Microhabitat and Vegetation Selection by Giant Gartersnakes Associated with a Restored Marsh in California. Journal of Fish and Wildlife Management: December 2016, Vol. 7, No. 2, pp. 397-407. http://dx.doi.org/10.3996/042016-JFWM-029

Purpose

The purpose of these data are to compare the use of habitats by giant gartersnakes (Thamnophis gigas) at small spatial scales to those habitats available to be used. These data provide information on the relationship between giant gartersnakes and their habitat to better conserve this rare species.
