Summary

Data on the occurrence of plague epizootics in colonies of black-tailed prairie dogs, Pawnee National Grassland, Colorado 1982-2005. Data are derived from annual prairie dog surveys conducted by staff of the Pawnee National Grassland, U.S. Forest Service. The data includes information on the year of sampling, colony identification, UTM coordinates of colony centroids, weather (precipitation and temperature), colony area, soil moisture-holding capacity, connectivity among colonies, and the occurrence of plague epizootics. Data provided by M.F. Antolin and L.T. Savage, Colorado State University, supported by the National Science Foundation (DEB-9616044, DEB-0217631, DEB-0823405, EF-0327052), the U.S. Forest Service, Pawnee National Grassland, [...]

Purpose

The data were collected to evaluate factors that affect the occurrence of plague epizootics in colonies of black-tailed prairie dogs in Pawnee National Grassland, Colorado. The data might be used to investigate factors that affect plague cycles in black-tailed prairie dogs, or to predict future dynamics of the disease in black-tailed prairie dogs.
