Summary

These data include metadata and associated data files associated with the manuscript, "Economical Environmental Sampler Designs for Detecting Airborne Spread of Fungi Responsible for Rapid ʽŌhiʽa Death." These data include a total of 8 datasets used for both controlled and field studies evaluating the use of Active (with battery operated fan) and Passive (dependent on wind) USGS Environmental Samplers on Hawaii Island between 2016-2018. Samplers were operated under controlled laboratory and field conditions with a commercial sampler (Rotorod® Model 20) to compare efficacy in capturing synthetic polyethylene spheres (12 - 160 µm in diameter) and also Xyleborus spp. boring dust (frass) known to contain the fungi responsible for Rapid [...]

Purpose

These data were collected to determine efficacy of two new environmental samplers for detecting airborne spread of the fungi responsible for Rapid ʽŌhiʽa Death. The new designs are more cost effective than commercial devices that have been used in the agricultural and health sciences industry. Their low costs makes it feasible to deploy large numbers of samplers across large landscapes for monitoring spread of the disease.
