This map shows the potential current distribution of white-tailed prairie dog, in the context of current and near-term terrestrial intactness and long-term potential for climate change and energy development.
Abstract: As the climate changes, human land use may impede species from tracking areas with suitable climates. Maintaining connectivity between areas of different temperatures could allow organisms to move along temperature gradients and allow species to continue to occupy the same temperature space as the climate warms. We used a coarse-filter approach to identify broad corridors for movement between areas where human influence is low while simultaneously routing the corridors along present-day spatial gradients of temperature. We modified a cost–distance algorithm to model these corridors and tested the model with data on current land-use and climate patterns in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The...

Cross section of basaltic next exposed by erosion in Grant Ridges, 6 miles northeast of Grant, view looking southwest in sec. 3, T. 11 S., R. 9 W. Basalt in core is jointed in vertical columns and surrounded by a thin zone of platy jointing developed along the contact with white tuff. Bedded breccia overlies the tuff, and basaltic lava overlies the breccia on the far side of the cone. The tuff, chiefly rhyolitic, was erupted from Mount Taylor. Valencia County, New Mexico. 1931. Plate 11-A, U.S.Geological Survey Professional paper 189-B. 1938. Album: Hunt #62, Valencia County, New Mexcio, 1931. T. 11 S., R. 9 W, Sec. 3 View NW. at natural cross-section of a cinder cone 6 miles northeast of Grant. Columnar jointed...

To evaluate the potential effects of climate change on wildlife habitat and ecological integrity in the northeastern United States from 2010 to 2080, a University of Massachusetts Amherst team derived a set of climate projections at a fine spatial resolution for the entire Northeast. The projections are based upon publicly available climate models.This dataset represents the growing season degree days (number of days in which the average temperature is > 10 degrees C) using one of two IPCC greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP8.5). The dataset is intended to represent typical growing season degree days for the year 2060 rather than the actual growing season degree days. MAP UNITS ARE THE SUM OF DEGREES THAT...

Synopsis: This study evaluates whether previous observations of a higher percentage of parasitism and parasitoid diversity in a complex agricultural landscape, relative to a simple landscape, represent a general phenomenon. Rates of parasitism and parasitoid diversity of the armyworm (Pseudaletia unipuncta) were assessed in three replicate (Onondaga, Ingham, and Benton) regions in southern Michigan. Within each region, a simple landscape (primarily cropland) and a complex landscape (cropland intermixed with mid and late successional noncrop habitats) were identified through analysis of aerial photographs. In each landscape, three maize fields were selected, and second to fourth instar P. unipuncta were released...

Partnership - Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership The Harpeth River drains nearly 900 square miles in middle Tennessee and flows through one of the fastest growing regions in the country. It is a state designated Scenic River in Davidson County, within 30 minutes of downtown Nashville. The river is one of the most archeologically and historically significant rivers in the state. However, the project area was listed on the U.S. EPA Section 303(d) list for siltation and habitat alteration, nutrient enrichment and low dissolved oxygen. Low dissolved oxygen was particularly an issue above a 6.2 foot low head dam near Franklin, Tennessee. Dissolved oxygen measurements at this dam were below state standards, and...

The SRLCC provided funds to the states in Arizona and New Mexico to support development of the states’ Crucial Habitat Assessment Tools (CHATs) which provide a decision support system to better incorporate wildlife values, sensitive animals and plants, and important ecosystem features into land use decision-making to reduce conflicts and surprises. Several states have released wildlife mapping tools that are the foundation for displaying crucial wildlife and corridor information. The state and regional CHATs are non-regulatory, and give project planners and the general public access to credible scientific data on a broad scale for use in project analysis, siting and planning. This includes large-scale development...

This map shows areas of high current, near-term, and long-term potential landscape development, based on factors such as urban areas, agriculture, roads, and energy development.
The Colorado River Cutthroat Trout (CRCT) conservation team identified a need to further develop a long-term approach to updating and maintaining the CRCT GIS-based database that was created using the Inland Cutthroat Trout Protocol (ICP). The University of Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center was contracted to develop a multi-state, web-based database and a web-based application for viewing and editing the data to aid in conservation activities. Previously, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming all used separate, “desktop” databases that could not be shared with partnering agencies nor updated for all users simultaneously. The database and application is for CRCT as well as other cutthroat species (Greenback cutthroat...
