Please see details in the cited publication. In addition to the presence absence data, there are also photos of each subplot from 2005 onward. Nelis, L.C. and J.T. Wootton, Treatment-based Markov chain models clarify mechanisms of invasion in an invaded grassland community. Proceedings of the Royal Society Biological Sciences Series...MORE
This website and database hosts records of fossil pollen, charcoal, and mammal assemblages, as well as plant macrofossils, largely from North America, but also globally, throughout the Pleiocene-Quaternary (and Anthropocene). Also included are chronological controls that allow the use of the records through time from the last 5 million years...MORE
The USGS Gap Analysis Program (GAP) is delineating species range and predicted distribution maps for more than 2,000 species that occur within the continental US as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (we will make these maps and datasets available as they are completed). Our...MORE
The USGS Gap Analysis Program (GAP) PAD-US is the national inventory of U.S. terrestrial and marine protected areas that are dedicated to the preservation of biological diversity and to other natural, recreation and cultural uses, managed for these purposes through legal or other effective means. Lands in PAD-US are mainly...MORE
The USGS Gap Analysis Program (GAP) Land Cover Data Set includes detailed vegetation and land use patterns for the continental United States. The data set incorporates the Ecological System classification system developed by NatureServe to represent natural and semi-natural land cover. The 590 land use classes in the data set...MORE
Assessing the direct and indirect consequences of nonrandom species removal within guilds of strongly interacting species, such as large mammalian herbivores, is an important goal in basic and applied ecology. The ecological impacts of such perturbations are often contingent on abiotic conditions, which have hindered efforts to generalize the results...MORE
