The Dam Removal Information Portal (DRIP) is an online representation and visualization tool for the USGS Dam Removal Science Database, inspired by Bellmore et al. 2015 and now developed as a live data system in ScienceBase as part of the Biogeographic Information System. DRIP provides a map-based visualization of information of dam removals and associated scientific studies. The database was developed in cooperation with the NGO, American Rivers, who also provides data on other dam...

Data release for "A 130,000-year-old archaeological site in southern California, U.S.A", published as a Letter to Nature. Includes sample information, U-Th isotope compositions, calculated U-series (230Th/U) ages and initial 234U/238U activity ratios, for mastodon bones from the Cerutti Mastodon site in National City, CA. Formatted data tables can be found in the Supplementary Information associated with that article (doi:
This ScienceBase Item provides documentation and access to a dynamic query of the Spatial Feature Registry for dam removals that have been associated with a literature source describing the dam removal project and associated scientific studies. The Spatial Feature Registry is a dynamic collection in ScienceBase of geospatial features of importance as long-term, persistently identified items. Dam removal items in the Spatial Feature Registry provide part of the foundation for the National Dam Removal Science...
Seroprevalence of West Nile virus in feral horses on Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, Nevada, United States 2004-2006, 2008 and 2009J Christian Franson, Erik K Hofmeister, Gail H Collins & Robert J Dusek
We screened 1,397 feral horses ( Equus caballus ) on Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, Nevada, United States, for IgM and IgG against flavivirus during 2004 2006, 2008, and 2009. Positive serum samples were tested for neutralizing antibodies to West Nile virus (WNV) and St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV). One animal was positive for antibody against WNV in 2004, but all others tested in 2004 2006 were negative. In 2008 and 2009, we found evidence of...
