Deer-mediated ecosystem service vs. disservice depends on forest management intensity - Dataset

Thomas D. Stokely
This dataset consists of planted crop-tree growth metrics (Pseudotsuga menziesii), non-crop tree vegetation metrics, and foraging data for black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) and Roosevelt elk (Cervus canadensis rooseveli) collected from the Intensive Forest Management experiment, Oregon Coast Range, USA, 2011-2016. The objective of the experiment was to quantify the effects of silvicultural herbicide treatments on biodiversity and ecosystem functions.

Data from: Methodology for comparing wood adhesive bond load transfer using digital volume correlation

Daniel J. Ching, Paige E. McKinley, Frederick A. Kamke, Michaela Zauner & Xianghui Xiao
There is a lack of fundamental knowledge about the role which adhesive flow and infiltration plays in the micro-mechanical performance of wood adhesive bonds. This data set, for the first time, provides a way to study directly the relationship between adhesive flow and the micro-mechanics of wood adhesive bonds. Specimens of three species: loblolly pine (*Pinus taeda*), Douglas-fir (*Pseudotsuga menziesii*), and hybrid poplar (*Populus deltoides x Populus trichocarpa*); and bondlines of three types: earlywood-earlywood, earlywood-latewood,...

Dataset for predicting the geographic origin of Spanish Cedar (Cedrela odorata L.) based on DNA variation

Kristen N. Finch
The legality of wood products in trade often depends on their geographic origin, creating a need for forensic tools that can verify claims of provenance for wood and wood products. Cedrela odorata L. or Spanish cedar is a target of illegal logging. We developed a 140 SNP Agena™ MassARRAY® assay for geographic assignment of C. odorata specimens to their origin. Hybridization capture, target enrichment, and short-read sequencing of 192 Cedrela specimens allowed us to identify...

Mattias Johansson, Marisa N.C. Litz, Richard D. Brodeur, Tristan A. Britt, Camilo A. Vanegas, John R. Hyde & Michael A. Banks
Cytochrome B sequence data (FASTA format) from the paper “Seasonal distribution and environmental associations among late larval and juvenile rockfish (Sebastes spp.) off Oregon and Washington: new insights based on genetics”. The data was generated from a sample of 2534 unknown, field collected late-larval and juvenile rockfishes from the Pacific Ocean off Oregon and Washington. These unknowns identified by comparison with a data set of sequences generated from known (morphologically identified) adult fishes. This project...

These species are also found widely throughout the Pacific Northwest. The dataset contains more than 6600 data points on 187 species. Three types of plant trait data are included in the dataset: quantitative, categorical,...

Carbonate measurements from Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery in Netarts Bay, OR from 2014-2019

William Fairchild
High-resolution measurements of salinity, temperature, and partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) taken at Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery, Netarts Bay, Oregon, from 2014 - 2019 are provided in this data set. Briefly, a permanently submerged pipe draws in bay water to supply the shellfish hatchery tanks. Unmodified water is branched into an adjacent laboratory where determination of salinity and temperature are measured using a SeaBird Electronics 45 MicroTSG (SBE45) at a rate of approximately 1...

Land-use in the Willamette Valley from 2004-2017

Bogdan Strimbu, George Mueller-Warrant & Kristin Trippe
The Willamette Valley, bounded on the west by the Coast Range and on the east by the Cascade Mountains, is the largest river valley completely confined to Oregon. The fertile valley soils combined with a temperate, marine climate create ideal agronomic conditions for seed production. Historically, seed cropping systems in the Willamette Valley have focused on the production of grass and forage seeds. In addition to growing over two-thirds of the nation’s cool-season grass seed,...

Land Cover Classification (5-meter) - Kings River Fisher Project 2014 - 2018

Eric L. McGregor, Kathryn L. Purcell, Rebecca E. Green, Sean M. Matthews, David S. Green & Jody M. Tucker
These high resolution (5x5-meter pixel) categorical models of land cover were created by training random forest classification models on RapidEye (Planet Labs Inc.) satellite spectral data for each year and then predicting those models across the landscape. Training data were created by visually interpreting random plots over high resolution NAIP aerial imagery. Land cover classes include bare ground, live forest, shrub, herbaceous, and tree mortality. Class definitions generally follow California Wildlife Habitat Relationships (CWHR) categories....

Jeremy T. Rockweit, Julianna M. A. Jenkins, James E. Hines, James D. Nichols, Katie M. Dugger, Alan B. Franklin, Peter C. Carlson, William L. Kendall, Damon B. Lesmeister, Christopher McCafferty, Steven H. Ackers, L. Steven Andrews, Larissa L. Bailey, Jesse Burgher, Kenneth P. Burnham, Tara Chestnut, Mary M. Conner, Krista E. Dilione, Raymond J. Davis, Eric D. Forsman, Elizabeth M. Glenn, Scott A. Gremel, Keith A. Hamm, Dale R. Herter, J. Mark Higley … & Charles B. Yackulic
These datasets were used in the prosepctive meta-analysis of northern spotted owl reproductive rates over 25 years across 11 study areas located throughout the range of the owl. A multi-state occupancy file was created by collapsing site-specific information on owl reproductive status into bimonthly (2 per month) survey occasisons. These data were then analyzed to estimate annual reproductive rates, defined as: # owls successfully reproducing/# owl pairs, while accounting for variation in survey effort by...
