Data for Open water dreissenid mussel control projects: lessons learned from a retrospective analysis

Data for: Higher floral richness promotes rarer bee communities across remnant and reconstructed tallgrass prairies, though remnants contain higher abundances of a threatened bumble bee (Bombus Latreille)

Ian Lane, Zachary Portman, Christina Herron-Sweet, Jessica Petersen, Bethanne Bruninga-Socolar & Daniel Cariveau
Managing and restoring tallgrass prairie ecosystem is an important form of pollinator conservation in the Midwestern United States. Prairie reconstruction has been found to enhance native bee diversity and abundance, but it is less clear if prairie reconstruction conserves species thought to be at-risk. We reanalyze a previously published dataset on the bee communities of reconstructed and remnant prairie in the US state of Minnesota to investigate how the abundance of at-risk species respond to...

Data for: A new GTSeq resource to facilitate multijurisdictional research and management of walleye Sander vitreus

Peter Euclide, Wesley Lason, Matthew Bootsma, Loren Miller, Kim Scribner, Wendylee Stott, Chris Wilson & Emily Latch
Conservation and management professionals often work across jurisdictional boundaries to identify broad ecological patterns. These collaborations help to protect populations whose distributions span political borders. One common limitation to multijurisdictional collaboration is consistency in data recording and reporting. This limitation can impact genetic research which relies on data about specific markers in an organism’s genome. Incomplete overlap of markers between separate studies can prevent direct comparisons of results. Standardized marker panels can reduce the impact...

Survival data of Martes Americana and landscape variables associated with mortality events

Matthew Smith, John Erb & Jonathan Pauli
To test the effects of seasonal heterogeneity on a reintroduced carnivore, American martens (Martes americana), we compared metrics of local and season-specific heterogeneity to traditional forest metrics on the survival of 242 individuals across 8 years and predicted a survival landscape for 13 reintroduction sites. We identified a set of variables that characterized potentially important drivers of marten survival, allowing for a comparison between heterogeneity metrics (i.e., complexity of vegetation, land cover, and abiotic conditions)...
