Cooperative Conservation - Determinants of Landowner Engagement in Conserving Endangered Species
By:

This paper analyzes surveys of private landowners to identify factors that determine landowner engagement in the conservation of endangered species.

 

Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) Information Resource for the United States Geological Survey

The Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) information resource for the United States Geological Survey located at the Wetland and Aquatic Research Center. This site has been established as a central repository for accurate and spatially referenced biogeographic accounts of nonindigenous aquatic species. The program provides scientific reports, online/realtime queries, spatial data sets, regional contact lists, and general information. The data is made available for use by biologists, interagency groups, and the general public. The geographical coverage is the United States.

For more information on the NAS program see the NAS Flyer.

 

National Invasive Species Information Center (NISIC) - Gateway to invasive species information covering Federal, State, local, and international sources.

The National Invasive Species Information Center (NISIC) was established in 2005 at the National Agricultural Library to meet the information needs of users including the National Invasive Species Council (Council). NISIC creates and manages the www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov Web site. The Web site serves as a reference gateway to information, organizations, and services about invasive species.
 
The Center grew out of NAL's leadership in the development of the Invasivespecies.gov Web site for the Council. In June 2000, Invasivespecies.gov was launched as a joint collaboration between NAL, the U.S. Geological Survey, National Biological Information Infrastructure, and the Council. The site began with less than 200 links to external resources. By June 2005 the Web site had more than 12,000 unique links. A major redesign was needed to enhance access to this growing wealth of resources.
 
A new Web site, www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov, managed by NISIC was launched in 2005 built largely on the general content from the original www.invasivespecies.gov Web site.
 
Invasivespecies.gov is managed by the staff of the National Invasive Species Council to meet the administrative, communication, and facilitation needs specifically related to the business and activity of the Council.

 

National Estuarine and Marine Exotic Species Information System (NEMESIS)

National Estuarine and Marine Exotic Species Information System (NEMESIS) is a resource for information on non-native (or exotic) species that occur in coastal marine waters of the United States. National Estuarine and Marine Exotic Species Information System (NEMESIS), developed by the Marine Invasions Research Laboratory at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, provides comprehensive information on approximately 500 introduced marine and estuarine species of invertebrates and algae with established populations in the continental United States.  Designed for a diverse audience, from researchers and resource managers to students and the public, NEMESIS is a portal for access to general or specific information on introduced marine species in the United States.

 

National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) Pest Tracker

This website publishes survey maps for pests of agricultural and forest commodities and provides links to pest news and information. The National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) stores and manages pest survey data that is collected by CAPS (Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey) and other PPQ (Plant Protection and Quarantine) survey programs. Detection surveys are one tool used to manage the introduction of exotic pests.

 

California Invasive Plant Inventory Database

The Cal-IPC Inventory

The Inventory categorizes plants that threaten California's natural areas. The Inventory includes plants that currently cause damage in California (invasive plants) as well as "Watch" plants that are a high risk of becoming invasive in the future

 

Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States

 

USDA PLANTS Database

The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories. It includes names, plant symbols, checklists, distributional data, species abstracts, characteristics, images, crop information, automated tools, onward Web links, and references. This information primarily promotes land conservation in the United States and its territories, but academic, educational, and general use is encouraged. PLANTS reduces government spending by minimizing duplication and making information exchange possible across agencies and disciplines.
 
PLANTS is a collaborative effort of the USDA NRCS National Plant Data Team (NPDT), the USDA NRCS Information Technology Center (ITC), The USDA National Information Technology Center (NITC), and many other partners. Much of the PLANTS data and design is developed at NPDT, and the Web application is programmed at ITC and NITC and served through the USDA Web Farm. Here’s more information about who does what on the PLANTS Team, our Partners, and our Data Contributors.

 

iMapInvasives

iMapInvasives provides an on-line, GIS-based data management system to assist citizen scientists and natural resource managers working to protect natural resources from the threat of invasive species. Visit the iMapinvasives website 

 

California Non-native Estuarine and Marine Organisms

The Cal-NEMO database includes comprehensive and user-friendly information on established non-native invertebrates and algae in the marine and estuarine waters of California. A collaboration between Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), Cal-NEMO is a portal of the National Estuarine and Marine Exotic Species Information System (NEMESIS).

Cal-NEMO replaces CANOD, OSPR’s inventory of non-native species in California. Improvements include images and descriptions for identification, maps of global distributions, and information about species ecology and impacts. It is a long-term, dynamic database that we will continue to update as new species are discovered and new research becomes available.

Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper

This project is part of a collaborative effort to map and better understand monarch butterflies and their host plants across the Western U.S. Data compiled through this project will improve our understanding of the distribution and phenology of monarchs and milkweeds, identify important breeding areas, and help us better understand monarch conservation needs. Some of the key research questions that these data will help us answer include:

  • Where are different milkweed species growing in the West?
  • Where are monarchs occurring in the West?
  • Where are monarchs breeding in the West?
  • When is milkweed emerging and senescing (dying back) in the West?
  • How does milkweed phenology (life cycle) differ by species?
  • When is monarch breeding occurring in specific areas/regions of the West?
  • What types of habitats are different milkweed species associated with?

Your help is critical to the success of this project! Because monarchs and their host plants are found all across the western U.S., the best way to document them is to engage a multitude of volunteers and their cameras. You can participate in this effort by using this website to:

  • Upload your photos of monarchs and milkweeds;
  • Identify milkweeds using our milkweed key, which profiles over 40 milkweed species found in the west;
  • Submit data which will help researchers determine the distribution, phenology, and conservation needs of monarchs and milkweeds in the west; and
  • Learn about monarchs, their host plants, and ongoing conservation efforts for these species.
