Description:
Abstract:
This data set describes results from a species richness project conducted in Alaska during May-July, 2012. Seven locations were surveyed for 5 consecutive days each to detect the presence of any vertebrate species occurring there. A variety of methods were employed including trapping, point counts, and casual observation. Sampling locations were selected on the basis of representative sampling of biomes and a range of elevations along the Yukon River in Alaska. The following sites are included: Yukon Crossing (latitude 65.86579 N, longitude -149.74113 W, elevation 200 m), Kokrine Hills (latitude 64.92532 N, longitude -154.99438 W, elevation 730), Nulato Hills (latitude 64.44390 N, longitude -150.60069, elevation 28), Fox Point Island (latitude 63.02524 N, longitude -159.79390 W, elevation 25), Kako Mountain (latitude 61.91278 N, longitude -159.45473 W, elevation 196 m), Mountain Village (latitude 62.11773 N, longitude -163.84276 W, elevation 7 m), Bethel (latitude 60.81123 N, longitude -161.81007, elevation 14). Species were described with the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS.org). For wider context and information, please see also related datasets for plot descriptions, small mammal trapping, plant collections and a plot-specific species list. This dataset is part of an ongoing PhD thesis by the author.
Purpose:
Provide geo-referenced open access data for a dissertation about isoscapes for Alaskan small mammals during summer. This dataset is part of an ongoing PhD thesis by the author.
