Hetero- and conspecifics effects on nest and chick survival for two listed species; piping plover and least tern breeding on the Missouri River, USA 2007-2016

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

We present two tabular digital data files representing values related how the presence of hetero- and conspecifics influence nest and chick survival for two listed migratory species breeding on the Missouri River; piping plover (Charadrius melodus) and least tern (Sternula antillarum). We followed 2,507 piping plover nests, 3,251 uniquely banded piping plover chicks, 1,060 least tern nests, and 1,377 uniquely banded least tern chicks from 2007 - 2009, 2012- 2016 in the Northern Great Plains of the US. This included river and reservoir habitats present on the Missouri River in North and South Dakota. Not all study areas were studied in all years. The nest survival dataset includes values for use with the Shaffer logistic exposure model, presence of piping plovers and least terns along with total number of nests of each species within in a variety of distances from a focal nest. It also contains habitat variables specific to certain study areas. The chick survival dataset includes capture histories along with presence of piping plovers and least terns.
