Description

Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) occurrence data in watersheds in western Kentucky (Ledbetter Creek) and western Tennessee (Panther Creek).

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 462 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Title Predicting the spatial distribution of Lonicera japonica in two watersheds in western Kentucky and Tennessee
Funding Kentucky Science and Engineering Foundation
Study Area Description Th is study compared the spatial distribution and pattern of Japanese honeysuckle in two watersheds, Ledbetter Creek in western Kentucky, and Panther Creek in Tennessee, utilizing geospatial techniques. These two watersheds are similar in size and are roughly 30 km apart (Fig. 1). Both streams empty into the Kentucky Lake Reservoir. Ledbetter Creek is located on the west side of Kentucky Lake. Its watershed contains forest, cropland, grassland, and small communities that cover an area of about 24 km2. The recently opened highway KY80 cuts through the watershed on the north, which will likely bring more disturbance and change to the area. Panther Creek, an almost completely forested watershed, is located on the east side of the Kentucky Lake Reservoir within the Land Between the Lakes National Recreational Area.
Design Description 63 random sampling points were assigned to two watersheds based on the aerial maps. We established 32 sampling points at the Ledbetter Creek Watershed and 31 sampling points at the Panther Creek Watershed. Each sampling point contained 10 to 20 plots, each 1-m x 1-m in size. Th e plots were distributed approximately 15 m apart along the transect lines. Each transect length was determined by measuring the distance from the sampling point to the main road. We collected data from 210 plots within the Ledbetter Creek Watershed and 323 plots within the Panther Creek Watershed. We measured the following six variables, which are most likely to constrain the geographic distribution of the species: species richness per plot, distance from the main road, elevation, soil moisture, soil pH, and light intensity.
