In addition to student theses, final reports, and peer reviewed manuscripts, our team has developed tools or provided data for various projects to help inform aquatic conservation and management.  Below is a list of the project, the data/tool derived form that project, and a reference for the data or tool. Many of our spatial datasets and linked to a segment ID of the NHDplus stream layer.  However, we have slightly modified that layer for Missouri. Therefore, if you download the data from the projects listed with an *, please use the base layers provided immediately below.
