Geo-referrenced NRCS Soil Data for Northern California genus Thomomys pocket gophers

This CSV file contains the soil information extracted from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) STATSGO soil database. The soil characteristics of clay, silt, sand, bulk density, linear extensibility are given as a weighted average for both a depth of 20cm and of 1m; the total soil depth for the area is also reported. These characteristics are associated with all unique specimen localities in our study area. Unique ID refers to the specimen's unique ID number in the Arctos collaborative museum database. The CatNum ID is the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (MVZ) catalog number we use to identify specimens throughout our analyses.
