Aquatic dependent species species are inadequately sampled by terrestrial point counts and ARUs. Therefore, only a basic summary of the data is presented.
The map shows survey locations (+) and detections (dots). Natural regions are shown as different background colors. Note: off-grid sites are plotted at the nearest systematic site location, and the number of detections indicated and the actual number of dots in the map might be different.Download raw data
It was not possible to create complex habitat association models for species detected fewer than 100 times in southern Alberta study area. For these species, a coarse index of habitat use was determined as the proportion of detections in each native vegetation and human footprint type in comparison to the proportional availability of the habitat types (see methods and manual). An index value <0 indicates lower than expected proportion of detections in that habitat type; and index value >0 indicates a higher than expected proportion. Due to the coarseness of the analyses, maps of predicted habitat abundance were not created for these species.
Bird point count information was used from a variety of sources to conduct the modeling described in this website:
