Human footprint change during the last decade

February 17, 2015 Talks ABMI footprint video

The ABMI hosted its 2nd annual Speakers’ Series ‘Better Environmental Management Through Monitoring 2015’ to understand distribution of biodiversity and to inform sustainable resource development and biological conservation in Alberta.

Data and details are in this ABMI Science Letter.

Fitting removal models with the detect R package

In a paper recently published in the Condor, titled Evaluating time-removal models for estimating availability of boreal birds during point-count surveys: sample size requirements and model complexity, we assessed different ways of controlling for point-count duration in bird counts using data from the Boreal Avian Modelling Project. As the title indicates, the paper describes a cost-benefit analysis to make recommendations about when to use different types of the removal model. The paper is open access, so feel free to read the whole paper here).
