Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
I'm currently a PhD student in the SILVIS lab, investigating the effects of extreme climate events on forest songbirds.
I'm sure many of us encounter unwieldy databases from time to time. I turn to the familiar Excel, but I'm sure this is far from the best option! What programs do you use for your data, bird-related or otherwise? I'm interested in open source solutions, and curious to try other things!

A theme of my dissertation project is the application of remotely sensed products to avian populations nationwide. I'm using NASA's data sets (freely available!) to characterize weather/climate phenomena that may be important to birds. Land surface temperature is highly correlated with air temperature, thus providing meaningful data about thermal conditions for the time period captured.
In my prior post, I mentioned MYD11A2: an 8-day, 1km resolution land surface temperature data set…Continue

I currently use MODIS imagery to characterize extreme climate events. Specifically, I've been using MYD11A2 and MYD13A3 to detect heat wave and drought, respectively. Does anyone else here use remote sensing and satellite imagery? Leave me a comment!
