Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
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!
Habitat conservation planning for migrating and wintering waterfowl is typically based on estimated foraging needs during these non-breeding periods. However, several factors limit the ability to draw strong inferences from the historic Midwest data sets of non-breeding waterfowl abundance collected by wildlife agencies. Survey protocols are not standardized among organizations, a statistically based sampling framework has not been developed, and the financial burden of surveys typically…Continue
