In our last newsletter, we announced the publication of a manuscript by quantitative scientists working with IWMM monitoring data to build models of local abundance for waterfowl during spring and fall migration in the Atlantic and Mississippi flyways. The complete citation and link for this manuscript are:
Aagaard, K., S. M. Crimmins, W. E. Thogmartin, B. G. Tavernia, and J. E. Lyons. 2015. Evaluating predictors of local dabbling duck abundance during migra... 65: 100–120.
In addition, the first IWMM habitat validation study, conducted in 2012 to evaluate and refine IWMM habitat monitoring protocol, has been accepted for publication in the journal Wetlands Ecology and Management. A link to the publication, “An Evaluation of Rapid Methods for Monitoring Vegetation Characteristics of Wetland Bird Habitat” by B.G. Tavernia, J.E. Lyons, B.W. Loges, A. Wilson, J. A. Collazo, and M. C. Runge, will be coming soon.
