Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
You can now access not one, but TWO, step-by-step user manuals for the Midwest Avian Data Center, as well as materials from recent workshops:
In this brief user’s guide, we describe data management and decision support tools offered by MWADC. We also provide an overview of links to outside resources. These tools are designed to manage and analyze bird monitoring data in support of avian conservation and management decisions. There is an emphasis on data management procedures which are typically needed for long-term monitoring programs. In addition to data management, we also review some exciting new decision support tools hosted on the MWADC site.
