Entry ID: UAF_marbledmurreletmarinedensity

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains Marbled Murrelet marine density surveys (number of
birds/km2) at georeferenced locations along the British Columbia coast. The
surveys span a period of 14 years but only include those that were conducted
within the Marbled Murrelet breeding period defined as April to August. This
includes the immediate pre- and post breeding period also. Because ... View entire text

Quality Various researchers have conducted the at-sea surveys that are presented here,
and while in all instances, the surveys have been standardized to a density
unit, there are differences in the methodology depending on the study. In some
cases, the average density is reported and does not include the variance around
that measure.

Where the survey type is not reported, NA will be noted.
