A Hierarchical Spatial Count Model with Application to American Woodcock

taped seminar presented by Dr. Wayne Thogmartin, March 16, 2006

Partners in Flight (PIF) assigns conservation scores to species by region, with higher scores signifying greater management concern based on rarity, population declines, or habitat specificity. These scores are updated annually as new information about population trends become available. The scores presented here were reported in the PIF Bird Conservation Plan for PIF Region 16, Upper Great Lakes Plain.
