Breeding Bird Communities Liard Valley 1994 YT

Project name: WildTrax

Dataset summary : Purpose of the Study: 1) to identify avian communities associated with forested habitats in the Liard River Valley 2) to identify specialist species which exhibit restricted habitat use and are therefore most threatened by alterations to the natural landscape. General Methodology: We established 147 fixed-radius point counts (75 metre radius) to survey breeding bird communities in six different forested habitats as well as cutblocks in the Liard River Valley, Yukon. We census points in the seven habitat types. Data Owner: Canadian Wildlife Service, Environment and Climate Change Canada (Project lead - P. Sinclair) Study Area: Liard River Valley in southwest YukonSurveys were conducted between Watson Creek (60° 07’N/128° 57’W) and the Meister River (60° 20’N/129° 30’W) area along the Liard River, and along the lower Rancheria River from 60° 13’N/129° 18’W to the Liard River.

Information recorded which isn't in WildTrax: General habitat class, bird behaviour/detection type. For further information email: "This data was standardized for the Boreal Avian Modelling (BAM) Project and then transferred to WildTrax. Data was initially standardized for the BAM Version 4 SQL database. This was converted to BAM Version 6 Microsoft Access database in 2020 by updating the table structure. Finally, this data was moved to the WildTrax PostgreSQL database between 2021 to 2022 where it is accessible through the secure WildTrax website. As of 31 March 2022, data uploaded by BAM does not include some metadata. This metadata will become available in the near future following the necessary WildTrax updates. Please contact if you require this metadata."
