Documenting Management Actions

Documenting Management Actions: The “KEY” to Evaluating Habitat Management for Non-breeding Waterbirds Wetland managers need to monitor waterbirds and their habitats during the nonbreeding period to improve the efficacy of management decision making (Lyons et al. 2008), but are often limited in terms of time and staff. Therefore, Integrated Waterbird Management and Monitoring (IWMM) developed [...]

More Than Birds: Note on the IWMM Database

Vegetation Survey Waterbird surveys over the migration and wintering periods have coincided with wetland management efforts for decades. However, bird counts alone cannot be linked to habitat conditions and management actions. Recording habitat conditions and management actions concurrent with bird use represent critical steps in building this link. To this end, participants using [...]

IWMM Migration Model Available in Peer-reviewed Journal, Ecological Applications

This manuscript describes a mechanistic model of bird migration based on a bio-energetic approach is designed to be used widely by bird conservation partnerships. The unique aspect of this approach is that it allows us to understand how local actions (e.g., acquisition or restoration) affect flyway or continental populations.  Most non-breeding bird habitat conservation efforts [...]
