Colonial and Non-colonial Waterbird Bibliography

Bibliographic Database developed for the Northern Prairie and Parkland Waterbird Conservation Plan

This database was created as a means of providing a bibliographic resource on many aspects of colonial and non-colonial waterbird ecology. It was compiled by a number of partner agencies working collaboratively on the Northern Prairie and Parkland Waterbird Conservation Plan, including the Canadian Wildlife Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, and many others. Geographical emphasis was placed on the northern prairie and parkland region of North America, composing Bird Conservation Region 11 of the North American Waterbird Conservation Plan. The database consists of about 2250 entries from the 1880's through 2001. The database was created using references from a number of sources. References include both published and unpublished papers and documents, and from web resources. This database will be updated periodically.
