Bird Monitoring Strategy for Oregon and Washington

Stephens 2011 OR WA monitoring strategy cover 72 ppi 4.5x6The Landbird Monitoring Strategy for Oregon and Washington offers a comprehensive approach to identifying and meeting monitoring priorities in this region.  This strategy aligns with national monitoring goals of Partners in Flight and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative (NABCI), as well as with the priorities and guiding documents of numerous federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, Joint Ventures, and Landscape Conservation Cooperatives.  Guided by the four monitoring priorities of NABCI, this strategy identifies seven monitoring goals and associated short and long term measurable actions.  This strategy will be useful in identifying links between organizational and regional priorities, assessing existing monitoring programs and developing new monitoring programs, and for scaling programs up to contribute to regional information needs.
