Status and Trends of Boreal Land Bird Populations

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Boreal habitats in Alaska support 130 species of breeding landbirds, including 68 species that migrate to Neotropical wintering areas. Significant population declines have been documented for many of these species in temperate regions over the past 30 years. Land managers in Alaska are currently faced with major decisions that will influence the functioning of entire ecosystems, including how...
