Threatened Mallee Birds in Heathlands Project - Data for N-mixture models

posted on 2024-04-16, 00:21 authored by Simon VerdonSimon Verdon

Data used to generate N-mixture models for eight rare bird species in the semi-arid mallee/heathlands of south-eastern Australia. Species are listed in the file names.

File types consist of:

  • site attributes (SITE_COVARIATES)
  • survey attributes (OBSERVATION_COVARIATES)
  • counts of birds per survey - separate file per species (BIRD_OBSERVATIONS)

Note that observations of most species relate to the same set of sites and surveys, however, for the Slender-billed Thornbill, we used a restricted set of sites and surveys. As a result the SITE_COVARIATES and OBSERVATION_COVARIATES files are different for this species.
