Speaker: Matt Reiter, Avian Wetland Quantitative Ecologist, Point Blue Conservation Science

How do changes in habitat management and climate effect shorebird populations at local, regional and hemispheric scales? The Pacific Flyway Shorebird Survey project, let by Matt Reiter of Point Blue Conservation Science, seeks to answer this question. 

This broad-scale, multi-species research and monitoring program will form the foundation to assess shorebird population response to future land use and climate change both within the California LCC and across the Pacific Coast of the Americas. By improving our understanding of which factors most strongly influence shorebird populations and the availability of their habitat through innovative analytical and informatics tools, this project maximizes the value of monitoring data to inform adaptive conservation and management.
