Proposal Title: 

Vulnerability Analysis and Monitoring Program for Detecting Changes in San Francisco Bay Tidal Marsh Bird Populations Resulting from Climate Change


Project Summary: 

This project designs a monitoring program and protocol to detect the effects of climate change on tidal marsh bird population abundance and distribution. It is a companion to the project “Tidal Marsh Bird Population and Habitat Assessment for San Francisco Bay under Future Climate Change Conditions” and will build on its products, enabling evaluation of the long-term viability of four tidal-marsh bird species threatened by impacts of climate change: Clapper Rail, Black Rail, Common Yellowthroat, and Song Sparrow.
