APPROXIMATING VARIANCE OF DEMOGRAPHIC PARAMETERS USING THE DELTA METHOD: A REFERENCE FOR AVIAN BIOLOGISTS
Abstract Avian biologists routinely estimate sampling variance for parameter estimates such as daily nest survival, fecundity, annual survival, and density. However, many biologists are not certainExpand

Effects of forest management on density, survival, and population growth of wood thrushes.
Loss and alteration of breeding habitat have been proposed as causes of declines in several Neotropical migrant bird populations. We conducted a 4-year study to determine the effects of winterExpand

A model to predict breeding-season productivity for multibrooded songbirds
Breeding-season productivity (the per capita number of offspring surviving to the end of the breeding season) is seldom estimated for multibrooded songbirds because of cost and logisticalExpand

WOOD THRUSH MOVEMENTS AND HABITAT USE: EFFECTS OF FOREST MANAGEMENT FOR RED-COCKADED WOODPECKERS
Abstract We monitored adult and juvenile breeding-season movements and habitat use of radio-tagged Wood Thrushes (Hylocichla mustelina) at the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge, central Georgia, USA.Expand

Simultaneous use of mark-recapture and radiotelemetry to estimate survival, movement, and capture rates
Biologists often estimate separate survival and movement rates from radiotelemetry and mark -recapture data from the same study population. We describe a method for combining these data types in aExpand

Habitat Selection and Brood Survival of Greater Prairie-Chickens
The Greater Prairie-Chicken (Tym- panuchus cupido pinnatus) is a species that may benefit from conversion of crop ground to grass- land through the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). CRP grasslandsExpand

Assessment of Hatchery-Reared Pallid Sturgeon Survival in the Lower Missouri River
Abstract The population of pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus in the lower Missouri River between Gavins Point Dam (river kilometer [rkm] 1,305.2) and the confluence with the Mississippi River (rkmExpand

Population Size of Hatchery-Reared and Wild Pallid Sturgeon in the Lower Missouri River
Abstract The population size of pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus is currently unknown throughout much of the Missouri River. Listed as federally endangered in 1990, the pallid sturgeon remainsExpand

Variation in Wood Thrush Nest Dimensions and Constructio
We collected 48 nests from radio-marked and nonradio-marked female Wood Thrushes (Hylocichla mustelina) at the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge in central Georgia and conducted statistical analysesExpand

Factors affecting female space use in ten populations of prairie chickens
Conservation of wildlife depends on an understanding of the interactions between animal movements and key landscape factors. Habitat requirements of wide-ranging species often vary spatially, butExpand
