Donald Introduction In Chapter 1, we saw how it was possible to use simple methods to assess the species composition in an area and to give an idea of their relative abundances. Here, we consider methods that will allow us to derive estimates of population.

The field methods were a full version of the territory-mapping census, as described in depth in the CBC Instructions of So, as well as simple numbers of territories on each plot in each year, the survey produced a map for each species on each census plot in each year to show exactly where the birds were (and were not) holding territory, a map which could then be compared directly to the.

The Caribbean is home to a wide variety of waterbirds, both year-round residents and seasonal migrants. These birds are an important part of Caribbean culture and ecology.
