Many Arctic shorebird populations are declining, and quantifying adult survival and the effects of anthropogenic factorsis a crucial step toward a better understanding of population dynamics. We used a recently developed, spatially explicitCormack–Jolly–Seber model in a Bayesian framework to obtain broad-scale estimates of true annual survival rates for 6species of shorebirds at 9 breeding sites across the North American Arctic in 2010–2014. We tested for effects ofenvironmental and ecological variables, study site, nest fate, and sex on annual survival rates of each species in thespatially explicit framework, which allowed us to distinguish between effects of variables on site fidelity versus truesurvival. Our...

This data package presents legacy data on Emperor Goose, Cackling Goose, Black Brant, and Greater White-fronted Goose, breeding biology, behavior, and morphology collected at study sites near Kokechik Bay on the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge (previously Clarence Rhodes National Wildlife Refuge), Alaska during the summers of 1982 through 1988. These data were collected to provide a basis for the evaluation of long-term changes in Emperor Goose and other waterfowl biology on the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, Alaska.

The Shorebird Demographic Network is an international collaboration designed to evaluate how climate mediated changes in the arctic ecosystem are affecting shorebird distribution, ecology, and demography. The main purpose of the network is to monitor demographic parameters (e.g. nest success, adult survival) of widely distributed shorebirds, so that we may develop conservation strategies that tackle the most pressing problems facing these declining species. The Arctic LCC contribution adds monitoring components that track key environmental attributes (e.g. water and prey availability) that are expected to link climate with changing shorebird populations.This project attempted to evaluate portions of two conceptual...

The Arctic Shorebird Demographic Network (Network) is aninternational collaboration dedicated to gaining a betterunderstanding of why arctic-nesting shorebirds are in declineand determine which life history stage (i.e., breeding success vs.adult survival) is limiting shorebird population growth ordriving declines.

We found few reports in the literature containing useful data on the nesting phenology of lesser prairie-chickens; therefore, managers must rely on short-term observations and measurements of parameters that provide some predictive insight into climate impacts on nesting ecology. Our field studies showed that prairie-chickens on nests were able to maintain relatively consistent average nest temperature of 31 °C and nest humidities of 56.8 percent whereas average external temperatures (20.3–35.0 °C) and humidities (35.2– 74.9 percent) varied widely throughout the 24 hour (hr) cycle. Grazing and herbicide treatments within our experimental areas were designed to be less intensive than in common practice. We determined...
