Survey Data: Vermillion/Cannon River Bottoms


Kirsch, E.M. and Gray, B., 2017, Vermillion/Cannon River Bottoms Important bird survey data: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Vegetation and breeding birds were sampled in Upper Mississippi River floodplain forest edge and interior areas to (1) measure Phalaris cover and (2) evaluate if the breeding bird assemblage responded to differences in Phalaris cover or other forest structure variables. Data are counts of birds collected during 3 surveys within 50m at each site using 10 minute point count methods. Vegetation was sampled using a releve technique at the bird count point within 10m of the point.
