Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), Black-Throated Green Warbler, British Columbia, Connecticut Warbler
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
The objectives of this project are to: 1. Analyse existing raw data of habitat relationships for two warbler species at risk in northeast British Columbia, namely, Black-throated Green Warbler and Connecticut Warbler; 2. Identify habitat variables that are predictors of Connecticut Warbler occurrence and, if the data permit, Black-throated Green Warbler presence/absence; 3. Identify limitations of the existing dataset; 4. Suggest ways to improve future projects, addressing information gaps and ground-truthing models; 5. Prepare a framework for developing assessment tools that would aid in identifying highly suitable breeding areas for Black-throated Green Warbler and Connecticut Warbler; 6. Provide scale-dependent management recommendations for monitoring the status of these species in northeast British Columbia, and; 7. Summarize important findings relevant to the species' biology and habitat requirements that will help protect these at risk species.
