Item Identification

Title: GT-polygon
Short Name: GT-polygon
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Birds are divided into several species subgroups based on taxonomy, morphology, behavior, and oil spill vulnerability and sensitivity. The SPECIES table lists all the birds included on the maps, sorted by subgroup. These species were included either because of their likelihood of impact by an oil spill, or their special protection status as threatened or endangered. The major types of bird areas depicted in this atlas include: resident and migratory waterfowl concentration areas; migratory shorebird concentration areas; seabird concentration areas; and colonial waterbird nesting sites (for seabirds and shorebirds). Although birds are a major resource shown on the Prince William Sound ESI maps, distributions of seabirds are shown only in the areas where surveys have been conducted. Waterfowl concentration areas shown on the map are derived from survey data provided by Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Winter surveys were conducted in March and summer surveys were conducted in July. In addition to the concentrations mapped, waterfowl can be found in most areas that have marshes and tidal flats. The Copper River Delta is the most important concentration area for waterfowl and shorebirds, both migratory and resident birds. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
