Item Identification

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

Birds in this atlas 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 are included either because of their likelihood of direct or indirect impact by an oil spill or similar incident, their general rarity or imperilment, or their special protection status as threatened or endangered. Marine, wetland, and aquatic species; nesting sites and colonies; and protected species are especially emphasized. Seabird concentration areas and nesting colonies in this atlas were based mainly on information provided by U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) Division of Fish and Wildlife and British Virgin Islands (BVI) Conservation and Fisheries Department (CFD) biologists. Concentration areas for wetland and aquatic birds were based mainly on information presented in several USVI DPNR Division of Fish and Wildlife reports, and through discussions with DPNR, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), National Park Service (NPS), and BVI CFD biologists and resource managers. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
