Supporting the conservation of North America's boreal birds through high-quality, data-driven and collaborative science.
To support research and conservation planning we have produced new density estimates for 143 boreal bird species as well as population sizes and regional habitat associations.

Online Workshop: Point-count data analysis
You can now watch the training videos and explore the workshop resources! On March 16, 2021, Péter Sólymos delivered a training workshop about the analysis of point-count data in the presence of variable survey methodologies and detection error. The workshop, which was organized by BIOS2, is aimed at researchers analyzing field observations.
PhD Opportunity: species distribution and abundance models of Canadian owls
A PhD position is available in the Cumming lab at Laval University, Québec City, and is a collaboration with BAM, Birds Canada, and researchers in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. The position will develop species distribution models to predict the density of owl species within the Canadian boreal region, and to estimate their total population sizes.
