Conservation Planning - Landbirds
Landbird Planning in the West Gulf Coastal Plain/Ouachitas
Conservation Plans for other landbird guilds in the West Gulf Coastal Plain/Ouachitas are under development.
Landbird Planning in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley:
Parent Plan: North American Landbird Conservation Plan
MAV Plan: PIF Bird Conservation Plan for the MAV
Latest Plan Revision: 1999
Objectives Baseline Year: Variable
Population Objectives: Variable
Habitat Objectives: The PIF Plan details habitat requirements of priority species/guilds, and prescribes Bird Conservation Areas of three threshold size classes (4,000-8,000 ha, 8,00-40,000 ha, >40,000 ha) to meet priority species needs. Twedt et al. (2006) identifies high priority geographies for reforestation for high priority forest-nesting birds based on existing forest habitat and an assumed premium on increasing forest core.
