Greetings participants of the 2019 GGAS Fall Migrations:Shorebirds of California!
Here is where you can find information related to the course as well as downloadable PDFs of the presentations.
A quick word about sharing and media content: I would prefer the documents not be shared outside of the students of this course. Media content: photography is my own (Eddie) except one or two images by others, is noted. There are a couple of photographs that I’ve been provided with for personal or educational use from researchers but have lost the original photography credits for. The Black Oystercatcher chick is the only one I can think of but there may be others that are too cool or too cute to not include. Authors of specific research studies are noted, other data is from personal observation or a compilation of information gathered during reading. Life history and range graphs are from Cornell Lab.
Thanks again for participating in the class, looking forward to continuing the search and research of our fascinating shorebirds with you!
Class Description: Fall Migrations: Shorebirds of California
Due to the large data size, presentations are split into mini-sessions of Natural History and family portrait segments. The first class requires 7 separate PDF files. The Natural History segments are named NH1-1, NH1-2, etc. The Family portraits are part 1, part 2, etc. Still need to add a few segments.
