Grant Description

***THIS IS A NOTICE OF SINGLE-SOURCE AWARD ONLY-NOT A RFP*** The objective of this study is to quantify grassland health using 3 species of quail (Mearns, scaled, and GambelДккs), 4 species of winter-resident songbirds (BairdДккs sparrow, Chestnut-collard longspur, McCownДккs sparrow, and SpragueДккs pipit), and 3 species of summer resident songbirds (CassinДккs sparrow, Black-throated sparrow, Lark sparrow, Eastern meadowlark, and Western meadowlark) as indicators. Because these 12 bird species inhabit a diversity of distinct niches (ranging from grasslands to riparian corridors) within the Chihuahuan Desert, they appear to be ideal indicators of broad-scale ecosystem change resulting from overgrazing.
