    A framework is being developed for a national environmental-monitoring program for Canada. Two classes of monitoring sites are suggested for each of the 15 terrestrial ecozones of Canada: (1) intensive sites in protected ...
  • Acoustical features of song categories of the Adelaide's warbler (Dendroica adelaidae) 

    Staicer, Cynthia A.. 1996. "Acoustical features of song categories of the Adelaide's warbler (Dendroica adelaidae)." Auk 113(4): 771-783.
    I identified acoustical features that distinguish the two song categories, A and B, of the Adelaide';s Warbler (Dendroica adelaidae). Like many other wood-warbler species, male Adelaide';s Warblers have functionally ...
