A glossary for avian conservation biology

Koford, Rolf R.; Dunning, John B., Jr.; Ribic, Christine A.; Finch, Deborah M. 1994. A glossary for avian conservation biology. Wilson Bulletin. 106(1): 121-137.

This glossary provides standard definitions for many of the terms used in avian conservation biology. We compiled these definitions to assist communication among researchers, managers, and others involved in the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Program, also known as Partners in Flight. We used existing glossaries and recent literature to prepare this glossary. The cited sources were not necessarily the first ones to use the terms. Many definitions were taken verbatim from the cited source material. Others were modified slightly to clarify the meaning. Definitions that were modified to a greater extent are indicated as being adapted from the originals. Terms that have been used in more than one way by different authors are listed with numbered alternative definitions

Keywords: avian conservation biology, glossary, definitions, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Program, Partners in Flight
