SDE Feature Class
Anser albifrons, California, biota, Central Valley, telemetry, greater white-fronted geese
The purpose of this data set is to improve understanding of the ecology of greater white-fronted geese in California and serve as baseline data on which to impacts on white-fronted goose ecology of changes in the Central Valley landscape. These and earlier data are compared in Ackerman et al. 2006.
Using radio-telemetry, greater white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons frontalis) distribution and movements during winter in Central California were determined during 1998-99 and 1999-2000. Accuracy of individual data fields has been reviewed. Data collection for 1998-2000 is complete although additional years may be added.
