Robustness of simple avian population trend models for semi-structured citizen science data is species-dependent
Citizen scientists are collecting opportunistic biodiversity records on unprecedented temporal and spatial scales, vastly outnumbering the records achievable from structured surveys.
Every year more and more people contribute records of the animals and plants they observe around them to citizen science schemes.
Climatic and soil conditions in the Brecks are such that a particularly notable assemblage of plants is found locally.
Breckland hosts a broad range of mammal, reptile and amphibian species which, because of their often secretive nature, can be difficult to track down without some local knowledge.
Assessing factors associated with changes in the numbers of birds visiting gardens in winter: Are predators partly to blame?
Population responses of bird populations to climate change on two continents vary with species' ecological traits but not with direction of change in climate suitability
Wind‐associated detours promote seasonal migratory connectivity in a flapping flying long‐distance avian migrant
The current state of nature
An overview of how the country’s wildlife is faring, looking back over nearly 50 years of monitoring to see how nature has changed.
Avian vulnerability to wind farm collision through the year: insights from Lesser Black-backed Gulls (Larus fuscus) tracked from multiple breeding colonies
New BTO research has explored how vulnerable Lesser Black-backed Gulls breeding in Britain are to collisions with wind turbines whilst on migration and during the winter months, as well as during the breeding season.
One-third of English breeding bird species show evidence of population responses to climatic variables over 50 years
Population growth rates affected by climatic variables
Research by BTO and Natural England, suggests that climate change has had a detectable impact on a sizeable proportion of England’s avifauna over the last 50 years.
