Birds of a feather: Interpolating distribution patterns of urban birds

Computers, Environment and Urban Systems, 77(1), 59–28.

By: J. Walker*, R. Balling*, J. Briggs*, M. Katti*, P. Warren* & E. Wentz*

author keywords: interpolation; Kriging; avian; urban; home range; population distribution
TL;DR: This work derives habitat probability maps for three bird species known to differentially occupy the urban to rural gradient within the Phoenix metropolitan area and surrounding desert and finds that both methods adequately captured spatial distribution of the three species and are sufficient for creating distribution maps of avian species.
