Breeding Bird Assessment

Starting from the abundance index maps based on the breeding bird Atlas of Catalonia 1999-2002, the number of species present in the grid and the conservation status of each (with criteria established by the IUCN – International Union for Conservation of Nature – with specific regional corrections) are estimated. Indicators of assessment – species richness, index of conservation and maximum conservation value by grid – are also calculated.
