CBS03 Grasshopper sparrow surveys: densities, reproductive index, and locations of marked individuals on Konza Prairie

Summary

Short name: 

CBS03

Abstract: 

Data on the location, identity, and reproductive index (Vickery, 1992 #5253) of Grasshopper Sparrows within 10-ha plots on 14 watersheds units on Konza and on 2 adjoining units on the Rannells Preserve. Each plot was surveyed every ~7-10 days. These surveys documented individual sparrow locations, and are used to calculate dispersal distances and territory densities.
