A method for deriving time-variable avian re-nesting probability functions for use in seasonal productivity models

Conference Proceeding
White, P. (2014)
A method for deriving time-variable avian re-nesting probability functions for use in seasonal productivity models. In Proceedings of the BOU’s 2013 Annual Conference - From populations to policy impact: avian demography in a changing world
