Preliminary Analyses and Progress Reports

CBBS compiles preliminary reports of the current year’s results in the context of results to date as soon as possible after completion of each year’s replicate.  These reports are briefer than our Annual Technical Reports but serve as an important source of results pending completion of ATRs (preparation of which we are significantly behind on).

Also included here are summaries of completed projects from years for which a CBBS ATR is not available yet as well as summaries of stopover site fidelity at IBO and stable isotope analysis of feather samples from IBO.
