Mercury Condition Index Tool

The Mercury Condition Index Tool uses existing data of mercury concentrations in invertebrates, fish, and birds within national parks to estimate a park level Condition Index (and associated uncertainty) for mercury, based on its potential risk to fish and wildlife health. The tool employs a series of logic steps to convert provided data into standardized units, based upon both basic stoichiometr

Density-weighted proportion (dwp) tool suite

Estimating the number of birds or bats killed at a wind power facility involves adjusting observed carcass counts to account for imperfect detection. To account for carcasses that lie outside the searched area, the count is adjusted by dividing by the estimated proportion of carcasses lying within the searched area or the density-weighted proportion (dwp). The dwp package provides tools for estima
