Non-native and synanthropic bird data derived from 2010-2012 Breeding Bird Survey and associated landscape metrics from 2011 NLCD

January 7, 2020

Locations of and proportional abundance of non-native and synanthropic passerines were extracted from Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) data from 2010-2012. Information characterizing the spatial variation and the associated amount, aggregation, and diversity of developed and agricultural land cover types was extracted from the National Land Cover Datasets of 2011. Data supported analyses in the publication: Sofaer, H.R., C.H. Flather, C.S. Jarnevich, K.P. Davis, and L. Pejchar. Human-associated species dominate passerine communities across the United States.
