An Atlas of Movements of Southwest Siberian Waterbirds
This publication is based on eight decades of bird banding and recovery work by Russian scientists, involving more than half a million waterbirds. The basic field data was stored in databases of local Russian research agencies but most data were never disclosed for the wider scientific audience. Due to excellent cooperation between Russian and Dutch scientists the data were analysed and interpreted in 2005, resulting in the current atlas. It provides a significant contribution to the knowledge of migration movements of waterbirds.
This publication is one of the scientific results of the project “Conservation of Wetlands and Wetland Species in South West Siberia” is the Atlas of movements of Southwest Siberian waterbirds”.
