Abstract: Distribution and abundance of breeding seabirds at Heard I and the McDonald Is.
This dataset comprises a broad range of component datasets derived from ground surveys aerial photography and oblique photography. Since the data have also been derived from old station logs for the 1947-54 period, and from published and unpublished records for the 1947-present day period.
Aerial and oblique ... photography has been used to obtain supplementary information on distribution and abundance of seabirds in the region.
Recent surveys, 2000/01 onwards, have made use of GPS for more precise geographic information on seabird nests and colonies.
At present there are a number of child metadata records attached to this record. See the link above for details.
Additionally, data from this project has also been incorporated into several other databases/applications.
The State of the Environment Database (System for Indicator Management and Reporting - SIMR).
