Two recent research publications funded by AWCF were just published.
The first study examined the effects of forest management,including herbicide applications, on prairie warblers, while the second study examined eastern whip-poor-will breeding ecology. PDF copies of the publications are below.

Objectives: To determine the species of non-native earthworms in the Adirondacks, their distribution and relation to soil and vegetation characteristics.
Assessing Impacts of Crude Oil on Reproduction of Migratory Birds
Morris Animal Foundation, Denver, CO. - $2,000.
Objective: To determine if PAH found in eggs can be linked to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Progress: Preliminary results show that the eggs of migratory birds (White Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants) contained higher levels of PAH's (poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) than those in the eggs of non-migratory Canada Geese.
Hopefully, this information will help in policy making decisions.
