The recently completed “Standards for Monitoring Nonbreeding Shorebirds in the Western Hemisphere” were developed over the last several years by the Program for Regional and International Shorebird Monitoring (PRISM) Committee and other designers and practitioners of shorebird monitoring programs throughout the Western Hemisphere. The purpose of the document is to provide a unified set of standards to design and implement nonbreeding shorebird monitoring programs and projects. The standards focus on monitoring elements of survey sampling design, field methods and program administration. We see the standards as a living document and plan to develop supplements that provide detailed discussions of analytical approaches and data management, for example. We hope that implementation of these will increase the utility of shorebird monitoring data to inform conservation and management decisions across the hemisphere. You can find a pdf of the standards at: https://www.shorebirdplan.org/science/program-for-regional-and-international-shorebird-monitoring/.
