Bird Conservation Strategy for region 12 in Quebec: identified threats

Note: Only threats with a population-level effect were considered, and overall ranks were generated through a roll-up procedure described in Kennedy et al. (2012). L represents Low Magnitude threats, M: Medium, H: High, and VH: Very High. Cells with hyphens indicate that no priority species had population-level threats identified in the threat category/habitat combination.
