Bird Conservation Strategy for region 14 in Prince Edward Island and marine unit 12: identified threats

Relative magnitude of identified threats to priority species within BCR 14 PEI by threat category and broad habitat class. The table is presented here in two parts.

Overall ranks were generated through a roll-up procedure described in Kennedy et al. (2012). L represents Low Magnitude threats; M = Medium; H = High. Blank cells indicate that no priority species had threats identified in the threat category/habitat combination.
