Bird Conservation Strategy for region 8 in the Prairies and Northern Region: identified threats

Bird Conservation Strategy for Bird Conservation Region 8 in Prairie and Northern region: Boreal softwood shield

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