Using data collected at thousands of locations across California, the PRBO
scientists project current and future statewide distributions for 64 bird species using climate models developed at UC Santa Cruz.
But since 1987, PRBO
biologists and other shark scientists have been conducting cutting-edge research on the Farallones' sharks.
Counts conducted by PRBO
since the 1970s targeted only the South Farallon Islands, whereas CDFG counts included the South and North Farallon Islands.
The California Rice Commission, Audubon California, PRBO
Conservation Science and other groups partnered with NRCS for over a decade.
Rhinoceros Auklets are believed to be monogamous (Richardson 1961; Leschner 1976; PRBO
unpublished data), and they generally breed in the same crevice or burrow, year after year.

Ornithologists at the PRBO
Conservation Science facility in Stinson Beach (also known as the Point Reyes Bird Observatory) capture and band about 2,500 birds each year to deepen our understanding of how they live and what is involved in their annual migrations.
We thank numerous PRBO
project leaders, field biologists, and intern biologists, especially Anne King, Ryan Degaudio, Tonya Haft, Stacy Small, and Mike Lynes.
We searched for and monitored nests following standardized protocols (Martin and Geupel 1993) on pre-existing nest plots established by PRBO
