Web Sites from Organizations and Research Associations

BirdLife International

This group "is a global alliance of conservation organizations working together for people, birds, and other wildlife." The site provides news, information, and data about bird species and important bird areas throughout the world, case studies, and reports such as State of the World's Birds, which describes "what is known about the status and distribution of birds, the pressures on sites, species and habitats, and an analysis of current conservation action."

Ecological Archives from the Ecological Society of America

http://www.esapubs.org/archive/

Ecological Archives "publishes materials that supplement articles appearing in ESA print journals (Ecology, Ecological Applications, and Ecological Monographs), as well as peer-reviewed Data Papers with abstracts published in the printed journals." Ecological Archives publishes three types of papers: Appendices, Supplements, and Data Papers. Appendices are viewable with standard web browser software and usually present photographs, tables, or audio and video materials. Supplements may include datasets, source codes for models, and software for "unusual statistical analyses." Authors must submit metadata in a standard format for supplements. "Data papers are compilations and syntheses of datasets and associated metadata deemed to be of significant interest to the ESA membership and the scholarly community." These are peer reviewed and announced with an abstract in the appropriate print journal. Data papers differ from review or synthesis papers in that they do not test or refine ecological theory.
