Data from: Influence of climate change and post-delisting management on long-term population viability of the conservation-reliant Kirtland’s warbler

Donald Brown, Deahn Donner, Christine A. Ribic & Carol Bocetti
Rapid global climate change is resulting in novel abiotic and biotic conditions and interactions. Identifying management strategies that maximize probability of long-term persistence requires an understanding of the vulnerability of species to environmental changes. We sought to quantify the vulnerability of Kirtland’s Warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii), a rare Neotropical migratory songbird that breeds almost exclusively in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan and winters in the Bahamian Archipelago, to projected environmental changes on the breeding and wintering...

A method for probabilistic assessment of tunneling-induced damage to surface structures considering soil-structure interaction effects

Jinyan Zhao, Andrea Franza & Matthew DeJong
Uncertainty in the early stage assessment of surface structure damage caused by tunneling-induced ground movements is analyzed with a Monte-Carlo method and a numerical model for tunnel-soil-structure interaction. The sources of uncertainty in tunneling-induced ground movements are quantified using field monitoring data, and the uncertainties in soil and structure properties are characterized from published experimental tests and empirical analyses. Then, a probabilistic assessment method to analyze structural damage is proposed and demonstrated by two case...

Data from: Using a full annual cycle model to evaluate long-term population viability of the conservation-reliant Kirtland’s warbler after successful recovery

Donald J. Brown, Christine A. Ribic, Deahn M. Donner, Mark D. Nelson, Carol I. Bocetti, Christie M. Deloria-Sheffeld & Christie M. Deloria-Sheffield
Long-term management planning for conservation-reliant migratory songbirds is particularly challenging because habitat quality in different stages and geographic locations of the annual cycle can have direct and carry-over effects that influence the population dynamics. The Neotropical migratory songbird Kirtland's warbler Setophaga kirtlandii (Baird 1852) is listed as endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and Near Threatened under the IUCN Red List. This conservation-reliant species is being considered for U.S. federal delisting because the species...
