BIRD NUMBERS is published by the AVIAN DEMOGRAPHY UNIT
(ADU), Department of Statistical Sciences, University of
Cape Town, Rondebosch, 7701, South Africa. It is
distributed free of charge to ADU project participants.
The ADU is a research unit of the University of Cape Town
and enjoys the partnership of BirdLife South Africa.
The mission of the Avian Demography Unit is to contribute
to the improved understanding of bird populations,
especially bird population dynamics, and thus make a
contribution to their conservation. We achieve this
through mass-participation projects, long-term
monitoring, innovative statistical modelling and
population-level interpretation of results. The emphasis
is on the curation, analysis, publication and
dissemination of data.
