Dataset Abstract

This dataset contains the bird communities sampled from the German region

Dataset Design

Bird communities were sampled during 15 minutes by classical count points. All birds heard or seen within 100 meters were mapped and counted by an observer during three consecutive 5-minute replicates, which limited the risk of double counting and ensured community closure during the sampling.
