Trends in Arctic shorebird populations

Year: 2010 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, GRID-Arendal & CAFF
Shorebirds are the most diverse group of Arctic breeding birds and one of the most abundant. From the Arctic, they migrate to their non-breeding grounds along well-defined flyways that circle the world. As a group, however, their recent conservation status has been unfavorable. Trend data are only available for 65 of the 112 breeding shorebird populations that are wholly or largely confined to the Arctic. Of these, 35 populations (54%) are in decline, 29 are stable, and only one is increasing.
