Keywords are provided to assist in searching this bibliography. One keyword, BBS, has been applied to all citations in case the user wishes to retrieve all 578. We have used the following terms to denote the major themes of this database:

Geographic Range: for references using BBS data as a source of distributional
information for species

Survey Overview: general articles about the BBS and the history of the survey

Survey Methods: sources that discusses the methodology specific to the BBS. Literature sources that provide general information about point-count methodology have been excluded

Analytical Methods: articles discussing the development of trend estimation procedures that have been applied to BBS data

Population Trends: references summarizing the trends estimated for a single species or group of species

State Summary: sources that have summarized the activities of the BBS within a single state or province/territory in Canada. These references may have summarized population trends, distributional data, and/or general information about survey activities.

Regional Summary: sources summarizing BBS data over multiple states, provinces, or territories

Guild Summary: summaries of BBS data for groups of species with similar traits (e.g. Neotropical migrants, grassland birds, cavity-nesting birds, etc...)
