The modelling and mapping work presented here was undertaken at Durham University with funding from RSPB and using bird range data provided by the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen. The MacArthur Foundation funded the production of these maps on this web-page. Improved presentation of these resources was facilitated through support by the GEF. Anyone wishing to use these maps for any purpose should contact Dr Stephen G. Willis in the School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences at Durham University.
