The bird surveys have been completed!

<media330|embed|right|legende|largeur=210>Between October 2011 and January 2012, on three different occasions, four ornithologists of GEPOG visited each of the 90 sampling points in the French Guianan coastal savannahs. Arriving at 6 a.m., survey work begins on the ground between 6:30–9:00 am, covering as many points as possible. Over a period of 20 minutes, GPS in hand to record the exact location, all the birds seen or heard are noted. For each species, the following information is recorded: the time at the first contact, the date, the weather, and the time of the start of the inventory.

GEPOG made over 4500 observations of more than 180 species. These data will now be analyzed together with the information collected on soils and vegetation as well as indices of human impact in order to identify any potential correlations.
