Description :
Bird counts along transects carried out by Pierre Souvairan (1921-1998) from June 1991 to September 1993 at Buanyuantula (spelled Boignontoula in OpenStreetMap), Makalondi, Niger, near the Kulbu pools. Patrick Giraudoux helped Pierre Souvairan to design the protocol during his stays in Dijon, France. Patrick Giraudoux (in December 1991) and Dominique Michelat (in July-August 1995) visited Pierre Souvairan once on the spot at Buanyuantula, then digitized and secured the data.

General metadata

Data acquisition date : from 10 Jun 1991 to 20 Sep 1993
Data acquisition methods :
  • Observational data :
    Two transect strips were walked, corresponding to grids of 100 x 100 m mesh. Each transect was walked along a line crossing the grid, observing birds at maximum 50 m on each side of the transect line.

    - The NS strip corresponds to a 2.5 km x 200 m strip. The grid consists in two contiguous sub-strips (one north, one south of 100 x 100 m mesh each) stretching E - W between Buanyuantula and the Kulbu pools depression. Three 2.5 km transects lines were walked: one "N" in the middle of the northern strip, one "M", median, at the common border of the two strips, one "S" in the middle of the southern strip.

    - Transects B, for "bas-fond" (wetland), has two discrete segments 01B-10B and 16B-25B, and was walked at the higher water limit of the Kulbu pools area.
