Map of predicted carrying capacity of the Eurasian Collared-Dove across the contiguous United States (Albers Equal Area Conic projection) based on the modeled relationships between Breeding Bird Survey population trajectories and climate and land cover data (see Table 1). Individual cells are 0.5° in each direction, and values represent the expected number of individuals observed on a BBS route within each cell for populations that have reached their carrying capacity.
