Data collected in 2016 study of undergraduate students participating in a citizen science research experience in a Wildlife Management Techniques course.


Steps to reproduce

Students designed their own bird monitoring study, conducted bird surveys, entered data into the South Texas Wintering Birds site, analyzed their data, and communicated their findings in a written report. Full details regarding the implementation of this CURE and related methods can be found in Ortiz et al. [2020]. The enrolled students were provided a consent form and completed both the written pre-survey and post-survey surrounding the implementation of the study. The pre-survey assessed their awareness of citizen science through the yes-or-no and open-response questions.
