Define a filter for the eBird Basic Dataset (EBD) to extract data for a set of Bird Conservation Regions (BCRs). BCRs are ecologically distinct regions in North America with similar bird communities, habitats, and resource management issues. This function only defines the filter and, once all filters have been defined, auk_filter() should be used to call AWK and perform the filtering.

auk_bcr(x, bcr, replace = FALSE)

Arguments

x

auk_ebd or auk_sampling object; reference to file created by auk_ebd() or auk_sampling().

bcr

integer; BCRs to filter by. BCRs are identified by an integer, from 1 to 66, that can be looked up in the bcr_codes table.

replace

logical; multiple calls to auk_state() are additive, unless replace = FALSE, in which case the previous list of states to filter by will be removed and replaced by that in the current call.

Value

An auk_ebd object.

Details

This function can also work with on an auk_sampling object if the user only wishes to filter the sampling event data.
