How social are ornithologists?

The BOU's Steve Dudley and RSPB's Jen Smart presented a poster at NAOC2016 on the use of social media in ornithology. The poster is taken from their IBIS paper of the same title which looks at the rise of social media use by ornithologists and how this activity contributes to a research paper's Altmetric Attention Score.
