Bird scorecard system

My uni housemate has just published some scientific research worthy of Science, one of the most highly regarded scientific journals. The work is even of such interest to the general population that even the bbc have reported on it:

He's developed a method of scoring the biodiversity of the bird population and the effects of various farming methods on bird populations. Enabling the prediction of species that will become endangered dependent on the farming and eco-stewardship methods employed. A very useful tool, with some interesting results on the impact of farming GM crops.
