Detailed performance of biased runs against Static under three scenarios. For each of the 104 observedbird species the charts compare the number of questions required for Static with the number of questions required by one ofseven algorithm settings: 2000–2005, and 2005_4. Bars above the zeroline indicate that the biased runs required more questions than Static. Bars below zero indicate that Biased outperformed Static. The ordinate scale is number of questions required beyond Static (positive bars) or saved against Static (negative bars). The top panel compares Static against the worst performing biased setting for each species. The middle panel compares Static against the best performing setting, and the bottom panel compares against the mean of all seven biased settings for each species. Note that the panels have different ordinate scale ranges (5→-4, 1→-5, and 3→-5).
