Bird data : Kenya, Nairobi
(Nairobi : Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Research Production and Extension Division, 2010)
The landscape structure of Nairobi city is experiencing rapid transformation as once wild and pristine spaces are converted to anthropocentric uses. In order to understand how the changing urban structure affects urban ...
Bird data : Russia, Moscow
(Ginster Verlag, 2005)
Bird data : USA, Tucson, Arizona
(Eagle Hill Publications, 2005)
Long-term monitoring projects and studies designed to survey large, variable areas often face a similar challenge: data collection. Researchers can sometimes overcome this obstacle by designing studies that utilize the ...
Bird data : Canada, Ottawa
(Ottawa Breeding Bird Count, 2011)
We have only a basic understanding of how urban development affects native bird populations. Citizens, planners, and developers will all benefit from having access to rigorously collected and quantified baseline observations. ...
Bird data : Jerusalem
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
Urban landscapes are expanding rapidly and are reshaping the distribution of many animal and plant species. With these changes, the need to understand and to include urban biodiversity patterns in research and management ...
LIS Research into Discovery: 2009-2013
Data were collected: April 2015-August 2015.
Partitioning detectability components in populations subject to within-season temporary emigration using binomial mixture models
Detectability of individual animals is highly variable and nearly always < 1; imperfect detection must be accounted for to reliably estimate population sizes and trends. Hierarchical models can simultaneously estimate ...
Bird data : Australia, Brisbane
(Thesis, University of Queensland, 2011)
Unprecedented loss of global biodiversity driven by anthropogenic actives continues, and in response governments and researchers around the world have prioritised efforts to slow the continued decline in species diversity. ...
Bird data : Germany, Berlin
Bird data : Canada, Vancouver
(Resilience Alliance Inc., 2003)
For birds in urban environments, the configuration of local habitat within the landscape may be as critical as the composition of the local habitat itself. We examined the relative importance of environmental attributes ...
Bird data : UK, Sheffield
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2009)
Urban environments are often characterized as supporting a few abundant, generalist species best adapted to living alongside humans, and as such, cities are seen as agents of biotic homogenization. However, there are ...
Intersectionality in LGBT fiction: A comparison of a traditional library vendor and a nontraditional ebook platform : dataset
Two datasets used to analyze intersectionality in LGBT fiction, comparing works available from a traditional library vendor to self-published ebooks. OASIS sample includes 200 records; source is OASIS (the ordering platform ...
Bird data : UK, Bristol
(Taylor & Francis, 2010)
Different urban breeding bird communities are associated with different habitat types, but, although community species diversity varies significantly, total bird density does not. Aims: To investigate the association ...
Bird data : USA, Fresno, California
(M.S. Thesis, University of California, Fresno, 2010)
The availability of water is arguably the most important landscape factor, particularly in arid climates. Homeowner decisions regarding irrigation are likely to have a direct effect on bird species richness. Previous ...
Bird data : Portugal, Lisbon
(Ginster Verlag, 2005)
Bird data : Germany, Leipzig
(Resilience Alliance Inc., 2009)
We examined bird diversity in relation to land use and socioeconomic indicators in Leipzig, Germany. We used neighborhood diversity (ND) and bivariate correlation to show that the potential to experience biodiversity in a ...
Bird data : Bulgaria, Sofia
(Ginster Verlag, 2005)
Bird data : Poland, Warsaw
(Museum and Institute of Zoology, Polish Academy of Sciences, 2005)
Avifaunas of three large cities (Hamburg, Berlin and Warsaw) situated in the northern lowlands of Central Europe along an 850-km-long west-east line were compared. Estimates of several species’ breeding populations in these ...
Bird data : Brazil, Porto Alegre
Cities are highly modified environments in which the only areas that resemble natural landscapes are urban parks with low human population density. Attempts are frequently made to maintain high bird diversity in cities for ...
Bird data : Sweden, Örebro
A functional network of green space is important for the maintenance of the ecological dimension of a sustainable urban landscape. We used avian ecological diversity as a proxy for evaluating the functionality of different ...
