  • Anthropogenic effects on soil physical, chemical, and biological properties in the Missouri Ozarks 

    Taylor, Alexander W. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
    The maintenance of healthy forest ecosystems is critical to ensuring the sustainability of forest harvest activities. Forest soil health is a critical component of the knowledge required to manage a forest ecosystem; ...
  • Heterogeneity in body condition, survival, and seasonal origins among lesser snow and Ross’s geese 

    Fowler, Drew N. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
    Individual heterogeneity in fitness within a population is well established and provides the required variability for natural selection to take place. Yet, in the case of overabundant midcontinent lesser snow (Anser ...
  • Habitat selection and movement by spotted bass and shorthead redhorse downstream of a hydropeaking dam in Missouri 

    Baebler, Elisa Neri (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
    Flow alteration caused by hydropeaking dams may disrupt the natural flow regime and impact physical habitat and biological community, thus threatening the health of freshwater ecosystems. Life history strategies of fish ...
  • Bird data : Poland, Warsaw 

    Witt, Klaus; Mitschke, Alexander; Luniak, Maciej (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 : Singapore 

    Wang, Luan Kang; Hails, Chris J. (National University of Singapore. Dept. of Zoology, 2007)

  • Bird data : South Africa, Pretoria 

    van Rensburg, Berndt J.; Peacock, Derick S.; Robrtson, Mark P. (Elsevier, 2009)
    Similar to the process seen in invasion biology, urbanized environments lead to biotic homogenization with a few species, often alien, dominating the urban habitat. We investigated avian communities across an urban gradient ...
  • Bird data : Brazil, Porto Alegre 

    Fontana, Carla Suertegaray; Burger, Maria Inês; Magnusson, William E. (Springer, 2011)
    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 ...
