About UrBioNet:
  • UrBioNet has been established to develop a network that brings together researchers, practitioners, and students with an interest in biodiversity in cities. The network provides a forum for discussion, data sharing, and collaboration on topics relevant to urban biodiversity research, management, design, and planning.--UrBioNet website (viewed March 6, 2018)

  • 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 ...
  • Bird data : Sweden, Örebro 

    Sandström, Ulf; Angelstam, Per; Mikusinski, Grzegorz (Elsevier, 2006)
    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 ...

  • Bird data : Kenya, Nairobi 

    Njoroge, J. B.; Nda’nganga, P. K. (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 : France, Montpellier 

    Amparo Caula Quinteiro, Sabina; Marty, Pascal; Martin, Jean-Louis (Elsevier, 2008)
    We studied the richness and composition of diurnal birds in relation to the percentage of built surfaces in an urban area of Mediterranean France and analyzed their seasonal variation. We recorded 61 species and identified ...

  • Bird data : South Africa, Potchefstroom 

    Smith, Nicoleen Celeste (M.S. Thesis, North-West University, Potchefstroom, 2005)
    Human activities cause drastic changes in the environment, such as the fragmentation of habitats, which is the greatest threat to the world's biodiversity and biogeography. By using birds to study habitat changes, it is ...

  • Bird data : Switzerland, Lugano 

    Sattler, Thomas; Borcard, Daniel; Arlettaz, Raphael; Bontadina, Fabio; Legendre, P.; Obrist, M. K.; Moretti, Marco (Wiley on behalf of the Ecological Society of America, 2010)
    Spatially organized distribution patterns of species and communities are shaped by both autogenic processes (neutral mechanism theory) and exogenous processes (niche theory). In the latter, environmental variables that are ...
  • Bird data : Germany, Leipzig 

    Strohbach, Michael W.; Haase, Dagmar; Kabisch, Nadja (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 : Bolivia, La Paz 

    Villegas, Mariana; Garitano-Zavala, Alvaro (Springer, 2010)
    Urbanization alters ecosystems worldwide, but little is known about its effects in the Neotropical region. In the present research we examined the relative influence of different levels of urbanization and of some urban ...

  • Bird data : USA, Fresno, California 

    Schleder, Bradley W. (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 : Jerusalem 

    Bino, Galad; Levin, Noam; Darawshi, Sameh; van der Hal, Noam; Reich-Solomon, Aderet; Kark, Salit (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 ...
