  • Bird data : Switzerland, Lucerne 

    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 : 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 : Portugal, Lisbon 

    Geraldes, P; Costa, H (Ginster Verlag, 2005)
  • 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 ...
  • Bird data : Germany, Hamburg 

    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 : Germany, Mainz

  • Bird data : French Guiana, Cayenne 

    Reynaud, Pierre Adrien; Thioulouse, Jean (IRD Senegal, 2000)
    This article examines the utility of particular bird species and guilds as bioindicators in a complex habitat mosaic, namely that of the tropical city of Cayenne (French Guyana). For this purpose, an urbanization gradient ...

  • Bird data : Australia, Brisbane 

    Sushinsky, Jessica R. (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 : Netherlands, Breda 

    van Iersel, Piet; van der Sanden, Agnes; van der Sanden, Hans; Veenhuizen, Willem (NPN Media B. V., 2009)
  • Bird data : Canada, Vancouver 

    Melles, Stephanie; Glenn, Susan; Martin, Kathy (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 ...

    Baker, Philip J.; Thomas, Rebecca L.; Newson, Stuart E.; Thompson, Victoria; Paling, Nick R. D. (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 ...

    Holzer, T; Sziemer, P (Ginster Verlag, 2005)
  • Bird data : UK, Sheffield 

    Fuller, Richard A.; Tratalos, Jamie; Gaston, Kevin J. (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 ...
