Population estimates for tidal marsh birds of high conservation concern in the northeastern USA from a design-based survey
ABSTRACT Tidal marsh loss to anthropogenic environmental impacts and climate change, particularly sea level rise, has and will continue to cause declines in tidal marsh bird populations. DistributionExpand

Modeling fecundity in birds: Conceptual overview, current models, and considerations for future developments
Fecundity is fundamental to the fitness, population dynamics, conservation, and management of birds. For all the efforts made to measure fecundity or its surrogates over the past century of avianExpand

High summer temperature explains bill size variation in salt marsh sparrows
Physiological factors are rarely proposed to account for variation in the morphology of feeding structures. Recently, bird bills have been demonstrated to be important convective and radiant heatExpand

The Analysis of Covariates in Multi-Fate Markov Chain Nest-Failure Models
In this manuscript we show how covariates may be included in Markov chain nest-failure models and illustrate this method using nest-monitoring data for Coastal Plain Swamp Sparrows (MelospizaExpand

Predictors of specialist avifaunal decline in coastal marshes
Coastal marshes are one of the world's most productive ecosystems. Consequently, they have been heavily used by humans for centuries, resulting in ecosystem loss. Direct human modifications such asExpand

Relationship of phenotypic variation and genetic admixture in the Saltmarsh–Nelson's sparrow hybrid zone
ABSTRACT Hybridization is influential in shaping species' dynamics and has many evolutionary and conservation implications. Identification of hybrid individuals typically relies on morphologicalExpand

Bidirectional adaptive introgression between two ecologically divergent sparrow species
Natural hybrid zones can be used to dissect the mechanisms driving key evolutionary processes by allowing us to identify genomic regions important for establishing reproductive isolation and thatExpand

Landscape-scale habitat availability, and not local geography, predicts migratory landbird stopover across the Gulf of Maine
While it is clear that many migratory behaviors are shared across taxa, generalizable models that predict the distribution and abundance of migrating taxa at the landscape scale are rare. InExpand
