POPULATION ECOLOGY OF A HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE AQUATIC SALAMANDER (SIREN INTERMEDIA)
TLDR
This is the first field study of any sirenid salamander, unusual among vertebrates in being both an early colonizer and dominant species in at least two different successional stages of a single community. Expand
Nest-site preferences of Flammulated Owls in western New Mexico
TLDR
Study of nest-site preferences of Flammulated Owls in the Zuni Mountains of western New Mexico used multivariate analyses of the nest cavity, nest tree, and surrounding woody vegetation to ask if and then how the birds select nest sites to indicate that the birds are selective. Expand
Life‐History Variation Predicts the Effects of Demographic Stochasticity on Avian Population Dynamics
TLDR
It is shown that interspecific variation in demographic stochasticity can be predicted from a knowledge of the species’ position along a “slow‐fast” gradient of life‐history variation, ranging from high reproductive species with short life expectancy at one end to species that often produce a single offspring but survive well at the other end of the continuum.

Investigation, evaluation, and priority ranking of natural areas
Abstract Texas experience suggests that amateur naturalists will be heavily involved in preliminary ecological surveys of natural areas, hence a simple key for identification of community-types isExpand
Mobbing of eastern screech-owls: predatory cues, risk to mobbers and degree of threat
TLDR
If the mobbers of Eastern Screech-Owls correctly assess risk as some European birds do, males and permanent residents should respond to the owls' monotonic trills more often, longer, or more intensely than its descending trills, especially in the spring near nests. Expand
