Do mute swan (Cygnus olor) grazing, swan residence and fishpond nutrient availability interactively control macrophyte communities?
The mute swan (Cygnus olor Gmelin) is one of the largest herbivorous waterbirds in the world. Its population increased dramatically over the last decades in Western Europe, leading to concerns aboutExpand

Effects of cropping practices on the use of rice fields by waterbirds in the Camargue, France
The abundance of waterbirds was compared in 46 rice fields in relation with the age of the field and the planting practices in spring. Of the 29 species censused, Charadriiformes represented someExpand

Uselessness and indirect negative effects of an insecticide on rice field invertebrates.
Macro-invertebrate assemblages on organic and conventional rice fields were quantitatively compared in the Camargue (Rhone delta, France). There was no major difference in family richness, butExpand

Impact of grazing on the species richness of plant communities in Mediterranean temporary pools (western Morocco).
The impact of grazing on the vegetation of Moroccan temporary pools has been studied at 2 scales: regional (inter-pools) and local (intra-pools). Half of the 16 forest pools studied is located in aExpand
