Forest edges can strongly affect avian nest success by altering nest predation rates, but this relationship is inconsistent and context dependent. There is a need for researchers to improve the predictability of edge effects on nest predation rates by examining the mechanisms driving their occurrence and variability. In this study, we examined how the(More)
Predicting and managing edge effects requires an understanding of the mechanisms that drive them. However, analytical methods that dominate edge effects research are not well suited to discriminating mechanisms, because they do not measure ‘indirect’ edge effects: effects that are mediated by covariates in statistical models. To discuss the value of(More)
