Impact of Food and Predation on the Snowshoe Hare Cycle
Snowshoe hare populations in the boreal forests of North America go through 10-year cycles. Supplemental food and mammalian predator abundance were manipulated in a factorial design onExpand
NEST SITES AND NEST WEBS FOR CAVITY-NESTING COMMUNITIES IN INTERIOR BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA: NEST CHARACTERISTICS AND NICHE PARTITIONING
Abstract The mixed forests of interior British Columbia, Canada, support a rich community of cavity nesters, accounting for about one-third of forest vertebrate species. For 20 cavity-nesting birdExpand
Urban Bird Diversity and Landscape Complexity: Species- environment Associations Along a Multiscale Habitat Gradient
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 ofExpand
Woodpeckers, decay, and the future of cavity-nesting vertebrate communities worldwide
In forests worldwide, tree-cavity supply can limit populations of the 10–40% of bird and mammal species that require cavities for nesting or roosting. Conservation efforts aimed at cavity-usingExpand
Patterns and Mechanisms for Age-dependent Reproduction and Survival in Birds
SYNOPSIS. The majority of bird species exhibit age-dependent survival and reproduction. In almost all cases, first time breeders or young individuals perform at a lower and slower rate than olderExpand
Nest webs: A community-wide approach to the management and conservation of cavity-nesting forest birds
Abstract We propose that cavity-nesting bird communities are structured in nest webs analogous to food webs, where interspecific and intraspecific interactions are centered around nest siteExpand
Supply of tree-holes limits nest density of cavity-nesting birds in primary and logged subtropical Atlantic forest
Abstract Tree cavities are proposed to limit populations and structure communities of cavity-nesting birds. Although the greatest diversity of cavity-nesting birds is found in tropical andExpand
Selection of Nest Trees by Cavity-nesting Birds in the Neotropical Atlantic Forest
One of the five most important global biodiversity hotspots, the Neotropical Atlantic forest supports a diverse community of birds that nest in tree cavities. Cavitynesting birds may be particularlyExpand
NEST-SITE REUSE PATTERNS FOR A CAVITY-NESTING BIRD COMMUNITY IN INTERIOR BRITISH COLUMBIA
Abstract Most obligate cavity-nesting birds are considered to be nest-site limited, either by time or energy to excavate or to acquire suitable holes for nesting. We examined rates of nest-cavityExpand
Nest cavity availability and selection in aspenconifer groves in a grassland landscape
Cavity-nesting vertebrates, a significant component of forest wildlife communities, are connected ecologically in nest webs arranged in guilds of cavity producers (strong and weak excavators) andExpand
