Challenging claims in the study of migratory birds and climate change
Recent shifts in phenology in response to climate change are well established but often poorly understood. Many animals integrate climate change across a spatially and temporally dispersed annualExpand

Long-Term Changes and Breeding Success in Relation to Nesting Structures used by the White Stork, Ciconia ciconia
Anthropogenic changes have strongly influenced the European landscape. In the last 50 years electric power-line networks have become a conspicuous part of that landscape. From the outset it was knownExpand

Generation time and temporal scaling of bird population dynamics
Theoretical studies have shown that variation in density regulation strongly influences population dynamics, yet our understanding of factors influencing the strength of density dependence in naturalExpand

High urban population density of birds reflects their timing of urbanization
Living organisms generally occur at the highest population density in the most suitable habitat. Therefore, invasion of and adaptation to novel habitats imply a gradual increase in populationExpand

Can roads, railways and related structures have positive effects on birds? – A review
The urbanization process affects faunal distributions and movement patterns, contributing directly to biotic homogenization and representing an important threat to biodiversity. In particular, birds,Expand

How consistent are trends in arrival (and departure) dates of migrant birds in the UK?
We examine the first arrival and last departure dates of migrant bird species from, respectively, six and three English area bird reports. Of all 145 bird series, 50% demonstrated significantlyExpand
