How can wastelands promote biodiversity in cities ? A review.
Urbanisation leads to natural habitats being fragmented with various effects according to the species and their ecological characteristics. Paradoxically, the urbanisation process creates relativelyExpand

Contrasting spatial and temporal responses of bird communities to landscape changes
Quantifying the impact of land-use changes on biodiversity is a major challenge in conservation ecology. Static spatial relationships between bird communities and agricultural landscapes have beenExpand

Temporal Beta Diversity of Bird Assemblages in Agricultural Landscapes: Land Cover Change vs. Stochastic Processes
Temporal variation in the composition of species assemblages could be the result of deterministic processes driven by environmental change and/or stochastic processes of colonization and localExpand

Residents’ perceptions and valuations of urban wastelands are influenced by vegetation structure
Abstract Among the different urban green spaces, wastelands are valuable spaces for conserving urban biodiversity. By hosting wild and spontaneous vegetation, wastelands can promote the contactExpand

Point count duration: five minutes are usually sufficient to model the distribution of bird species and to study the structure of communities for a French landscape
The point count method is very widely used for estimating bird abundances. In studies of bird–environment relationships, the duration used for point counts varies considerably from one study toExpand

Bird metacommunity processes remain constant after 25 years of landscape changes
Abstract Metacommunity theory provides a framework to understand how ecological communities vary in space and time. However, few studies have investigated metacommunity processes in a context of longExpand

Assessing Community-Level and Single-Species Models Predictions of Species Distributions and Assemblage Composition after 25 Years of Land Cover Change
To predict the impact of environmental change on species distributions, it has been hypothesized that community-level models could give some benefits compared to species-level models. In this studyExpand

Modeling bird communities using unclassified remote sensing imagery: Effects of the spatial resolution and data period
Abstract In this paper we assess the capacity of satellite images to explain and predict bird community patterns in farm-wood landscapes in southwestern France. Our goal is to examine the effect ofExpand

Is there an optimum scale for predicting bird species' distribution in agricultural landscapes?
Changes in forest cover in agricultural landscapes affect biodiversity. Its management needs some indications about scale to predict occurrence of populations and communities. In this study weExpand

Spatial and Temporal Dependency of NDVI Satellite Imagery in Predicting Bird Diversity over France
In this paper, we investigated the influence of acquisition time period of NDVI to explain and predict bird community patterns over France. Expand
