Bird abundance trends have been correlated with habitat changes in urban developed areas but have seldom been associated with specific patterns of urban-related habitat changes. We examined breedingExpand
Lizard species distributions and habitat occupation along an urban gradient in Tucson, Arizona, USA
Abstract Despite expanding human populations in metropolitan areas world-wide, habitat relationships of lizards have seldom been examined along urban gradients. We tested three hypotheses addressingExpand
Effects of small forest openings on the breeding bird community in a Vermont hardwood forest
We examined the response of a forest bird community to the presence of small openings created by patch clear-cutting 0.4-ha plots within an extensive northern hardwood forest. We conducted birdExpand
Characteristics of mule deer day-bed and forage sites in current-condition and restoration-treated ponderosa pine forest
Abstract We characterized microhabitat (structure and microclimate) at 236 mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) day-beds, 152 diurnal forage sites, and 439 random locations during summers of 1998–2000.Expand
Forest Restoration Treatment Effects on the Nesting Success of Western Bluebirds (Sialia mexicana)
We examined the effects of presettlement forest restoration treatments on the nesting success of Western Bluebirds in ponderosa pine forests of northwestern Arizona, U.S.A. From 1998 to 2001 weExpand
Forest Stand Characteristics Altered by Restoration Affect Western Bluebird Habitat Quality
Forest managers are setting Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests in the southwestern United States on a trajectory toward a restored ecosystem by reducing tree densities and managing withExpand
Efficacy of SpayVac® as a Contraceptive in Feral Horses
We tested the efficacy of 2 formulations of the immunocontraceptive SpayVac®, which packages the immunogen porcine zona pellucida (PZP) and an adjuvant in multilamellar liposomes, as a contraceptiveExpand
Effects of residential density on sonoran desert nocturnal rodents
We compared nocturnal rodent distributions among residential developments and in adjacent undeveloped native habitat remnants in Tucson, Arizona during October 1994. We trapped rodents in 2 lowExpand
Landbird community composition varies among seasons in a heterogeneous ponderosa pine forest
There is growing recognition of the need to conserve areas used by birds during migration, including forest and upland habitats. Because extensive thinning and burning treatments are planned forExpand
A Chance To Go Full Circle: Building on Reforms To Create Effective Learning.
As background for discussion of an educational research agenda for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), this paper reviews the role and purpose of school, recent social changes in NativeExpand
