Effects of Local and Landscape Variables on Wetland Bird Habitat Use During Migration Through the Rainwater Basin
Abstract Staging areas and migratory stopovers of wetland birds can function as geographic bottlenecks; common dependence among migratory wetland bird species on these sites has major implicationsExpand

Effects of sediment removal on vegetation communities in Rainwater Basin playa wetlands.
Sedimentation from cultivated agricultural land use has altered the natural hydrologic regimes of depressional wetlands in the Great Plains. These alterations can negatively affect native wetlandExpand

Predictions of future ephemeral springtime waterbird stopover habitat availability under global change
In the present period of rapid, worldwide change in climate and landuse (i.e., global change), successful biodiversity conservation warrants proactive management responses, especially forExpand

Seed bank responses to wetland restoration: do restored wetlands resemble reference conditions following sediment removal?
Abstract Sedimentation and alterations of natural hydroperiods from watershed cultivation have affected most depressional wetlands in the Great Plains. This can result in altered plant communityExpand

Factors Influencing Behavior of Wetland Birds in the Rainwater Basin during Spring Migration
Abstract. As little is known about specific factors influencing wetland birds during migration, the effects of time period, hunting pressure, and year on wetland bird behavior were evaluated duringExpand
