Post‐war changes in arable farming and biodiversity in Great Britain
Summary 1. Agriculture represents the dominant land use throughout much of western Europe, and a significant part of European biodiversity is associated with this habitat. We attempted to quantify
How effective are European agri‐environment schemes in conserving and promoting biodiversity?
Summary 1. Increasing concern over the environmental impact of agriculture in Europe has led to the introduction of agri-environment schemes. These schemes compensate farmers financially for any loss
Patterns of natal and breeding dispersal in birds
A significant positive relation was observed between breeding dispersal distance and long-term population decline among migrants, but not among residents, suggesting that this habitat variable does not impose the same constraint on natal dispersal.
The need for evidence-based conservation.
Understanding and managing conservation conflicts.
Ecological Census Techniques: A Handbook.
An essential reference for anyone involved in ecological research, this new edition of the best-selling Ecological Census Techniques covers everything you need to know in order to plan and carry out a census, and analyse the resulting data.
The Influence of Late Quaternary Climate-Change Velocity on Species Endemism
It is shown that low-velocity areas are essential refuges for Earth’s many small-ranged species and the association between endemism and velocity was weakest in the highly vagile birds and strongest in the weakly dispersing amphibians, linking dispersal ability to extinction risk due to climate change.
What Is the Allee Effect
This work proposes a definition for the Allee effect and attempts to resolve the major issues underlying the confusion surrounding this term.
