Contrasting spatial and temporal responses of bird communities to landscape changes

  title={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 been extensively studied. Yet, their ability to mirror the effects of temporal land-use dynamics remains to be demonstrated. Here, we test whether such space-for-time substitution approaches are relevant for explaining temporal variations in farmland bird communities. We surveyed 256 bird communities in an… CONTINUE READING
