  journal={Journal of International Society for Southeast Asian Agricultural Sciences},
We investigated the distribution of birds in the Thale Noi protected area of southern Thailand. The data comprised the numbers of particular species of birds sighted monthly at seven locations of the Thale Noi non-hunting area during 2004-2007, and site characteristics also were collected by field survey, focus group, and land-use data in 2000. Graphical methods were used to analyse the distributional pattern of incidence rate with species, site and season as determinant factors. The results… Expand

Diversity and Abundance of Bird Species in Mole National Park, Damongo, Ghana
The practice of bird watching aimed at avifauna conservation can be encouraged in the fringe communities such as; Morgnori, Larabanga and Murugu, to document and protect bird species to improve community livelihood. Expand
Diversity and Distribution of Waterbirds across Wetlands of Eastern Uganda
Explaining patterns of diversity, and abundance across sites is a central aim of community ecology. Avian communities have been the focus of many studies on species diversity. To be able to explainExpand
Using linear regression to measure bird abundance
The findings revealed that the log-linear model gives a quite satisfactory fit, so it appears a suitable type of model for bird abundance, and suggests that Cattle Egret was found at the Thale Noi non-hunting area with the highest incidence rate. Expand
Diversity, distribution and abundance of avifauna in respect to habitat types: a case study of Kilakala and Bigwa, Morogoro, Tanzania
The purpose of this dissertation was to find out the diversity, distribution and abundance of avifauna in respect to habitat types within Kilakala and Bigwa wards in Morogoro. The study was conductedExpand
Birds observed during the monitoring period of 2013-2017 in the revegetation area of ex-coal mining sites in South Kalimantan, Indonesia
The result shows that the older the vegetation age in the vegetated site, the greater the number of bird species utilizing the site. Expand


Population of Waterbirds in the Breeding Colony at Khuan Khi Sian, Thailand's First Ramsar Site
This study investigated the species composition, population size and population fluctuation of waterbirds in Melaleuca swamp forest at Khuan Khi Sian, Thale Noi Non-hunting Area, PhatthalungExpand
Distribution of forest birds in the Andaman islands: importance of key habitats
Aim The aim of this study was to assess the influence of island area, distance to source pool, latitude, habitat diversity and habitat type on species richness of forest birds in the Andaman islands.Expand
The importance of protected areas for the forest and endemic avifauna of Sulawesi (Indonesia).
The distinctiveness in bird species composition among protected areas highlights the importance of establishing a reserve network across major altitudinal zones so as to achieve maximum complementarity for the conservation of Sulawesi's unique avifauna. Expand
Effects of flooding on a wetland bird community
The Lake Izunuma–Uchinuma was extensively flooded in 1998 and vast areas (approximately 200 ha) of rice fields were submerged for the first time since the land was reclaimed in 1963. When the numbersExpand
The value of rice fields as substitutes for natural wetlands for waterbirds in the Mediterranean region.
-The natural wetlands of the Mediterranean have been reduced to 10-20% of their original area over the past few centuries. However, the rice fields that have supplanted them in some regions may beExpand
Factors Associated with Grassland Bird Species Richness: The Relative Roles of Grassland Area, Landscape Structure, and Prey
The factors responsible for widespread declines of grassland birds in the United States are not well understood. This study, conducted in the short-grass prairie of eastern Wyoming, was designed toExpand
We developed an index of biotic integrity based on bird communities in the central Appalachians. As one component of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Environmental Monitoring and AssessmentExpand
Hydrological disturbances, usually floods and drying, govern the distribution and abundance of biota and ecological processes in freshwater ecosystems. Reducing hydrological variability should reduceExpand
Climate and land-use influences on avifauna in central Argentina: Broad-scale patterns and implications of agricultural conversion for biodiversity
Climate and land use drive biodiversity patterns at large scales. Changes in these variables, either through increased atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations or conversion of land to agriculture,Expand
Zero tolerance ecology: improving ecological inference by modelling the source of zero observations.
A framework for understanding how zero-inflated data sets originate and deciding how best to model them is proposed and the different kinds of zeros that occur in ecological data are defined and classified. Expand
