We investigated the factors structuring lake shore bird assemblages of the northeastern U.S.A. using data collected from 158 lakes between 1992 and 1994. The assemblage data were aggregated and standardized to produce assemblage compositions consisting of proportions of individuals employing different foraging, dietary, and migratory strategies. The assemblage data were then re-expressed using compositional analysis techniques and subjected to regression tree analysis to identify environmental… CONTINUE READING
