Effects of forest disturbance and habitat loss on avian communities in a Neotropical biodiversity hotspot
It is shown that regenerating patches surrounded by contiguous forest can sustain high biodiversity levels and, when past habitat disturbance is mild, present similar communities to old-growth forests; in contrast, forest loss caused reductions in richness, profound changes in community composition, and loss of species of conservation concern.
