Landscape-level Patterns of Avian Diversity in the Oregon Coast Range

  title={Landscape-level Patterns of Avian Diversity in the Oregon Coast Range},
  author={Samuel A. Cushman and Kevin McGarigal},
We used a comparative mensurative landscape-level experiment to quantify the relative importance of mature forest area and fragmentation and differences among watersheds in influencing avian community diversity in the Oregon Coast Range, USA. Our study design included three large hydrological basins, two levels of fragmentation, and six levels of mature forest area. We recorded 82 species of birds in a total of 1046 plots in 30 landscapes. Our four response variables were species richness… CONTINUE READING
