Does the stork bring home the owl? Dusky Eagle‐Owls Bubo coromandus breeding on Woolly‐necked Stork Ciconia episcopus nests

We documented nests built by Woolly‐necked Storks, a large waterbird, being preferentially reused by Dusky Eagle‐Owls, a large raptor, with nest sites located close to irrigation canals in Haryana,

Spatial Differentiation and Driving Mechanism of Agricultural Multifunctions in Economically Developed Areas: A Case Study of Jiangsu Province, China

Revealing the spatial patterns of differentiation and the driving mechanism of agricultural multifunctional patterns is an important aspect of coordinating the functional optimisation and coordinated

Nesting habitat suitability and breeding of Asian woollyneck (Ciconia episcopus) in Nepal

Asian woollyneck (Ciconia episcopus) is a large wading bird species whose conservation status has been recently down-listed, despite a lack of concrete information on its nesting ecology and breeding



Dynamic multistate occupancy modeling to evaluate population dynamics under a scenario of preferential sampling

population dynamics a of preferential Abstract. Effective conservation of animal populations depends on the availability of reliable data derived from rigorous monitoring protocols, which allows us

Higher yields and more biodiversity on smaller farms

Small farms constitute most of the world’s farms and are a central focus of sustainable agricultural development. However, the relationship between farm size and production, profitability,

Nest-site selection by the white-tailed eagle and black stork – implications for conservation practice

Background Nesting trees and habitat represent the key factor underpinning stand selection by forest-dwelling birds. While two large European species – the black stork ( Ciconia nigra L.) and

Structural implications of traditional agricultural landscapes on the functional diversity of birds near the Korean Demilitarized Zone

To conserve and enhance the diversity of birds in traditional agricultural landscapes of Northeast Asia, active management of forest areas is needed to protect bird populations and provide landscape management guidance for conservation planning.

Ciconiiformes Nesting on Trees in Cereal-Dominated Farmlands: Importance of Scattered Trees for Heronries in Lowland Nepal

Abstract. Cereal farming is on the increase globally, and trees on these agricultural landscapes are selectively removed by farmers. Waterbird populations, supported on many cereal farmlands, need

First assessment of factors affecting the breeding success of two stork species in lowland Nepal using Bayesian Network models

Agricultural landscapes in south Asia have high human densities, experience year-round cropping, and the few remaining wetlands experience heavy human use. Factors affecting the breeding success of
