It has been well documented that the human manipulation of Southwestern habitats greatly affects the configuration of the avian community that will continue to utilize the area (e.g., Carothers et al. 1974. Carothers and Johnson 1975). These studies have prima­ rily concerned themselves with phreatophyte control, channelization, and other water management practices. Very little research has dealt with the impact caused by the con­ struction of permanent structures and human occupation of these… Expand

Habitat and Avian Diversity on Strip-Mined Land in East-Central Illinois
In the past many studies of bird populations have concentrated on describing species composition and population sizes of avian aggregations. These studies usually included brief descriptions of theExpand
Breeding Birds of Desert Riparian Habitat in Southern Nevada
Few studies of bird populations have been undertaken in desert communities. Previous studies in North American warm deserts were conducted by Hutchinson and Hutchinson (1941, 1942), Robert (1967),Expand
Bird Populations of the Highlands (North Carolina) Plateau in Relation to Plant Succession and Avian Invasion
TLDR
Birds, during the breeding season at least, are proving to be favorable subjects for the study of population dynamics in nature, and population measurements of major communities of the southeastern United States are especially needed, since few censuses from this region have been published. Expand
An Analysis of Avifaunas in the Teton Mountains and Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Faunal analyses may be made for several purposes: to reveal ecologic characteristics of a community either of present times or, as is done by paleontologists, of past ages (Miller, 1937); toExpand
On the Relation between Habitat Selection and Species Diversity
TLDR
Puerto Rico has nearly as many bird species per layer as Panama and the temperate regions, but the Puerto Rican species appear to recognize fewer layers and certainly subdivide habitats much less, so different habitats are likely to have quite similar species in Puerto Rico, unlike Panama and temperate United States. Expand
Structure of Avian Communities in Selected Panama and Illinois Habitats
TLDR
Determination of the biomass and energy relations for the bird populations showed that higher total population size in tropical areas is correlated with smaller bird size and reduced individual energy requirements, and the major factor related to the increased diversity of tropical avifaunas seems to be the relative stability of food resources resulting from environments that are more or less "equitable" throughout the year. Expand
Population Structure and Social Organization of Southwestern Riparian Birds
TLDR
The differences in population density and average weights of birds found in the two habitat types are suggested to be a result of the following: (i) relative productivity of areas adjacent to the riparian habitat, and (ii) degree of intra- and interspecific competition effected by avian populations found breeding in areas adjacent.

On Bird Species Diversity. II. Prediction of Bird Census from Habitat Measurements
TLDR
In the present paper foliage profiles acceptable to many bird species are measured and compared with those available as patches in various habitats, and the hypothesis that each species requires a "patch" of vegetation with a particular profile for its selected habitat is tested. Expand
THE BREEDING SEASONS OF EUROPEAN BIRDS.
TLDR
Proximate factors provide a physiological timing mechanism whereby the gonads recrudesce, and eggs are laid, at such a time that, on the average, the young hatch at a season when there is sufficient food to raise them. Expand

TLDR
A need for better data on density dependent regulation of mosquito populations is suggested, as biological control of mosquitoes appears to be inherently unstable, thus contrasting sharply with classical biological control. Expand
