  author={Fulya Saygili and Nuri Yigit and Safak Bulut},
  journal={Turkish Journal of Zoology},
The waterbirds at 2 wetlands (Lakes Aksehir-Eber and Koycegiz) in western Turkey were compared to determine their spatial and temporal distributions along with their habitat characteristics. The waterbirds were evaluated according to whether they were residents, winter migrants, summer migrants, or transit migrants and were assigned to foraging behavior groups. At Lakes Aksehir-Eber, 67 waterbird species belonging to 17 families and 9 orders were observed, while at Lake Koycegiz 42 species…

In this study, species diversity of waterbirds, which are the indicator species of wetland quality were investigated at Obruk Dam Lake in Turkey, which was built in 1996 and started to operate in

Wetland Bird Assemblage in Rural Ponds of Kurukshetra, India

Abstract. Small sized, man-made, perennial and primarily rain-fed ponds occur widely in the rural landscape of India. These wetlands provide suitable habitats and food resources for a wide variety

Wetland Birds Assemblages in Man-Made Sacred Ponds of Kurukshetra, India

Wetland bird assemblages of four man-made, perennial and sacred ponds of Kurukshetra, Haryana, India were studied to assess the species composition and richness along with their seasonal variation

Comparison of waterbird species composition and habitat characteristics of two different wetlands of Malaysia

Waterbird species composition and habitat characteristics at two ecologically different wetlands (Paya Indah and Putrajaya) were compared in order to determine the habitat suitability of each

Morphometric and allozymic differences between Bearded Tit Panurus biarmicus (Aves: Passeriformes) subpopulations in a large wetland and a small pond in central Anatolia, Turkey

In this study, body weights and 12 morphometric characters were measured for Bearded Tit individuals in the Eber Lake and Behicbey reedbed subpopulations and genetic variation was assessed using isozyme systems.

Avifaunal diversity in unprotected wetlands of Ayodhya District, Uttar Pradesh, India

Nine unprotected wetlands of Ayodhya district, Uttar Pradesh, India were studied to assess the bird species composition and richness from March 2019 to February 2020 using point count method. A total



Spatial and Temporal Patterns of Waterbird Assemblages in Fragmented Wetlands of Southern Brazil

Abstract Understanding the composition and abundance pattern of species across sites is a central question in community ecology. However, the structure of waterbird assemblages in fragmented wetlands

Wintering bird communities in newly-formed wetland in the Yangtze River estuary

Wintering bird communities and their habitats among three shoals at Jiuduansha, a newly-formed wetland in the Yangtze River estuary, suggest that the newly- formed tidelands can provide suitable habitats for waterbirds and that the lower tideland can attract more waterfowl than the higher tidelanded.

Waterbird diversity, densities, communities and seasonality in the Kalahari Basin, Botswana

Abstract Surveys in all major wetlands in Botswana (52,127 birds of 104 species on 10,672 ha of water and along 1782 km of shoreline) showed that waterbird diversity (from rarefaction) and densities
