Bird species assemblages across a rural urban gradient around Kolkata, India
Urban development leads to changes in habitat structure and resource base. Bird communities are known to respond sharply to such changes. Our result from study of bird community along urbanization
Effect of Urbanization on the Abundance and Distribution of Tree Sparrows (Passer montanus) in Beijing
TLDR
Highly urbanized areas are not suitable habitats for the Tree Sparrow, although this species can adapt to human environments, and food and nest sites should be considered in urban planning of big cities in developing countries.
Habitat use of urban Tree Sparrows in the process of urbanization: Beijing as a case study
TLDR
The results show that the number of both breeding and wintering Tree Sparrows decreased with increasing urbanization, indicating that the Tree Sparrow had not adapted to rapid urbanization even though it is a generally adaptable species.
Urban Bird Diversity and Landscape Complexity: Species- environment Associations Along a Multiscale Habitat Gradient
TLDR
Both local- and landscape-scale resources were important in determining the distribution of birds in urban areas and should be integrated into urban planning and development designs to maintain resident avifauna and overall species diversity in urban environments.
