Vanishing bird species in the Atlantic Forest: relative importance of landscape configuration, forest structure and species characteristics

  title={Vanishing bird species in the Atlantic Forest: relative importance of landscape configuration, forest structure and species characteristics},
  author={Alexandre Uezu and Jean Paul Walter Metzger},
  journal={Biodiversity and Conservation},
Patch size, isolation, and vegetation structure are expected to strongly affect species persistence in fragmented landscapes, particularly for those with <30% of native habitat remaining. Those influences should be modulated by species characteristics, resulting in complex relationships. In order to investigate how species, habitat structure and landscape factors are related and how they affected species persistence, we studied bird communities in a fragmented Atlantic Forest region. Patch size… CONTINUE READING
