Registros relevantes de aves acuáticas en Bahía de La Paz, Baja California Sur, México

En 2012, en la Ensenada de La Paz, al sur de la Península de Baja California, del 29 de marzo al 18 de julio, observamos al menos seis individuos de Platalea ajaja, tres adultos y tres subadultos

Analysis of movement recursions to detect reproductive events and estimate their fate in central place foragers

By providing a method to formally distinguish among revisited locations that serve different ecological functions and introducing a probabilistic framework to quantify temporal persistence of movement recursions, it is demonstrated how the analysis of recursive movement patterns can be applied to estimate reproduction in central place foragers.

Joint seasonality in geographic and ecological spaces, illustrated with a partially migratory bird

An exploratory framework to jointly investigate a species’ niche in geographic and ecological spaces, applied to Wood Storks, suggested that tracking climate alone did not explain seasonal distributions of Wood Stork in breeding and non-breeding areas.

Partial migration in a subtropical wading bird in the southeastern United States

. The function of migration is to allow exploitation of resources whose availability is heterogeneous in space and time. Much effort has been historically directed to studying migration as a response

Nest-site detection and estimation of avian reproductive outcome from GPS-tracking data

A method to locate breeding attempts and estimate their outcome from avian GPS-tracking data, implemented in the R package ‘nestR’ is introduced and can be broadly applied to estimate individual reproductive outcome in a variety of central place foragers, bridging the gap between movement behavior, environmental factors, and their fitness consequences.

Partial migration in a subtropical wading bird in the Southeastern U.S.

It is found that the wood stork population is partially migratory, with 59% of individuals seasonally commuting between winter ranges in Florida and summer ranges elsewhere in the population range (migrants), and 28% remaining in a single area in Florida year-round (residents).

The ornithology of the Baudin expedition (1800-1804)

The expedition commanded by Nicolas Baudin to Tenerife, Mauritius, Australia, Timor and South Africa in 1800-1804 is fully researched in regard to ornithology. The expedition was government-funded

Considerations for monitoring population trends of colonial waterbirds using the effective number of breeders and census estimates

Which methods of the estimation of N b are more precise under conditions of moderate genetic diversity, limited sample sizes and few microsatellite loci, as often occurs with natural populations are investigated.

Effects of habitat suitability for vectors, environmental factors and host characteristics on the spatial distribution of the diversity and prevalence of haemosporidians in waterbirds from three Brazilian wetlands

The map of habitat suitability showed that wetlands located in a 30° latitudinal range offer similar conditions for avian vectors species and diversity of haemosporidians.



Breeding populations of the wood stork in the southeastern United States

Wood Storks (Mycteria americana) in the southeastern United States decreased from 10,000 breeding pairs in 1960 to 2,500-5,000 pairs in the late 1970s. The number of breeding pairs appeared to

Genetic variation and population structure of the Florida Wood Stork

Assessment of the dispersal and fate of adult storks following colony abandonment and patterns of population structure are examined to assess the effects of colony-site shifts on stork population structure.

Spatial Relationships between Nesting Colonies and Foraging Areas of Great Blue Herons

--I examined spatial relationships between nesting colonies of Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias) and their aquatic foraging areas by synthesizing data from a survey of nesting colonies, a study of

Importance of landscape heterogeneity to wood storks in Florida Everglades

Simulation results showed a threshold response in reproductive success to reduction of wetland heterogeneity, indicating hypothesis 2 may be a more likely explanation than hypothesis 1 for declines in populations of and reproductive success of wood storks in the Florida Everglades.
