The influence of ENSO and rainfall on the numbers of breeding pairs in a woodland bird community from south-eastern Australia
Climate and rainfall in southern Australia are strongly influenced by the El Nino–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon. If breeding of forest birds is related to rainfall, then ENSO may influence fluctuations in breeding activity. We recorded the numbers of breeding pairs of 17 species over 17 years on a 10 ha forest plot near Moruya, NSW, in order to evaluate the influence of ENSO (as measured by the Southern Oscillation Index, SOI) and rainfall on yearly changes in breeding activity....[Show more]
