Avian diversity in arid Australia : patterns in species richness and composition across varied assemblages and environments

Reid, Julian Robert Wishart

Description

I studied avian diversity in three regions of arid Australia, namely Cooper Creek (northern South Australia), and the MacDonnell Ranges and Lake Mackay in the southern Northern Territory. The primary objectives of the study were to document the major correlates of bird species richness and compositional turnover, as measures of alpha and beta diversity, and to see if gradients in both covaried. I tested the hypotheses that primary productivity has ultimate control on bird diversity and...[Show more]
