How much abandoned farmland is required to harbor comparable species richness and abundance of birdcommunities in wetland? Hierarchical community model suggests the importance of habitat structure and landscape context
While wetlands have been converted into farmlands, large amounts of farmlands are now being abandoned, and this novel habitat is expected to be inhabited by species which depend on wetlands. Here we examined the effects of habitat and landscape variables on the densities of wetland bird species in abandoned farmlands. We surveyed birds in abandoned farmlands with different patch area, habitat, and landscape variables in Kushiro district, eastern Hokkaido, northern Japan. We also surveyed birds...[Show more]
