Functional Richness and Relative Resilience of Bird Communities in Regions with Different Land Use Intensities

Fischer, Joern; Lindenmayer, David; Blomberg, Simon Phillip; Montague-Drake, Rebecca; Felton, Adam; Stein, John


Empirical estimates of the function and resilience of communities under different management regimes can provide valuable information for sustainable natural resource management, but such estimates are scarce to date. We quantified the functional richness and relative resilience of bird communities inhabiting five regions in southeastern Australia that represented different management regimes. First, we show that functional richness and relative resilience were reduced at species-poor sites in...[Show more]
